Personalizing Lockers

In this highly competitive game, perhaps lockers are one of the most comforting and unique belongings of a player. Players are able to place and customize their lockers as per they require. The lockers are entirely unique to the player and allow creative players to go crazy with their imaginations and design them the way that they want. 

Not only are they able to decorate the inside with insane amounts of decorations, shirts, skateboards, and other small it-bits, but they are also able to decorate and customize the outside as well. Typically, players will be allowed to use different stickers that can add personalization to the player!

Apart from stickers, pieces of furniture, as well as items like shirts, can also be hung in the locker to showcase your wardrobe to other players that are browsing for inspiration or simply viewing other players’ lockers. 

Unlocking and Upgrading

Moving on, let’s take on the topic of actually unlocking and accessing your very own locker. Before players can even think of planning out their locker and filling it with the items of their dreams, they will need to gain access to it first. 

Players in Splatoon 3 will be able to get access to the locker for the first time whenever they get to level 4 in-game. While it’s not the easiest to level up in the game, once players manage to get to it and get their locker, all the hard work evidently pays off. 

Level 4 will be the level that you’ll actually need to reach in multiplayer mode, and in order to do that, you’ll need to order different battles in which you will need to take opponents head-on and achieve as many victories as possible in order actually to level up faster. 

If you don’t really fancy taking part in fights, then the best thing that you can do to upgrade is to use tickers that will essentially grant you a certain amount of EXP that can come in handy to help you level up.

How To Get EXP Tickets 

The best way to get your hands on some EXP tickets will be to enter, experiment, and try out the different game modes that the game has to offer for you. One of the main methods will be that of the Alterna Hub, or the Salmon Run game mode which will allow you to take on enemies in a PvE-type game mode and allows for a more comfortable gameplay experience in general. 


Now that you have actually managed to make use of the EXP tickets and leveled up to 4 make your way back to the main lobby. There will be a specific Splatoon 3 locker room for players that will contain tons of different lockers, all of the different colors, shapes, and sizes. 

From here on out, you will need to reach level 15 if you actually want further to increase the overall height and size of your locker, so while you can’t do that, start customizing it, which we will talk more about further!

Using Controls 

The next thing that you might want to consider is how the actual customization will occur, or rather, what the process might be like. There are going to be various controls that you will need to access on your controller in order to decorate and open up your locker to access it properly. 

In order to actually interact with your locker, you will need to click on the A button on the controller, which will allow you to further access controls like customization of it further. 

To enter the actual editing mode for your locker, you will need to click on the + icon, after which you will have the ability to then further click on ZR, which will grant you the ability to decorate the inside of the locker as well as the outside too. 

To further access the menu, you will need to click on the X button, after which you will be granted access to further select any kind of items that you want to and head into your folders with the R and L buttons. 

To click on any item, you can click on A, which will allow you to move the items then further inside, place them or remove them from shelves, or move them to the top shelf with the help of the Left Joystick. 

If you want to remove the items and put them away, you can click on the Y button on your controller, while pressing down on the L button will allow you to tilt the items clockwise, while the R button will be responsible for tilting it anti-clockwise. 

With these controls, you’ll be able to gain full access to your own locker, and you can add and change the placements of the items to your liking.

Getting Decorations

Getting Decorations

Now, if you want to get unlimited decorations and want to deck out your locker properly, then the best way will be to know where and how to buy farm decorations exactly. Let’s check out a couple of ways that you can do so! 

Shellout Gacha Machine 

The first way that you can get a few decorations will be through the machine that will be located just outside your locker room. Once you head out of the locker room, take a right turn, and you will be able to interact with it. For a total of 5500 coins, you’ll be able to get a discounted first play, while the next play will use up a total of 30000 coins in exchange for decorations. 

Hero Mode 

The next way that you can get decorations to deck out your locker will be the Hero Mode which is considered to be an excellent single-player mode. Use your Salmonid against the small ooze that will be scattered all across the Alterna. In exchange for clearing a small area, you’ll be able to get decorations.

Harmony’s Store 

Another way that you can get customizable items will be by simply visiting Harmony, who will have her very own store now. She will be able to use a small number of coins from your end and will give items like shirts, stickers, posters, footballs, and several other items that you can put both inside and outside of your locker. 

Harmony’s Catalog 

There will also be a catalog that will consequently give out items. These will be given out to the players once after renewing up after a few months. One thing that you need to ensure is that you shouldn’t miss out on the resets if you want the items. 

Locker Inspirations

Moving on, we’d like to talk about a few solid locker examples that might give you the small push that you might need to actually want to level up faster and aim to unlock lockers and decorate them.

Sticker Galore

The first option that we would like to show you will be focused on decorating the outside more than the inside so that players are able to see your sticker collections in explicit detail. On the outside of the locker, the color itself will be a teal-green color. 

Apart from that, the stickers will range from a collection of an animal sticker, a sticker of a crane, a fragile post sticker, and another fragile sticker but in a different language. With that, there will be two different types of sign plates, which are placed at the top of the locker. On the bottom, there will be an arrow poster and a small (animal?) sticker. 

