Tips and Details

  • The attack does not need to hit for enemies to be debuffed. Enemies will be debuffed if they are in front of you, up to slightly less than the edge of the screen.
  • While still being called a "counter strike", the additional input merely has invincibility frames and will not activate when being hit during the provoke.
    • The counter strike will pass through enemies.
  • Enemies inflicted with Rage are indicated by red fumes.
