Quick 1 meter B&B for Baraka with Cyrax kameo:


(notation: 21, EX df+2, b31, dash, 21, df+2, neutral+kameo(time at around the third hit of Baraka's df+2), j.14, j.df+2)

This combo gets you to the corner from round start position. Timing the Cyrax kameo is a little finicky, so the damage can vary from 47%-50% depending on how many times the heli-chopper hits. This combo is also possible mid-screen, but the Cyrax kameo is again really finicky with timing and positioning.

I was watching it thinking "idk about spending meter so early"
Then I saw that 50% pop up on screen and I shut up lol

Wanted to share a couple midscreen combos:


This first one is basically the same combo as the one a couple posts above, only midscreen. I'll say that this combo is very stringent on timing and the opponent's position/height during the juggle. While I did 49% in the video, you can get 50%, but again, I find this combo to be very inconsistent midscreen. Cause depending on the height & timing, sometimes the opponent will fly to the left/right, sometimes they'll get blown out of your air string, or sometimes Cyrax will hit a couple times and your opponent will just not rise up with him, thus ending the combo prematurely.


I do however have another combo that I feel is much more consistent:


This one is basically the same, but replace the second df+2 special with the db+1 special. Now, timing the Cyrax kameo during the db+1 is a little difficult; you need to time it just an instant after the second stab of the animation so that Cyrax doesn't knock you out of the animation. That said, even if you mess up the timing on Cyrax kameo, you can still save it by inputting a second db+1 as you get knocked out of the attack throw animation; you just lose like 3% on the combo, as the video shows.

Can we get more damage from his low starter? I've been using this so far:
b31 >> b31 >> 21df2 kameo (neutral) 14df2 ~40% meterless

Some stuff that may make Mavado worth your while:



He can turn his F44 string into a safe, 12-frame, mid/mid launcher with either hit for a decent chunk of damage.

Didn't make vids, but his 444 string also becomes a safe launcher.

I'm sure everyone has already figured Baraka could do this stuff, but it is really nice and takes away the sting of having no save B3 cancel

Baraka got some new combo routes in corner with Stryker now since the change to his grenade gravity in combos.

It's basically the same route as Kano but it does more damage than his.

New combo is
21-df2ex, b31, B1+back kameo-bf1, 21,df2 423 damage 1 bar one kameo

Works of b31 starter aswell but with F3 you still have to use the old route F3, B1+back kameo-bf1, 21df2
