I remember playing with sticks and getting 1-2 kills with the charger. Now I get 10+ kills with motion controls.

Only works with right joy-con What about left-handed people wtf

I started without because I found it difficult, but l noticed that I was falling behind now I use motion controls full time.

Ehm all i have to say is that i never get the impulse to shake that joycon controller, also bravo to anyone who uses the stick controls i don't think i could get used to it again...

I started the first Splatoon with motion controls, and stuck to them for the whole time I’ve been playing the series. It’s personally easier for me to play with motion controls.

People have different opinions on motion controls and not and there's no right or wrong way so stop yelling at each other about using it or not.

I want a pro controller but i spent my money on the switch,splatoon2,octo expansion,skyrim,car charger, and 64 gb
Not good? There’s a good remedy to that. Buy the aerospray.

I mean why does it matter. Most people just play for fun. Play with what feels best for you

0:54. "I don't know why…" Because twin-stick players "aim" horizontally by moving the character instead of actually aiming. This game has so much more verticality than most shooters. On most shooters, you're most of the time aiming horizontally, which can be done with the left stick. About vertical aiming… It is so rare that you usually don't notice it, OR the game has a severe aim-assist on the vertical axis. Splatoon is a shooter with verticality, and that precision is so hard to get with only sticks
David Navarrete (1 month ago)
Btw, I play with split joy cons. It feels more natural, as if I was handing a gun. But I use the grip when I want to use an Inkbrush, because that's the only way to achieve max swing speed with the joy cons

To me motion controls absolutely suck!
It's really just your preference but motion is superior because of how much more accurate you can be and the fact you can make small adjustments to your aim
Jacob Morris-Austin (1 month ago)
No. I used motion controls in Splatoon 1 for SO long and when I tried stick controls, I actually did so much better. I have barely even tried motion controls for splatoon 2.

In handheld NO JUST NO imagine having to move your head just to look around Also when I first started playing the splatoon 2 tutorial I thought my right stick was turned off so I splat-bombed the baloons :X
Move your head? Use the right stick...
Gamerboy360 (1 month ago)
I always turn it off.
i figured out how to use it the first time in splatoon 1 lmao

Very very helpful this video mate I did not know how the right stick worked fully on this game
Hedwyn Hedwyns (2 months ago)
Really old video, but I gotta say. Splatoon 1 & 2 spoiled me, I have severe trouble trying to play a shooter that *doesn't* have motion controls for controllers. (Also, the Joycon Grip works great and is the best way to play imo! No clue what in the world you're doing with your hands here.)
Bullet McBulletFace (2 months ago)
Motion controls, just like in splatoon 1, thats all i need.
Travis Wilson (2 months ago)
I'm really confused. I REFUSE to use joysticks in any game with a reticle, and if it's the only option, I don't buy the game. Am I really in the minority here?
Onzonda (2 months ago)
Very much so yes. I'm rather confused as to why you'd think the majority would be that way....

Motions COntrols 4 splatoon 2? Definitely, unless you playing the game casualty you don't need it. If you are going for competition, you will be handicapping yourself big time, as well have an hard time get past B ranks, I will respect you if you even get to A without using them... but good luck getting any higher than that.
Lee Sumirat (2 months ago)
this guy is promising me that if i spend n hour of my time ill get used to the crapy motion cmotrols wich are halfway developed it seems . I dont get why your videos start on a negative and slowly but surely your back on your knees sucking the japanese dick . Nintendo channels are the worst when it comes to that , no argument there
789Dereck (2 months ago)
I’m sorry but I completely disagree. I’ve tried for hours using the motion controls and it just did not feel good at all. Really it just comes down to personal preference on how you want to play. So to say that there is a best way or anything is really just your preference. I prefer normal controls and I actually do better with them.

Sticks are for pros
There are very few professional stick teams in splatoon 2 competitive

I wonder why they couldn’t get that motion control to turn more?? They sure had it right with Metroid Prime!! What happened?? They devolved with switch motion controls!!

I love the grip. My hands start hurting if I use the joy cons separately and not gonna pay 100€ for a pro controller
Whillusion (2 months ago)
And I like playing on the TV so portable mode isn't possible with that
Brandon Higgins (2 months ago)
Pro controller is definitely the way to go. It's a must buy for the switch.
Tommy Schroeder (2 months ago)
During the beginning of splatoon 1 it was weird at first but I found it alot easier
Snipe M.D (2 months ago)
For me, the opposite is true. Motion controls are more fluid then analog controls, but when I bought Splatoon 2 and tried the Motion Controls, I immediately had buyers remorse, dispite being a fan of the series. I got used to them after a good while, but I always felt like I wasn't playing as good as I knew I could have. I got the Pro Controller shortly after for the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and the motion controls were a bit better, but still not all that great. Then I was exploring the menu and saw that you could turn off the motion controls. I turned them off and at first I had to readjust to traditional controls, but afterwards I never turned motion controls on again. Analog controls aren't fluid like Mouse and Keyboard or Motion controls are, but at least for myself, it felt more natural. When I had to use the motion controls, I really didn't feel like playing Splatoon 2 all that much, but once I learned that I could turn them off, Splatoon 2 became the most replayed game so far in my library.