When you open up the locker, you’re met with a full locker. While the locker isn’t really all that organized, it still provides a unique outlook, with it containing a pink plushie, several different crates, a teal polaroid camera, more boxes on top, as well as another camera placed right on top.

Pink-Themed Locker

The next locker that we would like to feature will be an adorable pink-themed locker. There will be tons of pink pops of color, with the actual locker being baby pink as well. The main defining feature of the locker has to be the stickers that are placed on top of it. One of them is a hot pink and baby blue jellyfish sticker. 

Apart from that, there is a mirrored 593 sticker that is placed towards the center, and the sticker itself is purple and also has a lime-green outline. Right on top of it, there is yet another funky hot pink and blue colored sticker, and on top of that, there is going to be a holographic circular sticker and another 593 to the left of it, but this time the number will be colored gold, and it will have a purple outline to it. 

If you open the locker, you’re met with an even more adorable interior, as it will have a neatly organized wardrobe. Two grey shirts, one mug, one cellphone, multiple books, a beanie, toad shoes, and some snacks adorn the locker beautifully. 

Grey-Themed Locker 

Another locker that we would like to feature will be one that will be fully colored grey. It is essentially going to be one of the neatest lockers that players in Splatoon 3 can go for, and there is little to no clutter, neither on the outside nor inside. 

On the outside of the locker, right on the bottom, there will be an angry-bird-inspired sticker, and when you move up, there will be a poster that will be placed that will be colored black, and it will have an orange triangular design it with some text on it. On top of it, there will be a small grey squid with its brain exposed. 

When you open the locker, you’ll be able to encounter one main shelf that will be placed about 2/3rds toward the top of the locker. On top of the shelf, there will be a black hat, while on the left, there will be two books, and on top of that, there will be a tin can. 

On the bottom area, there will be a green t-shirt neatly hung, a keychain of the same grey squid, a skateboard, and some shoes. You might find our Splatoon 3 How To Make Art guide extremely useful!

Comic Book Galore

Now, the next locker that we’ll feature really isn’t all that special on the outside. While the locker itself is a grey-colored sleek design, there is only one sticker placed in the middle of it, and it is just eyes and nothing else. At first glance, the locker will seem extremely bland, but you just wait once you open it. 

The first time that you open it, you’ll be met with an entire collection of comic books, several video games, as well as other items. There will be a total of 4 shelves that will neatly divide the internal locker into five equal sections, and there will be two stacked boxes and one vertical box placed at the bottom of the locker. 

With that, the shelf right on top of it will have a front-facing cover that will have a bus on it and a few books that will be toppling over. On top of that, there will be even more, either books or games, with several pink-colored items on them. The top of the shelf will have smaller books to top it all off. 

Figurine Themed Locker

If you’re someone who would rather have a locker that will represent your love for figurines and collectibles, then this might be the one for you. The main locker will be decked out in a sort of red-pink color. 

On the outside of it, there will be quite a few stickers that you can check out. On the top of the locker, there will be a yellow smiley-face sticker, while there will be a sticker of a person running and a green and yellow star with eyes too.

Right below that, there will be a yellow squid, a hot pink and teal sticker, another squid but in dark blue,  a pink squid and a yellow and red star hiding behind it, a rectangular animal sticker, and a red and pink sticker at the very bottom. 

When you reveal the inside of the locker, you’ll be greeted with a very interesting collection of dolls. The shelf is once again divided into five main compartments for easy storage, and at the bottom, there are three figurines.

When you get to the shelf above it, there will be three identical figurines, except for the fact that one will be colored white; one is going to be baby blue, while the other will be a gradient of yellow, red, and purple. 

There are going to be even more figures on top of it. One of them will be open, while the other will be closed in a box safely. The top two shelves will have three random figurines, while the top shelf will have two complementing red and yellow figures. 

Fisherman’s Dream Locker

The next locker seems extremely fishy (sorry, we had to) the first glance. On the outside of the locker, there will be a fish sticker that will be colored grey, while the locker itself will be colored grey too. 

Upon opening the locker, it will reveal an even higher number of fish present. There will be a baby-blue colored crate, and there will be two greys, dark blue, and blackfish, one facing the player, while the other will be facing towards the wall of the locker. 

To the side of the locker, there will be a fishing rod, and the base of the fishing rod will be colored red, with an off-white colored fishing line. The locker will be divided by a shelf that will be on the top half, and towards the left of the locker, there will be a small blue bucket with a handle to the side, and there will be two fish facing away from each other placed in the bucket. 

Towards the right of the shelf, there will be a white cooler, and on top of it, there will be a container with presumable food with a gold lid. 

To say the least, there are tons more options that players can go for when they want to decorate the interior and exterior of their locker, and it can be decorated with a proper theme or jam-pack the locker with random items. With that, we will wrap up our Splatoon 3 Locker Room guide! While you’re at it, why not skim through our Splatoon 3 How To Join Turf War guide?
