Splatoon 2 Map Size Guide

There are currently 16 stages (maps) in the Splatoon 2 rotation. Ever wonder which maps have the most inkable turf? Here I will list them from largest to smallest, along with their approximate size. Personally, I love larger maps that have lots of ground to cover, while small maps seem more likely to end up with one team spawn camping the other. This chart will be updated each time another map is added to the rotation (via DLC).

Inkblot Art Academy is the largest, followed by Port Mackerel. The smallest is Walleye Warehouse, followed by Blackbelly Skatepark. Since the shape and size of Shifty Station changes for each Splatfest, it is not included in the main chart. See below for more information.

About the Figures

After each Turf War battle, the game displays the area covered by each team, along with the percentage of the total. With just a little math, you can figure out the total amount of inkable turf on each stage. While the results may vary a bit each time due to rounding, I tried to minimize the effect by taking at least ten results for each map and averaging them out. These results aren't official and may not be exact, but they shouldn't be off by more than a few p. In other words, they are certainly more than adequate to compare the sizes of one map to another.

Note: Trees do not count as inkable turf, as of Version 1.2.0 (source)

Shifty Station

As mentioned above, Shifty Station has a different size and layout for each Splatfest. So I didn't include it in the chart above, but I will still list each version here and the approximate size. Note: This list is based on the maps that have appeared in America. Splatfests for other regions may have used these maps in a different order.