There are more ways than one to play, and I prefer using the right stick! It feels so good and I'm doing great, too lol

No. Motion is awful
Divvy Glazed (2 months ago)
I've been using the sticks since splatoon 1 and have always been able to hold my own in the S+ ranks. Granted the only weapon I ever use is the splatterscope.

-Nerdy Nadia- (2 months ago)
I started off playing with stick controls back in splatoon 1 because I didn't have the game and my friend started me of playing with her in the battle dojo for us splatoon 1 kids that understand what I'm talking about, and I had to use stick controls because the stupid wii u pro controller didn't have motion controls. But, later when I was over at her house, the sandcastles vs snowman splatfest was going on, and we took turns playing splatfest battles online, and as soon as I started using the motion controls, the entire thing just clicked for me. I now can only use motion controls and look down from my x rank position at the plebs using stick controls.

Ew motion controls are horrible people who make rant videos about using motion controls have been using them for years and that is what they like and what is comfortable for them

i played with the motion controls for the first few days of playing the game, but once I realized you could switch them I did. I like playing the game upside down in my bed so the motion controls are really weird when I do that.

"I don't know why the sticks aren't as precise as motion control" ........... you've played other sticks-shooters right? Most of them have aim assist. Sticks are sh** without aim assist.

Just started motion after 52 levels of stick, and it HAS gotten a bit easier

Good to hear! Honestly if you stick with it it will get so much easier and your aiming will be insanely precise

Here's how I play Splatoon 2: •Wireless Pro controller •Console in tabletop mode •Those longer ranged dulies (whatever they were called) •And motion controls I don't think you should judge people who prefer stick controls though.
No. It’s not.
aaron stelmach (4 months ago)
Motion controls are better because of the small thumb sticks on the joycons, there’s little no to travel when you move them it’s harder to adjust
Mk320 (4 months ago)
Honestly... I don't use motion controls only because I just don't like to move my arms so much when playing games, I am already so used to playing without them, and I always do very well without motion controls. I don't like when people tell me I'm retarded just because I don't use motion controls. Everyone has a preference.
Tracer Bullet (3 months ago)
Sorry that tons of people insult players who use sticks. This is coming from someone with hundreds of hours in the game and who's never used anything but motion controls. If you're that used to playing sticks, that's up to you. That said, if you're aiming to be the best of the best then motion controls are the only way to go. If you check out ThatSRB2Dude's video about it he does a pretty good job explaining the key differences
Dr. Sci-Fi (4 months ago)
I personally perform best with the joycon grip so I encourage new and returnjng players to play a couple rounds with all comtroller types.

I can use the joy-con grip but my hands are quite small
nextlastgengamer (5 months ago)
I must be in the minority. I like playing with dual sticks and no motion. I usually score the best out of my team, or at worst second place. I've tried both play styles, and I found the motion controls super inaccurate. I died far more often with the motion controls, mainly because I felt like I couldn't defend myself. I could paint just fine, but I couldn't get an accurate aim on anyone, was constantly dying, and therefore scored badly. As far as controllers go, I use the joycons attached to the system for handheld, and use the pro controller when docked. I actually prefer motion controls on the first game, but on the second one they improved the analog controls to the point where they are actually quite good.

The best way to play Splatoon 2 is turn off the motion controls😃
justin van (5 months ago)
I really don't like motion controls, i would rather just not play the game all together. The joysticks are very small which makes shooters difficult to be precise. I found it much, much easier to use the joy cons in the controller add-on thingy (hunk of plastic) than have it portable style with the joy con's on the side game boy style.
Fissure (5 months ago)
I went from B to A by using motion for an hour.
ViewtifulTV (5 months ago)
Solid opinion/perspective man. Shot you a sub my boi :)
ViewtifulTV (5 months ago)
PS, I'm currently trying to get used to that joycon style. It's tough but I think over time and with the right weapons it will improve.

If someone wants to use sticks, let them. If they want to use motion controls, let them. I don't understand why there is always a slight argument over which control is better. It's up to the person playing the game.
James Healey (5 months ago)
My preference is the Pro Controller with motion controls and the sensitivity of everything maxed out. I don't like the split Joy-Con. In fact, I prefer the Joy-Con in a grip much closer to the Pro Controller than the split Joy-Con because turning with only my right hand is hard and hurts my wrist, and for me, it's difficult to use them right control stick while I'm turning my right hand. Turning the Pro Controller or Joy-Con grip with both hands is easier and more comfortable and I'm more able to use the right control stick to aim at the same time. Handheld mode is probably last for me, because I don't like moving the screen while aiming. I rather play in tabletop mode than in handheld if I can help it.
Hayds 126 (5 months ago)
I really need to get myself a pro controller. Too bad it’s so expensive I just settle with joy-con grip for now. My hands aren’t super huge so it doesn’t feel that bad.
GalacCee (5 months ago)
well, yeah
No pro controller is da best!!
