Mayhem Brawler – Ver. 2.0 (Air Supremacy Update)

  • Release date: November 24th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
The most prominent of these new additions are “Air Combos” and “Air Special Attacks.” Characters will be able to perform unique airborne actions. These features will increase the players’ combo potential by performing stylish aerial attacks and finish off opponents with a devastating air special attack that burns a meter of the power bar.
It is time to punish those who threaten the officers of Stronghold with Payback! While blocking an incoming strike, pressing the attack button at the right time will execute a new counterattack and launch enemies in the air. Counters will open the door for juggling opponents or be the start of relentless air combos. Sweet revenge!
With new attacks to perform on the arsenal, there is only one thing left for combos to get even mightier; The OTG (Off the Ground) attacks. These actions will allow heroes to strike enemies even when they are knocked down and launch them in the air. This system will limit combo potential no more, making players the limit itself!
  • Additional notes: none.
