I'm the type of person that enjoys picking a low tier character and seeing how far I can go with them when competing against the usual high tier characters that other will stick with in just about any game - not just fighters. Once I set my eyes on a character that I like, I get the mindset that "I'm playing that character, no matter what" and most of the time that thought works out for me in the end. I'm also a VERY hardcore Resident Evil fan and have been ever since the original game. Chris Redfield has always been my personal favorite character in the Resident Evil series. If you've played Resident Evil 5 then you might know me for my FAQ for the full game or you might know me from my RE5 Mercs Chris gameplay from youtube. Anyway, this is my first attempt at an FAQ for a fighting game, so hopefully this will come across as a good first attempt. As always, you can email me at my email address berserker_kev(@)yahoo(dot)com if you have an questions, suggestions or comments. - Berserker (BK) ___ / _ \ / /_)/ / ___/ ____________ \/ R O F I L E \___________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --> REAL NAME - - - Chris Redfield --> OCCUPATION - - - BSAA Operative --> ABILITIES - - - Has plenty of experience with all types of weapons.

He has several projectile special moves that can easily pin an opponent down or keep an opponent at a distance from him. Your main goal with Chris is to keep an opponent at long distance or mid range and inflict block damage. Once the opponent comes to you, find an opening and an attack to get them at a distance again then go back to playing keep away. Chris' Gun Fire M and Gun Fire H (both air and ground) inflict quite a bit of block damage to an opponent that guards from a distance. His Grenade Toss H is good for setting up a wall of flame that will keep an opponent at a distance or trap an opponent so that Chris can take further block damage from the opponent with Gun Fire M or H and/or a projectile assist. The Grenade Toss L is his main source of anti-air defense without an anti-air assist. Chris is not an offensive character that is good for rushing at an opponent with. He is best played defensively until an opening is found. His best setups for attacking are through Air Gun Fire H, Grenade Toss L (juggle afterwards) or a crouching M. After hitting an opponent, he can easily juggle them in the air with a standing H or stun rod attack then work the opponent into a combo or knock them up and start an air combo. Juggling with wall and ground bouncing plays a big role in playing as Chris. His Gun Fire H, both the ground (wall bounce) and air (ground bounce), can set an opponent up for juggling. The Gun Fire H and Grenade Launcher are very good at beating an opponent's projectiles most of the time - both the main character and assists projectiles. Overall, Chris takes quite a bit of damage from an opponent with all of his moves once he opens an opponent up to attacks. His Grenade Launcher hyper combo is one of the most damaging level 1 hyper combos in the game and he can set up his level 3 satellite laser with just a simple hit with a Gun Fire H or cancel into the move after a Combination Punch H. Chris is also the only character in the game that can duck under projectiles, which is really good for beam characters that like to spam (Iron Man). By using his Prone Position (down, down H), he can duck right under normal projectiles and even standing beam hyper combos. While in prone, he can fire low to make an opponent come to him. Chris is also a great super meter builder! He adds quite a bit to the super gauge through the constant long distance spamming of his moves. A Chris player is likely to hit an opponent from a distance quite often, and all of those attacks will help to increase his super gauge quite fast. Chris can be looked at as a low tier character, but with enough dedication, he can excel through finding an opening and exploiting it with his high damage rate per attack. ___ / __\ / / / /___ ______________ \____/ O N T R O L S \_________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ========================== Basic Controls Per Console ========================== --> Playstation 3 (PS3) --> Xbox 360 (X360) [] - L.

Out of all of Chris' basic attacks, this move lacks the most range. It cannot hit a ducking opponent no matter how close Chris is. This is not a good move to perform after a jumping attack since, if the opponent is ducking, then Chris will not be able to hit the opponent afterwards. It would be best to stick with Chris' crouching L instead of using his standing L. The only real benefit to this attack is that its quick and Chris does hit higher when compared to his other basic standing attacks. The main time that you'll want to use this is to juggle after a down + H on a grounded opponent after a throw while the opponent is in the corner. ********** Standing M ********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 65000 | 8 | 3 | 18 | -3 | -4 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Chris performs a quick hook to the area in front of him. This move has more range than the standing L and also it will hit a ducking opponent from close range. If you choose to hit an opponent with a standing attack after a jumping attack, it would be best to use Chris' standing M instead of his standing L. He can easily chain into a standing H and stun rod then finish with another attack afterwards. Just completely avoid using a standing L after a jumping attack and chain straight into Chris' standing M or a crouching L followed by a crouching M for the best results with linking attacks after a jumping attack. ********** Standing H ********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 80000 | 10 | 3 | 21 | -1 | -2 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Chris steps forward with a straight kick. If you've played Resident Evil 5 then this is similar to his kick from the back of a Majini after an arm stun, though the one in RE5 is more "intense". Chris' standing H is a good attack to juggle an opponent with after any type of bounce (both wall bounce and ground bounce). Chris can chain into his stun rod (Forward + H) directly after this attack then finish the combination with any of his special attacks or an S knock up. The standing H will hit a ducking opponent from a greater distance when compared to Chris' standing M also. This move is not a good poke however. It should really only be used in combos or for juggles. ********** Standing S ********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 80000 | 9 | 4 | 27 | -- | -9 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Chris performs a quick uppercut. This move is Chris' knock up attack to start an air combo. Hit an opponent with this then leap into the air to follow them and perform a combination of Chris' jumping attacks for an air combo. This move can also be used well as anti-air attack if the opponent is left wide open while above Chris. Since Chris will be juggling his opponent quite a bit with his other attacks, a standing S is a great choice for an easy finisher to a ground combo so Chris can take the opponent into the air for an air combo. Chris can chain into an S attack from any of his basic attacks that don't involve a gun. One of the best times to perform an S attack is directly after a stun rod (forward + H) attack. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= CROUCHING BASIC ATTACKS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= *********** Crouching L *********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | L | 45000 | 6 | 3 | 13 | -3 | -4 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Chris kneels down and kicks outward from close. A crouching L is a good starter for many of Chris' combos from close range. It's really only best at close range only however. Chris' crouching M is much better for the majority of combos that Chris will land against an opponent. His crouching L is quicker than a crouching M, but the crouching L lacks range. *********** Crouching M *********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 80000 | 8 | 3 | 18 | -3 | -4 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' While crouching, Chris steps forward with one knee and performs a slash with his machete. This is by far the best combo starter for the majority of Chris' combos. It has good range and overall speed and it can hit an opponent from the air which can lead to a full juggle with Chris' main combo. The crouching M is Chris' best poke attack from mid range when attempting to set up an attack combination. This attack can hit an opponent that is in the air and it has good overall range for a mid range opponent. Just land a single crouching M and Chris can chain into a standing H followed by a stun rod attack (Forward + H) then perform either an S knock up or one of his other attacks. *********** Crouching H *********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 90000 | 17 | 2 | 19 | +2 | +1 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. .