Marauder - Max Damage Midscreen/Corner Optimals

Wazurau

FGC Since '97
A quick demonstration video showing off max damage midscreen and corner optimals using the Marauder variation of Baraka.

Nice work and much appreciated! I had some combos labbed out but now i can plan to set up max dmg optimals for multiple situations

I dont think these are worth going for in a match. I was able to do the midscreen somewhat consistently in lab, but the timing is extremely tight for marginally more damage...and it doesnt seem to work against all hitboxes.

I wasnt able to land the corner one...any tips?

You'd need to quickly land the first S4 as soon as you recover from the launching BF4, it keeps the opponent juggled higher in the air. Doing it too late and you won't be able to connect 112 after the second S4.

It is without a doubt a tougher conversion than the midscreen one, but the scaling is significantly better.

There shouldn't be much trouble with the midscreen optimal though. I even demonstrated on a female hurtbox to prove it is capable of working on the more difficult hurtboxes in the game. The trick is simple, a little walk forward into the F4, hitting on the last few active frames. Recovering fast enough to safely land the F21.

Thanks ill try it again in lab. I still dont thik its worth going for in a match, unless you can land 10/10..DTJ dropped it to lose a round this weekend as well =(. but its nice to have at least a few challenging combos with baraka...I can do his other bnbs with my eyes closed at this point
