Jak has so many useless attacks

16 replies 512 views Edited Jan 8, 2013

Circle: Horrible Range, No stun, bad AP gain, easily destroyed by the slightest touch.

 

Up Circle: Anti Gravity. What does this accomplish? It doesnt chain to any of Jak's other moves well, certainly not his first special.

Long start up time for how useless it really is

 

Up Triangle: Jak's only real stun move, and it only hits in the air, where he cannot do much.

 

Triangle: Crap AP gain, doesnt even do a whole lot. Infact the knockback on this is so bad you cant even keep enemies in it.


Down Triangle: This has pretty much no range at all. Im serious, try jumping and using it. It wont even make it to the ground.

First Special: This has almost no range at all, you really have to plan in order to get a kill with this.

 

Second Special: Its okayyy. but for a lv 2 special its very delayed, I dont get why you cant stay transformed as Dark Jak and get kills that way either. You know, like that op raiden's 2nd special



Honestly, whenever I try to play jack, I find myself only using his airal forward melee, down circle, or foward Triangle to attack.

 

 

Everything else on him is just bleh.

Yea I really hate all the talk of nerfing this and that, but Jak could really use a buff.  And I say this as somebody who doesnt use him at all

You need some imagination, especially if you're sticking to air forward+square, down+circle and forward+triangle.

 

The Gyro buster isn't meant to gain much AP or stay around very long. It's just an addition on whatever else he's doing (otherwise it would last longer than 4 seconds).

 

The Peace Maker is one of his best attacks. Used in conjunction with his ground Beam Reflexor, he has everything he needs for anti-air. The air Beam Reflexor is hardly his only option for attacking from the air: try the Arc Wieldier (neutral triangle) or Needle Laser (forward+circle) sometime.

 

I agree he could probably use some slight AP-buffs: nearly every move you mentioned nets about 5 AP at the most. But the moves themselves are fine if you know when to use them.

The little flying disc that shoots bullets is actually pretty good, I do wish some of his moves were better but he's alright in my opinion.

Honestly his Gyro Buster drone (circle) should stay out a bit longer and go further, but the ap gain is fine. His Arc Wielder (triangle) needs a slight ap boost the distance is good. His Peace Maker (up Triangle) should get a small ap gain besides that its fine its a small stun that you can follow up if you quick. The Mass Inverter (up circle) should get a small ap boost and the effect should last a bit longer. I would be fine if this could combo to his level 1 as well as I think Jak needs it. His Needle Lazer (forward circle) needs a slight ap boost and should go a tad bit further. Other than that this move is ok it can juggle people and at the right distance help set up some other moves. It's not that his weapons are bad they just feel like they gain a very small amount ap. If they make a few changes he will be a character with a great moveset.

OMG I HATE FIGHTING JAK . . . His down and up square make him pretty much UNTOACHABLE in a melee situation, and once he reaches his lvl 3, it's pretty much over. I've seen some very good Jaks simply dominate with him

I beg to differ. Jak is my best character and I don't think he needs a buff at all.

The only move I think is useless is up O.

His up triangle is extremely useful if you know how to use it. As is the case for his lvl 1.

I use Jak as well and saying he has useless attacks is jumping the gun literally and yes his up circle is kinda useless his down circle on the other hand is useful.

Gyro buster doesnt have enough range or distance to actually be used along side anything. And as I said, the slighest tap or poke and its gone. Peacamaker chains to his up circle? I honestly dont think you've ever used his up circle, by the time the animation ends, the antigravity effect is already half over. Regular triangle doesnt gain any ap or do as many hits or even stun like you'd exepct it to. Mostly worthless.
