What is the use of Sweet Tooth's chainsaw?

9 replies 237 views Edited Oct 27, 2012

The air version I can maybe see using if I'm surrounded, but what is the use of the grounded? it's slow and builds very little AP, I've been able to find a  use for almost every other move he has except this one

Not entirely sure how that works since the grounded chainsaw is easy to stuff out.

I do it when I'm predicting a Sly Cooper player to do a ground pound or if I'm predicting someone to approach me but I have to time it just right because of how slow the startup animation is.

I believe it's more about space control...I would rather fall into a crowd with the mid air saw then position myself for the ground saw, the animation is to long but the knockback is well worth it.

I've actually gotten quite a bit of use out of it by using it in crowds, especially when I'm being relatively unfocused on. I've gotten it to hit all 3 opponents at once. Not to mention it makes a good counter in the air if you've got good timing.
It's time for a DEATH BATTLE!

I'm not a Sweet Tooth player, so I'm not sure if this would work, but how about this.  I know his skillset and I think this could be chained together, but maybe not. 

 

Forward square(shoulder,) down square(stomp,) up square(uppercut,) up triangle/forward o(machete or napalm,) standing triangle(chainsaw.)

 

Could this be worked together to pull off a combo?  I'd assume it'd be up there when it comes to AP accrual if it fits together.

his shoulder is a pretty big knockback so there's no way that the stomp would hit.

For the problem of it taking long if you keep pressing triangle while using it he sound it faster and it's pretty fast at full speed. You have to time it right when you go to use it but for me most people can't touch me from the side if I'm doing it and it has an ok knockback.
