Enjoying the Specials in Salmon Run [22-20-17, 21/554]

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

I think going the long way to the Steelhead will be quicker. It isn't, but I manage to nab a Golden Egg like I deserved it. The Drizzler is easier, and the second Steelhead takes priority over the Steel Eel, but I overlook a Cohock, and get a pan to ...

What difficult third wave, in Salmon Run [16-14-21, 12/510]

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Bah, that's a poor throw on the Flyfish, particularly as my aiming arc showed the Splat Bomb would fall short. Still, it's the first boss in the first wave, we will cope. Then again, the Flyfish is splatted anyway, and I honestly don't know how. All bombs fell out of ...

Profreshional Salmon Run [26-20-26, 19/569]

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Low tide seems like an easy start to this Salmon Run, and our squidmate teasing Maws back to the basket makes it easier. A lone Flyfish is only awkward because of the salmonids in front of it, and my first throw just misses. Our second attempt shows that Flyfish who's ...

Lone survivor in Salmon Run [21-26-19, 15/322]

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Nice first bomb at the Flyfish, whilst wading through green muck! There's not that much pressure on, though, and we're waiting for the bosses to appear. I bet I'll miss this time by the middle of the third wave. The Steel Eels are nice and easy to take care of ...

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, ...
