Splatoon 2 5.0.1 update

Multiplayer Changes

The main meat of this update can be found in its mutliplayer changes and fixes. Nothing too drastic has been altered, but the fixes that have been made should make for a better experience overall. This includes several fixes for different stages.

In Shellendorf Institute, for example, you should no longer clip into the stage terrain while moving towards and near a particular wall. On the same stage, you shouldn’t be able to clip into a specific piece of terrain while playing on Rainmaker mode.

The Ultra Stamp has been improved, too. You shouldn’t be able to jump further than you wanted to while using the Ultra Stamp, for example. Nor should you accidentally move forward during the first swing of an Ultra Stamp while holding ZR in order to swing the stamp. Thanks to these fixes, you should no longer be able to access areas of stages that should be out-of-bounds when using Ultra Stamp.
