List of All Gaps in Characters' Kombo Strings

FoughtDragon01

Ask me about my Mileena agenda.
Inspired by @Kompetitor 's thread on the gaps that you could exploit with Flawless Block back in the beta, I decided to quickly put together this rough guide on all current gaps in every available fighters' combo strings. I found them by putting the Training AI on Block All + Flawless Block and went through every combo one by one, listing any gaps as they appeared. Some gaps had some inconsistencies to them, and will be pointed out accordingly. I also only looked for gaps in basic kombo strings. If there are any gaps when a string is cancelled into a special, I don't know what they are yet, so if there are any gaps like that, let me know and I'll update the guide as soon as I see them. I hope that you find this useful in enhancing MU knowledge.

ADDENDUM: There are other, smaller gaps that allow you to backdash or otherwise reversal (though you'll get blown up every time, even Fatal Blow doesn't work), but aren't large enough to Flawless Block, and won't be included in the list.

Wait, does he have no gaps? Or many?
Hi. Kabal's F224 has a small gap as AI starts a backdash.
221 and 11 too. But all of them are not successful so no point back dashing. Not even fatal blow.

But true for flawless block it is not "big enough" I guess. :)

That might be only relevant if you e.g.spam fatal blow looking for stagger during the strings. In Injustice you would spam D1 and blown up for it haha.

Kabal , Sub , Geras, Cassie deserve more Gaps.... No surprise they are super good in this game.... Thats pretty sad to put 1000 gaps for some characters and 0 for other. Because they have unsafe special? LUL

Every gap listed here can be flawless blocked and countered if you know it's coming.
Kotal has a gaps in F243
F24(gap)3
I believe B22 has a gap in B2(Gap)2 as well.

Some of them only have 7f of gap but can still be flawless Blocked if you lab it extensively.