-----. | CHIP DAMAGE | | OTG | '-------------' '-----' Chris points toward the ground in front of him with his handgun and fires a shot while crouching. This move takes block damage if the opponent blocks the shot and it can knock an opponent off the ground after any type of knockdown that leaves them on the ground for a while. Since this move is a low attack, it must also be guarded low or it will hit! If Chris hits any of his grenades from a grenade toss M or H with this gunshot, that grenade will instantly detonate. Chris can follow up his air and ground throw with a crouching H. In a corner, he can quickly hit an opponent with a standing L following the crouching H. The crouching H is NOT cancelable, but with the right timing, a standing L or crouching L can hit an opponent right afterwards then a player can chain into Chris full combo - crouching L, crouching M, standing H, stun rod, etc. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= AERIAL BASIC ATTACKS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= ********* Jumping L ********* .---------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | | | | | | | +=============================================+ | 1 | 50000 | 5 | 5 | 19 | '---------------------------------------------' Chris extends his shoulder forward and hits the opponent with his elbow. This jumping attack lacks the most range out of all of Chris' jumping attacks. It can be good for close range hits from the air, but it's hard to chain other attacks with this attack once Chris is on the ground. ********* Jumping M ********* .---------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | | | | | | | +=============================================+ | 1 | 70000 | 8 | 3 | 27 | '---------------------------------------------' Chris kicks forward with one of his legs while in the air. Chris' foot is extended slightly upwards directly in front of him while kicking so it doesn't hit below him that well. This move seems as if it would hit much better than what it does while jumping into an opponent but it really doesn't hit any better than Chris' jumping L. Both jumping attacks have around the same attack range when jumping in. Chris' jumping M is best used for the startup of his air combos. It juggles an opponent very well in the air for up to two times before chaining into a jumping H attack. ********* Jumping H ********* .---------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | | | | | | | +=============================================+ | 1 | 90000 | 10 | 3 | 26 | '---------------------------------------------' Chris swings forward with his machete while in the air. This attack is Chris' best jumping attack for starting a combo on an opponent from mid-range. The machete swing has good distance and its very easy to chain into a standing M or crouching L and crouching M right after Chris lands this attack on an opponent. From mid range, Chris' jumping H is the best way to hit an opponent and start a ground combo on them. It can be used just as well for close range as well. ********* Jumping S ********* .---------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | | | | | | | +=============================================+ | 1 | 85000 | 11 | 3 | 32 | '---------------------------------------------' Chris hits an opponent over the head with both of his fists while in the air. The jumping S is best used for a close range air attack to set up a ground combo. Chris covers the area below him very well for this attack, so it is also easy to cross up an opponent with the jumping S while leaping over their head. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= GROUND COMMAND ATTACKS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= *********** Forward + M *********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 90000 | 15 | 4 | 22 | -3 | -4 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. .-----. | CHIP DAMAGE | | OTG | '-------------' '-----' Chris points his handgun forward and fires a shot. The gun shot covers just a little over half the screen and takes block damage when guarded. Like Chris' crouching H gunshot, this shot can hit a grounded opponent from a hard knockdown. It can also be used to make Chris' grenade toss M and H instantly detonate if he hits the grenade with the gunfire. This can be a good move for quick chip damage on an opponent that Chris is trying to keep away. Since Chris will have more recovery animation from this attack, it would be best to make use of his down + H gunshot from the air for zoning however. *********** Forward + H *********** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 90000 | 15 | 3 | 25 | -5 | -6 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. | CHIP DAMAGE | '-------------' Chris takes out his stun rod and quickly steps forward and swings the stun rod. A stun rod hit takes block damage when an opponent guards against it. This attack is the bread and butter of easily juggling an opponent with Chris. After any type of ground bounce or wall bounce, a player can easily juggle an opponent with a stun rod attack then chain into an S knock up or many of Chris' special attacks. Since Chris steps forward and this move has some good range when he does so, it's quite easy to hit an opponent with this attack and keep them in the air while Chris is at a distance. The move can be used as a poke for setting up an attack from the ground also, but Chris' crouching M is still safer since it has less recovery. Directly after a grenade toss L hits an opponent that jumps into Chris, a player can juggle that opponent in the air with a quick stun rod hit followed a knock up - this is just one example of the stun rod's many juggle setups. ******** Back + H ******** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 110000 | 20 | 17 | 22 | 0 | -1 | | | - | | | | | | | | 166800 | | | | | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. | CHIP DAMAGE | '-------------' Chris equips a flamethrower and spews flames forward from the gun. The flamethrower takes some extreme block damage when an opponent guards against it. It literally takes off the same amount of damage whether it hits or is guarded against. The flamethrower is good for knocking an opponent out of the air from mid range and it can also be used to juggle after a few of Chris' moves (such as in a corner after a grenade launcher hyper combo). When an opponent is very weak, this move can be used to finish them off with its extreme chip damage. It's not good to spam this move however since Chris is left wide open to attack when he is in his flamethrower pose and shortly after the move ends. Some characters (X-23) can duck right under this move also. SPECIAL NOTE: Once again, smaller characters can duck under Chris' flamethrower. Be sure to keep this in mind! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= AIR COMMAND ATTACKS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= ***************** Down + H (in air) ***************** .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 90000 | 15 | -- | until | -- | -- | | | | | | standing | | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. .-----. | CHIP DAMAGE | | OTG | '-------------' '-----' Chris fires downward with his handgun while in the air. Like Chris' other gun attacks, this attack will take block damage if an opponent guards against it. Chris can easily sneak this move into any type of normal jump to keep distance between himself and his opponent. This move is much safer than Chris' other handgun attacks and Chris can easily perform it a few times in a row during his jumps and get away with it easier thanks to how quick it is. Chris' air handgun attack is good to mix in with his usual zoning projectiles such as his grenade tosses and his gun fire special moves. Just like all other gun attacks, this attack will detonate grenades from a distance. This attack actually works quite well for detonating his grenade tosses since it hits at right about the maximum distance that each one will go when thrown if Chris jumps straight up and shoots. ___ / __\ / / / /___ _______________________________ \____/ R O S S O V E R A S S I S T S \________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************** ALPHA / Combination Punch H *************************** Type: Direct Direction: Front Crossover Combination Hyper Combo: Sweep Combo .---------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Recovery | | | | | | (assist) | (partner) | +=========================================================+ | 2 | 112000 | 34 | 2(16)2 | 134 | 104 | '---------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .----------------. .