Air to Air 2- I have gotten dash 112 a couple of times with this, but I haven't found a consistent way to do it yet. For now i'm just doing the F4 combo like the first.
For jump ins and crossovers you can do the standard 112 combos in the OP.

midscreen (1 bar):
Starter bf4! walk forward f4xbf4

Corner:

(Starter) bf4! J2 112xbf4

(J3 starter) d1 112xbf4! 4x(db3 or bf4)

I’ll edit this post with numbers later and expand on the notations when I get to a computer. These are for the competitive variation that utilizes gutted.

Gutted Variation:

Starters into Gutted: 112, 4, F4, F21, B31,

Starter~MB Gutted, dash 4 Chop Chop- 352 damage
112~MB Gutted, dash F4 Gutted KB- With ticks it does something like 450 damage I think (rough count of ticks is 80 damage, let me know if that is wrong).
AA 1 F4~MB Gutted dash F4 Chop Chop
KB D2 dash B31~MB Gutted dash F4~Gutted KB- Something like 550 damage.


You can also end those in B4 for oki/setups.

Corner

Starter~MB Gutted, J2, 112~gutted KB- Does anywhere from 420 to 500 damage. You can also end in B4 for oki.

I haven't messed around with the other variation because I think it is way worse and don't see a reason to use it so far.

So I think the fact that f21 ticks into his grab might be useful in the second variation vs people trying to flawless block.

Also, b3, d1/3/4 all tick in addition. That's a lot of tick opportunities.

I think the second variation has potential.

I mentioned it in the discord, but b3 on block can be cancled into the throw. Actually devastating to perfect block.

After some more testing I can see it. Still not sure i'd give up the footsies and damage from the first one for it, but I see it. I don't think f21 would be reliable though because f2 is a high and d2 krushing blows are pretty much always full combos.

Here is what i've found as far as Variation 2 combos go:

D2 KB, dash 112 blood lunge- 347
F44KB~blood lunge- 274
AA1 dash 112 blood lunge

Corner
Starter~Spines D1 112 Blood Lunge

Some more variation 1 corner combos. Honestly the damage on some of these is pretty insane, wouldnt surprise me if it gets nerfed pretty quick:
D2KB J1 112~MB Gutted 112 Gutted- 580 damage with ticks (that is close to 70% of the lifebar).
F44KB~MB Gutted J1 112 Gutted- 575 damage with ticks

Tonight, Tarkata feasts
These are just a couple of kombos I used during the beta. I'm not sure how much the damage is with the ticks.

F4~MB Gutted, dash/walk forward, F4, Gutted 316 damage

4~MB Gutted, dash/walk forward, F4, Gutted 336 damage

For me walking forward seems to work better instead of dashing after using the MB Gutted.

Dawm any other baraka guides fellas like match ups, tech anything else but combos. what happened to tym
I'll put match ups in the main post as well but it is a little early to tell what the numbers are. If anyone has suggestions or wants to debate it i'm down, But i would say it will be a week or so before we start really fleshing that out

112 - db3, d1 - db3, d1, 112 - bf2 = 305.91
f4 - db3, d1, d1, 112 - bf2 = 272.52 (feels harder for some reason. can just do d1-bf2 for consistency)

Anyone putting numbers to matchups this early on is highly suspect.

Also I think it is a better idea to make a separate thread to discuss matchups, putting them here would clog the thread way too much.

Also just because I forgot to put this one in here.

FBU2 or WakeupU2 dash B31~MB Gutted F4 Gutted KB- 352 damage + ticks
