Anyone have any good Zeus tips?

I'm trying to learn him, but he's a lot harder than expected, primarily due to his slow ass attacks. I play mostly FFA, with some 2v2 in between so tips for those modes are much appreciated.

Also, post any simple combos you may have for him. Thanks :)

stop hitting on squid.
Life is just one big hit confirm. No matter how many times you dodge and block it, sooner or later you're f***ed.

Well, obviously you want to be opportunistic. You can't just go in mashing buttons like you're Kratos and expect good results.

The charged lightning can wreak a lot of havoc when you get used to finding good opportunities to use it, or if you can catch someone getting comboed (and their attacker) in it.

always do da small hop and do charged side square in the air because doing it in the ground leaves you very vulnerable :0

also you are emmets worst nightmare when absorbing projectiles lol he can only hurt you by side square punch XD

um teleport alot on opponents but never on a good or evil cole who have fought many zeus and try to lvl 1 you when u teleport to them

side triangle while against a wall or and below middle ish ground

Triangle is fantastic, but use it with some caution - it is very punishable if you get predictable!

- When you use and charged triangle attacks, mashing the triangle button makes the lightening last longer.
- Use your decoy whenever possible to help you zone and to protect you from projectiles.
- Use Zeus neutral lightning bolt to throw off opponents. Both the ground and air versions often catch opponents off guard.
- Zeus square attacks give him super armour and are best used in 1v1 situations. His up square is probably his most underused/useful move amongst the beginners since it takes away a lot of approach options for your enemies.
- Use his dodge roll to traverse larger maps. It is faster and safer than his regular run.
- Use his teleport liberally, but not so much that it becomes predictable. Mix it up with neutral triangles and squares as much as possible.