-----. | HARD KNOCKDOWN | | OTG | '----------------' '-----' For the Alpha assist, Chris will perform his Combination Punch H. If it hits, it will result in a hard knockdown which can lead to the opponent being hit off the ground with a hyper combo or special move that hits OTG. ***************** BETA / Gun Fire M ***************** Type: Shot Direction: Front Crossover Combination Hyper Combo: Grenade Launcher .---------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Recovery | | | | | | (assist) | (partner) | +=========================================================+ | 8 | 125000 | 49 | -- | 114 | 84 | '---------------------------------------------------------' For the Beta assist, Chris will step out and perform his Gun Fire M. This assist is his best assist out of the three for most teams. It's a real good assist to pin down an opponent to help out a dasher character such as Wolverine or X-23. The assist can also add more to the chip damage of a beam character and overall just provide projectile cover. ********************** GAMMA / Grenade Toss L ********************** Type: Shot Direction: Downward Crossover Combination Hyper Combo: Grenade Launcher .---------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Recovery | | | | | | (assist) | (partner) | +=========================================================+ | 1 | 117000 | 41 | -- | 116 | 86 | '---------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .--------------------. | SPINNING KNOCKDOWN | '--------------------' For the Gamma assist, Chris will step beside the partner character and perform his Grenade Toss L. This can be useful for quick anti-air cover for a character. Since Chris must hop out then place the explosive, this action will leave him open to counter attacks if the other character is not already attacking the opponent. __ / _\ \ \ _\ \ _______________________ \__/ P E C I A L M O V E S \__________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************* Combination Punch L ******************* Command: D, DB, B + L / 2, 1, 4 + L .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 2 | 104000 | 10 | 2(15)3 | 21 | -1 | -2 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' ********* Body Blow ********* Command: L (during Combination Punch L) .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 50000 | 12 | 3 | 26 | -3 | -4 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' ********** Heavy Blow ********** Command: M (during Body Blow) .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 60000 | 13 | 3 | 30 | -5 | -6 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' ****** Payoff ****** Command: H (during Heavy Blow) .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 3 | | 15 | 3(18)3 | 21 | -- | -3 | | | | | (17)4 | | | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. | WALL BOUNCE | <-- For Payoff final hit '-------------' Chris steps forward with two quick punches. By tapping the L, M, and H buttons with precise timing, he will perform follow up attacks for a full 7 hit combination of punches that will end with a straight punch that bounces the opponent into the wall. He yells "One, Two, Body Check, Here's Another, Eat this, You're finished!" for the full sequence, though some of the phrases will be cancelled during the full combination. The timing of the additional hits is as follows. --> Body Blow Tap the L button right as the second punch hits or directly after Chris yells "two". Chris will not fully finish saying "two" if the Body Blow is inputted correctly. --> Heavy Blow Tap the M button as the third punch (body blow) hits the opponent. Chris will not fully finish saying "Body Check" if the Heavy Blow is inputted correctly. --> Payoff Tap the H button directly after tapping the M button. The H press must be timed the moment the Heavy Blow hit connects with the opponent. If you here Chris yell "Here's another" then Chris has failed to get the full combination out. Chris will not yell out the phrase from the Heavy Blow portion of the attack if the Payoff is inputted successfully. This portion of the combination is the easiest to miss. If you are missing it then you're most likely not pressing H fast enough following the M press. Randomly tapping L, M and H during Combination Punch L will sometimes help out in getting the full combination out, but the H press at the end is very strict in its timing. If you tap the buttons, you're most likely just to get out the Body Blow and Heavy Blow and miss the Payoff. As already mentioned, Chris will perform a straight punch that will bounce an opponent into the wall at the other side of the screen after the Payoff. If Chris has the opponent in the corner, he can juggle with additional basic attacks such as an H into a stun rod or a simple S press or even the flamethrower. From a distance, Chris can shoot the opponent with Gun Fire M or Gun Fire H while the opponent falls. Even though the Payoff portion does wall bounce, the opponent will immediately recover once hitting the ground after the straight punch. A player can juggle an opponent after the wall bounce by hitting the opponent with a Gun Fire H after the Payoff. If Chris has the opponent in a corner, he can juggle with a flamethrower, S or stun rod attack also. It's very easy to mess up on the additional hits of Combination Punch L and leave Chris open in the process and also if the opponent blocks the full combination, Chris will be left wide open to a counterattack during his recovery. The full combo does take off a good bit of block damage so the opponent is likely to push Chris off with advance guarding however. Combination Punch L can be cancelled into a hyper combo at any time once it is started. Chris can cancel into a grenade launcher hyper combo and connect it all if the cancel is done immediately after the heavy blow portion of the attack. ******************* Combination Punch M ******************* Command: D, DB, B + M / 2, 1, 4 + M .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 2 | 122000 | 10 | 2(24)3 | 22 | -- | -3 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' ************ Magnum Combo ************ Command: H (during Combination Punch M) .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 150000 | 22 | -- | 34 | -- | -12 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. | WALL BOUNCE | <-- For Magnum Combo final hit '-------------' Chris steps forward with a punch then performs a straight punch forward. The straight punch is the exact same hit that Chris performs at the end of the Payoff in Combination Punch L, but it will not wall bounce by itself. Chris can perform an additional magnum shot after the straight punch to wall bunch the opponent. --> Magnum Combo Press the H button just a bit after the straight punch hits the opponent. Press it right after Chris yells "two". The timing is tricky at first, but it's not that hard to get the hang of the magnum shot once you see the precise time to hit H. Tapping the H button from the get go really does no good here - you'll just get the magnum shot with luck sometimes. Tapping the H button at about the right time to perform this attack can help at times, but nothing beats knowing the exact timing. If you press the H button too late after the second punch, Chris will sometimes miss with the magnum shot. The Magnum Combo input will always be needed to follow up this special move sequence with any type of juggle after the second punch. Just like after any Gun Fire H, Chris can cancel the magnum shot into his level 3 Linear Launcher. Just like with Combination Punch L, Chris can cancel any portion of Combination Punch M into a hyper combo. One really good thing about hyper combo canceling with this combination punch is that the delay in the second punch makes it very easy. Since the opponent will remain stunned after the first hit, Chris can easily cancel into a Grenade Launcher or Sweep Combo hyper combo and have it all connect after the first punch. ******************* Combination Punch H ******************* Command: D, DB, B + H / 2, 1, 4 + H .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 2 | 131000 | 10 | 2(16)2 | 41 | -- | -20 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .----------------. | HARD KNOCKDOWN | '----------------' Chris steps in with a punch followed by a backhand with the same arm. This is the only Combination Punch sequence without any type of extra button taps that can follow the two punches. Chris will only perform two hits for this sequence. The best part about Combination Punch H is that it knocks the opponent to the ground for a hard knockdown. Chris can follow up Combination Punch H with any of his handgun shots or his level 3 linear launcher. Like all the other Combination Punches, H can be cancelled into a hyper combo also. The timing is a bit harder since the move is only two hits and they are both quick however. ************** Grenade Toss L ************** Command: F, D, DF + L / 6, 2, 3 + L .