Guilty Gear Strive – best characters for newcomers

Screenshot of GameSpot Trailers

Guilty Gear Strive can be a daunting game. Many mechanics, such as roman russian, dash dash and burst, must always be kept in mind. However, if you are a beginner to the series, you may need a character that is easy to use and friendly to cats. Fortunately, the three figures adorned us with relatively easy movements and entrances.

Ky Kiske

Ky, often called the Ryu (Street Fighter) game by the Guilty Gear community, Ky offers a diverse set of moves that can work in any battle situation. Kyho combos are easy to implement, fast and his sword offers a wide width with its stabbing movement. He also has a number of moves, such as a projectile called Stun Edge (down forward and triangle) and Stun Dipper (down forward and cross), which slides into the opponent. There are even alternative versions of Stun Edge because you can charge it (using a circle instead of a triangle) and pull it out in the air for a diagonal shot. One of his highest moves overdrive is the Sacred Edge, which is an easy entry down, down, forward, angular entry.

Next is May! Like Sol, it has a wide range thanks to its unique anchor weapon. Her attacks have hit hard and can stun enemies with their powerful blows. You can easily hit your opponents with three triangular attacks, which will kill a quarter of their health. He can attack the anchor by attacking a charged circle. May can also unleash projectile attacks that defend her opponents. Arisugawa Sparkle (lower back cross or square depending on how long you want to reach) summons the dolphin to hit the opponent on the beach ball and can be a great tool. Mr. Dolphin (hold and then quickly push forward and a triangle or circle) also works as a surprise attack as he approaches his opponent with a dash attack.

Sol Badguy

Sol is a great all-rounder for beginners in the game. With his sword, he has an amazing range and you can make great movements with little effort. Night Raid Vortex (Down back and triangle) offers a great large-scale attack from one side of the screen to the other, which can go under standing attacks. He can also keep away from rushing enemies by flaming his weapon (down to the square). His blows hit the opponent’s healthy stick and with the incredible range he has with his flaming sword, he can easily face the oncoming attack. With Sol you will feel like a bad ass even without experience with Guilty Gear Strive.
