COMPASSION IS FOR FOOLS
you should include optimal fatal blow cancel combos for shock jock, I've heard that he can get some crazy damage but I'm only capping out at like 40%

Would you play me in a mirror match, first to 3? Only post it here if I do well.

Thanks so much for this. @Kompetitor

with this kombo
F344 ~ BD3 AMP, Dash B2, F4 ~ BD3
you don't need to dash again between b2 anf f4? I've only ever hit it midscreen after micro dashing again

Is the timing for F344 and 244 really tight on PS4? Because on PC i have to really mash it out for 44 for it to even come out, like really bad. And even then it's not consistent.

Yes, it’s tight. I don’t find F344 too bad, but 244 can be a problem at times. I find sliding my thumb from 2 to 4 helps with consistency

244 is a bit more optimal as an 11 frame punish than 12. It does 15-17% more damage depending on the BNB. I feel with the lack of KBs, we need to optimize as much damage as possible. 244 is an essential string in JC's kit IMO.
