Using Special Moves

A Special move can be applied to an weapon's special slot.

Special Move can be added to the special slot to have it activate in fights. Press (Forward) + (Punch) a number of times (depending on the combo) to execute a special move. Only one Special Move can be applied at once in an equipment. There are two type of Special Moves: Weapon Special Move and Armor Special Move. Special Moves are restricted based on the type of equipment, for example, weapon special moves cannot be applied to armors.

Some special moves comes with an additional combo, which will be performed only if the last hit of the main combo successfully hit the opponent while they are standing. For example, Kenjutsu consists of 2 attacks. If the second attack hits the opponent, then two additional attacks will be performed.

Notes:

  • When performing some special moves of Legion weapons, there will be a short interval occuring, indicated by the character glowing white. During the interval, any hit taken will not cause the user to lose balance, allowing them to finish their attack. The user will still take the full damage, and the interval cannot protect them from Critical hit, Shock knockback, Shadow abilities, or boss' special abilities.
  • The uninterruption interval cannot be canceled by Critical hit while the user is airborne (when they use moves such as Guillotine, Snakebite, Avalanche, etc).

Unavailable Special Moves

These are the weapon special moves utilized by certain opponents in main quests, side missions, or special events. Most of these special moves have been made unobtainable to players to begin with. Stingray Stab was available to players for some time when the game was released worldwide, but later on, it was removed from possible rewards and it has been made unobtainable ever since, meaning that only a few early-game players have obtained the special move.

Trivia

  • The manner of Caveman's Rage move resembles the Mordstreich (lit. "murder stroke"), the technique of holding the sword inverted, with both hands gripping the blade, and hitting the opponent with the pommel or crossguard. This technique allows the swordsman to essentially use the sword as a mace or hammer, with the hilt, pommel and crossguard serving as an improvised hammer head. The Mordstreich is mainly used in armored combat, although it can be used to surprise an opponent in close quarters.
  • Several Special Moves heavily resemble Slashes, Super Slashes and Upper Slashes, or mixtures thereof, of weapons from Shadow Fight 2. These Special Moves include, but are not limited to:
