Hammerhead Bridge (Japanese: マサバ海峡大橋, Masaba Kaikyou Oohashi / Chub Mackerel Strait Bridge) is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon.


Hammerhead Bridge appears to be a narrow but long stage. It appears to have an upper path, which is made up of several platforms connected by mesh bridges, and a lower path, which seems to be wider than the upper path, as well as lacking in mesh bridges. Weapons that excel at fighting on uneven ground, such as the Tri-Slosher and Dynamo Roller, will likely do well here.
