6 DBFZ Tips that the Tutorial DOESN’T Teach You!!!

Published by:

What’s up guys welcome to another Dragonball fighterZ video. So in today’s video, I’m gonna be doing a little bit of a list. These are six Dragonball fighterZ tips that the tutorial does not teach you.

So these are kind of some secret techniques that people have figured out on their own the game does not explain them to you but I’m gonna show them to you in this video.

#1 First of all I want to talk about Reflect’s many uses.

So the tutorial does tell you how to use reflect but it doesn’t exactly tell you everything it does.

So you may already know that you can use reflection to push the opponent off you if they’re attacking you.

But it does a little more than that you can also use a reflect to reflect projectiles.

By the way, I forgot to mention reflect this back plus special in case you didn’t know.

So you can reflect key blasts away even if they do a whole ton of key blasts.

You can just mash reflect and it’ll get rid of all of them and it even destroys the stage background which I think is pretty cool.

But that’s not all Kamehameha we can reflect those. That’s fine get that out of here even super Kamehameha doesn’t matter reflect is too powerful. You can reflect the whole thing.

So reflect has a lot more uses than you might initially think. I think it’s an extremely powerful technique that we’re the only kind of scratching the surface of right now.

#2 Okay next up I want to talk about tagging into Level 3 – tagging out of supers.

So you may already know that if you press tag during a super your second character will come in and do his super.

But he just does a level one super and you may be wondering is there a way to tag in with a level three.

And it just so happens that there is if you hold back and press tag then the character will come in with a level 3 super instead.

So this does a ton of damage as you can see which is pretty valuable.

But it’s worth noting that you cannot tag out of a level 3 super you can only tag into them.

So here if I do my level 3 I can press tagged as much as I want but I’m not gonna be able to tag out so that’s worth noting.

#3 Ok so next up I want to talk about Instant air dashing.

So you probably already know that you can air dash by a double tapping forward or backward in the air

But what if you want to do it really low to the ground. So that you can get a fast overhead that you can combo offer

So the more traditional way that people do this is they tap up forward and then forward. And if you do it fast you’ll get an instant air dash.

And if you do up back and then back you’ll get a backward air dash.

So this is how people traditionally do instant air dashes in these types of games.

But there is a different way to do it in this game that you might find a little easier if you’re having trouble with this motion.

So what you do is in the air you hold forward and press Super dash.

So this is the Super dash button if I do it while holding forward I get in air dash.

And this is pretty handy if you’re specifically having a problem in putting the up forward forward motion for instant air dashing.

Try this out and you might find it a little bit easier.

#4 So next up the number four tip so we already talked about tagging out of supers but can you tag into a Super without doing a super first and it turns out you totally can.

If at any point during a combo, you do a half circle forward and then press tag you will tag into a super.

So I’ll just do it here you can see piccolo comes in as does his super and this only cost one meter.

Krillin did not do a super here.

So you can pretty much always do this with any character you can just bring them in for a super.

So this is really really handy this opens up a lot of combo possibilities.

That isn’t normally possible you can even do it into a level three if you do a half circle back and tag then you’ll tag into a level three.

So there’s definitely a lot of combo possibilities here that I haven’t figured out yet.

But I think that this is gonna be a pretty common technique for inching extra damage out of a combo.

#5 For my number five tip I want to talk about crouching heavy or 2h.

So this attack it launches which is nice you can go into a combo afterward but it has another very valuable property.

It is invincible to airborne moves.

So if the opponent is air dashing and at you, crouching heavy will just beat it clean every single time.

And then you can get a combo afterward.

And I talked about this in another video but this also applies to the super dash.

If the opponent is super dashing at u 2h will beat at every single time and you get a free combo.

So this is really really important if the opponent’s taking to the sky is trying to rush you down with air attacks.

Just remember that crouching heavy will beat them all clean.

And you get a big reward in the form of a combo.

#6 And for the sixth and final tip I want to talk about sparking.

So you may already know you activate sparking by pressing all four attack buttons.

And you may know some of the things it does but it does a lot of things that aren’t very well dash documented in the game.

So for example, if you’re damaged you see how I have blue in my life bar.

You might already know that sparking recovers the blue on your life bar slowly.

So that’s pretty handy but that’s far from the only thing that sparking does.

It also increases your damage.

You can see if I do a light-medium-heavy combo it does damage if I do it in sparking.

It does so that is a really big increase in damage while you’re in sparking.

Sparking also changes the way you can jump cancel normals.

Normally you can only jump cancel uh normal if it hits.

So you can see here I just hold up during this and I’ll jump cancel it but if the opponent is blocking.

You cannot jump cancel this at all.

But if you’re in sparking you can.

So you might be wondering why is this important well this opens up a lot of pressure.

Especially in the corner if you have the opponent in the corner you can do some really crazy rush down by junk canceling your attacks.

You so you can mix them off high-low.

You can keep the pressure going.

And they’re gonna have to work really hard to get out of this.

One other thing sparking does is so you know that if you press the medium and heavy attacks at the same time you get a vanish attack.

And so normally vanish just makes you teleport to the other side and hit the opponent.

But if you are in sparking mode if you hold the vanish keys.

You will teleport behind them but you won’t do an attack.

So this is pretty useful because after that you can do whatever you want.

You can go into a mixup.

You can maybe land and then just do a dragon rush.

And you can do all kinds of nonsense.

This really opens up your mixup opportunities.

You can even call and assist and do it to cross them up.

It’s pretty strong and this is only possible during sparking outside of sparking.

If you hold vanish you just get the normal vanish attack as usual.

And finally, the last thing that sparking gives you is it affects your super dash.

So you can see normally if you do a super dash in the opponent blocks.

You kind of bounce off.

And you can press buttons but they might not necessarily hit.

And there’s a little bit of recovery there.

But during sparking your super dash will actually move you towards the opponent.

And you can press buttons immediately afterward.

So super dash becomes much more of a pressure tool because you actually get the advantage if the opponent blocks it.

So for this reason sparking is a super powerful technique.

And you only get one per round but when you do use it it can really turn the tide of things guys.

It can really really make you a damage and pressure monster.

So that’s gonna be it for the list guys hopefully you found this informative hopefully there were some surprises for you in here.

Thank you very much for watching let me know down in the comments what kind of content you want to see for this game.

Because I’m gonna be doing a lot more DBFZ videos in the future.

So please hit that sub button if you’d like to and I will see you in the next video bye guys.


Kid Buu Combos – Tips & Tricks – DBFZ

Published by:

What’s up dudes max here back to another Dragonball FighterZ breakdown. Today focusing on another character which is sort of a deviation from a character we’ve seen in the game at first launch which was Buu.

And I really want to focus a bit on Kid Buu because he does alter quite a bit in terms of some of the other characters that are in the game that of other variances. We literally just talked about Gohan and how he’s changing between his adult and teen version.

And this is another pretty good example of that. So let’s go ahead and find out the differences. Again, this was footage taken from a special event at Bandai Namco where they gave us a special opportunity to cover some of the game. but there were a very limited time constraints of my apologies there’s not a ton of footage and I didn’t get a ton of time. But just enough to understand what the hell Kid Buu is about.

Now the biggest question you have is that if Kid Buu is going to be as similar to Fat Buu that we’ve seen earlier in the videos in the beta everything like that. And luckily my answer to that is no. He’s actually quite a bit different while having a few similarities he is fundamentally a different character outside of just his stature. He’s the longer a fat character he has transformed into a smaller stature character.

So he’s more difficult to hit but it’s kind of hard to say whether or not this one dishes out more or less damage. It’s a little weird because the damage values of the game are kind of all over the place right now and they said they’re tweaking them so leave that as it is. I think that Kid Buu does pretty good damage now let’s talk about his specials.

The mystic ball attack is what everyone was expecting. This move is performed either in the air or on the ground and it’s essentially your go-to combo ender.

The interesting thing about the e X version or the one that uses meat or the heavy version is the fact that it does set up for eight combos after you’re left in a state where they’re kind of juggling with the opponent.

