Back in S Rank, woe is me. But I'll try to stay optimistic. For this venture, I'll stick with my Tri-slosher, and see if I can hold my own on occasion with the bucket.
The battle doesn't start well, as I am easily spotted by two inklings as I try to flank down Hammerhead Bridge, a map I am rather ambivalent towards. I'll just have to be smarter. Apparently that means going straight down the middle.
It helps that I use my Disruptor well, both in throwing it and waiting for the inkling affected to have to recharge. It also helps to know your alternative routes. The only problem is that they really need to be inked first, or aware inklings will see you coming. S-Rank inklings seem to be pretty aware.
I try to make good use of various routes, as well as the ledges and walls. Hammerhead Bridge is a decent map for being highly manoeuvrable, but it also means you have to watch yourself in every direction. I prefer it when I am doing the flanking, of course, particularly to catch a Heavy Splatling and Inkzooka from behind.
I manage that again, this time nullifying the Rainmaker as well as catching a brush in the shield explosion. Good times. That helps us keep our lead, and I manage a decent victory in S-Rank Rainmaker.
