View Full Version : I think I figured out the guard indicator glitch from a ZA?

For the characters that have fast zone attack, ones I see most are orochi and warden.

During which ever guard stance you are on, plink your light attack and heavy attack, it will make you do a ZA. If you play fighting games like street fighter, you know what plinking is.

I was on practice mode. Doing some "techs" and when I plink light and heavy attack, my character seem to do a light attack animation on startup then into a ZA. I'm doing this on a orochi.

I've also heard people saying that the guard indicator flashes left then right, which is also true.

I don't know, what do you guys think?

It's not really p-linking.

The two ZA buttons don't have to be pressed together, this is to allow for human error and that, on most controllers, the trigger will fire slightly later due to the degrees of sensitivity. This creates a window that is large enough for one attack to start and show the attack indicator, but then be overridden and turned into a ZA when the second is pressed.
