Super Smash Bros. 4 Tips: How to Play Bayonetta

1 of 6

When Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS was initially announced, I doubt anybody would have ever imagined that Bayonetta would eventually join the roster, but here we are. As the Umbran witch joins the fray, so does her arsenal of attacks. The thing is, Bayonetta can be pretty tricky to handle, as her moves do require a bit of a different perspective on how to approach opponents. Fortunately, we’re here to give you the rundown on Bayonetta’s moves and show you the necessary tricks required to¬†dominate in Smash Bros. all while looking utterly fabulous.


Neutral B – Bullet Climax

Bayonetta Smash 1

Bayonetta’s standard B special simply allows you to shoot away from either the two guns in her hands or the two attached to her heels (she’s a trendsetter). One thing you’ll notice when performing this move, however, is that the trajectory of her bullets don’t simply go straight forward as they might in the actual Bayonetta games. They slant fairly upward.

As a tip, this move is better for stopping your opponents’ projectiles at a distance, as you might shoot right over the top of their heads if you just simply aim at them. Although, you can do just that if they happen to be recovering from being thrown off the stage. Try even tossing them around with a throw, as the upward slant of her bullets may land exactly where you need them to.
