Hey,

Feel free to post your match/combo videos of Stryker here. Also, talk about good/bad plays to help each other improve their gameplay.

Here’s some week 1 Stryker from me:

Stryker vs Smoke: YouTube - (MK9 Online Ranked) Stryker vs Smoke

Didn’t realize the usefulness of the Baton roll to get out of some attacks


#3

Roll Throw is, in my experience thus far, completely invincible while Stryker is rolling.

It’s like playing Guy in Street Fighter, if Guy’s shoulder was EVEN BETTER.


#4

It’s not totally invincible. I’ve been hit by low attacks out of it before. However, it does roll under all projectiles I’ve seen plus under high attacks/mid attacks.


#5

Just some advice. Switch to using Jump Punch. Offense in MK9 is heavily based on mixups off of jump punch, also dashing in is really good since you can cancel a dash anywhere except the very begin into an attack or block. Also if you’re going to midscreen poke with Stryker, I feel like his back + 3, his 1,2, and Baton Sweep are better than that standing 3.

Anyway, I like how you stay patient and don’t just hammer out stuff which is a bad habit I’ve seen in a lot of people online.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Since then I’ve gotten more comfortable with Stryker’s combos, so I don’t mind hopping in with punch more. However, I still like Jump Kick as an air-to-air since it leaves less of Stryker’s body exposed than Jump Punch.

As far as his pokes go, standing 3 is good since it pokes + pushes Stryker forward so he stays in throw range. I tried back + 3 a bit last night, and while it does go into 2 > 4 for an easy combo, it seems really slow and punishable. I’ll try it out a bit more but those are my initial thoughts.

Also, update on the main post with my playlist. Since then there have been 3 more week 1 Stryker vids vs Kitana, Kung Lao, and Scorpion. Week 2 vids will be coming soon, planning on recording some tonight and having them up around the weekend.

Not sure if these will help, but I did record a bit.

More mixup ideas using the Gun Shot held trick:

Not sure I get why you threw that Grenade there. Looks a bit unsafe vs wake up reversals but the idea is cool.

My execution isn’t perfect grenade threw happened by mistake.

Got a little series of Stryker videos going on:
