The Drake Barrel Topic

#1jellybeanmasterPosted 2/16/2013 10:41:43 PM
This topic is to discuss solutions to drake and that damn barrel. Jumping over it only does so much. Hes still free to do whatever afterwards and u still have to be on the defensive. So tell us your char and how you deal with DK barrel spam. So we can take him down a peg

I for one play Heihachi and i really cant think of a way to get a good punish on drake. The counter doesnt work on the barrel and neither does vSquare. I find that my best bet is to either jump away and try to approach again or block the barrel, block the AK gunbutt and punish with a throw.

Block and anyone with a gun can shoot the barrel from a distance.

Fight barrel with barrel

Did you try jumping then pressing forward circle so you'll go completely past the barrel? Even if you don't get a good chance to punish him when you do, after a while he might try something new and forget that he sucks.

U realize hes free after a barrel and can AK retreat and ur back at square one. If he duz the gunbutt u can punish but thats it. Who exactly do u play that can punish the barrel kick?
