As everyone knows, Cody’s counter hit cr.HP is one of his most effective combo setups and leads to some of his most damaging combos in the game. His two mains are:
(Counter hit) cr.HP -> EX rocks -> Ultra 2/ other options
(Counter hit) cr.HP -> cr.HP -> CU / Kick
I’ve actively tried to incorporate this into my game and believe it is the main thing keeping me from a ‘good’ Cody player to a ‘very good’ or ‘great’ player.
I can execute the combos consistently no problem if I do happen to land the counter hit. My main issue is successfully fishing for and consistently landing the counter hit cr.HP. So, to those of you who CAN land it semi-consistently, what is your approach?
The only thing i really do to attempt it is to throw the cr HP out during block strings after a couple cr.LPs or stomach blow (->+MP). But I usually just get jabbed out of it, thrown, or it just gets blocked.
When I watch videos of great players online they seem to land it so consistently (at least once or twice a match, if not more) and I can’t figure out exactly what they’re doing to fish for it.
So, share your strats / counter hit tricks with us!
