    Stryker is good at both, close and long ranges making him an excellent choice
    to counter any type of attack. Fast moves in addition to the excellent x-ray
    make Stryker a dangerous opponent. Mastering the character's timings and moves
    take time, but the below strategies should help you achieve enough confidence
    to try him out against human players.
    Using long range attacks as well as close moves is what you should be
    . Baton Sweep:         D, B, HK
    Works on Standing, Block Standing and crouching opponent.
    This move should be used in mid to close range sweeping the opponent off his
    feet. A typical scenario is when your opponent is standing next to you with
    one of the two outcomes:
    a. He is about to hit you
    As soon as he does, block the attack then immediately use Baton Sweep. The
    opponent will have little time to react and will most likely block in return
    expecting you to perform a counter attack like punching.
    b. He is expecting an attack
    Standing near you about to block expecting an attack. Preforming Baton Sweep
    will catch him off gard and send him to the ground.
    You can link this attack to a combo bu jumping toward your opponent and
    punching him followed by Baton Sweep.
    This attack is also useful as the opponent is about to perform a special move
    like scorpion's spear. Timing it right is key but so does all the attacks so
    Attacking from a mid-range closer to your opponent will most likely land the
    attack correctly as Stryker moves little forward once preforming this attack.
                                      . . .
    . Grenade Toss
    Works on Standing and crouching opponent
    An important multi-range move that can cancel the opponent's attack or
    at least reduce some health if he is blocking. As the name suggests,
    Stryker tosses a grenade that explodes dealing a fair amount of damage.
    This attack has two variations:
    a. High Grenade Toss:   D, B, HP
    The high toss is a long range grenade throw. Useful when your opponent is
    far away. Using this while your opponent is about to do his special move
    like any spear will cancel it dealing although you may still receive some
    damage. Also, useful when your opponent is in the air as this attack tosses
    the grenade high enough to hit jumping opponents.
    b. Low Grenade Toss:    D, B, LP
    The low toss is useful in close to mid-range scenarios where you opponent
    is jumping in or simply standing nearby. Also useful to cancel the special
    attack. Be careful of the opponents Xray when as you will most likely get
    caught in close range if he manages to pull it. Using this move after jump
    kicking an opponent that ios blocking is wise as he will most likely release
    the block after the initial jump attack coming from your side.
                                      . . .
    . Gun Shot:               B, F, LP
    Same as Grenade Toss but slightly safer.
    Firing you gun at the opponent. This move works in any range but is best
    used from far away. The attack is very fast meaning you can use this move
    even after your opponent initiated his special, in most cases at least.
    Timing from long range is what you should be aiming for. You should have
    enough time to dock should the opponent used a move. 
    You can hold the button and wait for your opponent to be in position before
    letting go to fire. Very useful when your opponent is in the air about to
    land. Make sure your not too close as he can jump kick you canceling your move.
                                      . . .
    . Roll Toss:              B, F, LK
    This move is very important and works on unblocking opponent.
    Roll Toss is one of the most useful moves there is. Upon executing the move,
    Stryker rolls toward the opponent and throws him in the opposite direction.
    The roll speed is fast enough to confuse your opponent.
    Works best from a distance or when your opponent is about to use his special
    move like ice or spear as most of them won't hit you as you roll toward him.
    Should you fail, immediately jump backwards, block or grab throw you opponent
    not giving him any chance to counter. Using this from a close up is not
    recommended ass your opponent will most likely be blocking.
                                      . . .
    . Aggravated Assault:    B+HP, F+HP
    Always use in close range preferably after jumping toward an opponent. 
    Make sure to time it right as you will have 2 chances of hitting 
    the opponent and performing an uppercut after it.
                                      . . .
    . Busted X-Ray:
    Best used when your opponent is jumping toward you or is about to attack
    in close range. A three hit attack that deals a fair amount of damage.
    6. History/Story                                                          
    Stryker first appeared in Mortal Kombat 3 followed by Ultimate mortal Kombat 3,
    Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Armageddon and now Mortal Kombat.
    His Story from all the previous games:
    . Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat Trilogy
    When the Outworld portal opens over a large city in North America, 
    panic and chaos rage out of control. Kurtis Stryker was the leader 
    of the Riot Control Brigade when Shao Kahn began taking souls. 
    He finds himself the lone survivor of a city once populated by millions.
    Ignorant of why his soul was spared from the Outworld invasion, Stryker 
    receives a vision from Raiden. He is instructed to travel west. He eventually 
    meets the rest of Earth's warriors and learns the true meaning of his survival.
    He travels back to the city he swore to protect. Kahn is unfamiliar with this 
    new kombatant and is caught off guard. Stryker defeats the warlord and saves 
    the entire planet. The chaos that consumed the city in the hours before the 
    invasion are gone.
    . Mortal Kombat Armageddon
    The fire of Blaze burned away Stryker's previous notion of justice.
    The power coursing through his soul inspired him to fight injustice 
    on his own terms.
    No longer would he allow himself to be confined by the law. He would 
    strike evil from the shadows, a vigilante who would show no mercy to 
    the corrupt. He went into seclusion to prepare for his one-man assault 
    on the wicked. Soon al the realms will know the name Stryker.
