Hellish Quart: Move Lists

Until the developers give us actual Move Lists in the Pause Menu, I will share my own. It is currently a work-in-progress.

All button presses are shown as if you are using an XBox controller, or at least one with the same buttons, like the Logitech gamepad I use. They are also shown as if you are Player 1 on the left side of the screen.

 

ALL CHARACTERS

When opponent does a low attack:

  • Punish (←Y or ←X): quickly pull your lead leg back, then high attack at the opponent’s head.

Long Guard (LT):

  • Low Swipe (B or A): short downward swipe, used to knock the opponent’s weapon away if they are also in Long Guard.

Close Range:

  • Hand Push (RT): push the opponent’s hand to create an opening.
  • Escape Hand Push (←←): if the opponent pushes your hand, quickly dash backwards to avoid their attacks.
  • Instant Kill (RB or LB): grab the opponent and kill them.
  • Escape Instant Kill (←): if the opponent grabs you, quickly press backwards to escape the grab.
  • Close Attack (Y, X, B, or A): punch, kick, or pommel-strike the opponent to create an opening.