And you can hit buttons to extend the combo even further. So like other characters like Cell that use their ex-special moves that leave two actual more combos, this is kind of similar with Kid Buu which I do like and is going to lead to some pretty creative and crazy-looking stuff.

Especially converting from the air to the ground. The mystic arms swing is a command grab that grabs characters out of the sky.

I wasn’t entirely sure if this grabs blocking opponents but I don’t think it does I believe this is a physical hit grab meaning that you have to hit them with it.

But luckily Buu has some fairly interesting attacks his sweep attack puts his foot through the ground just like in the show as he knocks you up into the sky and you can do this a couple of times and go straight into this attack bringing them back down to the ground.

The e^x version puts them into a slightly more drugged level state but I wasn’t entirely sure if you could get a combo after this. However with many other characters assists that lead to a lot of different opportunities for combos.

That we haven’t seen yet you definitely can throw out an assist after this and then follow up with the pursuit attack and get a full aerial combo. It’s pretty damn cool looking like you rip them from the sky and reminds me a lot of what piccolo does with his stretchy arm attacks as well.

That’s about it for kid booze physical special moves. However, his key blast attacks have three different specials. And the first one is the candy beam.

This thing is pretty fast. But I do not believe was any different than a regular projectile this is also good for combo Enders. It looks really cool it practically looks like a super and it ends with Kid Buu.

Essentially just eating the hell out of you. However, I wasn’t sure if this had a special property to it because this was in training mode when I did try this whether or not it absorbs enemy life and gives it to you or meter or anything like that. It just looks like a very cinematic finishing projectile attack that you want to use at the end of combos.

Now the move that’s gonna be really good and possibly one of kid boos best moves is called the arm ball. He shoots out a projectile that is thrown from his arms and hovers around the opponent for quite some time hitting them multiple times.

This thing just seems incredibly good not only does it hold your opponent in space. It holds them an opportunity for you to get in getting damaged follow up with like a launcher or a smash attack. Tagging your other character anything like that. This is extremely good for tag-team fighting games and I wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of the things that makes Kid Buu probably a very good character.

Kid Buu also has an aerial Kamehameha you can only perform this in the air which is standard fare for Kamehameha specials in the game. And he only has two supers to compliment this special move toolset.

The first one is the human extinction attack which sends a ton of projectiles to the top of the screen as they come to Cassie down hitting the opponent.

The cool thing is on the way up these projectiles can also hit the opponent as well as on the way down.

So if you have an opportunity to DHC into this or set something up for another character. This thing can be extremely good because the damage on the way up catches the opponent and if it carries them down it does even more.

So we’re talking about very effective level ones. This might be a very good one and Kid Buu does seem to have a couple of tools. That might make him once again a pretty good character.

Kid Buu another level one is called the pearl flash.

And he essentially pounds his chest and dies towards the opponent in a very weird and awkward angle. This is essentially the only other level one he’s going to have to convert from the air.

Because you can do it from the ground or in the air, I’m kind of curious if this thing has any other properties in terms of like invincibility or if you could just plow through other attacks. But want the weight and do some testing to see how good pearl flash is because the damage alone does not seem amazing.

Of course, his level three is the planet burst.

And this one is your usual fair cinematic huge-ass level three does pretty good damage the best part is that. It’s an aerial super as well as a grounded one. So if you want to convert to big damage, you can get that from an air combo any conversion from the ground.

It’s one of the best aspects of some level threes in this game because many characters level threes are either performed just the air or the ground. And Kid Buu gets Bowl.

One of the other big notable things I wanted to mention this character is that similar to Buu.

Buu had a huge amount of stretching attacks where he can sort of lunge his head and punch forward and convert damage from that. And it did a lot of damage because it was heavy. Kid Buu has an insane normal which is either his crouching medium or a standing medium.

We showed the crouching medium how he sort of steps through the ground this seems to cover a pretty damn crazy amount of space. But his standing medium in the air or on the ground is ridiculous. It takes the character from a distance and pulls him forward which is awesome, to say the least.

Kid Buu definitely is going to have some kind of insane stuff with this because once he pulls himself over. He can go for cross-ups almost anything of that. That he chooses to go for a pursuit attack to keep them neutral like this is gonna be a really good tool for this character.

I do see a lot of potential with Kid Buu and I feel like. I like him a little bit more than regular Buu as of right now her fat boo. so I want to play more with them. I like the fact that he’s incredibly evil and a lot of his animations have some great flourishes and stuff.

So once again, I like the really bad guys in a lot of this game so far. And I just kind of want to see more of that so in the future I hope we just get more kind of characters to compliment this. That’s all I was able to get for Kid Buu right now. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below and as always I’m going to leave you guys with a couple of combos.

They was able to figure out with the character nothing too crazy we didn’t have that much time but stay tuned we’re gonna have more Dragonball FighterZ breakdowns and let me know which character you’d like to see next as always guys thank you a ton for watching appreciate the thumbs up my name is Max and I’ll see you next time.


Adult Gohan Breakdown – Combos – Tips & Tricks – DBFZ

Published by:

What’s up dudes max here back to another Dragon Ball FighterZ breakdown. Today focusing on one of the next most requested characters which is going to be Adult Gohan. Again to remind you all this footage was captured at a special Bandai Namco event, and we didn’t have a ton of time with all the characters.

So there might not be as much footage as I’d hope but at least enough to cover the special moves the combos and the base idea of what the hell is going on because Adult Gohan has some pretty interesting aspects to him some stuff that I was excited about some stuff that I was disappointed with. And then eventually became very curious because more information came to light. so let’s talk about that right now.

There are several aspects of Adult Gohan that you’ll find comparable to teen Gohan which is also in this game as well. He was one of the first characters that were actually amongst the roster that was playable played with him quite a bit and there is absolutely similarities between the two there are a couple of aspects that make Adult Gohan sort of have his own interesting gimmick. That had me really excited going into this but before we get into that let’s talk about the different special moves and how effective they are.

Gohan got a pretty interesting command normal in terms of an actual proper launcher. He’s got down forward with heavy which is called the ultimate high kick. And this thing just looks like a proper launcher and another Marvel vs Capcom game or another versus game. And it just launches the opponent into the air without the usual jump canceling of a standing medium.

It’s interesting this character has this but I later understand why he has this specific move because of a very specific reason which we’ll talk about very soon. But he’s got that and who I’ve access to it at all times which makes him have a little bit more combo potential than most.

Adult Gohan also has the Jet uppercut which is similar to teen Gohan and this is exactly what you might think it is.

It’s a proper uppercut seems to have some amount of invulnerability not too much of a difference between the medium and light versions and the heavy version or the one that uses a meter. That’s just a little bit more damage it’s kind of par for the course.

The machine gun kick is also a shared special with the other version to go on in the game where you’re in the air you do fireball forward without a light medium or heavy and you get access to this multi kicking Chun-li kind of special move.

This thing is really awkward I feel it’s only good for approach because if you actually put it in combo with the light and medium version. It doesn’t really go anywhere so I feel like I’m missing something with this move. But if you do use the one that does require a meter on the heavy version then it sets up for this big like sort of cinematic giant kicking thing that launches them across the screen. And you can get a vanishing attack if you’re close to the wall you can get a wall bounce stuff like that exactly like teen Gohan does.

However, he does have a unique special call to the Ultimates back attack which is this lunging overhead strike.

The light one sort of is in front the medium one seems to go behind and then the heavy one sort of goes like up and in front. It’s kind of interesting this thing is going to be great for the mix up potential because it is a proper overhead. You can set up for a low attack and then go to the overhead you don’t get a lot off of this move from what I understand. But it is something to mix up the opponent to make them afraid that they want to stop blocking low and potentially block this overhead. So that’s an interesting tool to have but some other characters do have that so it’s not entirely crazy different.

In terms of his key attacks, he does have this interesting Homme strike that’s sort of invisible and goes across the screen.

I kind of love the way this move.

Look like many other characters, he has a Masako projectile that goes across the screen and is kind of fast and once again is par for the course.

Now the really interesting aspect of Adult Gohan that I was the most excited about is that. This character is said to have a seven bar install super.

