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

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.
 
Havent seen many barakas doing this the timing is a bit rough but seems like the highest one bar baraka combo ive seen and isnt too too dificult

I find the sooner you hit the F4 the more chance you have of landing the F21 but too soon will also make you wiff HAPPY LABBING!
 
The Timing is way too difficult for me to hit consistently. Also the timing varies on Male to female characters. Djt stopped using that combo because he kept dropping it. It was basically the sole reason he didnt make top 8 at CEO. The only time I try for this combo is when I punish something with f4~bf4 and i need the KB(which is very rare). Still, good looks! And if it works for you, more power to you!
