Foreword

First off, this tutorial was supposed to be completely in Video format, but all of the clips I had recorded were lost when I got some retarded virus. So I will use the clips I have salvaged from my thumb drive and you tube and I will finish writing the tutorial. It won?t be as good as I wanted it to be, but I still feel that I need to complete this, with that being said I will start covering how to play Venom, both casually, and somewhat competitively.

I will continue to edit this post even after it is done, so if you have any combos or suggestions let me know and I will add it to the tutorial.

I have also included my salvaged video clips to show you a visualization of what I am talking about. Please watch the videos then read the text for best results. Enjoy.

God shit i just randomly saw it on youtube


#3

Same here. Nice guide. Will look at the videos when I have more time. I like the corner air combos and Sentinal Assist/Throw combos a lot though.


#4

omg imma have to get somebody to sticky this shit man…

God like shit. I guess Im hitting the lab for some low-tier work.


#5

Thx Dude, glad you like it.


#6

thanks for the guides. Love to use Venom as lead, Cpt America and Cable


#7

Venom leads my squad as well…good tips and vids.


#8

same here. AntiJosh nice Venom I team him Doom (AA) and Sabertooth (EXP) assist. When Saber assists comes out and someone jumps over I usually catch them with the fierce web throw.


#9

That’s Sick I like doing that with Anti-Air assists cause they launch the character perfectly in the air for venom to catch him.


#10

my problems are with MSP teams. Should I use Doom assist as a counter to Magneto?


#11

awesome man, i love venom. everybody laughs when i pick him, but he’s the character i stuck w/ the longest. he’s no MSS but he has PLENTY of potential, good stuff bro.


#12

That’s What I do, Just use Doom’s rocks every chance you have an opening. It covers Venom From most of his normal punishable moves.


#13

Ya had some good matches on PSN as of late and learned some good stuff. Been trying Doom and Cyke as assists and do quit well against MSP. Jumping jab is also a viable too against those that air dash as well when Doom’s Rocks are out. Tiger knee venom fang is good as well against those that have Sent Drones as an assist.


#14

Good stuff, man. Here are a few venom tricks that I found a while back. Some may be stuff you’ve posted already.

Venom exansion-Sentinel ground-Tron projectile

Venom Corner Mix-Up Setup:

FK throw, walk forward, s.lk (juggle), hold forward.

-Venom switches sides with the opponent and is now in the corner.

Corner Mix-Up with Assist:

  1. FK throw, walk forward, call tron proj + s.lk(juggle), hold forward (cross-up) xx venom web.

note: The cross-up sandwhiches the opponent between venom and tron. Its a nice mix-up because there are two ways to get your opponent to block the wrong way. (a) the cross-up itself (b) when you do the venom web, venom jumps out of the corner, forcing the opponent to turn around and possibly block the wrong way. They?ll eat tron’s rings and the venom web will link. And finally, if its blocked, its safe.

  1. FK throw, walk forward, s.lk(juggle), hold forward (cross-up), call tron proj xx venom web.

note: Its very similar to the combo above, except the opponent isnt sandwiched. The venom web still forces the opponent to turn around and potentially block the wrong way. Also, its a nice mix-up between the two combos. Again, its safe if it is blocked.

  1. FK throw, walk forward, call sentinel ground, s.lk(juggle), hold forward (cross-up), s.lk [hit confirm], s.lk xx Death bite.

Possible for drones to interrupt the super

note: I like tron mix-ups a bit more, but this is ok. If you see the crossed-up s.lks hit, do the super. If not, then let the drones hit from behind-usually blocked-and go from there. If the super is interrupted, I like to go for a tick FK throw back into the corner.

  1. FK throw, walk forward, s.lk(juggle), hold forward (cross-up), s.lk [hit confirm], s.lp + sent ground xx FP venom fang, sents drones hit from behind > follow up of your choice.

note: So, its a pretty weak crossup and can be seen coming a mile away, but it works sometimes. The good news is that if its blocked, its safe. Also, if the crossed-up s.lks are blocked, call in sent and do a FP venom fang. This is another chance at a cross-up and again, its safe if it is blocked. The launch/blocked FP venom fang cross-up also works mid-screen.

Corner follow-ups after a FK throw

oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fk, land, j.lk, j.fk.
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fk, land, j.lk, j.fk, land, j. FP throw
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fk, land, j.lk, j.fk, land, call in sent ground, j. FP throw into assist, dash, oc.FP > whatever
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, j. FP throw
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, call in sent ground, j. FP throw into assist, dash, oc.FP > whatever
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, slight pause, FK throw, oc.FP > whatever
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, slight pause, call tron proj, FP throw into rings, oc.FP > whatever
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, slight pause, FK throw > corner mix-up
oc.FP, call in sent ground, sj.lp, pause, sj.fp into assist, hold forward, FP throw before you land
oc.FP, call in sent ground, sj.(forward) lp, pause, sj.fp into assist, land opposite side of opponent, oc.FP, sj.lp, lk, lp, lk, fp.
oc.FP, sj.fk, delay sj.fp (1 hit), land, pause, call sent ground, FP throw, assist hits, venom web, c.lk(otg), s.lp, pause, call in sent ground, j.FP throw into assist, oc.FP > whatever.
Note: With the sj.FP. If it does 1 hit, it acts like a light attack during an active flying screen. 2 hits will cause the flying screen/keep it active.

Interesting mid-screen mix-up and other stuff

[Sentinel] s.lk, s.lk xx lp RP xx HSF, fp RP xx HSF, DHC venom web (before the drones hits), Drones interrupt super [venom stops attack and drops, while opponent stays in mid air for a split second] land, call tron proj, walk under opponent (cross-up) > whatever.
FP throw, DHC (opponent blocks)?This is TK HVB safe!

End all midscreen are combos with sj.FP…
-Launch, sj.lp, lk, lp, lk, FP-

Venom will land next to the opponent and this opens up a lot of nice mix up options such as:

-land, jump u/b xx dash xx FP = this is a nice, quick overhead.
-land, call in tron, jump xx dash over the opponent
-land, call in tron, jump xx dash over the opponent, as soon as you see the opponent face the other way XX into a lp vemom fang.

note: what happens is venom will do the venom fang in the opposite direction, so if they anticipate the jump xx dash cross, do this to keep them guessing even more.
