Welcome to another section of Nintendo News Fix’s Splatoon walkthrough. This guide we will take you through all the Sunken Scrolls locations hidden throughout Splatoon’s single player campaign.
The Sunken Scrolls are a collectible item scattered across the ink filled obstacles of the single player mode of Splatoon. In each level, there is one sunken scrolls to discover. So in total you will need to collect a mighty 32 Sunken Scrolls. While some Sunken Scrolls are easy to find, there is a handful that are well hidden and therefore easily missed.
The Sunken Scrolls reveal interesting tidbits about the history of the Splatoon universe. So if you are curious about the world that Nintendo has created then I would suggest collecting as many, if not all the scrolls.
To help you in your quest, I have created this quite detail guide on all the Sunken scroll locations.
Level 1 – Sunken Scroll #1
Around midway through the level – on the skyscaper rooftoop with three cement pillar – the 1st Sunken can be located. Paint a trail of ink alongside the wall of the tallest pillar. Once done, swim up the ink trail to find a breakable crate, shoot the wooden crate to reveal the 1st Sunken Scroll.
Level 2 – Sunken Scroll #2
On the large skyscraper where you first encounter the Suckerfish is where the second Sunken Scroll can be found. On the second floor, you will notice that there is a hidden area beneath the mesh-wired path. Turn into a squid to seep through to the hidden area. Shoot the crate to reveal the Sunken Scroll #2.
Level 3 – Sunken Scroll #3
The 3rd Sunken Scroll can be found on the section with two metal pillars. You will need to create a paint wall alongside the tallest Pillar (the pillar that is not stacked) in order to swim to the top. Once at the top, face the second second pillar. Paint the wall face, and use the squid jump to reach the 3rd Sunken Scroll inside the Wooden crate.
Boss Battle #1 – Sunken Scroll # 4
After defeating the Octostomp Boss, the Sunken scroll will appear around the Zapfish. You shouldn’t miss this one.
Level 4- Sunken Scroll #5

Level 5 – Sunken Scroll# 6
Sunken Scroll #6 can be found in the section with the expendable sponge and two octopus grunts (as shown in the image above). Jump on the Sponge and lure the octopus to fire on the sponge. After a couple of shots, the sponge should retract revealing a hidden area beneath. Turn into a squid to seep through the rope net to access the 6th Sunken Scroll.
Level 6 – Sunken Scroll #7
Sunken Scroll#7 is located underneath the elevator propelled by a fan. Stand outside the elevator platform and throw an ink grenade near the fan. Once it explodes, the elevator will move up revealing a hidden area below. Fall underneath and shoot the crate to unearth Sunken Scroll #7.
