Some Splatoon 3 players keep spamming each other

A Japanese Twitter user (via Siliconera) drew attention to some of the cheating in Splatoon 3, and even popularized the term チーター (“cheater”) on the social network. The question revolves around a small group of players who have been consistently firing off specials without having to wait for their special weapon meter to fill up. It’s unclear if this was caused by an unpatched bug or some form of hacking, but the problem seems to be mostly related to Tetra Missiles and Reef Slider specials. That prompted Japanese Twitter users to call on Nintendo to fix the problem.
