Not sure about that, but he can rapid fire arrows as far as radec sniper, which makes him a great radec counter, just shoot-shoot-shoot, then dodge if radec tries to snipe, pretty much forces him to come at you, or so it seems in my experience...

 

As far as the fleece I thought I heard it mentioned in one of the interviews, but I havent figured out what all his moves are yet so I'm not sure...

I know if you hold block and dodge with perfect timing radec will be shaking in his boots....

yes you can Smiley Very Happy I do it all the time, sometimes he will shoot a fireball back, other times he counters with his blades.

Kratos' arrows have no stagger effect (that I've seen) so they aren't very good at stopping Radecs.

Seems to me you can charge it for a stagger shot, or just rapid fire, not sure though...

Yes, from summer beta in the US, Kratos' Down+Circle move was the golden fleece, and you could use it to

 

a) Counter direct attacks while you're on the ground (you smash the ground and your enemy goes flying)

 

b) Counter direct attacks while you're in the air  (you just do an "X" shaped slash that sends opponents upward).

 

c) Deflect ranged attacks while you're on the ground (like Radec's sticky grenade). You just throw a golden fireball back at them that makes them fall to their knees in a temporary hitstun.

 

However, back in that beta, if you were in the air when a projectile was flying at you, you COULD NOT deflect it. You'd just do the X shaped slash described in "b" above. I'm not sure if that was intentional or not, but that was the way it worked then. Haven't played the current beta so I don't know if it works there.
