    Welcome to the break room.

    Figure we needed a spot to kick back before, between, and after our Salmon Run shifts.

    We can talk about our co-workers, weapon choices, strategy, what in the hell is our boss doing with all those eggs, and etc.


    Enjoy and stay safe.

    I'm sure I will visit this thread frequently. b(^.^)
    How do you all like the current/new system of random weapons being loaned out? I really enjoy the Grizzco Blaster! I wonder if it'll be available for purchase in the future. C:

    Have not had a chance to check out the random set up yet. Looking forward to it.

    I dont get it some times though. Mr. Grizz wants those eggs but some of those weapon choices he makes...

    Yeah. That Blaster is kinda crazy! I really hope it's not just some sort of salmonrun exclusive weapon at the end. So Nintendo: Please release it later

    One can always hope! If it does get released, it will probably get nerfed by a lot, as it seems to be quite powerful...

    I reached my highest ever Salmon Run status today, Profreshional 500. :D Hopefully I can up it even more later on today, but now I should really take a break.
    My teammates were absolutely awesome today (my teams only lost a handful of times), so a big Booyah to everyone I played with!

    I played as the Grizzco Blaster...one wave. It's pretty fun, but it doesn't feel balanced at all for the normal multiplayer.

    I'm really enjoying the random weapon rotation in the current Salmon Run. I don't look at my special and go "I get the crap rotation this time!". Sure there's some rolls that mess everyone up, but I think the only real weapons that can't do much of anything are the Dynamo Roller and H-3 Nozzlenose. An all charger rotation can be a nightmare, but that in itself is interesting. I had one where all of us had a Grizzco Blaster. We tore everything up.

    I'm actually not going to try out the Kelp Dome today because I'd rather do this Salmon Run.

    Admittedly I'm having trouble getting past 150 Profreshional. We almost always have a surprise wipe on the third wave.

    GrizzCo needs to stop distributing it's chargers to me. Clearly it doesn't understand my strengths as an employee! :p

    What if Mr. Grizz is an Octoling? Octolings drop power eggs when they die. Also, the GrizzCo Handbook syas that they're used for energy, but the inklings already have the Zapfish. In addition, Mr. Grizz says that the Grizzco Blaster is "One of his favorites", but if it's his favorite, then he's must've used it, and Sheldon doesn't sell it, so he can't be an inkling.

    A minor theory is that Mr. Grizz is more than one person because we says, "Here at Grizzco, WE are trying to make the world a better place." He doesn't say I.

    I hope the random weapon session returns soon since I was out of town for the weekend, missing it. I want more fun with OP versions of weapons!

    Octolings only drop eggs because that makes sense from a gameplay perspective.

    And yeah, it's called GrizzCO., obviously he would be saying that.

    Ink recovery. And I thought reloading in the competitive modes could be intense...

    Today is an easy loadout (Jr/Slosher/Flingza/Squiff), but randoms have been awful today. That Grizzco blaster carried people up to Profresh who aren't ready for it.

    Wiped twice in a row on first round Goldie hunt when they opened all the gushers, and nobody else (especially the roller) would deal with the mooks.

    On one run with all non-event waves, they kept dropping like flies. I died once and rescued them 9 times (one guy died 7 times). We just barely made it, and at the end, there was no booyahing or partying at all...

    Oh I've never had the Grizzco Blaster yet. Sounds sweet though. I actually had a great run last night, where we got 90 eggs one run which is the highest I've gotten.

    Just some of my thoughts: I'm glad people are finally learning about using the stingray for the mothership, although some people don't realise you need to wait for it to start moving before you shoot it. I've found the ink jet it really good for pushing your team past a countdown if you become overwhelmed. And I think the squiffer or charger are my favourite weapons.

    It makes sense from a gameplay pov, in the same way it makes no in-universe sense that Bowser would hide powerups Mario can use in his castle, but yet there they are.

    I like being the charger in Salmon Run, but why does Mr. Grizz always give us scoped chargers on Lost Outpost? He hates his employees. :(

    I for one love one hit splatting those stealheads with the Splat Charger, but I only like the Splat Charger in Salmon Run... every other charger has some sort of flaw that makes me not like them as much (whether it be to low damage and low range with uncharged shots from the Squiffer, or just being tooooo slow to use like the E-Liter 4K).

    I love using chargers in SR! I like all of them, but I think mostly the E-liter 4k without the scope. :)
    You guys! Only 12 minutes left until Grizzco Industries is up and running again! Yeehaaw. :D

    Because there's people who love to play chargers for a living (or: in-game moneys) and are actually super happy to get them handed out in Salmon Run like I do! Yes, even you, scoped E-Liter and Goof-Tuber, even you.

    Y'know, this comp isnt so bad. The inkbrush is something to worry with on high tide griller waves but everythimg else compliments the weapon.

    The Inkbrush is awesome on this map because of all the grates. On Grillers, I'd focus on the smallfry and hope the others are savvy enough to use the wall "trick".

    I dunno whats more satisfying splat bombing a Maws or an one shot steel head kill.

    *slips a note into the suggestion box* "Dear Mr.Grizz stop with the inkbrushes."

    I agree, this would be great for flyfish, yes you can kill it in one missile launch but its hard when you're being bombarded by other salmonoids.

    I like getting the charger on Salmon run. I practice with them, so I'm sure I can contribute. Actually I dislike the loadouts where I don't get the charger. For the past two, it has been the Bomb Rush lineup that didn't have the Chargers.

    The Brushes can be nice in the right circumstances. They are lacking in damage, but they're good for staying alive and fetching eggs.

    The mention of the wall "trick" in Lost Outpost beings up a question. What's the general opinion of it? I see some runs where if someone tries it, everyone else on the team will spam "This way!" until he/she gets off of the wall. I think it makes Glowfly rushes a little less stressful, since you have more time to refill your ink. For Grillers, I prefer to use the step outside of the building.

    The wall trick works if your teammates take the grillers out quickly and make sure to take down the small fry, so you don't get mauled. When everyone does their job, the round is effortless.

    On some loadouts, if 2 different people are targeted, and there may not be enough firepower to take out both. A special may be needed to hurry it up, but it's better used that way than in a panic when things go south.

    I haven't tried the trick on rushes. Being down one on firepower could be a handicap.

    Has anyone ever gone the whole Griller round with the inkbrush and not died at least one time? That set up is my bane.

    I've got to say the first load-out of the game was probably the best. It had the vanilla weapons of each class. Very balanced. I wish we could have loud-outs like that again.