Now for some of you guys that might be sort of new to arc system works games or enemy fighter in general. Install supers refer to a character that it’s a powered up state. This is largely popular from salt bad-guy as he has something called a dragon install where he becomes an insane version of that character for a limited period of time.

An Adult Gohan has something kind of similar to a move called potential unleashed potential. Unleash has different variants between a level one all the way up to a level seven yes you can change this to use all seven of your meters for the final version of potential unleash.

But let’s just talk about level one and if you use it this thing does act like a regular Splash Damage super, it does a little bit of damage but you can properly combo it.

And at that point, Adult Gohan is going to get access to some interesting modifiers of his regular attack pattern.

For example, he gets a new move called the machine gun punch which is down forward with the light attack, only you can use this during potential unleash it’s a multi-strike attack.

And it seems kind of good for chain combos and going into confirms and stuff like that. But it doesn’t seem amazing by any means. I also noticed that some of his attack damage is slightly different after the potential unleash has been unleashed.

But it’s not a lot we’re talking about a very small percentage but the one that’s really good is the ultimate back attack and how it changes.

Essentially if you use potential Unleashed at any single point between level 1 to level 7. This special move will gain a tracking property meaning that from across the screen you could have an almost instant overhead that is right behind your opponent’s head like that is extremely good and very good reason to use at least level 1 version of potential Unleashed.

Because he doesn’t actually have any other level 1 supers believe it or not and for a long time as we were trying to figure out what the hell the level 7 version does as it really didn’t seem like it modified anything else about the character. I was fairly disappointed with Adult Gohan because man you’re expecting to drop 7 bars on a super that powers up your character. I would hope that it’s something more than a small increase in damage as well as some modifications to a few of his special moves.

I wanted to see something absolutely crazy like a dragon install so I was kind of like I don’t know what the hell’s going on with this thing. I’m just kind of confused is it not done when I was later given a hint by someone who has had more time with the game. This move upon reaching level 7 will give you access to something that no other character has which is the ability to break the combo chain. I didn’t get a lot of footage of this because I learned it later but Golan has access to like we said and unique launcher that no other character seems to have in the game.

Now, this is important because we just mentioned he gets this unique machine gun chain punch only when in potential Unleashed. So this means that he can actually break the attack patterns of just going from light to medium to heavy or light standing medium crouching medium like anything like that.

He does not have to abide by those rules anymore he can change the combo attack chain but he cannot repeat the same strike multiple time. So if you just wanted to keep doing standing medium over and over again what you actually can’t. But what it does mean is that you’ll have to be prepared to block against, Gohan in ways that you don’t normally block against any other character in this game.

I honestly feel that this might not be that amazing for raw combo damage, but it could make the full level 7 unleashed version of Gohan an absolute nightmare when dealing with him on the block. If you have to block all these attacks and they’re coming from a variety of angles and then he goes into an assist and then they can keep doing several other attacks. That is lunging forward and keep their pressure.

You have to remember that this game does not have push blocking you cannot force someone to get off of you when you’re in a raw blocking state. That’s gonna be absolutely crazy. The only thing I’m slightly disappointed with because this does seem like it’s going to be mechanically really damn good for this character is that it’s not incredibly flashy. He really just has a little bit of electricity on himself I understand it’s sort of referencing a thing in the show.

But I was hoping that there would be some sort of insane crazy thing he’s got access to a whole bunch of other special moves. Heavily modifies his supers, something like that and that doesn’t appear to be the case. However, I think it’s still going to be very good. We’ll see how good it is in the long run because he does have one of the cooler level threes in the game.

Which is sort of similar to his younger version also having a family form of the Kamehameha. In this one, the only one I was able to get footage of is Goten coming out and assisting them by throwing the giant blast.

But I have seen another version where it’s gone ten go on and I think it was Goku. I have I’m actually not too sure where this footage came from but we were unable to make it happen at any point and during several other points where a character like Gotenks is on the team then when he comes out and does the level three and it’s just Adult Gohan by himself.

So I’m kind of curious the modifiers behind this and we got to go check out to find out what exactly is going on. But like I said the only one I ended up seeing was him and Gotenks and his solo.

The other last important thing which I think is gonna be very good for this character is a movement special. I believe the input for this was down to medium in the air and he essentially falls to the ground really fast.

Now, this is gonna be good for mix-ups it’s going to be good for pressure after assists anything like that. Because one of the most dangerous things in versus games. If not all of the fighting games is something called an empty jump low. Where someone thinks since you’re jumping you’re gonna be doing an overhead attack. And then you immediately pop down to the ground and suddenly you’re doing a low attack to catch them off-guard. That’s where this is going to be very good if you’re logged down from an assist and then Gohan jumps and immediately teleports back down. Where the hell is you supposed to block you’re gonna have to guess most of that time.

That’s all I got to Adult Gohan right now there’s a ton to be potentially unleashed with this character no pun intended. That I’m kind of waiting for there’s gonna be requirements of lab time I’ve already seen things where he can whiff cancel some of his chains when potential has been unleashed on him. And they just keep going for some reason so there’s a lot more to him. I do wish it looked a lot flashy er and a lot crazier and a lot more Dragon install ish but it’s hard to deny that this characters gonna have access to some pretty insane things if you want to save up all seven of those bars.

As always dudes thank you a ton for reading. Leave me a comment below which character you want to see next for the Dragon Ball FighterZ breakdowns. I’ll see you next time away.


Hit breakdown – Super, Combos – Tips & trick – DBFZ

Published by:

What’s up, dudes, dbfgame.net here back to another Dragon Ball breakdown featuring. What is most likely the second most requested character of all the latest new characters and it’s going to be Hit.

We’re gonna be focusing on the character his gameplay and I got some cool combos to show you guys at the end. But sadly a lot of my direct footage of these moves didn’t come out too well and I lost a bit of it.

There’s a lot of people playing Hit and we’re gonna use some spliced footage to show you exactly what’s going on. But I still have some pretty sick combos again.

This came from a Bandai Namco event where we were playing with the characters we didn’t get a ton of time. But enough to get a basic understanding of what Hit is about and how different he is from the rest of the cast.

So the first thing I thought when I first saw Hit playable in the game was that my good man. This guy really reminds me of Akihiko from persona 4 arena. Albeit I didn’t play a ton of that game. That was the first impression I got.

I think others are probably gonna be making comparisons to the slayer of the Guilty Gear series. Especially considering how heavy grounded rush down he is. Because that is absolutely what he is. This is one of the best characters in the game next – Yamcha which we’ll talk about a bit in the future that is entirely good on the ground and really is kind of awful in the air.

However, a lot of aerial battles don’t really take place in Dragon Ball FighterZ unless you consider the pursuit like you’re your aerial dash. That I guess but every character gets access to that you don’t really have a lot of like flying characters in this game for the most part similar to other versus game.

So I wouldn’t be too worried about that because Hit excels on the ground so much that it’s ridiculous. His prowess is mixing you up with a left and right direction. Confirming Hits from full screen and then moving his way in.

And he is the first tried-and-true proper counter character. He’s going to be going into counter states that can do something about projectiles physical Hits and then immediately rapidly move across the screen. And then punish you for it which is awesome – look at.

His counter Hit states have multiple versions of them. So if you go into a counter Hit state with like fireball forward, he’s just standing there in a neutral pose and then will execute multiple different attacks from that. Whether or not it’s a punch a rush for you can choose to dash the character forward to kick them into the sky anything like that.

He has multiple moves that are the result of using directly counter-attacks. And a lot of this character is going to be understanding what your opponent is going to do and then mixing up them as a result.

The other thing that some will not like about Hit is the fact that he is going to be a very technical and probably execution heavy character at least in comparison to Dragon Ball FighterZ characters. I mean come on everything in, this game is a fireball for Dan a fireball back.

This character is going to have stance canceling. Meaning that you’re gonna go into a combo chain with his stance or enter a stance through fireball forward with the light attack button, and then have to execute another attack right after. That to get something to follow up after so that part is a little bit more execution than I was used to for Dragon Ball characters.

That actually took me a little bit while or a little while to get used to doing that. And as a result of doing it, there are some interesting stance cancel combos that I was able to find.

