Flight is such an intricate part of Firebrand’s gameplay that I’m surprised we don’t have a thread about it. Anyway let’s discuss how to use his wings to our advantage. Please list any tips that involve flying with Firebrand. I still think the biggest issue alot of us have with him is mastering his unique mobility.
Flight Tricks I’ve picked up -
- Hell Dive M kara canceled into Air S causes Firebrand to go flying through the sky diagonally with S instead of dropping down vertically. This kills hidden missiles and a bunch of slower assists.
-2H Slide can be made safe by canceling into 214M -> 214L. This also is a mix-up opportunity since Firebrand quickly changes screen sides.
- Using Luminous body after two air movements resets the air movement counter. So you can hell dive from the top corner of the screen to the bottom corner of the other side all in one super jump without using a risky bon voyage.
-A flight mix-up that gets a lot of people for me is 2H slide canceled into 214H then using 236M then doing air bon voyage to get a hell of advantage. Since alot of people spam buttons after block you usually make them whiff and can punish.