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 130000 | 17 | -- | 28 | -- | -7 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .--------------------. | SPINNING KNOCKDOWN | '--------------------' Chris yells "Suck it" then lays down a proximity bomb in front of him. The proximity bomb will explode if the opponent steps or jumps into it. The opponent will be knocked into the air a bit then will recover once hitting the ground. Chris can also detonate the proximity bomb himself by hitting it with a crouching L or any of his handgun attacks. Grenade Toss L is Chris' main source of anti-air defense when he doesn't have a good assist that will cover him. The proximity bomb will only cover the area directly in front of Chris however. If an opponent gets hit by the bomb while jumping into Chris, the opponent can be juggled with a stun rod attack followed by additional juggle hits such as an S knock up. ************** Grenade Toss M ************** Command: F, D, DF + M / 6, 2, 3 + M .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 150000 | 20 | -- | 25 | -- | -- | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .--------------------. | SPINNING KNOCKDOWN | '--------------------' Chris yells "Suck on this" and tosses a green hand grenade toward his opponent. The grenade will explode on the third bounce and hit the opponent once and knock them down. The opponent will instantly recover after hitting the ground. Like with grenade toss L, the opponent will be knocked into the air for a bit, so it is possible to juggle with a stun rod hit from close range. Out of Grenade Toss M and Grenade Toss H, Grenade Toss M is thrown just a bit faster, but it doesn't go as far as Grenade Toss H. Chris can use his handgun shots to make a grenade explode faster by shooting it. One good way to detonate a hand grenade is through Chris' jumping handgun shot (down + H in the air) since it will hit the grenade directly after tossing it if Chris jumps straight up and performs the shot. A Prone Position handgun shot is another really good way to hit a grenade easily. ************** Grenade Toss H ************** Command: F, D, DF + H / 6, 2, 3 + H .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1+5 | 130000 | 25 | -- | 26 | -- | -- | | | +61300 | | | | | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .--------------------. | SPINNING KNOCKDOWN | <-- During explosive hit (first hit) '--------------------' Chris yells "Fire in the hole" and tosses a red incendiary grenade toward his opponent. The grenade will explode after the fifth bounce and will make a small fire on the ground. If the opponent is hit by the explosion, the opponent will fly into the air and will most likely land on the fire and be juggled by it. The fire will not often juggle for all hits unless multiple incendiaries are thrown. The fire will remain on the ground for about three second. Just like the other grenades, the incendiary grenade can be detonated earlier by shooting it. Chris' air handgun (down + H) and his Prone Position handgun shots will easily detonate a grenade with little effort. One good way to detonate Grenade Toss H early is by quickly shooting with Gun Fire M. The flame will help to shield Chris from a jumping opponent from mid range. ********** Gun Fire L ********** Command: D, DF, F + L / 2, 3, 6 + L .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 10 | 133400 | 25 | -- | 30 | +7 | +6 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .---------------. .------------. | AIR OR GROUND | | LARGE STUN | '---------------' '------------' Chris takes out his Ithaca shotgun and fires a shot forward. This move can be done on the ground or in the air. The spread of the blast covers about 50% of the area in front of Chris. From close range, the spread will hit a total of 10 times. From the air, this shot has good priority over most other attacks. The timing for doing this move properly during a normal jump can be tricky however since it must be done at the precise peak of a jump or Chris will simply take out the shotgun and never shoot before he lands. Once the shotgun blast hits an opponent, the stun that takes place will last long enough for Chris to follow it up with close range attacks and hyper combos. If any portion of the shotgun blast hits the opponent from any range, a player can immediately cancel into the grenade launcher hyper combo to link it because of the lengthy stun. On the flip side, since this move already hits quite a few times, the damage rate will decrease significantly to where most other attacks will not take off much at all. Basically, a full shot + grenade launcher hyper combo will take off about 25% less than hitting an opponent with only the grenade launcher hyper combo portion. ********** Gun Fire M ********** Command: D, DF, F + M / 2, 3, 6 + M .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 8 | 120900 | 25 | 13 | 22 | +1 | 0 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .---------------. .-----. | AIR OR GROUND | | OTG | <-- Air version only '---------------' '-----' Chris takes out his machine gun and yells "Open fire" then shoots forward with an 8 hit blast of bullets. The machine gun can be shot in the air or on the ground. This move does some decent block damage and can help to pin an opponent down from long range when Chris starts tossing grenades. Unlike the Gun Fire H, this move will hit a ducking opponent and unlike the Gun Fire L, this move hits full screen. The air version of this move does some good damage to an opponent if the blast hits directly from the air. The blast causes a rain of bullets on the opponent as Chris falls, so the opponent is less likely to receive full damage from this move when compared to Chris' other air Gun Fires. Gun Fire M is also a good way to set off grenades after tossing them with Grenade Toss M or Grenade Toss H. Perform a Gun Fire M immediately after tossing either of the grenades and Chris will shoot them as they fall. ********** Gun Fire H ********** Command: D, DF, F + H / 2, 3, 6 + H .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 150000 | 22 | -- | 34 | -- | -12 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .---------------. | AIR OR GROUND | '---------------' .-------------. .---------------. | WALL BOUNCE | <-- Ground version | GROUND BOUNCE | <-- Air version '-------------' '---------------' Chris takes out his S&W M29 Magnum and aims the gun forward with both hands then shouts "Eat lead" and fires a shot. Like the other Gun Fire's this move can be done in the air or on the ground. Both versions of the attack are equally just as useful. Gun Fire H is by far Chris' most useful projectile. It takes some really good damage per hit and it's just a single shot. The magnum shot will cause an instant wall bounce on the opponent when it hits so Chris can hit the opponent with any of his handgun shots or cancel the Gun Fire H into his level 3 Satellite Laser. The ground version of Gun Fire H will cause a wall bounce and the air version will cause a ground bounce. This gunshot can actually be chained together with the air and ground version. A player can hit an opponent with jumping Gun Fire H to bounce them on the ground then immediately hit the opponent with a ground Gun Fire H after landing to wall bounce the opponent. After the wall bounce, a player can hit the opponent with another jumping Gun Fire H to get a three hit combo that is quite damaging! Gun Fire H will beat many other projectiles that it is shot against. Gun Fire H will pierce through an opponent and hit an assist whether the opponent is blocking or not. The move can actually be used to target weak assists if they are expected or if an opponent ever tries to spam them from long distance. The main flaw with this Gun Fire is that Chris will only hit high with each ground shot, so an opponent can duck the attack. The air version of this attack can be just as deadly. The air version is actually better than the ground version since it can hit an opponent more precisely. Air Gun Fire H can knock an opponent off the ground after a knockdown or wall bounce and set them up for a stun rod hit into a juggle sequence. Air Gun Fire H is actually Chris' best air move overall. ************** Prone Position ************** Command: D, D + H / 2, 2 + H .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | N/A | -- | 27 | -- | -- | -- | -- | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' ********** Prone Shot ********** Command: H (during Prone Position) .