Now, this isn’t all just about close-range battles and close-range attacks and let them ride mix-ups. He does have some interesting range stuff that he can do.

It does also have another stance that has this glowing form around him. And if he does either up down or forward I believe with an attack button. He does this multi Hit strike from a very very very long screen distance away. You can confirm into this using the vanish attack and then follow up with a full combo.

So that’s actually kind of interesting and I do dig that about him that he does have like either really close good range or some stuff that it can use some very far. but the mid-range like that seems to be maybe where Hit might be a little weak.And especially in the air because obviously, he doesn’t have a lot of aerial attacks. His sweep mind you is also ridiculously slow.

His grounded attacks can be very quick on the light buttons but the mediums are a lot different than some other characters.

Meaning that the combo path for Hit might be smitten be slightly different than you used it for some other characters where you just jump out of a standing medium attack and go for things.

You can still absolutely do that with Hit. But just be prepared that some stuff is gonna feel very different with this character. The immediate obvious like good traits of Hit isn’t going to be like glaringly apparent.

It’s gonna take some work to get good. with this guy. And I don’t think that’s specifically a bad thing. I actually kind of like that Hit and Beerus which we’ll also talk about in the future. Our characters that are kind of changing the archetype of what we’re used to in Dragon Ball FighterZ. It gives me a decent amount of good hope for the future of the other DLC characters always showing up.

That’ll have some interesting play styles because like I did say a lot of characters in this game do have very similar traits and move sets and you kind of play one and you play the other.

Sort of similar but that’s the way in a lot of different vs games with their like auto chain combos or their combos in general that work a certain way.

It sort of breaks that mold and I dig that about him and it also helps that he looks friggin awesome when doing it. One last thing to note is his key attack move when your key button is essentially your special button in this game.

It just throws out a very small basic projectile that can be dashed through and Hit doesn’t actually have that. He does not have regular projectile attacks in the ways that you think.

Instead, he’s given a counter State on his key button which you can repeat over and over again. So if you want to like Harry multiple attacks and dash all over the place that look like you’re completely in the opponent’s mind. This is gonna be the character to show off some sick.

Hit does have an interesting unblockable attack where he sort of creates this projectile on the ground. That hovers across the screen and can actually manifest itself at different points of the screen it’s just a nice kind of tool that you can use to make your opponent afraid of your ground-based attacks and get them to start jumping for some reason.

So it does have access to more tools than most characters in this game. Which makes them a bit more complex but one of my favorite things at the end of all this is like his movement and mobility. When you see this guy dashing across the screen really fast and manipulating different things from a counter-attack to striking you to using a vanishing attack and converting that into big damage.

supers are also fairly versatile with one being in the air one being a grounded level one and then his level three also being on the ground too. So that’s a good thing you’re gonna have many opportunities to get damaged with Hit and when you do get damaged by this character.

It seems like it hurts quite a bit. Either way absolutely one of my favorite characters in the game right now. I still feel like I barely touched the surf of him like understanding the stance canceling stuff he has a launcher from.

One of his counters, Hit states that you can kick them up into the air this stuff just looks really neat either way one of my favorite characters in the game right now and I am looking forward to more of them.

But I’m curious who you guys want to see next we can take a look at Beerus we can go into go tanks anything like that if you want to see Nappa. If you want to see Ginyu there is a lot of characters in this thing that I grabbed footage of especially of Tien and Yamcha.

And I want to see which one you want to see next. So please in the comments below let me know which character we should focus on for the next. Because luckily enough unlike this one I have a lot of footage of those other characters and I lost a lot of my Hit footage.

So until then thank you, dudes, a ton of reading and joy a couple of combos and I appreciate a thumbs up if you enjoyed it. And I’ll see you next time I continue.


Beerus Breakdown – Tips and tricks – DBFZ

Published by:

What’s up dudes, dbfgame.net here back to another breakdown of Dragon Ball FighterZ characters. Today we’re focusing on the third one and is probably the most requested of the comments. Which is going to be focusing on Beerus.

Before we get into things this footage was recorded at a Bandai Namco event and I didn’t have a ton of time with all the characters. But I did have some to go over their moves.

Figure out some combos and at least give you guys a decent breakdown. As far as what the hell is going on with some of these characters. We’ve already covered a bit of Goku black and hid.

But today we’re gonna focus on a character that possibly is one of the weirdest in the game in terms of the general DragonBall FighterZ play style. Let’s talk about Beerus.

One of the best comparisons I can give you of Beerus in terms of other characters. That arc system works is made is most likely going to be venom from the guilty gear series.

Although there’s a similarity. It’s not exactly identical by any means. Venom was able to control screen space by having manipulated projectiles. He could put projectiles on the screen that would hold their spot. And then if he collided with them they would go in different directions angles and speeds.

And that is largely the same game plan that Beerus has in Dragon Ball FighterZ. But it is fundamentally different because it does act much differently. He seems to have a basis in what venom does but his execution is a lot different and let’s talk about that.

Beerus regular ki blast isn’t anything special to a single projectile and his jumping ki blast isn’t really any different from many other FighterZ where it shoots multiple attacks.

And the reason behind this is that this is sort of the characters go to regular projectile attack. Because he doesn’t have one similar to other characters. He’s got these weird orbs that fill the screen.

This first one that summons about 6 orbs that go all around his body. I believe was executed with fireball forward and the key button. And these orbs are actually tangible on the screen objects you can also collide with them with certain attacks.

If you force your opponent into them they do indeed cause a collision. And you can follow up with a combo or something crazy if you set it up.

There are also ways to manipulate them in certain ways which I didn’t have the entirety of time to figure out.

But there was quite a few and the different ways you can sort of manipulate these projectiles do change a lot of what Beerus can do instead just having them sit there on the screen.
He’s got a spreading projectile attack which is done in the air.

And this one specifically seems to be a get off me kind of mood. Not really good for combos has a bit of startup. But does spread out in an equal around a range around him. Which could be good in some situations just to stop your opponent from rushing in on certain things.

His regular fireball forward attack with either the light medium or heavy buttons is a summoned orb that Beerus kicks across the screen.

These can be summoned at the multitude of angles either going down or straightforward or up and stopping. There’s a lot of different things you can do with them and this move also collides with the previous move where a summons six orbs around the screen. You can kick them in specific directions with this attack and it just depends on which version you’re using.

The ex-version summons a multitude of orbs that he boots across the screen and you can follow up for some pretty crazy pressure. That I don’t believe can be Pursuit attacked through like the giant air dash. I’m not too sure if it goes through these I didn’t have a chance to test that. But usually, only regular ki blasts are nullified by that specific move of jet dashing across the screen.

But wouldn’t be surprised if these are tangible and even could stop the opponent from doing that. Which is great if you’re upset with your opponent constantly like dashing in on you. You don’t know how to stop it Beerus might be just the character for you.

Combine all these attacks together and Beerus gets quite a few different actions during even a regular jump. I’ve been able to fit in three different things that you can combine when you’re putting this move to the next one to the next one.

And in most games, characters only have so many permitted actions that they’re allowed in the sky. And Beerus gets quite a bit so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a lot of this kind of stuff with this character.

One of his only proper physical attacks special moves is this lunging palm strike which can be done on the ground.

And I think this thing was an overhead when I was testing it. The ex-version just launches them across the screen a little bit more. but it’s mostly good for ending combos as you go into super and then follow up with either orbs or something like that, as they get up from it.

Beerus level 1 super is interesting as it can technically be modified.

He summons this giant spirit ball that comes down to the ground and the longer you let it travel the more damage it. This is a good super but albeit not that damaging but you can amplify the damage for an extra bar. Which tax on the second part of the super.

The funny part is that you can do it very early during the first portion of the super which leads to very little damage if you choose to let it rock way too early. But if the first part of the super travel is a good distance and then you activate the very end it’s decently damaging but not great by any means.
The level one super so far with some of the newer characters don’t do a lot of damage. But as level 3 is a decent command grab style attack.

