Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a fast-paced fighting game that will keep you on your toes throughout an entire battle. One of things you have to look out for are throws. They are a good way to counter opponents who guard too much. You can also cancel throw attempts by the foe. Here’s the lowdown.
How to grab in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
To initiate a throw on the controller in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, you’ll need to press both the X and A buttons at the same time. If you’re nearby the opponent, your character will grab your opponent and typically follow it up with an attack of their weapon. Something to keep in mind, however, is that throwing too far away from the opponent will leave you wide open to strikes from the enemy. Make sure you time your throws well.
If an enemy is in the air too often, you can take advantage of that with an air throw. Simply press the X and A buttons at the same time while you’re in the air to slam them down to the ground.
If your opponent successfully initiates a grab, you still have a shot of canceling it. You just need to press the X and A buttons at the same time as they do when a red exclamation mark pops up for a brief moment. If they’re being predictable with their throwing timing, you can stop the throw from occurring with this counter.
Make sure you utilize throws in a strategic way and act inconspicuously to avoid them getting canceled. Keep your wits about you in this intense title, and you’ll succeed in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
