Hey there, I have been watching a streamer called Tru3Talent and he often used a variety of characters but he has been playing with raider a lot. Something I noticed was that he sometimes says 'free hit' or something once he manages to throw someone into a wall or parry a light attack. I main PK and I am unsure of these advanced mechanics. Could someone please tell me some of the 'free' hits that PK can do (if any).

Thank you, much appreciated - PackingMoney.

Well I can't help you with the PK, but free hits he is talking about are hits that were caused when opponent was stagerred. For example when enemy falls down due to lack of stamina, then you can hit him for free - he has no chance of defending.

He also calls hits "unsafe". It means the attack can be parried, then counterattacked. For example, when you guard break after a parry, the guard break is uncounterable, so it's basically free. Then you follow up with another free attack.

I hope that helps.

Generally;
Throws into a wall = Free hit.
Light parry = Free hit.
Knockdown = Free hit.
Zone-attack is often a free hit because of how obscenely fast it is. Feint one way and zone-attack, very few are going to beat it.

Hijacking this thread with a noob question of my own...
What does "tech" mean? I see that word used often regarding this game and can't figure out it's meaning by the context.

"tech" is fighting game term and has the following meanings:

1. when used in a context like: "Character X has this tech where he can...." means that character has a tool or mechanic unique to that character
2. tech a throw - in this game it refers to counter guard break

Teching a Guard-break would be countering it by Guard-breaking after they do. Basically, the right button at the right time.

I am playing zerker a decent amount recently, is there anything he can get for free other than the top heavy when he throws someone into something?
