Tips for cole

7 replies 185 views Edited Nov 25, 2012
I've been playing with him for a while but I seem to get outclassed online. Can I get some advice on how to be effective with Cole? How to build his meter quickly, some good combos. I'm also unsure of how to use his circle moves properly.

He's an average fighter IMO. He needs to be quicker. However you can pretty much guarantee a level 1 kill every time by pressing left/right and circle to freeze them and then activate it immediately after. If don't do it straight after they can easily escape for some reason, it might be a bug, but im not sure.

Start combos with thunder drop. From there, amp swing usually works, but induction grind always works. If you Gigawatt Blade them, jump and Tether them. From here, either do a double ice barrier or an amp swing. You need to make sure the jump is just right, though.

Redirect Rocket is also a fantastic anti-air and projectile.

As for circle moves, use the freeze rocket to shut down a single opponent to combo them. If there's a whole group, use ice jump in the air. Ice jump ground is also great for getting people off of you. Ice Barrier is a great attack.

Love the redirect rocket. I find when I'm playing guys like Dante and raiden I just get stuck in huge combos and wonder if I can pull something like that off. What can you absorb with his circle shield?

I believe the circle sheild is for projectiles.

I should also add that if a player is running at you without dodging, hit him with a bunch of blasts and you'll get a nice stun-type thing. And use the blast to get people off of you for a second.

Try to keep up the pressure using a mix of his side circle freeze and shock grenades, the grenades can be good for keeping corners a very unsafe for characters that try to zone you out like Radec and Sackboy. Try to land a thunder drop or freeze attack to begin a combo.

 

His down circle has near instant recovery after a hit that it feels like you're cancelling from it half the time, this is pretty good for starting up a combo into his level 1 or 2 since it's a fast attack with a decent hitbox and good recovery.

I'm trying to decide if I can main Cole or should move onto someone else. I also like evil Cole but I prefer good Coles up triangle move.
