SoulCalibur has a long history of introducing iconic characters as guests, and SoulCalibur VI brings one of the series’ best guests yet with The Witcher’s Geralt. The beloved character sports a movest that’s lifted directly from The Witcher 3, and he plays quite differently from any other character in the game, even having his own gimmick. Because of this, Geralt can be a bit of a tricky character to pick up and play. Luckily, we’ve got a few tips for playing as Geralt in SoulCalibur VI.
Tips For Playing as Geralt in SoulCalibur VI
Geralt’s Dodge Is Super Useful
Geralt has a host of unique moves and abilities at his disposal, but one of his most useful is a quick dodge that lets him dart to the side. The moves can be executed by hitting B+K (traingle+circle on PS4, and Y+B on Xbox). This dodge is a great way to open up your enemy and set up combos, but it can be difficult to use if you don’t have the timing down.
Vertical attacks that your opponent launches your way can be dodged at the right moment with Geralt’s move, leaving them wide open to hit with your own powerful vertical attack. The easiest way to get the hang of this is to simply jump into training mode and pick an opponent that has easily telegraphed verticals, like Siegfried or Seong mi-Na. This will let you test out the timing on Geralt’s dodge as much as you need to, in order to really get the feel for it.
