How do I kick?

#1The_XpertPosted 4/24/2012 7:14:31 AM
This is my first time playing SH2 on any system. I am enjoying the game but my inability to kick enemies once they fall down is really ruining the experience. Every time I knock down an enemy I mash 'A' over and over again but it doesn't seem to work. i think I have successfully kicked an enemy only once. Am I missing something here? It can't possibly this difficult to finish off a monster.

Kick em by pressing A. There's one thing I just learn tho.. If its dark you need to have your flashlight on or he won't do it. Looks like he can't kick in the dark... :/

That's what I have been doing. I release RT and hit A but usually nothing happens and I get bitten by those annoying crawlers. There has got to be something I'm doing wrong because it can't possibly this hard. Should I be moving in the direction of the enemy as I hit A or stand still right next to it? Should I continue holding the RT?

Well first of all im using the 2d controls and second, when they drop on the floor I don't move, in fact maybe try not to move and press A. That's what I do. Sometimes when you move after they drop its harder for some reason. just don't move till you stomp on his face.

And don't hold RT to kick.

I had problems with this too.

I think the most reliable method I found was HOLDING the A button. Didn't press RT. I think I probably pushed towards them with the analogue stick, but I don't know if that matters. Probably not.

I use the 2d controls too and not moving at all while mashing A seems to work. It still fails sometime but that's probably just due to poor game design.
