Working on Hawkeye’s BNB and I have seen much discussion on how to properly land the Ice Arrow into relaunch. Apologies for not putting this in the combo thread but thought I would break out the suggestions I saw here into a unique thread. Landing the ice arrow looks to be a staple of his damage potential.
Curious as to what the best way is** in the corner.** Looking for a sort of best practices type deal.
(All options assume you delay the:h:, :s: of the air combo to allow yourself the most hitstun/time)
Looking for someone to vet/criticize if I have anything wrong
During combo neutral jump in the air and hold back, this allows for the correct spacing on landing for an easy Light Trick Maneuver into Ice Arrow due to drifting back in mid air.
(haven’t tried this myself)
I have also heard claims that Hard Trick Maneuver into Ice Arrow works in the corner, but doubt this myself. Thinking that the Forward/Hard trick maneuver into Ice Arrow is for the mid screen spacing variants only.
Land, Dash backwards and immediately perform Light Trick maneuver into Ice Arrow. I have tried this myself and the timing still seems too tight for me to hit consistently in the corner. Am I performing the dash inputs correctly? Or is there someway to buffer/cancel this to make it happen even faster.
(been watching some of combofiends video’s using hawkeye and his backdash into light trick shot looks much faster then mine)
The inputs I do are as follows…
Upon landing I immediately input:
Any techniques to make this all come out faster and land that ice arrow in the corner reliably?
Thanks for the help!
