This is probably just another little goodie that SB put in for Raiden I mean after playing his demo, I noticed how accurate SB made him. The blade mode slices during his 2 and 3 is cool, but this is even better. In MGR, Raiden can cut missiles while in blade mode, so this makes complete sense!

May 5th 2013: Got my Radec eviscerated by whaatxddd's radec in 1v1. Kmart, u better watch out.
Just learnt "Drake" and is now learning "Nariko".
Can anyone else also confirm that Raiden can cut through Radec's Level 1 with Blade Mode? I just tried it with Vita in practice mode and got nothing.
Just tried doing it in practice mode.
I don't know if my timing is off, but I couldn't do it with Blade mode no matter how hard I tried.
However, when I used his regular square attack during Level 2, I was able to "deflect" the missile. It didn't really look like I cut through it...my slash just kind of changed the missile's direction and made it hit the ground (and for some reason the explosion didn't kill me even though I was standing right on top of it).
The lag comment wasa joke . But on topic. my level 1 never been deflected. I killed raiden with radecs level 1 but never payed attention to whether they tried slicing them or not. Radec shoots 3 missles that spread out slowly so depending on how far they spread his level 1 can either work or not because i was able to destroy drakes barrel and kill him because the missles spread out far enough, that fact also gives you a chance to kill 3 people with his super ^.^
