ITT: our favorite combos/parts of combos

BA = basic attack (triangle on default configuration)
L = launch (circle on default configuration)


Arbiter's air L is really something:

- Arbiter + Rebellion:

(while mid-air) arbiter L > land > rebellion BA [hold] (idea is to cancel the recovery of the previous move with charging for drive) > drive



If done right (not hard at all) you'll be sending Drives into mid-air enemies, which I always thought looked neat.

To precede this, you can use Aquila's Buy In and group your enemies together so that when you launch them, you're Drive-ing multiple enemies as they're mid-air.

An alternative is to start charging Osiris' Raze instead (?; whatever the charge move is called; hold BA) after Arbiter's air L and then release it right before the enemies hit the ground (or opt for a full charge, whatever suits you) so that you can get right back into the air and go on from there.



- Arbiter + Ebony & Ivory:

- (while mid-air) arbiter L > release demon button > start holding down shoot button > gun special (i.e. inverse rainstorm) > arbiter L > release demon button > gun special > release shoot button



Goal here is to charge Ebony & Ivory to their fullest while still actively engaging with the enemy.

After they're being floated by the Ricochet Shot, feel free to do whatever you want (as I said in the topic title, these are "parts of combos" after all).

I've personally tried to Angel Lift up into an Aerial Rave (or w/e it was called; the non-delayed string) with Rebellion and then land > Stinger before they hit the ground. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get the Stinger to connect.

But had it been able to connect, there's would've been so many more options from there, e.g. charging for Drive after the stinger, or going into Trillion Stabs > cancel into guns > launch > etc.



Also, I'm sure you guys have noticed that shooting a single shot from Ebony & Ivory can act as a string interruption a la Royal Guard from the previous games, i.e.:

(with Rebellion) BA > shoot > BA > shoot > BA > shoot > etc.


If done correctly (not hard, but there is a bit of rhythm to it), you should be doing the first slash of the Rebellion Hacker string over and over again with only quick gunshots in between. This can also be done in mid-air, though you'll lose elevation (as opposed to just jump-canceling the first slash).



And of course, I'm sure y'all already know of this, but I find it easier to jump-cancel Helm Breaker into other moves (as opposed to another Helm Breaker), e.g.:

- helm breaker > JC > osiris L > JC > etc.

- helm breaker > JC > arbiter L > JC > etc.

It's the best combo in all HnS games.

It just happens to kill everything in DmC though. Other games have the AI get around it after a while. The ones in DmC.... they don't really learn.

No, Square Square Triangle is the best combo in GoW.

And Triangle Triangle pause Triangle is GOAT in DMC.