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 1 | 90000 | -- | -- | -- | -- | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-------------. | CHIP DAMAGE | <-- Prone Shot '-------------' Chris will lie face down on the ground and look up then point his handgun toward his opponent when he goes prone. While in prone stance, many projectiles and even supers will pass right over Chris' head. Chris can fire off shots from his handgun by tapping the H button while he is prone. Each shot will take block damage if guarded against. Chris can also call out assist while in prone position. To cancel prone position tap or hold up. Prone Position is great defense against players that try to spam him with projectiles from a distance. A player can simply enter prone position then fire Chris' handgun at the opponent to make the other player come to him. The bad part about prone status is that Chris is wide open to any attack that will hit him while in this stance - mainly air attacks. He cannot guard while in prone position. Chris can call out assist while in Prone Position. A beam assist or a projectile assist can help to back him while Chris is on the ground and then he can shoot with handgun to protect the assist. /\ /\ / /_/ / / __ / _____________________ \/ /_/ Y P E R C O M B O S \_________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **************** Grenade Launcher **************** Command: D, DF, F + ATK / 2, 3, 6 + ATK .----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +======================================================================+ | 4 | 343700 | 15+4 | 111 | 36 | -- | -- | '----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .--------------------. | SPINNING KNOCKDOWN | '--------------------' Chris takes out his grenade launcher and yells out "Loading grenade, Open fire" right before he starts shooting grenade rounds. Chris will shoot a total of four grenade rounds. He will shoot a nitrogen directly in front of him then shoot an explosive round up into the air afterwards. After shooting the explosive round, he will shoot a flame round and an electric round. For a level 1 hyper combo, this hyper combo is quite damaging if the full combination of grenade rounds all hit. They usually take around 35% health per character. If the nitrogen rounds hits a standing opponent, the rest of the grenade rounds will be a guaranteed hit. The nitrogen round will trap any opponent that is on the ground in a block of ice whether it be main player or assist. The nitrogen round must hit a standing opponent that is on the ground in order to trap though. If the nitrogen round hits a character that is in the air, it will not trap the character - the character will simply fall and recover while Chris continues shooting and will have the option to block the rest of the grenade rounds. So long as the nitrogen encases a character in ice, the rest of the grenade rounds will hit. This hyper combo can beat most normal projectiles in the game if the opponent performs a normal projectile move at the same time. The explosive round that Chris shoots up into the air will often hit an opponent that tries to counter during the grenade launcher shots, but there are ways to overcome this, such as performing a hyper combo that makes the opponent invincible for a few frames - such as Spencer's Bionic Lancer. This hyper combo can be performed to simply take away block damage, but it's risky on some characters since some can counter the grenades with their own hyper combo. So long as Chris shoots the explosive round into the air, the explosive round will counter any normal move and many hyper combos however. Since the final hit causes the opponent to spin before falling to the ground, a player can juggle the opponent with extra hits. From long range, a player can shoot the opponent with a Gun Fire H and from close range (corner), the usual juggle with a stun rod or standing S can be done. *********** Sweep Combo *********** Command: F, DF, F + ATK / 6, 2, 3 + ATK .-------------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +=========================================================================+ | 22 | 290400 | 10+2 | 4(10)3 | 53 | -- | -- | | | | | (27)8(27) | | | | | | | | 17(20)7 | | | | | | | | (43)20 | | | | '-------------------------------------------------------------------------' Chris slashes with his knife, swings forward with his stun rod, fires a quick shot of his Ithaca shotgun, fires with his machine gun, shoots with his M29 magnum then fires his rocket launcher at his opponent. The character is juggled throughout the entire combination of attacks. A character can be juggled in the air after a wall bounce or spinning knockdown with this hyper combo from close range so long as either of the first two hits connect (machete or stun rod). If this super is performed after a ground bounce, the stun rod hit will not bounce the opponent high enough and the rest of the hits will not connect. Chris' Sweep Combo is his easiest hyper combo to cancel into from many of his moves. A player can combo into a Grenade Toss L then perform a sweep combo as the opponent flies back from the proximity bomb explosion and the full hyper combo will connect. *************** Satellite Laser *************** Command: D, DB, B + ATK / 2, 1, 4 + ATK .-----------------------------------------------------------------------. | Hits | Damage | Startup | Active | Recovery | Advantage | Advantage | | | | | | | on Hit | if Guarded | +=======================================================================+ | 27 | 445500 | 35+1 | 37 | 43 | -- | -- | | | | (Lock On | | | | | | | | 14) | | | | | '-----------------------------------------------------------------------' Special Properties: .-----. | OTG | '-----' Chris takes out a satellite laser gun and aims at his opponent. A targeting cursor will appear on the screen and a player will have to tap the H button to fire the launcher. The opponent can be juggled with three shots form the laser so long as Chris hits them fast enough. Each of the three laser hits will knock the opponent to the ground. The cursor of the laser gun will fall right on Chris if the opponent is on the ground. If the opponent is in the air, the cursor will lock on to the opponent once it appears. Here is a rundown of the way to control the cursor's positioning after performing the hyper combo: --> Hold L Cursor appears in front of Chris (near him) --> Hold M Cursor appears mid-screen (middle of the screen) --> Hold H Cursor appears at the other end of the screen away from Chris (far side of screen) --> Do nothing and opponent on ground Cursor appears on Chris --> Opponent is in the air Cursor appears right where the opponent is at while they are in the air when the hyper combo was performed. Since this is a level 3 hyper combo, it is not subject to damage scaling, which means that all of its hits will not be reduced in damage when it is added to a combo. Since the satellite laser will hit a grounded opponent, this move can be cancelled into after a ground Gun Fire H or a Combination Punch H in order to juggle an opponent afterwards. Both of the attacks leave an opponent on the ground for a while, so Chris can juggle the opponent with laser shots. Chris is invincible during the opening frames of the satellite laser hyper combo. While he takes out the laser cannon up to the point until the cursor appears on the screen, a player cannot hit him with most attacks. Knowing this can really pay off if you have an opponent that is right on top of your Chris and the opponent will NOT back off. A player could perform the satellite laser hyper combo then hit any extremely aggressive opponent or assist that happens to be on the screen. Chris can be grabbed with any type of grab hyper combo during the startup of his satellite laser however. Hyper combo such as Haggar's level 3 grab and Tron's grab will grab him even during the satellite laser startup. =============================================================================== _______ [CS00] |_____ | _____| | |_____ | _____| | |_______| C O M B O S & S T R A T E G I E S =============================================================================== ___ / __\ / / / /___ __________ \____/ O M B O S \_____________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: This combo section is still very much a work in progress at the moment. *********************************** NORMAL COMBOS WITHOUT A HYPER COMBO *********************************** 01) Air Gun Fire H, Gun Fire H, Air Gun Fire H If the opponent is hit with an Air Gun Fire H as Chris is about to hit the ground, he can juggle them with a ground Gun Fire H to wall bounce the opponent then hit the opponent with one final Air Gun Fire H or any other of his attacks that can hit off the ground, such as Forward + M, Down + M, etc. 02) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, SUPER JUMP, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air Gun Fire H, LAND, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, LAND, JUMP, Air Gun Fire H Video: http://youtu.be/tfdWvK-iQbk (by trag13) This combo shows off the bread and butter of how Chris can juggle from the air with his Air