Splatoon 2’s latest update includes changes to Salmon Run and Stingray weapon

Nintendo has released a substantial new update for Splatoon 2, an update that includes changes to the Salmon Run co-op mode, Splatfest, and more.

According to the full notes for the update (which you can read here), a number of Salmon Run-specific bugs and other issues have been fixed. The Stingray weapon has also been noticeably buffed, making it a more viable choice in both Salmon Run and competitive multiplayer. As for Splatfests, the amount of XP required to fill in slots on Splatfest Tees has been adjusted.

The update (which brings Splatoon 2 up to version 1.3.0) is live now and should be downloaded automatically the next time you boot the game up.
