Hey, everyone

I wanted to make a thread to specifically focus on Variation 1. This thread will over updated over time. I'm sure there will be mutual combos between this, her other variation, and kustoms, but I mainly want to focus on Variation 1 here.

VARIATION 1 ("Frost-Byte")

Midscreen BnBs

No Krushing Blow (KB) Needed
  • B32D1, 13-BF4 into bomb setup (234 damage)
  • B32D1, B12-DF2 into bomb setup (228 damage)
Krushing Blow (KB) needed
  • B2212(KB), walk forward, B12-DF2 into far bomb setup (258 damage)
  • B2212(KB), B2-Fatal Blow (403 damage)
  • BF4(KB), ff, B12-Fatal Blow (483 damage)
  • BF4(KB), ff, B12-DF2 into far bomb setup (295 damage)

Sick!
The corner BnB that I wrote down is 243.95 dmg

Also, Ive seen past combo threads put every conceivable combo a character can do even if it's not viable. Can we limit the combos to the main BnBs? For example the combo that I posted in the corner can be changed if someone has a higher damaging version with the same start up and that knocks the opponent down in the same way.

Yea I'm perfectly fine with that. I prefer that honestly. Also, guys, please don't post anything that starts with a Ji1 or Ji2. What is your corner BnB again?

Are there midscreen BnBs that dont end in bomb setups and instead just inflict more damage? Lets say in scenarios where you want to close the match

K So im in practice mode and I got a few questions:

  1. In this variation, BF4 is the Arctic Barrage (the advancing overhead ice axe) right?
  2. If So, How do you set the AI to do a low attack in order to practice the BF4 KB?
  3. You have this combo B32D1, 13-BF4 into bomb setup, written twice in the midscreen (no KB) and after testing it, it does 234, not 218 (more dmg ftw)
Im loving these combos so far :D

  1. Yes
  2. Record your opponent doing a d1 in practice mode.
  3. I'll check when I get home. Wondering if they changed the damage.
I also hear that Frost has a vortex, but I haven't seen it yet.

Playing on Xbox here and this variation is listed as "Frost-Byte". I think "In Defiance" was the default one but it came with the divekick thing instead of Arctic Barrage.

Anyway, I really like the character and this variation is cool.

Some combos with DB3 aka Cyber-Head. There's seemingly some small inconsistencies with how the move juggles based off spacing or perhaps what strings you do. Some string seems to give a higher juggle(besides obvious like 43 launcher), not 100% sure. Could just be the awkwardness of juggling with 344.

Corner:

13~DB3, 1~DB3, D1~DF2 (246, 271 AMP)
13~DB3, 1~DB3, 13~DF2(263, 287 AMP)

43~DB3, 13~DF2 (234, 263 AMP)
43~DB3, 1, 1, 13~DF2 (247, 275 AMP)

344~DB3, 13~DF2(247, 275 AMP)

That 344-DB3 doesn't work for me at all. The DB3 completely whiffs on hit. I'm testing against Frost with Frost. =\ Female hitbox issue?

Yeah I was testing it on Liu but evidently it doesn't work on Frost, just tested it on Jacqui too and it whiffs against her as well. You can actually combo do 344~DB3 midscreen though! So if you have that spacing near the corner jusssstttt right...

It does seemingly work on males though.

B2212(KB)
  • Midscreen: B2212(KB) > B2~bomb. (Only good follow-up I found midscreen)
  • Corner: B2212(KB) > walk a little forward > 1~DB3 > 1 > 13 > DF2(amp) = 320.57 dmg
Consistent Punish (can also end with bomb (DB2) for a setup)
  • 43 > DF2(amp) = 192.20 dmg
Wonderful Consistent Setup midscreen
  • B32D1 > B2~Close Bomb (DB2B) > Dash (walking wont work) > Grab
Ill post the combos that are universal in the other thread also

I haven't read the comments yet but you can add a standing 1. B32d1, 1, dash 13~bf4. I'm trying to main her even if she is considered awful.
