How To Get All Splatoon 3 Amiibo Unlocks?

In this guide, we will go over all the amiibo available for Splatoon 3 and what each one unlocks. We'll also cover how to scan for amiibos.

Splatoon 3 has a fun way of expanding your character’s exclusive wardrobe and appearance using amiibo figurines. Amiibo are collectible figures by Nintendo with special features in compatible games. You can get these figures from Amazon or Nintendo’s official website.

Once you have the amiibo, you can scan it at the Amiibo Booth in Splatsville. This unlocks a special gear set themed after the character on the amiibo. These gear sets come in multiple pieces, and you’ll need to participate in some Turf War matches to unlock them all. Winning battles progressively grants you access to the shoes, top, and headgear, allowing you to complete the entire outfit.

This guide will provide a comprehensive list of all the Splatoon 3 amiibo and the gear sets they unlock.

How to scan Amiibos?

You need to use your amiibo to unlock rewards, which is straightforward. Head to the Amiibo booth in Splatsville, the game’s central hub. There, you can interact with the amiibo reader and scan your figurine. The first scan might not unlock everything immediately; you must win some Turf games in between scans. The first scan will likely yield the shoes of the amiibo.

Once you have the shoes, you must win 20 battles to unlock the next armor set piece. After a few victories, you’ll receive each piece of the gear set sequentially, allowing you to progressively build your amiibo-themed look. Let’s look at all the rewards your amiibo’s will give you.