That literally Yanks the opponent and goes into a cinematic animation. And mechanically the other character that really reminds me of this is trunks with his level 3 as well. There are also some very unique animations to this one if you properly kill a character. I’m not too sure if it’s only against Goku Black you can like perform Hawkeye against them and they just straight vanish across the screen.
It’s not super flashy but it’s a nice reference for finishing the animation. I hope it’s not only against like Zuma so I want it to be against like all the characters where you essentially obliterate them if you kill them with the level 3. That would be a nice touch I would love to see that but I didn’t have a chance to really mess around with it. Because I didn’t get a chance to kill anybody with this specific move.

Tips and tricks

That’s about all I got for Beerus in the limited time. Once again, he’s a very different character than the usual roster member in Dragon Ball FighterZ which is what I appreciate. I do feel that if there is a character that’s going to be a keep away style. That Beerus is most likely going to be it with controlling distance. And manipulating these orbs and it might be hard to get on him.

Especially if you can’t do a dashing attack through these projectiles, that will make him absolutely very good in a situation of just holding that space. But outside of that and nothing I got footage of he does have a very interesting crouching medium attack, no kidding there is a sweet move that he has.

Where if you press crouching medium he travels across like 3/4 of the screen. It is ridiculous how much you can catch people with this thing. And if you’re close to the enemy it just cuts that distance off and looks like a regular normal attack.

It’s not until you’re full screen and then you press down medium you realize the insanity of the length of this normal it. It blows my mind. Either way, I think this characters going to be very interesting.

I am curious to try some crazy setups with him it reminds me a lot of the hell’s own grenade super that Piccolo has it leads into some ridiculous DHC situations and tag moments. And stuff like that maybe the lingering fireballs might be really good. Especially for team compositions so I think Beerus is gonna fit on many different teams. Especially considering the way he plays.

But we’ll see it all depends if certain things work out the way. I was mentioning and if not he might only be okay. But either way, I’m just glad to see more character archetypes of mechanics introduced into the game. Which gives me hope that characters that’ll be introduced later in the future of Dragon Ball FighterZ could get even nuttier.

Which again would make me very happy as always dudes thank you a ton for reading. I’ll be back with more breakdowns of future characters. And which character you want to see next please leave me a comment below. And I’ll try to get the next one out as soon as possible. I’ll see you next time.

Dragon Ball FighterZ characters

Full Reveal & Thoughts about DBFZ Story Mode

Published by:

What’s up, dudes. We’re back. There’s another video that dropped recently. There have also been quite a bit of reaction videos. My apologies on that but this one’s pretty big because it’s the first I guess official story trailer for Dragon Ball fighterZ and this thing doesn’t have just story it’s got a lot more.

And it’s hinting at a lot of stuff even potential characters is what I’m being told. And I still have not checked it out yet even though it’s been a couple of days past. There also has been some gameplay that was officially revealed on a stream showing off things in terms of new mechanics character, moves changes to the game as well as the big reveal. As far as the Dragon Balls Shenron and his abilities what he gives you. And it’s not officially out there yet but we do have a pretty good idea what it does. I’ll talk about that in a later video but right now.

Let’s check out this trailer because it’s really not that far away.

So here’s the funny thing like apparently. The story is actually you inside the game like you take over characters or something like that. So it’s a completely like controlled and unique story.

I’m kind of glad because I’m not super versed up on everything Dragon Ball that it is. That way so I can get as much enjoyment out of it as any other person.

This chicks got to be evil like everyone. Everyone thinks she’s new wife is status but she’s got to be
evil people like evil. I suppose the player links with the super-warriors in the search for the hidden truth consisting of three arcs okay.

This is gonna get crazy. Oh my god. And they each have okay so you each level up the characters throughout this story mode. That’s really smart. You give them buffs and shit. Wow, it’s like killer instincts shadow Lords holy hell.

Oh man! yeah! She’s not a good guy.

Damn it was gonna have so much horseshit in and it’s gonna be a crazy montage of supers. So she kind of like confused God.

This story mode looks to be way more intensive than I thought. It was I could have sworn at some point in that trailer. There was like a character that we had not seen before wasn’t Android 21. It was definitely something different.

The crazy thing now is that along with this there was more gameplay. That showed up from the developers of Dragon Ball, Specifically going over all the new things in the game showing up Tien, Yamcha, Nappa, Captain Ginyu like every new thing that we haven’t seen a lot up. And i still got to find the best version of that to put that out.

But just to go over everything, I’m really happy that the story mode isn’t just like. It was with like guilty gear. Guilty gear had really high production value story mode. But it wasn’t any game like you just watched cutscenes. And went from cutscene to cutscene which left me not interested to play it at all like I watched a few cutscenes.

And then that was about it now with Dragon Ball at least. They’re doing something with it there’s like an adventure story mode. That has three arcs you take your character you level them up. You occupied the body of different Dragon Ball FighterZ throughout the story mode.

And then level them up accordingly with everyone else you give them buffs. Just like you might have seen is something like shadow Lords. It’s good to see that Dragon Ball is doing something different with its story mode and it’s not just a cinematic.

Story mode it is actually something that you can play and do a lot more of than just the general fighting. It’s the only it’s the only thing I’ve disliked about like the injustice slash Mortal Kombat.

Now the Rama story mode because they send it to it the best. The game itself isn’t really anything different. It’s just you fighting and at least with Dragon Ball fighterz that is going to be something different.

That’s a good thing I’m gonna get on those other videos as soon as possible to try to break them down. And see what the hell’s going on with the gameplay Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Because there has been a lot that’s been updated apparently. Thank you dudes very much for watching  and I’ll see you next.



Published by:

Hello and welcome to another Dragon Ball ZighterZ video. Today dbfgame.net presents a character profile for Android 18.

Android 18 was created by Dr. Gero with the purpose of destroying Goku. But as fate would have it, she ended up turning from Android to human. And from the villain’s side, she came over to the hero’s side. she did not do this alone. however at her side was always her twin brother Android 17 and in Dragon Ball FighterZ these two fights together as one. making this a unique character.

Before we even get specials and supers. There’s this unique attack that this character can perform by hitting back and a special button. Android 17 comes in and throws some ki blast allowing a teen to move freely while this happens. this is a great way to put some pressure on your opponents from a distance with 17 as you try to get closer with 18.

But now let’s get the specials. Android 18’s first special is the destructo-disc quarter circle forward plus the special button throws a simple ki blast that goes across the screen.

Alike Krillin, you cannot throw multiple Destructo-disc and unlike Frieza, these do not come back to hit you in the face. It is as simple as it gets.

The things do start to get a bit more complicated on our second special attack and that’s the barrier. This is one of the moves that makes Android 18 very unique: down down + the special button absorbs pretty much any attack and turns it into the meter.

And when I say it absorbs pretty much any attack. I mean melee strikes key blasts and even level 3 supers are powerless against this thing. This is also why 18 is good to have on your squad because her assist attack is actually the barrier.

So at any moment by just tapping the assist button 18 will come out and absorb the enemy’s attack. The barrier does require some practice and some precise timing. But it’s an easy way to fill up your meter incredibly fast. Which in turn allows a teen to spend supers all the time.

Moving on to the attack specials the first one is the back grab quarter circle forward and an attack button.

Executes this very close range command grab. It is very hard to execute thanks to its very short range. And it’s also very hard to lean into combos given its long animation.

But it is a good mix up and that’s really one of 18 strengths trapping. Opponents in a corner and once you get him blocking hit him with a background. All three variants are hard to connect. But if you do connect the light attack version can’t really be followed up by anything. The medium attack version can be followed up by an array of abilities and the same goes for the X version.

The second attack special is called the support attack quarter-circle backward and an attack button. Android 18 calls Android 17 to support her with a melee combo.

This is your go-to ability to apply pressure. It has a very high range on whatever version you activate the light or medium. But the medium attack version will deal more damage since 17 will stay in the field for longer and perform a bigger combo. While in the air disability changes a bit with 17 performing the same melee combo or activating the barrier himself.

The X version of this move is very special and unique. once you execute it 17 will show up and have a really big monologue. During this time if your opponent calls in any assist here’s what 17 will do.

