For the want of one egg in Salmon Run [20-15-12, 12/646]

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Argh, the Nozzlenose! Well, I suppose firing it is much like the Tri-slosher, otherwise is a shooter-cum-Squiffer. Maybe Mr Grizz will be the one who makes me appreciate it. Or maybe not, with the skies darkening in the first wave in the Lost Outpost, which I'm barely familiar with. And ...

Just about surviving the Salmon Run [21-13-20, 14/541]

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

There's little drama for the first half of this Salmon Run. A Stinger is an easy start, and the Scrapper and Maws aren't too troublesome, even if a couple of inklings succumb to the salmonids. Naturally, it's the Flyfish that starts causing trouble, as we still try to deal with ...

Almost not a bumper load in Salmon Run [30-27-21, 20/497]

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

Four shooters as weapons is an interesting choice by Mr Grizz, but should at least make most inklings comfortable for each wave. Having said that, starting with the .96 Gal is perhaps my last choice of the four, although the terribly short range of the Sploosh-o-matic makes some bosses awkward. ...

Getting desperate in Salmon [17-23-19, 15/605]

Sunday, December 24th, 2017

I can work with the Aerospray MG. It's got a good fire rate and has good mobility, so I should be happy with the first wave. The first couple of bosses are straightforward, with even the Drizzler taken down without much fuss. Our efficiency continues, but I'm finally overwhelmed by ...

The tide is out in Salmon Run [22-22-22, 14/558]

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Yes! Tri-slosher to start! And low tide, which generally simplifies a Salmon Run. The bosses can only come along one of three strands, with the only drawback being that you can get isolated when down one of the strands. Even that is mitigated somewhat in Marooner's Bay, compared to Spawning ...

Increasing eggs in Salmon Run [15-23-34, 16/506]

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

The sky darkens as the wave is about to start. What are we getting: glowflies, Grillers, or a Mothership? I hope it's glowflies, which are relentless but simpler than the other two options. Of course, it's Grillers. Not much of relaxing start. But at least the first comes for me, ...

More eggs than we can handle in Salmon Run [14-24-17, 11/656]

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

More Salmon Run! I get to use the .52 Gal today. It's not really been a weapon I've used much, and I'm assuming it's your basic shooter. It pretty much easier, and just a bit slower than I'm used to or would choose. It certainly deals with the Stingers easily ...

Huge tally in Salmon Run (24-26-29, 20/606)

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Low tide and the Carbon Roller is a good start to a Salmon Run for me. The vertical flick helps feel helpful against Steel Head too. I nearly get bumped in to the water, but just about keep my footing. We splat boss after boss, and I even throw a ...

Top-notch Salmon Run [17-19-22, 22/446]

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Glowflies! And they're on me! Cool. Line 'em up, squidmates! I only move away from the basket when the glowflies have moved off me, which lets me grab a couple of golden eggs. The next time I drop down to try to save a squidmate, who turns the corner as ...

Off by one in Salmon Run [17-15-13, 11/424]

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Oh yes. Look at the weapons today. The Tri-slosher and Carbon Roller are both main weapons of mine, I pull out variants of the Splat Charger regularly, and the Splash-o-matic was my first love. Nothing can go wrong in today's Salmon Run! I'm even handed the Tri-slosher for the first ...
