    I didn't see a thread made for this and I figured it would really help out. Game is new and all and not sure about most of you, but I don't know every single move that reflects and doesn't, so I thought I would start off with what I know is not reflectable (HUGE thanks to DaiHuu and Hydro!)


    Below is a list of moves he CAN reflect:

    Baraka's fireball
    Cyrax bombs (absorb only)
    CSZ Ice Ball
    Ermac's fireball
    Goro's fireball
    Jade's shurikens
    Jax's sonic wave
    JC's shadow ball
    Kabal's purple ball
    Kabal's low saw (absorb only)
    Kano knife
    Kintaro's fireball
    Kitana's x-ray (deflects it)
    Kitana's fans
    Kung Lao's low hat
    Kung Lao's hat
    Liu Kang's fire
    Millenna's Sai
    Nightwolf's arrow
    Noob's clones
    Quan chi's fireball
    Raiden's electricity (Even Ex)
    Reptile ball
    Reptile spit
    Sektor missiles
    Shao Kahn's arrow
    Scarlet's sais
    Shang Tsung's skulls/fireballs
    Sheeva's fireball
    Sindel's aerial and ground balls
    Sonya's projectile
    Stryker bomb toss
    Stryker's pistol
    Sub Zero freezeball


    Below is the list he CANNOT reflect


    CBZ bombs
    Cyrax net
    Kabal's ground projectile
    Kintaro's flamethrower
    Scoprion spear
    Shao Kahn's hammer
    Smoke's otg projectile

    lobo woof.

    nori i recall seeing a NW player at power up reflecting/absorbing reptile's spit all day long. maybe it is just a timing issue?

    who are you maining in this game btw? tsung?

    That's interesting. I was basing that off the Tom Brady NW guide but I'll test it out tonight myself. This is the post

    "reflects most projectiles back to the opponent. will not work on some projectiles such as Sub-Zero freeze or KL hat throw. will not work vs some normal projectiles such as any of Noob's, Cyrax net, etc.. when reflecting moves like Noob's projectiles, while you wont send the projectile back at him, you will gain meter for doing the reflect while not taking damage from the projectile."

    The EX reflect absorbs ALL projectiles?


    I want to main Shang but he sucks horribly against (insert teleport char). For tourneys, NW/Reptile

    Is this a list of things he CAN reflect? And since I'm sure you have been playing NW a little longer than me, what's up w/Reptile? I read in Brady's guide he cannot reflect spit, yet Lobo said he saw it at powerup. Can you clarify?
  6. DaiHuu

    DaiHuu Chart Master

    Yes that is what he can reflect, and he can reflect the spit, I've done it numerous times against Reptiles.

    Main post:
    and what freeze are you talking about? His ice ball? You can do it easily.

    Nori Batousai The Original Dictator Premium Supporter

    I was basing the freeze/spit ball/kung lao's standing hat off my first post, which came from the tom brady guide. I guess my question now is, is there anything he CAN'T reflect?
  8. DaiHuu

    DaiHuu Chart Master

    Can't reflect:
    Noob's clones
    Cyrax net
    Scorpion spear (I actually haven't tested this yet, he might be able to deflect it)
    Cyrax/CBZ bombs (Haven't tested this either)
    Smoke's otg projectile
    Kabal's ground projectile
    Stryker's pistol

    That's about it.
  9. Sutter Pain

    Sutter Pain Your mothers main.

    You sure about not reflecting the pistol i swear i have done this.

    Updated first post. I know you can reflect KL's low hat, but what about his regular hat throw?
  11. DaiHuu

    DaiHuu Chart Master

    I think you misread his guide, TB says you cannot reflect the ex versions of those respective moves, you can reflect Kung lao's regular hat throw
  12. DaiHuu

    DaiHuu Chart Master


    and one more thing, you can reflect the stryker pistol, even the ex version.

    Seems I misread it then, oops. And thanks for confirming the Stryker pistol/EX pistol. For some reason it's not letting me edit the first post w/this new info:(

    Thanks. DaiHuu kind of already found everything but I'm glad it's there for a reference
  18. DaiHuu

    One thing, he can only reflect Cyrax's ex bomb, not CBZ's or the normal one, and he can't reflect/deflect Scorpion's spear

    Updated, thanks

    Added bosses also and alphabatized (I'm kinda OCD like that)

    Just one minor thing I noticed, put a (can deflect) after Noob's clones, so newer plays won't get confused and end up not using reflect vs Noob.

    Good thread! A few things I thought I saw left out:

    Sub's Ice Ball is reflectable, EX Ice Ball (Freeze) is not. Both can be absorbed AFAIK. Same deal for Cyber Sub.

    Jade's Boomerang is reflectable, but I couldn't get the low one to reflect.

    Sektor's Flamethrower is not reflectable AFAIK. Not sure about absorb.

    Kung Lao's EX Hat Throw is not reflectable.

    Shang Tsung's regular Skull (horizontal) is reflectable, and I believe all are absorbable. Pretty sure you can't reflect the ground or top skulls.

    Sheeva's fireball is reflectable.

    Kratos' arrows are reflectable, not that it matters competitively.

    Kintaro's flame breath is not reflectable AFAIK. Not sure about absorb.

    Very much not 100% on most of that, so further testing would probably be a good idea. Just thought I'd point out any I didn't see listed in the OP.

    Ah, I knew some stuff were missing, godd stuff and welcome to TYM.

    Can you repost this after it's confirmed for 100%? Thanks for find all the extra stuff
  24. Hydro

    Hydro Lin Kuei

    Yeah, I'll try to test them tonight. Only one that's a pain is Kintaro.

    Edit: my practice buddy isn't able to help me out tonight, so I probably won't get these confirmed until tomorrow night at earliest.

    Kunglao's ex hat is not reflectable, with ex you can absorb
    Both Jade's projectiles are reflectable and absorb able
    Sektor's flamethrower is not reflect nor absorb able
    Shang's ground and top projectiles are reflect and absorb able
    Sub and Cyber Sub zero's ice ball can be reflected and absorbed, their ex can only be absorbed.