Now you’ll probably still take the damage from the assist character. That 17 will punish him for coming into the field.And chances are he’ll catch the active character as well. So, in the end, you’ll be dealing more damage than receiving.

Now, do you bear in mind that you need to anticipate your opponent calling in and assist you can’t simply react. Because once the assist is out 17 won’t attack him. You’ve got to have 17 readies before the assistance calls which makes this a very high-level ability.

What if you do the ex-version of the support attack and Android 17 is ready to punish an assist character. Butter your opponent’s assist is actually Android 18 doing the barrier huh. What do you think happens next.

Convening of supers Android 18 has two supers at her disposal, a level one and a level three.her level one is called energy wave.

This is one of the easiest supers to connect in the entire game 18 teleports directly above the opponent and shoots directly downward. Meaning you can do it in pretty much any situation if your opponent is moving too much horizontally you might miss.

So this is not a great ability to use when your opponent does a super dash for instance. But if you combo this with any of your abilities you will hit nine out of ten times.

And her level 3 super is the Accel dance. Android 18 and Android17 lunge forward horizontally either on the ground or in the air. Its range is pretty decent not fullscreen but close enough and after the activation, the tweens perform a combo and the opponent finishing him off with a key blast each.

if Krillin is in your team and is alive this super actually has a different animation. Where Krillin will replace Android 17 and shoot a Kamehameha wave. But the super behaves exactly the same does the same damage the only thing that changes is the animation.

As far as Auto combo 1 this is what happens when you match the light attack button.

And this is what happens when you match the medium attack button.

And now that we know her abilities let’s look at how to use them.

I want to preface this bit with a disclaimer Android 18 is probably my worst character in Dragon Ball ZighterZ. And I believe I understand the theory, but without being able to execute it in practice.

I would advise you to take my advice with a grain of salt. Android 18 is one of the strongest mixes of characters in the current roster. I’d put her up there with Piccolo as such she will be a high-level character to play.

She’s not really something I’d recommend for beginners. It’s not very easy to do big combos with her, our abilities are tough to land and chain together. She’ll definitely take more practice than usual.

That’s probably because she’s a really strong character at opening up her opponent. just like she opened up Krillin.

If you know what I mean having the ability to call in seventeen to perform a big combo while you have free control of 18 is a great way to put pressure on an opponent. Suddenly he’s being hit by two characters at the same time. This gives you time to think while the opponent has to be worried about Android 17 attacking him.

So you can plan exactly how you’re gonna fix him up and how you’re gonna open him up to an attack. The problem is once you hit him it’s not like she can do some crazy big combos for big amounts of damage. So what usually happens after you hit an opponent is you just do a minor combo and link it.

Into your level 1 super which you can hit in pretty much any situation. Now on the bright side, she has a barrier shield which is just an awesome way to counter any opponent’s attack. If you can see it coming you can turn an enemy attack into the free meter. And that allows you to use your level 1 super witch again you can just use in pretty much any situation and then follow up with another character for bigger damage.

So if you have another character who’s capable of bigger damage. Just get Android 17 to gather some free energy for you by tapping. That assist button just like Krillin tap that ass.

The best Android 18 players that I saw were really good at getting past my guard but right after they did that they rarely went into some very big combos. They pretty much just went into their level one super every single time.

Android 18 is great for mix-up she’s great for a gathering meter for your really strong characters. And that’s gonna be a very specific advantage in something. You might want to have on your team of three but again it’s something kind of specific and not very beginner friendly.

Thank you for watching another DBFZ character profile. Next time we’re going back to your request to make sure you leave them in the comments down below according to my math.

There’s also the video at the bottom but as always thank you very much for reading and I’ll see you guys next time boy.


Future Trunks Combos – Tricks & Tips – DBFZ

Published by:

Hello and welcome to another Dragon Ball FighterZ tricks. Today dbfgame.net presents a character profile for Future Trunks.

After seeing his world destroyed by the Androids, Trunks travelled back in time to warn the earth warriors of the threat that was to come. This journey allowed him to meet his father for the very first time and become powerful enough to deal with his threat on his own. When he returned to his timeline in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Trunks is a balanced character with an above-average reach thanks to his sword a few Zoning options. As well as a good mix up capability.

Trunks first special attack is the Masenko which he learned from Gohan in the future timeline. The Masenko is a full-screen ki blast that has about the same priority as your typical Kamehameha. Meaning that it’s better than your regular ki blast. And you can use this to punish a super dash.

From second special attack is Change the Future. Trunks dash you’re slower than unleashes a huge blast at the enemy’s feet. You can do this with quarter-circle backwards and the special button.

And if you hold down the special button, you will actually fake this move. Trunks will dash forward but he won’t unleash the explosion. So if you’re playing against a more experienced player, you can’t use this. Because they’ll probably block to avoid being damaged by that attack.

So by faking your opponent, you can close in the distance and link it into some other move. Against beginners though they’ll likely just see this as a normal dash and trying to punish you for doing so. So don’t use this fake if you’re at the beginner level.

Moving on to Trump’s attack specials quarter-circle forward and an attack button does the Shining slash. Which is an overhead slash which can be done in the air and on the ground. This gives Trump some mix of ability by being able to quickly transition from a normal combo into an overhead strike.

This is your go-to move if your opponent is blocking low and depending on the heights. That you have when performing this move or how far in the air you are. You can even link it into your level 1 super which we’ll talk about a bit more later in the video.

And our last special attack from Trunks is the quarter circle backwards and an attack button. It’s called the cyclone buster. And it’s a very unique ability, that can be used in a variety of ways.

Depending on whether you hit the light or medium attack, Trunks will roll forwards or backwards. Through our testing, we figure this ability does not damage the enemy.

Even though Trunks is rolling up with a sword, Trunks does not turn into Sonic. This seems to be purely a movement ability that allows you to get in and out of trouble very quickly.

I always use this move to close in the distance that link it into a combo or if my opponent was blocking. I used it to back out before my opponent was able to counter. Furthermore, Trunks is able to interrupt this move in mid-air by pressing the special button in which he shoots a key blast downwards.

So to the best of my understanding, this is the ability that allows Trunks to jump in and out of danger with some relative ease. If you master this ability, you can be aggressive without fear of being punished by an opponent. In situations where other characters would just be completely screwed.

Moving on to the super attacks, Trunks has two supers a level one and a level three. His level one is fairly straightforward it’s the burning attack. And as you would expect Trunks shoot to key blasts forward, that travels horizontally.

This super can only be performed while on the ground which makes it a little less versatile than most level 1 supers. Or at least most projectile supers like the super kamehameha or the Big Bang attack.

And his level 3 super is the heat dome attack. And its activation is actually a grab. So Trunks must be in very close range to his opponents for this to connect. But it does go through block.

However, because you can equate it to a command grab, it actually has very low animation priority. If an opponent is rushing you there’s a very good chance, they’ll interrupt your super either by connecting a special attack or even by just punching you. That is enough to interrupt this super.

But if you do connect this super is very impressive visuals.

As far as Auto combo 1, Trunks has two of them just like everyone else. This is what happens when you match the light attack button.

And this is what happens when you match the medium attack.

And now with the abilities out of the way let’s learn how to use them.

At the beginning of this video, I described Trunks as a balanced character with good abilities for zoning and mix-up. And after showing you what makes Trunks special. It should be pretty obvious why. Is amassing Coe is as good as a Zoning ability as it gets in this game. And paired up will change the future.

Which in spite having Trunks lunch forward before the explosion. It’s done from a distance it can still be used on an opponent that’s far away. Since the explosion still covers a big portion of the screen. And even Trunks normal key blasts can be very useful.

Especially, when it does it while jumping. And when paired up with a cyclone buster then it’s not only good zoning. It’s also good mix up when an opponent is blocking an attack. They are usually searching for an opening to counter.

But with disability Trunks can deny them that opening by jumping backwards mid combo which can totally up an opponent for one of his ranged options.

Furthermore his Shining slash covers a very good business. And anyone who plays fighting games knows how valuable an overhead ability with this type of reach is.

