PASBR Promising Combo Fragments
For those you interested in making elaborate month-three combovids for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, here’s a list of naunaces that may be worth exploring.
Platform Ledge Sweep
The reaction type caused by Kratos’ D+Square actually animates beyond the time it takes to reach the ground. Sweeping an opponent off a platform ledge gives you a few extra frames to juggle them before they air tech. I’m sure someone can find a clever use for this bit of minutia!
Post-Stagger Meaty Setups
Heavy stagger reactions tend to force opponents low to the ground – stagger kneel (caused by Sweet Tooth’s j.Square) and stagger drop (caused by Sir Daniel’s j.F+Square). Therefore both can serve as convenient mid-combo meaty setups for high attacks and projectiles.
Ceiling Bounce Followups
On stages with solid ceilings such as Dojo and Invasion, it’s possible to launch an opponent into a sort of ceiling splat reaction, providing an added followup opportunity as they peel off the ceiling. Certain characters can even add extra eject attacks to their air combos.
Since multi-victim combos yield diminishing returns for AP accrual, it takes a few extra hits for additional opponents to reach the infinite avoidance limit. As such, it’s possible to perform longer combos against secondary and tertiary victims.
Hedgehog Grenade Counter / Reflect Setups
Once thrown, the Hedgehog Grenade remains dormant as a proximity mine until an opponent moves within three meters. Obviously it works great as a combo extender, but it also serves as the perfect trigger for a mid-combo counter after being planted by the opponent.
Freeze Missile Combos
The Freeze Missile is my favorite combo item in Battle Royale. Upon impact, it slows victims down to 25% speed for nearly 10 seconds, including all their defensive and hit stun states. Why hasn’t anyone made a Freeze Missile combo video yet?
Killer Bees Combos
The Killer Bees are my second-favorite combo item in the game. They fire auto-targeted projectiles at the nearest opponent, with a cooldown of 0.5 seconds – perfect for extending chain combos. Why hasn’t anyone made a Killer Bees combo video yet?
I hope this helps stir up some new ideas. I’m looking forward to seeing even more innovative combovids from the PASBR community when the new DLC characters become available!