Gun Fire H. The moment the air magnum is performed, it will knock the opponent to the ground and bounce them off the ground. When Chris lands, he can juggle the opponent with a stun rod hit then knock the opponent back up with an S attack. After finishing another full air combo, he can juggle the opponent one more time with an Air Gun Fire H or a player can substitute in a Down + H handgun fire. 03) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, SUPER JUMP, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, LAND, JUMP, Air Gun Fire H, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, LAND, Air Gun Fire H The combo above is basically the same as the last combo except that Chris knocks the opponent to the ground at the first combo with an Air S instead of an Air Gun Fire H. After the first Air S, allow Chris to hit the ground then jump back into the air and perform an Air Gun Fire H then perform the usual juggle with the stun rod then knock the opponent back into the air. Like before, the combo can end with an Air Gun Fire H or a Down + H. I mainly wanted to list this combo just to show that a Chris player doesn't need the Air Gun Fire H as part of the air combo to knock an opponent back into the air. 04) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Grenade Toss L, Sweep Combo This combo is very simple, but it is one of few that uses a Grenade Toss L along with a Sweep Combo. ************** LEVEL 3 COMBOS ************** 01) Gun Fire H, Level 3 Satellite Laser If you know for a fact that a Gun Fire H is going to hit your opponent, you can instantly cancel it into Chris' level 3 hyper combo at any time and the opponent cannot escape it if you're quick enough. The Gun Fire H is good at catching an opponent off guard, so why not add more insult to injury! 02) Air Gun Fire H, Gun Fire H, Level 3 Satellite Laser This combo is basically just a slight extension of the one above. If you hit an opponent with an Air Gun Fire H then quickly juggle them with a ground Gun Fire H as Chris hits the ground then cancel into his level 3 hyper combo. 03) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch M, Grenade Launcher, Gun Fire H, Level 3 Satellite Laser During the Combination Punch M, cancel into the Grenade Launcher hyper combo before the second punch connects and Chris will hit the opponent with the full Grenade Launcher hyper combo. While the opponent is falling back, time a Gun Fire H to juggle the opponent and wall bounce them then immediately cancel into Chris' Level 3 Satellite Laser. 04) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch L, Body Blow (L), Heavy Blow (H), Grenade Launcher, Gun Fire H, Level 3 Satellite Laser Instead of performing a Combination Punch M, a player can perform a Combination Punch L followed by a Body Blow and Heavy Blow then immediately cancel into the Grenade Launcher hyper combo right as the Heavy Blow hits. Using the Combination Punch L followed by the Body Blow and Heavy Blow makes the Grenade Launcher much harder to cancel into however. 05) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch H, Level 3 Satellite Laser This combo is the easiest way to cancel into a level 3 Satellite Laser from a ground combo. Since the opponent will instantly hit the ground after the Combination Punch H and won't be able to recover for a few seconds, Chris can easily hit them with his level 3 hyper combo. ************* CORNER COMBOS ************* 01) [in corner] c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch L, Body Blow, Heavy Blow, Payoff, Flamethrower, Sweep Combo The juggle sequence above is one my own personal made up combo sequences for fitting a flamethrower into a juggle without an X-Factor cancel. 02) [in corner] c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch L, Body Blow, Heavy Blow, Payoff, s.H, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, Air Gun Fire H, Gun Fire H, Level 3 Satellite Laser Video: http://youtu.be/btlG2ju35FM (by trag13) This corner combo is a good showcase of how a player can juggle with a Combination Punch H and then perform Chris' level 3 Satellite Laser afterwards. The Combination Punch H will always hit the opponent for a hard knockdown so long as the second punch of the Combination Punch H connects. 03) c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch M, Magnum Combo, Air Gun Fire H, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, Air Gun Fire H Video: http://youtu.be/tJjK8pv3afM (by trag13) 04) [in corner] Throw, s.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, Combination Punch H, Sweep Combo Video: http://youtu.be/PJDSsRZUDu0 (by trag13) This combo has some very strict timing with the standing L. You really have to get the feel of the timing for standing L after the throw in order to do this all the time. A c.L can be used to start this combo sequence up also - it doesn't have to be a s.L. __ / _\ \ \ _\ \ __________________ \__/ T R A T E G I E S \_______________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- STRATEGIES ***************** CHRIS' BEST POKES ***************** The following is a list of the best ways to open up an opponent up for a combo: Crouching L [close range] Crouching M [mid range] Stun Rod (forward + H) [close or mid range] Air Gun Fire H Air Gun Fire M [during super jump] Chris' crouching M and Air Gun Fire H will be your main tools for opening an opponent up for damage. The crouching L is best used from extreme close range and the stun rod can be good for anti-air defense. The stun rod covers the most area out of all of Chris' ground attacks so it can hit an opponent the easiest, but it also has the most recovery frames out of all of his ground attacks listed above, so it's easier for an opponent to counter. The Air Gun Fire H can be good to sneak in at just about any time when jumping forward or backward. Of course, you don't want to do it constantly though. The Air Gun Fire M can serve as good opener for an opponent that remains on the ground. Chris can leap into the air and fire to spray his opponent on the way down. The Air Gun Fire M will actually stagger your opponent just enough to where you can link into a crouching M then start a full combo on the staggered character after falling if the Air Gun Fire M hits. Overall, Chris' crouching M is his best overall opener for an attack most of the time. It can hit an opponent that is in the air and juggle an opponent after a Grenade Toss L to set the opponent up for a full combo. *************************** ASSISTS THAT CAN HELP CHRIS *************************** - Anti-Air Cover Dormammu's Purification Dante's Jam Session Haggar's Double Lariat Super Skrull's Tenderizer Hulk's Gamma Charge (Anti-Air) Haggar's Double Lariat assist is easily one of the best anti-air assists for Chris. Chris can juggle or OTG with his other moves as the lariat hits his opponent. One of the best juggles is a flamethrower (Back + H) juggle. The double lariat helps out a bunch in the corner for extra juggling off of an Down + H shot as well! Dante's Jam Session is another good choice for anti-air assist for Chris. It's so instant and the distance of the beam goes quite far upward. Dormammu's Purification is another good anti-air assist for Chris. Hulk's Gamma Charge (Anti-Air) assist has super for its start-up, so it can help out for when and opponent jumps into Chris. This assist will leave Hulk wide open to attack, so be sure to cover the assist with one of Chris' gunfire's as it starts up. - Projectile Cover Iron Man's Unibeam Storm's Whirlwind Ametarasu's Cold Star Magneto's Electromagnetic Disruptor Hulk's Gamma Wave Thor's Mighty Spark Sentinel's Sentinel Force Arthur's Dagger Toss - Get an Opponent Off (Off Me) Tron's Gustaff Fire Haggar's Double Lariat Hsien-Ko's Senpu Bu (w/super armor) Shuma Gorath's Mystic Ray Hulk's Gamma Charge (Anti-Air) Hsien-Ko's Senpu Bu with added super armor is the best way to get any opponent off of Chris no matter what the attacker is currently doing. Since Hsien-Ko will have super armor, she can withstand anything, BUT she will still receive all the damage. Haggar's Lariat works extremely well with Chris. The lariat will knock an attacker to the ground instantly and even set the opponent up for Chris' level 3 Satellite Laser! As already mentioned for the anti-air assists, Chris can juggle the opponent with the flamethrower as Haggar hits with his lariat also. ************************* DETONATING GRENADES EARLY ************************* The following basic attacks and special moves can be used to detonate grenades early after Chris throws one. Forward + M Down + H Down + H [air] Prone Shot Gun Fire L Gun Fire M (shoot directly after tossing a grenade) Air Gun Fire H After defeating an opponent's character and awaiting the next character, Chris can quickly perform two Grenade Toss H's and detonate the second with Gun Fire M after