He’s not the best in the game. I’d still rank Piccolo and Android 18 above him in terms of mix-up. But has got the ability to get in and out of danger quickly and some very good ranged options to make up for it.

So Trunks is a very good character at opening up his opponents, but what about finishing. them well that’s when things get a little tougher. And Dragon Ball fires you’ll find that some characters can only execute supers while they’re on the ground and that’s exactly the case with Trunks.

Plus Trunks doesn’t have a lot of combos that setup your opponent perfectly for super. So whether or not you can lend a super at the end of a combo ends up being very situational and that will be something that takes some getting used to.

Especially, if you’re coming from more beginner friendly characters like Goku and Vegeta. So in my opinion that really is Trunks biggest weakness.

He’s got to mix up he’s got the zoning, he’s even got a lot of combo potential. But when it comes to finishing his opponents with a super he won’t always be able to do it.

Besides his level 3 is very hard to link into any combo. So it’s really meant to be used at close range on the blocking opponent. And literally anything can interrupt it so it ends up not being the most reliable either.

So the summarize great opening character not a great finisher. I bet my is rethinking her life choices right about now.

That was the character profile for Trunks. If you’ve got any questions post them in the comments down below.And always thank you very much for watching and I’ll see you guys next time boy.


Piccolo Combos, Tips and Tricks – DBFZ

Published by:

       Hello and welcome back to another Dragon Ball FighterZ character. Today here on dbfgame.net were bringing you a character profile for Piccolo. Piccolo is an amazing mix of character. Perfect for going through even the toughest of defenses. Yeah in my opinion the strongest character in the current roster in that regard. But let’s look at his abilities and find out precisely why.

By simply hitting the Special Attack button, you’ll notice that instead of key blasts Piccolo will stretchy arm. If you hold a special button and the downward Direction, Piccolo will stretch his arm upwards. and you can also jump and stretch your arm downwards.

If you reach your opponent with your stretchy arm you’ll pull them towards. You sort of this can be useful to bring your opponent within melee range. But do practice and test out where you can link this in to. Because you can’t just follow up with anything so make sure you don’t pull your opponent in, just so it can beat your ass up.

Still with a special button if you hold down forward or down forwards and a special button. Piccolo will shoot some rays from his antennas. This is the demon shocker.

And depending on the direction you hold, Piccolo will shoot his chakra forwards or diagonally upwards. You may look short-range but it actually covers about half the screen. This will stun the enemy for a very short time. So make sure you know when you can use this and when you can follow up. This is typically used in the middle of a combo to go from some melee hits into a special attack.

But there are a few other cases when it’s useful and we finally arrived at his special moves. And we’ll start with a homing energy blast with quarter circle forward and a special button.

This is a very slow moving ki blast. Something you definitely use to set something up. You control an area of the stage with this ki blast and you can kind of hide behind it. While setting up your next attack, if you hold down the special button the energy blast will get bigger and slower. And you can really just spam these things if you want to.

Now the priority of this attack isn’t great. It’s very easy to counter it, because it’s basically got the same priority as your regular key blast. So if someone fires a normal key blast it will negate your homing energy blast. And if they fire something with a higher priority like a kamehameha  then it will just go through all of them the super dash also goes through it. So don’t think you’re completely safe for hiding behind those blasts. Be prepared to counter your opponents when they think they’re countering.

You next we have the demon elbow with quarter circle forward and an attack button.

Piccolo will lunge forward and actually raise up and attack the opponents from behind. The range of this attack gets bigger the heavier the attack button you press. The lighting medium attack versions are pretty similar the only difference between them being the actual range. But the heavy attack version actually has a different effect.

Because it looks like Piccolo is going to cross up and hit the opponent from behind. But he vanishes at the last second and strikes him from the front. This is clearly a mix of ability that you should use. When your opponent has become used to countering your light and medium demon elbows.

This is also a very easy for Piccolo to link into pretty much any of these melee combos. And he can even do it while in the air because you’ll actually track the enemy.

Our final special attack for Piccolo is a demon slicer with quarter-circle records and an attack button.

This attack has a pretty short to medium range if you just hit the light attack button. But the medium and heavy attack versions cover a pretty big area. This is the counter move Piccolo will block an attack during his initial animation. And then vanish and strike an opponent diagonally from the front or strike him vertically.

And actually cross up to the other side only the medium attack version crosses up. So basically, light attack is a short-range counter from the front. Medium attack is a long-range cross up counter. And the heavy attack is a long-range counter from the front.

If you mix up the button, you press you can really mess with your opponent. Because it is a counter attack and it is so fast. It will be pretty tough to react and block in the right direction.

As far as supers go Piccolo has three of them to level one supers and a level three. Piccolo can only execute supers while on the ground. None of his supers are available in the air.

Let’s start with his level one supers beginning with a special beam cannon with quarter-circle fourth and the right bumper.

It’s a straightforward beam that travels horizontally. But if you hold down the right bumper Piccolo charges special beam cannon. And then you can hit right or left to teleports Piccolo several times before shooting it. The damage seems to be the same so this is clearly just to mix up your opponent.

And you can even cross up to the other side if you manage to reach the opponents. But this is not as useful as you think it is. Because right before Piccolo shoots the beam there’s an animation. That gives the opponent plenty of time to change the direction of their guards. But hey try it out for yourself and see what works.

Piccolo second level one super is the hell’s own grenade with quarter circle forwards and the right trigger. Piccolo shoots a bunch of key blasts into the air and then has them converge on a target. Do be careful because this ability is easy to interrupt.

If Piccolo gets hit the key blast will vanish. And since they are key blasts their tech priority isn’t really the best. But the coolest thing about the hell’s Odin grenade is how long it lasts.

If it hits the enemy you’ll have enough time to set up something else. You can even follow up with a super – which allows you to combo. Or even connect with another super.

Like the level 3 for instance the light grenade with Piccolo backwards and the right bumper or trigger.

It’s the most straightforward of these supers. There’s nothing special to it it feels the same damage as other level threes in the game. And it’s just a key blast that shoots horizontally.

As far as Auto combos 1: this is what happens when you match the light attack button.

And this is what happens when you match the medium attack button Auto combo 2.

 And now that we know his moves here are some tips on how to play this character.

As far as combos go Piccolo isn’t the easiest. But he is capable some pretty sweet combos if you put in the time to practice. Both his diamond slicer and alwal can be linked with a super. His stretchy arms are able to pull an enemy that is falling down so you can keep hitting him.

It’s definitely not as easy as other characters but it is possible. And it just might takes a bit more practice than usual. But combos aren’t even his greatest strength so as a beginner you can actually take great advantage of Piccolo without even practicing too many combos. the key word here is cross up cross up cross across them.

When fighting against Piccolo, the opponent’s not only have to worry about blocking high and low but also about blocking from the front and from the back. And that’s one of Piccolo’s greatest strengths. Being able to switch the side is attacking from with great speed with both his diamond slicer and elbow. It’s hard to know what’s coming next so if you change your strategy constantly during a fight. no one will be able to keep up and you’ll break through the most solid of Defense’s.

It’s also easy for pick to counter a rush down type character. Because of the demon slicer it just shuts all of that down it counters an opponent do be careful because the demon slicer cannot counter low attacks. But for anything else you just use the demon slicer. And you’ve successfully shut down any rush down the attempt. And from a distance you can easily use the homing energy blast just to set something up.

Against beginners they won’t know how to react to a homing energy blast spam. But as you play against better players at Kamehameha or super dash will go right through it. but if you know what the opponent is going to do you can also prepare for a counter-attack. So even though the priority of the homing energy blast is free lo. Yyou can still use it to control the stage and force your enemy to do exactly what you want.

Now this great power does come with a big downside. Which is Piccolo isn’t the best of finishers. He’s not great I using meter and turning it into damage. Because it’s super is well interesting they are not the biggest damage dealers in the game.

So ideally you’ll want to start a combo with Piccolo and just finish it with someone else. But hey that’s why it’s a 3v3 game so you can make up your dream team and Piccolo’s role seems pretty clear to me.

