Executing a GRAD

#1midsizelebowskiPosted 2/15/2014 2:23:53 PM
I hit the double button prompt, time slows down and I see the white japanese character flash in the upper right corner of the screen, then enter blade mode.

I slice through the red square in blade mode, but there's no prompt for zandatsu.

Is execution different from zandatsu? Should I be looking to do something else after pressing the circle + triangle execution prompt?

It just seems to be iffy on GRADs. I get that too. Sometimes the red box doesn't appear, sometimes Raiden lands almost immediately so I don't have time to do it, sometimes I hit the box and the zandatsu prompt doesn't show.

Grad Zandatsu is a bit weird indeed; sometimes due to a corner being closeby or something else Raiden will go a bit to the right or left in mid-air making the Zandatsu impossible.

Also any Grad with a boss-meter can't be Zandatsu'd.

Sometimes it wont even cut for me. Like he's using the machete when he's expecting to use muramasa.

I recommend just slashing at it with a fully-upgraded Armor Breaker.

You'll get the slash prompt when your current attack breaks the armor housing the Repair Unit.
