Hello and welcome to another Dragonball fighterZ Tips &Trick. Today we have a character profile for Frieza. Our galactic Overlord made it into Dragon ball fighterZ in his final form. With the possibility of upgrading himself, into Golden Frieza to dish out even more damage. With a very unique moveset Frieza despite being a beginner friendly character. He’s gonna take some practice if you want to use his full array of abilities. And let’s start by highlighting some very unique normals.
By pressing down on the special button Frieza throws laser eyes.
Now, this move isn’t very useful in most situations since it’s got the same priority as a normal key blast. So it’s not gonna stop a super dash or anything like that. And the range is super short and it doesn’t deal too much damage. So I guess it’s only God it’s situational uses but it looks cool. Come on its laser eyes.
Next, by jumping and spamming the special button, Frieza will throw out these hand blasts.
This is a close to medium range ability. It can only be used in the air. Its use is a bit situational. But it does dash out a bit more damage than the laser eyes.
Next, most characters will knock an opponent into a wall bounce when you hit to have your attack button while standing. However, when you do that with Frieza, he throws these telekinetic rocks.
They too causal wall bounce but only if you are at close range. The rocks need to raise the opponent from the ground first.
But if you hit an opponent with a distance disability will still deal damage. It won’t cause a wall bounce. But it does give Frieza and needs one ability that is absolutely free.
Also hit down + to heavy attack button causes a ground explosion.
Which is definitely an anti-air move great for countering any reckless super dash. And that completes the weirdness of his normals.
As you can see, a lot of them have a bigger range than most characters making Frieza kind of as the owner. Who can also make stuff happen at close range?
Especially since most of his attacks that we covered so far are particularly useful in the mid-range section not really the long range.
But that starts to change when we arrive at his special move. Starting with next time you’ll die.
With quarter-circle forward and a special button. This is a giant projectile that travels forward Frieza can do this wall on the ground or in the air. But if you do it in the air the projectile will travel towards the ground first it won’t just go horizontally.
If you hit an opponent at long range it just deals some damage. But if you actually catch at close range with the disability you’ll deal even more damage. There’s an awesome ability to finish combos and you can even link it easily into any super.
Creases second special is the death saucer with particle backward and a special button.
Frieza throws two saucers at the opponent and these saucers comeback. And they will actually hit Frieza if he’s not careful. I’ve heard some people saying that these are unblockable but that’s totally just not true.
You can block them easily you just have to point to the opposite direction once they come back. And even Frieza can block them or just knock so they go over him.
And it’s cool that he made it into the game. It does add something because after you throw these discs out. You know they’re coming back and you need to be careful.
Frieza can also teleport completely for free with warp smash done with down down and the special button. Now that’s a button combination we don’t see often in this game.
Frieza will vanish then jumped and throw a fireball at the opponents. If he’s somewhat close to the opponent it’ll actually switch sides. But if not he’ll just get a little bit closer. It seems that the distance he teleports is fixed and it doesn’t really track how far the enemy is. Unlike the universal teleport that every character can do with one bar of meter.
The last special attack from Frieza is the earth breaker with quarter-circle forward than an attack button.
This is sort of a ground projectile. Frieza will spawn this a close to medium range with a light attack button or at long range with a medium attack button. And then we have the heavy attack version that seems to trigger both of the previous version. So it basically covers the whole screen this is also Frieza assist attack.
Which can totally be used as a launcher if you want to follow it up with a combo? And as far as supers go Frieza has a single level one super and a bunch of level threes. There are quite situational and unique.
So let’s start simple with the death ball with quarter-circle forward and the right bumper or trigger.
This is Frieza level 1, he jumps in the air and throws the death bolt diagonally downwards. If you’re already in the air while Frieza doesn’t jump obviously but yeah you can do this wall on the ground or the air.
This is great for finishing most of his combos since Frieza can just do this from any position. Same goes for his level 3 the Nova strike with quarter-circle backward and the right bumper. You can also do this wall on the ground or on the air.
