Are you ever frustrated by those who spam projectiles? You see waves upon waves of blasts heading towards your character, and you have no idea what to do. A dash block is a solution to your conundrum. It’s a useful tool in Guilty Gear Strive that turns the tables on those who are just pressing buttons. Here’s how to implement it.
How to stop the spammers
If there is a content slew of projectiles heading your way, you can counter it. During the brief few moments before the new blast comes your way, dash quickly by double-pressing the right or left D-Pad (or your arcade stick). Then, as the projectile is about to contact, input a crouching block. There should be a spark of energy around your character. Once you get the confirmation of a block, repeat the movement and when you’re close enough, get in a quick attack with the triangle or cross button (S or K).
Jumping isn’t always the answer. There is an impulse to leap over a projectile, but that leaves you open for an anti-air attack from the foe, depending on how close they are. It’s best to stay grounded, dash block, and find an opening within their spam-heavy strategy. Be aware of your opponent’s abilities and react accordingly.