tossing it to make two pillars of fire for the next character to land on as the character hops in. Be on the lookout for air hyper combos if the character has one while entering however - such as Taskmaster, Ryu, etc. ************************************************** CHRIS VERSUS CHRIS - ANTI GRENADE THROW DETONATION ************************************************** One interesting note to make about a mirror match of Chris versus Chris is that each Chris player can easily detonate the opposing Chris' projectiles early. If a Chris lays down a proximity bomb with grenade toss L, the other Chris can shoot the proximity bomb and detonate it instantly. The same goes for all of Chris' grenade tosses. ************************************ CHRIS' PRONE POSITION AND PRONE SHOT ************************************ It's so very easy to forget about Chris' prone position since the move doesn't have that many instances where a player can use it, but when fighting a player that constantly spams projectiles from a distance, it can really come in handy. Against an Iron Man player that constantly spams unibeam or proton cannon, Prone Position will easily make him come to you. Chris is sort of anti-Chris in a way since his Prone Position and Prone Shot are good for ducking his own barrage of projectile attacks. Just watch out for that Grenade Launcher hyper combo! ******************************* CHRIS IS A SUPER METER BUILDER! ******************************* A Chris player will often build super through Chris' normal attacks and special move projectile attacks while using him, so it's really best to have Chris as your first character. Chris really needs no hyper combos except for a rare level 1 attack, so he can easily build super for the rest of your team or he can build the super meter for an attempt at his level 3 satellite launcher or a Crossover Combination Team Super once he is almost exhausted from battle. ***************** CHRIS' OTG SETUPS ***************** Chris can follow up a Gun Fire H and his Combination Punch H with his level 3 Satellite Laser at any time so long as the special moves hits to set up the attack. This means that ANY type of juggle hit during a combo with these two moves can lead into his level 3 Satellite Laser. Chris can perform an Gun Fire H after any type of combo that knocks the opponent back and allows Chris to move while the opponent is still in the air over his head. The most common instances are after a full Combination Punch L with the added Body Blow, Heavy Blow and Payoff and after a Grenade Launcher hyper combo - just simply perform a well-timed Gun Fire H then cancel into his Satellite Laser. After a single hit or bounce during a combo with an Air Gun Fire H, Chris can hit with his Combination Punch H then cancel into his Satellite Laser also. Here's an example of a combo with the set up: c.L, c.M, s.H, stun rod, S, JUMP, air M, air M, air H, air S, LAND, air gun fire H, Combination Punch H, Satellite Laser Anytime right after an S knockdown following an air combo or a down + H ground shot (OTG opponent), Chris can chain into a crossover combination (Partner 1 + Partner 2) if his hyper combo will be his grenade launcher during the crossover combination. Choosing either Beta (Gun Fire M) or Gamma (Grenade Toss L) assists will make Chris perform his Grenade Launcher hyper combo during a crossover combination. Picking a team that performs beam supers during a crossover combination will make the crossover combination take off tons of damage after a simple down + H OTG. Chris will hit an opponent in the air after the down + H with his nitrogen round from the grenade and this will hold the opponent in the air long enough for the rest of the team hyper combos to hit along with Chris' grenade rounds. c.L, c.M, s.H, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, Air Gun Fire H, Stun Rod, S, Air M, Air M, Air H, Air S, Down + H*, CROSSOVER COMBINATION (P1 + P2) * The Down + H can be skipped since the grenade launcher in the crossover combination will hit OTG anyway. A team such as Chris, Storm and Dormammu is just one example of a team that can hit well during a crossover combination. Basically, any character that will perform a projectile hyper combo will help out. This videos shows off Chris' Gun Fire H cancel into a level 3 and Crossover Combination (THC): http://youtu.be/Ei04alW6O-w ******************************************************** INVINCIBILITY DURING CHRIS' GRENADE LAUNCHER HYPER COMBO ******************************************************** In the following video, Chris' nitrogen rounds from his grenade launcher hyper combo basically cancel out the entire beam or projectile hyper combo and allows Chris complete invincibility: http://youtu.be/XTe8BrJVILQ I haven't experimented with this finding that much. More to come later. ******************************************** LEVEL 3 SATELLITE LASER INVINCIBILITY PERIOD ******************************************** If you're ever up against an extremely aggressive player that will not back off, especially one that keeps calling in assists to pin Chris down, you can try to perform Chris' level 3 satellite laser as the opponent starts up the aggressive attacking. Chris is invincible to most attacks during the opening frames of the satellite laser, so any attack that tries to make contact with him as he starts this attack will not hit. If you time the satellite laser just right against an aggressive opponent that tries to pin you down with assist, you can get both the opponent and an assist caught in the level 3 hyper combo. The satellite laser opening frames are even invincible to usually unstoppable attacks such as Captain America's hyper charging starts. The only attack that has priority over Chris' satellite laser opening frames are the following level 3 hyper combos: Haggar's Final Haggar Buster Tron's Shakedown Mixer Arthur's For the Princess =============================================================================== _ _ [MI00] | | | | | |___| | |_____ | | | |_| M I S S I O N S =============================================================================== /\/\ / \ / /\/\ \ ______________ \/ \/ I S S I O N S \_______________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ********** Mission 01 ********** Attack using Gun Fire. > Gun Fire H (D, DF, F + H) Perform a ground Gun Fire H. This is one of the most useful moves for Chris so you definitely need to familiarize yourself with this attack. ********** Mission 02 ********** Attack using Combination Punch. > Combination Punch H (D, DB, B + H) Perform a Combination Punch H. ********** Mission 03 ********** Chain together two special moves. > Air Gun Fire H (D, DF, F + H [in air]) > Combination Punch H (D, DB, B + H) Jump and perform a Gun Fire H at the peak of the jump to knock the opponent down then quickly perform a Combination Punch H to juggle the opponent after the ground bounce. ********** Mission 04 ********** Perform a combo using a cancel. > Air S > Crouching L > Crouching M > Standing H > Combination Punch H (D, DB, B + H) Jump and hit the opponent with an S attack while in the air then hit with a crouching L and M attack and chain into a standing H. After the H attack hits, immediately cancel the attack into a Combination Punch H. ********** Mission 05 ********** Perform a combo using an air combo. > Air S > Crouching L > Crouching M > S > Air M > Air M > Air H > Air S Jump and hit the opponent with an S attack while in the air then duck and hit the opponent with a crouching L and M attack and chain into an S attack. The S attack can be done while either still crouching or while standing. Hold up to super jump and follow the opponent into the air after the S attack knock up. While in the air next to the opponent perform an M, M, H, S attack chain to finish the air combo. ********** Mission 06 ********** Perform a combo with a hyper combo cancel. > Crouching L > Crouching M > Standing H > Stun Rod (Forward + H) > Combination Punch L (D, DB, B + L) > Sweep Combo (F, D, DF + ATK) Hit the opponent with a crouching L and M attack then chain into a standing H and quickly tap Forward + H to perform Chris' stun rod attack immediately following the standing H. During the stun rod attack, perform Chris' Combination Punch L. Cancel the Combination Punch L into Chris' Sweep Combo hyper combo to finish the mission. In order to properly cancel the Combination Punch L into the Sweep Combo, the F, D, DF motion must be done after or during the first hook or right as the second hook connects. This is one of Chris' more useful missions since it involves his main combination that a player will want to use with him. The starting hits - c.L, c.M, s.H and stun rod are the most used combo starters for him from close range. ********** Mission 07 ********** Perform a combo with a ground bounce. > Crouching L > Crouching M > S > Air