Blitzball: Volley Shot

#1AnakeriePosted 5/3/2009 8:22:48 AM
I've played the game through many times, and I always end up with an unbeatable Blitz team, but I have never been able to learn Volley Shot. I don't think I've even seen anyone on another team use it so that I could learn it. Does anyone have any pointers or tips for getting this tech?

Let them score or use a shot at the goal for a change xD

I have the same problem, my team is overpowered and therefore I can't get to see some offensive techs in action in order to learn them, the opposite team always suck (in comparison). Just put your attackers into defending and vica versa, your team will have horrible defense, don't equip any (defensive) techs and they'll eventually land some shots on your goal.

I don't think I've even seen anyone on another team use it so that I could learn it.

If you sign a player who already has a tech you want to learn, equip that tech and play him, the tech should "spread" throughout other players and teams. If you are of sufficient scout level, you can see the techs a player has before you sign them.

Blitzball database FAQ has data on who starts with what techs
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/197344/19103

from that FAQ:

Abus
====
Location: Luca Harbour, Number 3 Dock
Starting Team: Luca Goers
Starting Contract: 17 matches
Salary: 120
Key Techniques: Grip Gloves, Venom Tackle 2, Venom Shot 3
Starting Techs: Venom Shot, Venom Tackle, Volley Shot


Ctrl-f volley shot, and you should find other players who have that tech.

Third place Tournament prize is the easiest way of learning Volley Shot.

Find one of your players with 1-3 more PA than an enemy player has BL.

Then you pass to your player closest to the Volley Shot player, enemy blocks it, you fumble, easy Volley Shot.

Assuming you can get it to activate, that is.

^ Or just get some1 with a terrible PA pass the ball to another player in your goal next to the other team player that can use Volley Shot. I think I used Tidus or Keepa to learn Volley Shot for Datto.

That would work as well, but in the higher levels that becomes less possible.

I'm not sure if there's a player with a consistency low PA stat.

Thank you, everyone. I'll try it with Basik Ronso. But I better do it soon because the Ronso team decided that they stink and fired all of their ronsos. I think Basik is the only one left!

(I'm a loser, but for some reason reading Basik Ronso always makes me giggle. I keep thinking "Basic Ronso" like he's just a generic one.)

Wedge would be the best choice up to level 45.

Easy way to get AI to use Volley Shot:

Have your defender lure the AI forward with Volley Shot close to your goal. Then have your defender pass to Wedge, who should be your forward, and have Wedge pass back to the defender. The defender will fumble for sure, and if you're lucky, then the AI forward will use Volley Shot. Wedge has a whopping 3 PA up to level 20, 4 PA up to level 30, and 5 PA up to level 35.
