One of the more important techniques in air dash-based anime fighters is the “instant air dash.” This technique allows players to quickly approach from the air, and set up overhead attacks and mix-ups. Now usually this can take a bit of practice to perform, however a method has been found in Dragon Ball FighterZ that allows players an easier way to do it in that game.
The video below from Austin Murphy demonstrates how this technique is performed. Instead of using the usual double tap into upforward input, the method uses the fact that quickly tapping the command for a Super Dash (R2 or Right Trigger in the default control mapping) results in a normal dash that’s slightly off the ground. By simply tapping forward and Super Dash (making sure not to trigger it), players effectively get a one-button instant air dash in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
As the video demonstrates, this technique was tested in the open beta. Whether or not it remains in the retail game, well, we’ll find out when Dragon Ball FighterZ finally hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26 in the West, and February 1 in Japan.