M > Air M > Air H > Air Gun Fire H (D, DF, F + H [in air]) > Stun Rod (Forward + H) > S > Air M > Air H > Air S Hit the opponent with a crouching L and M attack then chain into an S attack to knock the opponent into the air. Jump into the air and perform two M attacks followed by an H attack then perform a Gun Fire H to knock the opponent to the ground. If the Gun Fire H hits, the opponent will be knocked to the ground and will bounce off the ground as Chris lands. While Chris is back on the ground, immediately perform his stun rod attack (Forward + H) then chain that attack into an S attack to knock the opponent back into the air again. Leap into the air and hit the opponent with a quick M, H, and S attack combination to finish the mission. The only tricky part of this mission is the timing with the Air Gun Fire H. If you perform the Gun Fire H too quickly after pressing H, the Gun Fire H will cancel the H attack and it will not hit. Be sure to pause slightly after the H attack then perform the Gun Fire H in order to make the H knife slash hit. On the flip side, you want to do the Gun Fire H input fast enough so that it hits before Chris falls too much during the air combo, so performing the Gun Fire H late can be just as much of a problem. This is one of Chris' better missions since it shows how he can ground bounce during an air combo with his Gun Fire H and then juggle the opponent with a stun rod attack after the ground bounce. Attack combinations such as this play a big role in Chris' gameplay. ********** Mission 08 ********** Perform a combo using X-Factor (corner only). > Crouching L > Crouching M > Standing H > Stun Rod (Forward + H) > Combination Punch M (D, DB, B + M) > Magnum Combo (H during Combination Punch M) > X-Factor (L + M + H + S) > Flamethrower (Back + hold H) > Sweep Combo (F, D, DF + ATK) This combo starts off with the usual combination that was first seen in Mission 6. Etch this combination into your head and learn to perform it well! Make sure that your opponent is in the corner first of all. Start by hitting the opponent with a crouching L and crouching M attack then chain into a standing H and stun rod (Forward + H) attack. Cancel the stun rod attack into a Combination Punch M. Tap the H button during the Combination Punch M to perform the magnum combo where Chris will basically cancel into a standing Gun Fire H. Right when the Magnum Combo connects, immediately cancel it with X- Factor (L + M + H + S) then juggle the opponent with the flamethrower. While Chris keeps the opponent in the air with the flamethrower, cancel the flamethrower into a Sweep Combo hyper combo to finish the mission. Here's some explanations of the troubled areas for this mission: 1) To cancel the Combination Punch M into the magnum combo, a player must tap H right AFTER the second punch of the attack. The correct timing is just a little bit after the second attack, not RIGHT after it. To perform it more consistently, start tapping H after the second hit and keep tapping it until the Magnum Combo activates. 2) Cancel into X-Factor right as Chris shoots the opponent with the Magnum Combo. Make sure that you don't activate X-Factor before the hit connects since X-Factor can easily cancel the hit of the Magnum Combo if it is done too quickly. * If you accidentally activate X-Factor without doing the Magnum Combo or mess up in any way then tap Back + Start/Select + Start to restart the mission to avoid having to wait for X-Factor to wear off. 3) Immediately hold back and hold H to juggle the opponent with the flamethrower after the X-factor cancel. Remember that Chris will keep the flamethrower activated the longer that H is held down. 4) Cancel into the Sweep Combo while the flamethrower is still juggling the opponent. The best way to do this on a joypad is to assign L + M + H to one shoulder button then quickly do the F, DF, F motion then tap that shoulder button while still holding H for the flamethrower. On a joystick, a player should be able to do enter the command then tap two buttons for the Sweep Combo input rather easily. ********** Mission 09 ********** Perform a combo with a crossover assist (corner only). > Crouching L > Crouching M > S > Air M > Air M > Air H > Air S > Partner 2 (Wesker) > Air Gun Fire H (D, DF, F + H [in air]) > S > Air M > Air H > Air S ** NOTE: To make sure that the Air Gun Fire H hits, start performing this combo a few steps back from the opponent. Step back to where the crouching L starter barely hits the opponent. This is the main trick to easily performing the full combination. First of all, make sure that the opponent is in the corner for this mission. Hit the opponent with a crouching L and M attack then chain into an S attack knock up. Jump and follow the opponent into the air then hit the opponent with a M, M, H, S combination while in the air. Once Chris hits the ground, immediately call in the partner then jump straight up and perform his Gun Fire H in the air. The Gun Fire H will hit first then Wesker will ram the opponent then juggle the opponent with his knee. Right after the knee juggle, hit the opponent with an S attack to knock him back into the air. Jump into the air hit the opponent with an M, H, S combination of attacks to finish the mission. Here's some explanations of the troubled areas for this mission: 1) Right after the first S knock up, jump straight up to follow the opponent into the air. DO NOT jump toward the opponent or Chris will not be able to easily juggle him with the Air Gun Fire H upon hitting the ground. 2) Hold the Partner 2 assist button from the beginning and release the assist button right when Chris hits the ground after the Air S to call in Wesker much easier. Failing to release the Partner 2 button right when Chris hits the ground will result in the assist (Wesker) knocking the opponent too far in the air with his knee and make the S knockup not connect properly. 3) When Chris hits ground, jump straight up after calling in Wesker and perform an Air Gun Fire H at the peak of the jump. Chris must leap into the air DIRECTLY after landing in order for the Gun Fire H to hit from the air. 4) Chris should be able to knock the opponent back into air right with an S attack after Wesker juggles the opponent with his knee attack. Chris should be close enough. Simply jump into the air and perform the M, H, S combination to complete the mission. ********** Mission 10 ********** Perform a special combo (corner only). > Crouching L > Crouching M > Standing H > Stun Rod (Forward + H) > Combination Punch L (D, DB, B + L) > Body Blow (L during Combination Punch L) > Heavy Blow (M during Body Blow) > Grenade Launcher (D, DF, F + ATK) > S > Air M > Air M > Air H > Air S Make sure that the opponent is in the corner for this mission. Hit the opponent with a crouching L and M attack then chain into a standing H followed by a stun rod attack (Forward + H). After the stun rod hit, cancel into a Combination Punch L then perform a Body Blow (L during Combination Punch L) and a Heavy Blow (M during Body Blow) and cancel into Chris' Grenade Launcher hyper combo immediately following the Heavy Blow. As the opponent falls from the Grenade Launcher hyper combo, hit the falling opponent with an S attack to knock him up. Jump into the air after the S attack then hit the opponent with the usual M, M, H, S attacks to finish the air combo and complete the mission. Here's some explanations of the troubled areas for this mission: 1) The L press for the Body Blow hit must be tapped right as Chris hits the opponent with the second punch of Combination Punch L. Right when Chris yells "Two!" tap the L button. 2) The M press for the Heavy blow hit must be tapped as the Body Blow hit connects. Basically right after the L tap, press M. 3) The Grenade Launcher must be activated RIGHT AFTER the Heavy Blow. The moment Chris performs the Heavy Blow, the Grenade Launcher must be cancelled into or the hyper combo will not connect. 4) The S attack knock up needs to be performed as the opponent is falling from the final (fourth) hit of the grenade launcher. The S attack will be the 13th hit in the combo. The timing of the S attack is the hardest part in this mission. It must hit as the opponent is about to hit the ground. If Chris hits the opponent too fast then he will knock the opponent too far up and will not be able to jump high enough to finish the combination. Basically, you can't tap the S button after the Grenade Launcher hyper combo, the press must be timed so that it hits the opponent RIGHT before he hits the ground. =============================================================================== _______ [LC00] | _____| | |_____ |_____ | _____| | |_______| L I N K S & C L O S I N G =============================================================================== This section lists a bunch of links to help with Chris gameplay.
