Have you been wondering what that "S" in the new character selection screen stands for? It is actually the special skill that each character has!
Each character's special skill also varies from the others'! Their special skills are essentially part of what separates and differentiates them from the other characters.
And you might have guessed it by now but you can activate your character's special skill using your S key on your keyboard. It is really a good coincidence that it is just right above the X key, which is what you use for attacking.
So before showing off Beat's special skill, which is the 5-hit combo, there is something that you need to know about the characters' special skills.
They can be considered as the character's final move and thus usually does a lot more damage than the abilities you have seen thus far. As such, they use up a huge amount of mana/mp (e.g Beat's special skill costs 5 mp).
So without further a due, here's the full glory of Beat's 5-hit combo!
By pressing your S key, Beat essentially puts on his headphone and dashes to the nearest enemy to do a 5-hit combo. If the enemy dies before Beat finishes his combo, he will move on to the next closest enemy to finish up the last few hits.
You do also have to note that when the combo finishes, you will end up right next to the last enemy which your combo has hit. While you are invincible when you're doing the combo, you will become vulnerable once Beat puts down his headphone.
So what do you think of the new special skill for Beat? Do you like it? Or you do feel that it is overpowered? Ro's special skill is still on the way so look forward to that too!
