Katarina tech

From Wavu Wiki, the 🌊 wavy Tekken wiki

Tech broadly covers anything that doesn't fit elsewhere, such as:

  • Notable tricks or niche uses for a string/move
  • Execution tips for a particular technique

If a section gets too long, it might be sensible to move it to its own page.

3-string Hit-confirm

Katarina's Crane Kick Combo (3,3,3,3,3) can be hit-confirmed after the first 2 hits (3,3). Doing so consistently gives you access to a safe, i14 mid-poke with good range and good damage, making it a very useful tool.

Confirming after 3,3,3

This confirm is easier to do. Even if not confirmed, it is only -10 and can additionally be cancelled into HAR to evade a potential i10 punish.

Confirming after 3,3

Opening beats from the Terminator 2: Judgement Day theme by Brad Fiedel. The interval between the 2nd and 3rd beats is how much time you have to confirm the hit.

The best way to hit-confirm the 3-string after two hits is to use the theme from Terminator 2: Judgement Day as a reference. You have enough time between the 2nd and 3rd beats to confirm a hit. You can do this by looking at the health bar (to check for decrease) or by looking for the hit sparks.

CH Low Wall-only Follow-ups

Katarina can get better follow-ups from her CH lows when she lands them at the wall. These are higher damage follow-ups and can allow her to balcony break or floor break as well. These are body-type specific, and can be dependent on the axis.
