I'll eventually go through and trim down the combos section But for now i've just left it as is for what has been posted.

The main reason I don't mess with a lot of these Ji1/2 combos is it makes it harder to end in chop chop instead of gutted. You don't want to end in non-amped gutted unless you are getting the KB, IMO. The knockdown from chop chop is +7-10 and you're close enough to do something on their wakeup. You can get non-amped gutted in the corner for good advantage if you have a setup (it's like +44) but midscreen a full dash doesn't even cover enough distance to put you close enough for pressure.

Ending in dash, 4 xx chop chop just seems like the better general combo finish and seems like the most consistent to land to boot. Like even in the first combo in that video if you just drop the jump and end in dash, 4 xx chop chop it's 359 damage.
 
Just see it as an introduction to the Ji2 move video. Nothing more. No need to put any combo in it where Ji2 is not optimal, because everyone knows it or can find it anywhere else already. True the first F4 combo could've left out due to no krushing blow. Other than that, i dont mind the midscreen game after gutted. Footsies and midscreen gameplay with Baraka are more satisfying than the 'in your face' game for me. You know, good projectile, B2, F21, F4 etc. Oh and please jump in, 2 blades up your ass :)

The jump in punch combos are not that hard. It takes more effort to dash instead of just jumping forward. It isn't strictly about the timing of the jump either its more about the timing of the f4 after the punch connects. I land them consistently and barely practiced it at all when I swapped to Baraka. If you jump in punch someone against the corner instead of f4 you can do a 4 instead for even more damage.

help on the marauder gutted amp bnb.

I keep whiffing after the j1. tips to ensure f4 would connect more consistently? thanks
Do your J1 slightly later than you are currently. Use JDF1 if you need since it reaches farther.

Though I would only go for this version if you need the gutted KB off a 2-hit starter (like the B31 in this video). Otherwise I'd stay on the ground and just dash, 4 xx gutted.

jdf1 doesn't exist, its jd1. Also for those having trouble with the j1/2 into F4. You can buffer any input after a j1/2 and it will come out the first frame once you hit the ground. This is universal across all characters, so input it as j2f4, one string. you'll get it everytime.

if f4 hits it doesn't matter if you cancel into gutted or chop chop they will both connect, why would chop chop be any more difficult?

See video for both concepts I mentioned, I chose not to extend chop chop so you can see inputs clearer.

This was one of those problems I had as well.Why did NRS put 2 jump punches in the game. Does any other characters have this to land jump combos.
You can land the regular punch but it has to be deep and right on money.The down 1 works way more consistently and seems easier to hit the foward 4 after.

Anyone know if you can combo after f4,4 KB? I've tried everything on marauder but can't seem to get any combos to stick
 
If you what to really maximize your damage.Put button check on for your KB then you F44 KB into corner and gutted leads to huge damage.I have a hard time doing check hold on KB!I usually just work them to the corner then get KB.
