Dashing in ARMS
Dashing is one of the most important moves you’ll need to master if you want to get far in ARMS. Literally. Dashing allows you to move quickly towards your opponent, or away when you see they’re going for a powerful punch combo.
To dash, simply press the L button on your left Joy-Con if you’re using the game’s motion controls. If you’re using a controller, press the Y button instead. When you tap L or Y, your fighter will automatically move forward. But you can also tilt the analog stick backwards, or tilt both your Joy-Cons backwards towards you, and your fighter with dash back instead. Dashing backwards is a good way to out-range your opponents, especially if you’re up against a slower opponent like Master Mummy.
You can also move forward and backward without dashing. All you have to do is tilt the Joy-Cons towards the screen or yourself, and your fighter will follow whichever direction you choose. However, movements will be a lot slower than dashing, so use these mechanics appropriately to suit the situation and outwit your opponent in the ring.
