The Tention Meter
In place of a POW meter,
GG2 uses a meter called "Tention Meter". The tention
meter rises when the player takes any offensive actions (ie:
dash forward, attack, foot sweep, etc), but decreases if the
player takes any passive actions (ie:
backdash, back jump). When the Tention meter builds up, the
poalyer can execute special attacks such as guard cancels
and super attacks.
Faust's Dust Attack
Launches the opponent into the air for an aireal combination.
Unguardable when blocking low.
Dead Angle Attack
Uses some tention meter to execute Guard Cancel attacks.
Uses some tention meter to create a barrier feild. During
the faultless defence, no tick damage from specials will be
taken, and a distance can be created from theopponent as well.
When the tention meter is up to a level, each character can
execute supers (rapid combos, power-ups, etc).
One hit Death.
One Hit Death
By pressing all attack buttons at once and then executing
a special command depending on the character, players can
execute the One hit Death. While the Tention meter bar itself
will disappear once the One hit Death is executed(returns
in the next round), if the attack hits the opponent will be
KO'ed in one hit. Unlike Guilty Gear 1, the One Hit Death
only brings in one round and not the whole game.
Not all characters have been revealed yet- more new characters
are to be revealed in the near future.