But if you’re on the ground Frieza will first jump because this is also a diagonal attack. You can see Frieza powering up to his 100% full power form and then just diving towards.
Now the range of disability ends up being a bit shorter than Frieza’s death ball. Since it doesn’t trigger an explosion when Frieza a lens. So make sure you’re close enough to your opponents before you spend the three bars.
This also has a very situational level three called you should be killed by me. By simply holding down the right trigger when Frieza is down. And this has to be a hard knockdown Frieza has to be saying on the ground when you hold the right trigger.
Then Freeza will shoot a beam diagonally upwards. This is a very unique attack from Frieza. That makes him extremely dangerous when he’s knocked down with three bars a meter.
Because this attack actually deals some decent damage. So if you’re fighting against Frieza, my advice is if he’s got three bars just stay away. Though sometimes that could work in freezes favor because the ball is zoning abilities that we talked about.
Finally, Frieza has a transformation.
You can turn into golden Frieza with quarter-circle backward and the right trigger. And let’s look at what this transformation does first of all movement speed.
Frieza gets a lot faster when turned to golden. And that’s useful for both getting close and getting far away from an opponent. If you’re fighting against someone who is wicked zoning you might want to put it some distance. If not you might actually want to get close to the shot some damage because the transformation is actually temporary.
Now all of his attacks will retain the same speed the only thing that changes is how fast he moves. And as far as damage we also have a little buff for instance. If we look at his level one super the golden version will deal around three percent more damage than the normal version. Which might not be a lot since you just spent three bars a meter to power up.
But sometimes three percent will be just enough. now when the transformation runs out razor will be vulnerable for a good second or two. But if you hold down a button specifically when this is happening. You’ll spend one bar of meter to call in sorbet. And survey will shoot an opponent from off-screen which is a reference to the resurrection F movie.
Well, let’s move on to the auto combos as far as auto combo one.
This is what happens when you match the light attack button and be aware of freezes third move of the auto combo here. Because this one can actually be triggered from a distance even. If you don’t land the first two hits Frieza can hit with a third attack from long-range. So there’s another example of where a normal attack from Frieza is just another good zoning option.
And when you match the medium attack button this his is the second auto combo.
And now that we know his abilities here are some extra tips on how to use them.
Tip: Swap out Frieza after transforming if you put Frieza in the assist position.
After he transforms into golden Frieza he will retain the full duration of his transformation. Now since Frieza spends three bars just to transform chances are you won’t have a lot of meter after the transformation. So my advice is transformed as soon as you can in the fight and swap them out get the meter with the other characters.
This will be not only useful because then you can use golden Frieza with more meter once you bring him back in. but also you will then have freezes assist attack as golden Frieza. and you’ll actually deal around 1% more damage every time you land the assist attack.
And his assistant AK is just one of the best in the game. his earth breaker coming from the assist position covers so much of the screen. So it’s able to interrupt a lot of what the opponent can throw at you. And if you manage to land a hit you can totally follow up with a super dash into a full combo.
So yeah, in my opinion, that’s how you use Frieza transformation. You transforming you get out unless you have a ridiculous amount of meter. But that’s not all he’s got obviously but I feel the rest of my advice would be a little bit more obvious more predictable. He’s got great zoning so take advantage of that against characters who can’t zone very well.
Against the rush down types just keep them away with earth breaker. Next time you’ll die in death saucer. Even freezes medium-range normals and if they got close that ends up not being a big problem for Frieza. Because almost all of these attacks also work at close range. And it’s not like he’s useless when it comes to combos. He’s surprisingly beginner-friendly given how complexity is.
So it’s not hard to make stuff happen even at close rang.e he’s definitely a character with the zoning focus. but I’d say that overall he’s a pretty well-balanced character.
and that’s our character profile for Frieza thank you all for your kind requests in the comments down below next week we’re doing Majin Buu in DBFZ because that’s actually the last character that we got to play. Thank you very much for watching. I’ll see you guys next time boy.
