Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Explained

In Salmon Run, objectives come in the form of collecting and depositing Power Eggs and Golden Eggs, which can be obtained from defeating enemies. Salmon Run unlocks once players reach level four, meaning that you'll have to put in some work playing multiplayer or other game modes before you can tackle waves of Salmonids with friends.

One of the best parts of Salmon Run is the rewards. Players can earn rewards by completing various waves, defeating a certain amount of enemies, and by completing challenges. Fans of Splatoon need to check out this game mode once they unlock it.
