How the team works Splatoon 3
The whole team has a Main skill slot and up to three subgrooves. The highest star power a piece of equipment has, the more subslots it has. Each star the team has after their second star will increase the amount of XP you get.
You can play games turf war either battle of anarchy to gain XP on your team, and doing so grants you new random abilities (if you have space) or Ability Chunks. You can use Ability Chunks to select which specific abilities you want to put on your team to avoid the random element.
Depending on the brand of equipment, specific abilities will appear more often and others will appear less frequently. We present them below.

How to upgrade equipment and use Ability Chunks
Murch the sea urchin sitting just outside the lobby offers a variety of important services. It will remove all sub-skills from your gear and give you one skill chunk per skill for 20,000 gold. If you give her super sea snailsyou can also increase your team’s star power or completely change their skill subslots.
Notably, you can also use Ability Chunks to set specific abilities on your team. It costs 45 Ability Chunks to set up the primary ability and 10 Ability Chunks to set up the first secondary ability on a piece of gear. However, if you want to place multiple instances of the same skill on one piece of gear, the cost of the skill chunk will increase to 20 for two of the same skill and 30 for three. (For example, if you wanted three swim speed up abilities in my shoes, it would cost me a total of 60 Swim Speed Up Ability Chunks).
You can also increase your star power if you buy duplicates of the same gear from regular stores. However, this gets expensive as each upgrade will cost more money. You can also reset skills on gear by swapping yours for the one from the shop, but you won’t get any skill shards from this.
How to farm skill shards quickly
There are two great ways to farm Ability Chunks: salmon run other splashes.
Using Salmon Run to farm chunks
Salmon Run will repeatedly reward you with random reward capsules and a specific piece of gear. (At the time of this writing, the gear in question is the Bream-Brim cap.) You can only have one copy of the team, so the other one will be discarded and you will get Ability Chunks for the abilities. Simply spamming Salmon Run and sharding your team is an easy way to rack up skill shards quickly.
Salmon Run’s bonus meter resets every 40 hours, so you’ll need to earn around 1,200 points before you start receiving only gear as a reward every time it resets.
Using Splatfests to farm chunks
the splashed tea (which you can get a week before any Splatfest) has three secondary slots and scrubbing only costs 2000 gold. Playing normal matches with the Splatfest t-shirt equipped is cheap and quick Ability Chunks.
To take it one step further, if you have a skill drink for a skill you want chunks for, use it. (You can get skill drinks from hulling machine random.)
If you use a skill drink, your team will roll that skill at a higher rate. Players using this strategy recommend cleaning his Splatfest shirt after he gets his first ability to minimize the use of the drink, since it’s only active for 20 matches.
What skills are the best in Splatoon 3?
There’s a pattern to which abilities people use the most, like Swim Speed Up and Ink Saver, but the exact abilities you put on your team depends on your playstyle and weapon choice.
If you love running around and throwing bombs, it would probably be worth putting your team on Swim Speed Up, Ink Saver (Sub), and Ink Recovery Up. If you love shooting your Tenta Missiles, maybe Special Power Up is your sub-ability of choice.
