    Only combo I've found useful midscreen so far is F24 D1 F3 nut punch. Nothing special but maybe a brick for others to build off of.

    I spent like 5 minutes with him, so I might be missing something, but doesn't MB nut punch launch? So you could link another string off right?

    Yes , but honestly I don't think we should be looking for 1 bar bnb's at this point , considering meter is even more precious with 0 invincibility wake ups.

  10. This is true! It is very hard to get up in this game and without meter, you're toast!

    Its been a bit difficult for me to remember that Nutpunch is now DB3 instead of DB1. So many dropped combos.

    Have you guys found out good strings for pressure. I've been doing alot of 6YB then XY into 5A sorry I forget the button annotations.

    Nope, nothing really all that great yet. Mainly trying to use his 12 string and build from there since its only 5 frames on startup.

    He's not the pressure character that he was in MK9, so pressure strings may be limited.

    Haven't had much time in Practice thus far, but from what I've been thus far, Stunt Double has been the most fun style to play as.

    This is the punish i've gotten to work in the corner with fisticuffs

    f4 nj3 f4 11 11 11 db3. It does 27%, so there's definitely probably better stuff.

    If you start with a NJ3, you can do f4, f4, f4, 11, 11, 11 db3 for 30%

    One thing that I've noticed during Practice is that if you hit Cage's X-Ray while he still has a Stunt Double charge, the X-ray nullifies it, so you can't continue the combo with a Shadow Mimic Uppercut or Shadow Mimic Kick.

    Holy crap, literally all Johnny needs in the corner is 11 loops, the damage is insane

    Forward 24, down 1, jump 1, 11, 11, 11, 11, 11 xx backflip

    The bnb i figured out can be worked in the corner with 12 loops.

    F24 D1 F24 Ex Nut Punch then 12 12 12 into shadow kick.

    Lol, get bodied by anime notations.
    MK Notations:

    U - Up
    D- Down
    F - Forward
    B - Back

    Square/X - 1
    Triangle/Y - 2
    Cross/A - 3
    Circle/B - 4

    So what you put down transcribes to F24, 12, F3

    This one works in Stunt Double as well if you wanna switch out EX Nut Punch for a Shadow Mimic Uppercut to get a launcher without meterburn.

    I've been getting insane damage off his jump ins and overheads when he has stunt doubles. The damage is insane.

    edit: i made a quick example:


    QUAN-FUSION Crotch-puncher

    That b12121212121212 string in fisticuffs is hectic for chip with the bump!

    I managed to get 10 hits, but it usually stops at 9?

    AK Stormthegates WOOLAY!!!!
