|Tekken 6 Tips & Cheats|
Tekken 6 is a fast and furious fighting game filled to the brim with challenging foes.
Attacks are broken into four different categories: High, Middle, Low and Special Middle.
Though it always depends on the character you're using, high attacks are generally going to be the speediest moves you've got. That said, high attacks are useless against characters in a crouching position. High attacks are also easily countered by high crush moves.
Middle attacks are often the most important in your arsenal. Your opponent must be standing to guard them, which makes them vulnerable to follow up low attacks and throws. Middle attacks can also hurt crouching opponent. Essentially, Middle Attacks are good for delivering fast, balanced hits with a wide variety of uses
Low attacks are good for hitting standing opponents, but often also leave you vulnerable due to their slow speed. They're also easy to counter. Middle attacks are good counters to them and every character has access to a low parry. That said, because there's a considerable upside to using them. Most opponents won't be guarding against them as much, making low attacks useful for jabbing and prodding your opponents when they least expect it.
Special Middle Attacks
Special middle attacks (Down, Left Punch) are most useful as a quick means of interrupting your opponent's movements and keeping them pinned down in one place. Though easy to block, their speed means they can be performed rapidly. As such if your opponent is pulling off some fancy pattern attack or if you're trying to keep them cornered, this jab is often ideal
