Kind of a noob question, but


#1

Angel’s laser. How do I beat it. My friend just spams it relentlessly and I know it can’t be as broken as it seems, but I can’t figure a way around it. I come from a Street Fighter background so I’m new to Tekken, but I’m not dumb ._. it really seems unstoppable. Also I know you can crouch it, but I don’t think it’s fair to have to crouch walk across the whole screen just because she is on the screen, this isn’t Marvel.


#2

Can’t you just side step it? It’s the one that shoots straight forward but has slow start-up, right?

I’m not really familiar with the character, I just know that she’s a “clone” of Devil Jin and you can side-step Devil Jin’s laser.


#3

If it’s the same as DevilJin’s (haven’t played Angel)… you can either sidestep + punish or duck and dash up punish.
The move is super unsafe if it misses you.


#4

That’s the thing I don’t understand… It starts up super fast for an unblockable (less than one second for sure) and this is my major grip is you can’t side step it. That was the first thing I tried :confused:


#5

At what time are you side-stepping? Because if you side-step too late then you get hit. I think you need to anticipate it and side-step before the laser beam even appears…if you see her duck her head, RUN!

Unless that’s when you tried to side-step in which case I have no idea how else to avoid it other than crouching and slowly walking forward. :frowning:


#6

I’ll try a more strictly timed side step, but even that seems too much because of the rate he can spam it. I’ll go into training mode some more and see what I can figure out, but at the moment crouch walking is all I have and that seems to be far to limiting.
