Air Dash Stab cancel into the Finisher
« on: June 28, 2016, 04:46:24 AM »
I am not sure if this is a glitch or an intentional thing but if the enemy is low enough to be off'd by a Finisher while you do the Air Dash Stab, pressing Stab again when you are in range before the attack lands cancels it out completely into the finisher and it's animation.

I made a video showcasing this along with the inputs I did during the sequence.

  • When the Eneny is low enough to be finished off with the Finisher (Pushing Y near the Enemy). Jump in the air and perform the Dash Stab attack
  • Just before you land the attack on the target, hit Stab again, the timing window seems to be narrow

As shown, I was able to do this 2/3 times but with proper timing it should be able to be done 100% of the time in the right hands.

If there was an award for excellence in bug reporting, I'd nominate you in a heartbeat.
Yes, with proper timing you can use Air Dash Stab just as a mobility part of a finisher combo.
In fact if the situation allows for it, always do a finisher to gain extra energy.
