Dragon Ball FighterZ Quick Tips

  • To punish a Super Dash you can press Down + Heavy Attack with precise timing.
  • Super Dash will go through most projectile attacks that are not super moves or command special moves.
  • Most jumping attacks must be blocked from a standing position. If you crouch you will get hit.
  • Use Vanish (Medium + Heavy) to punish raw super moves used outside of a combo. You can perform a Vanish during the starting animation of a super move or most other attacks.
  • Forward + Medium Attack is a universal overhead attack for all characters.
  • You can call certain assists to extend combos or cover your Super Dash approach, making it harder to punish.
