If you've been enjoying Splatoon 3 and wondering why your guns suddenly stop working, you're not alone. Currently, a major Splatoon 3 bug is preventing players from firing their guns for multiple games at a time, which is definitely not good. You'd think a Splatoon 3 bug that prevents players from playing properly for several games would've been caught before the game was officially released, but somehow it wasn't. Let's talk about it, shall we?
What should I know about this Splatoon 3 bug?
There are users on Twitter that have video proof of their guns not firing in-game, which is definitely a pretty bizarre Splatoon 3 bug, all things considered. Players have also reset their Nintendo Switches, which is a fairly drastic attempt at a solution, and this still hasn't fixed the issue. This appears to be a problem stemming entirely from Nintendo's side of things, so let's hope that this particular bug is fixed relatively soon.
"This particular bug?", you may ask with a hint of fear. Yes, there are multiple Splatoon 3 bugs that may ruin your day. One of them is a Mudmouth bug in Salmon Run, which means that unless players throw a bomb in its mouth, they're unable to progress to the next level at the moment, which is also definitely not good.
The Splatoon series is no stranger to controversy, but hopefully this time around Nintendo nips this issue in the bud. At least one of these bugs should be easily fixable, right? We'll have to see.
Splatoon 3 sales are through the roof
On the bright side, at least for Nintendo, Splatoon 3 has sold a ton of copies. Domestically, it has sold 3.45 million units in its first 3 days, which is higher than any other domestic Nintendo Switch software during that time period. This is reflected outside of Japan in the UK as well, with the series scoring its first ever UK No. 1 on the UK boxed charts. Interestingly, sales are down 9% compared to Splatoon 2's sales, but this is also only for physical sales, so there's a good chance Splatoon 3 sold more in the UK when combining physical and digital sales.