Krillin Combos – Tips & Tricks – DBFZ

Published by:

Hello and welcome to another Dragon Ball FighterZ video. today we have a much-requested character profile for Krillin.

Krillin is a very unique character. He’s a bit tough to describe with a simple sentence. So I really hope that with this post you’ll be able to understand the value and utility he brings to a team. Because he really does bring a lot of utility. And even though when he’s fighting one-on-one he doesn’t look like the strongest character. His team value is something that is just undeniable. But let’s start breaking down his abilities before we even get to his specials.

I want to talk about his key blasts by pressing down into special button.

Krillin shoots a ki blast downwards that launches him into the air. And he can do this again while jumping which gives him almost like a double jump. And at the same time he damages an enemy that’s below him.

But that’s not all that’s unique about his ki blast. He can actually direct them at will by pressing the special button. Krillin shoots the ki blast just like everyone else. But if you press the special button again combined with the direction, you can direct his ki blasts up or down. Making them a little more unpredictable than usual.

Now Krillin is completely open while doing this so it is a dangerous maneuver. And it doesn’t really do a lot of damage but it can be useful in certain situations.

Well, let’s get to his special moves the first one is the Kamehameha with quarter-circle forward then the special button.

But this one behaves a bit differently from Goku’s and Cells coming on huh. Because Krillin can charge this attack and jump while it’s charging. Charging the Kamehameha doesn’t make it deal more damage but the timing alone can throw the opponent off balance.

And even fulham into thinking you’re gonna throw a Kamehameha from the ground or from the air when you decided at the last second to switch things up.

Krillin second special is the solar flare with quarter-circle backward and a special button.

This is a short to medium range stun, that can only be done while on the ground. If you’re too far away from your opponent it doesn’t work at all. And the stun duration is very short, you can’t even follow it up with a super dash afterward. But you can follow it up with an assist attack or with any of curling supers.

Making this not only one of the easiest ways to counter an opponent of the entire game. But also a very punishing attack if you follow it up with a super.

Moving on to Krillin attack specials. First, we’ve got the afterimage strike with quarter-circle forwards and an attack button.

The range will vary depending on whether you press the light medium or heavy tech buttons. The lie detector version has the shortest range.

The heavy attack version has the longest, but the heavy attack version also tracks the enemy position.

Meaning that you can use the medium attack version to switch sides with the opponent if you’re too close. But that’s not all if you hold down the attack button on any of these versions you will actually perform a fake.

Krillin will not strike the enemy, and the afterimage will simply vanish. So if you’re into playing mind games, you’re gonna love this ability.

And I left this special attack for less because it is just very very unique and it’s gonna take a while to explain it. It’s the Senzu bean with quarter circle backward and an attack button.

When Krillin is your active character, he’ll throw a Senzu bean to one of your assist characters and healed them up. You can choose which assist character you want to heal by pressing a different attack button.

The light attack heals the assist at the top and the medium attack button heals the assist at the bottom. If one of your assists is dead, Krillin sends your beam will actually hit the stage wall and bounce back into the field.

At which point Crillon can pick it up himself or if the enemy is aware that this is gonna happen. He might even steal the sensor beam from you.

But you might have noticed that Krillin doesn’t always throw Senzu bean when you perform this motion. Sometimes he throws rocks as well. And it may seem random at first whether he throws a rock or the sensor beam but there is actually a sequence.

And the sequence goes sends a bean followed by three rocks, then another Senzu bean, Then three more rocks and then your third Senzu bean. That’s the last one from there on out it’s nothing but wrong.

However, if you accidentally throw a Senzu bean at a character that’s full health. Or if you throw it at the ground and no one picks it up because it went off-screen. That one does not count you only have three Senzu bean to heal people. But if they don’t he’ll just pretend that Krillin is picking them up and putting them back in his pants.

And as you’re a sister this is also Krillin ability. The rotation works exactly the same. He throws a Sunzu bean then three rocks etc etc etc… But this time it doesn’t throw it directly at your character.

He throws it to the ground close to your character meaning that if the opponent is close by you may very well be giving him free health. It’s dangerous to use Krillin as an assist character sometimes. So be careful when you use it.

And after you spend all three Center beans the assist attack actually changes. Krillin will throw his directive key blasts instead which I guess is way better than the rocks.

Moving on to his super scrilla news once again very unique and interesting. He’s got two supers a level one that can go up to a level five and a level 3 super. His level one is the Destructo disc with quarter circle forward and the right bumper or trigger. And it can only be done from the ground and it will always travel horizontally.

And it can be very devastating. A single destructo disc on its own it’s nothing special. But you can mash buttons to throw up to five destructive disks and deal some serious damage.

Now each this will cost you one bar of meter and this is why this could be a level 5. This is also the ability with the biggest chip damage that I’ve seen in the entire game. Meaning that even if your opponent blocks the 5 shots. It might still be worth spanning the meter just for the chip damage. And since you can cancel from the solar flare into this. And solar flare is such an easy counter to perform. I think you can now understand how devastating this can be.

And finally his level 3 super is the split energy wave with quarter-circle backward and the right bumper or trigger.

You can only do this while on the ground and it starts with an aura Zonta energy wave followed by a key blast shower. Even if the opponent blocks the first one, he can still get hit by the second one.

So it’s an interesting ability because it can damage the opponent’s in two different moments. Though when a player blocks the first energy wave, they usually avoid the key blast shower as well.

And as far as Auto combo 1

This is what happens when you match the light attack button.

And this is what happens when you match the medium attack button: Auto combo 2.

Now because the second auto combo ends with a destructo disc. If you keep mashing you can actually unleash the five destructo disc which probably makes this the most powerful auto combo in the entire game.

And now that we know his abilities here are some general tips on how to use Krillin. Let’s start with the obvious value he brings to a team.

He can heal your teammates with the Senzu bean so make sure you use it. Now, of course, the first sensor beam is easy to use. Because Krillin just throws it immediately but so many players forget about this ability afterward. All you have to do is just keep in mind that you have to call and Krillin for an assist attack once in a while. It’s not hard to find an opening where if curling can throw a rock.

He’s not contributing much to your combo or damage but you’re getting the rock rotation out of the way. So when you need another Senzu bean, Krillin is ready to throw it.

So that would be my first tip you’re gonna have to keep in mind the rotation. You’ll need to know how many rocks you’ve grown since the last Senzu bean at all times during a match. And that just takes a little bit of practice it’s a bit unconventional for sure. but it’s not that hard to get used to it.

And personally, I like to throw the sensor beans to my assist characters. using Krillin as my active character just so the opponent doesn’t surprise me and grab the Senzu bean from the ground instead of my active character,

There are definitely situations where it’s safe to throw it into the stage. But just to be safe as a beginner always have Crillon as your active character and throw it to one of your assists. Then you can swap characters and start throwing rocks with Krillin as your assessed character.

The second awesome thing that Krillin brings to a team is being another great character at finishing combos. At converting meter into damage with his destructo disc. If all five of them hit this super is just as strong as another level 5 supers. And if the enemy blocks them it still deals a ton of chip damage. So Krillin becomes a relatively safe way to spend your meter.

But what about when you don’t have the meter and you don’t need to heal your allies. what does Krillin bring to your team well?

He’s not an easy guy to play, I’ll tell you that much. He’s a tricky kind of character.he can fake the opponent a lot using the afterimage strike. Not only because you can actually fake the opponent’s using this move. But because of the different ranges as well you can sometimes just swap sides using the special attack.

If you read your opponent well they will feel completely powerless. And I guess the same could be said for the directive ki blast and the Kamehameha. Which you can hold for a bit or just shoot it right away or jump and throw it or just jump and fall back down to the ground and throw it.

So it’s that type of character it’s definitely not the friendliest character for beginners. Because you’ll need to get in the mind of your opponent. And be able to read his behavior and know what he’s gonna do next. But it does bring a lot of value to a team by being so unique.

So if you’re at the beginner level and you want to start using Krillin, just use him as your Senzu bean dispenser. As well as the guy you go to spend the meter on his destructo disc. Because that just deals so much damage.

Thank you for reading our character profile for Krillin and I’ll see you guys next time boy.
