    So I seen a lot of question and noticed some player might not know all the advanced tech available in Splatoon so I thought I create a list of them to serve as a definitive (xenoblade did so I can too) guide for new players
    Plz list any I may have miss in the comment

    Burst cancel: By throwing a burst bomb in the after attack an enemy you can cancel the firing animation of your weapon
    *Originally discovered in S1 on the the vanilla bucket

    Splatterdash: By quickly tapping zr while jumping out of squid form you can create puddles of ink to sneak through enemy ink or quickly reach a point

    Snapping: By hiding your charger behind cover and snapping to your target you give the enemy less chance to react

    Scope cancel: You can cancel the animation of the scope instantly by quickly press the sub button

    Sharking: Most noted for hiding in a point with a roller, you can move unnoticed by tapping the control stick lightly to avoid creating ripples (essentially gaining ninja squid)

    Hitzeling: discovered by the @Hitzel uses beacon and superjumping (with QSP or Sub up) to quickly maneuver around the battlefield

    Sub Strafing: By pressing zr mid swim you can cancel the turnaround animation, good for cornering or changing momentum

    Momentun cancel: All your mometum is instantly canceled by a dodge roll so you can your jump or your swim animation by tapping zr and dodge rolling away

    PBurst: (Discovered by me)
    Explosher has 2 reticles (1 for direct and one for splash), by aiming the main reticle at the center of the enemy and the secondary at the feet you can deal 90 dmg in a single hit

    Ledge cancelling (mentioned in a video by Wadsm) : by releasing ZL when going over the top of a claimable surface, you can stop the animation where you shoot over the edge. This can also be achieved by charging a splatling or charger, or firing a shot from a non-cooldown weapon.
