Splatoon 3: How to Get Banners

Splatoon 3 banners are a new way to express yourself in the multiplayer shooter. Here's how to get them

Splatoon 3 banners are a new way you can customize your character in Nintendo’s inky take on the shooter genre. Like much else in the game, though, getting new banners in Splatoon 3 seems like a vague

How to Get Banners in Splatoon 3

So far, we’ve discovered four ways to earn banners in Splatoon 3.

Catalogue Banners

A surefire way of getting new banners involves the Hotlantis store. Once you hit certain catalogue level milestones, Harmony rewards you with new banners. You can increase your catalogue level just by playing the game. You earn catalogue points in Turf War and other modes, even if you lose the match.

The Catalogue banner milestones are at levels:

  • 2
  • 13
  • 26
  • 37
  • 44
  • 64
  • 78

Shell-Out Machine Banners

You may get a random banner by spending some coins at the Shell-Out Machine in the lobby, near the doors leading to the locker room. The chance of winning a banner seems random, and we haven’t been able to determine a specific chance of winning any item, let alone banners.

You may end up with a new title, locker decorations, or even a ticket to use at the restaurant, so don’t hesitate to spend your coins here at least once a day.

Salmon Run Banners

Another guaranteed method of earning new banners comes from playing Salmon Run at Grizzco, though obtaining the currency you exchange for banners comes with its own set of trials. You use Fish Scales, which only drop from the King Salmonid enemy that may appear in the fourth wave.

The chance of a King Salmonid appearing in Salmon Run is comparatively small, so it may take several tries.

You can get 10 banners from Grizzco’s for exchanging bronze or golden scales.

Tableturf Banners

Playing Tableturf, Splatoon 3’s tabletop card game, also rewards you with some banners at certain milestones. These are:

  • Level 10
  • Level 25
  • Level 46
