UFC 4, the newest martial arts game from EA Sports, is finally out on PS4 and Xbox One. To get ahead of your opponent on the mat, you’re going to have to take advantage of every move at your disposal. So that you can cause huge damage in fights, here’s everything you need to know about how to do takedowns and block them in UFC 4.
Takedowns are a vital part of UFC, but you need to switch up your attacks. There’s not just one button tied to takedown, so you’ll need to learn the variety of options so that you’re not being countered all the time.
How to Do Takedowns in UFC 4
Below, we’ve listed all of the basic takedowns in the game, which all of the fighters should be able to do. Some of them require you to grapple to/clinch the opponent first, but we’ve noted the inputs for them in the table too.
|Takedown Type||Xbox One Inputs||PS4 Inputs|
|Single Leg Takedown||Hold LT & X||Hold L2 & Square|
|Double Leg Takedown||Hold LT & Y||Hold L2 & Triangle|
|Power Single||Hold LT, LB & X, then press any face button||Hold L2, L1 & Square, then press any face button|
|Power Double||Hold LT, LB & Y, then press any face button||Hold L2, L1 & Triangle, then press any face button|
|Ankle Pick||Hold RB & X, then press RB & B||Hold R1 & Square, then press R1 & Circle|
|Head Lock Hip Toss||Hold RB & X, then press RB & A||Hold R1 & Square, then press R1 & X|
|Trip (Lead Leg)||Hold RB & X, then hold up on d-pad & press RB & A||Hold R1 & Square, then hold up on d-pad & press R1 & X|
|Trip (Back Leg)||Hold RB & X, then hold down on d-pad & press RB & B||Hold R1 & Square, then hold down on d-pad & press R1 & Circle|
Some of them might take a little while to learn and weave into your way of playing but it’s important to not just stick to one takedown and repeatedly use it.
How to Block Them
The next step is to learn how to defend against opponent takedowns. You need to be precise with the timing, but you just need to press LT and RT (Xbox One) or L2 and R2 (PS4) to block an attempted takedown.
It’ll take a while to get used to the timing of it, but it’ll make you very difficult to beat if you learn to pull them off perfectly.
That’s everything you need to know about how to do takedowns and block them in UFC 4. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
