The main strength of Bayonetta is her ability to dominate the air and her excellent attacks in the air. She excels at putting pressure on others in air-to-air and her combos ensure that other players never reach the ground. She also has the ability to jump walls and cling to walls. Her only downside is being slow and most of her attacks are much slower than the other slow characters in the game.
She has four neutral attacks. The first two attacks deal 1.4 damage, the third will deal 2.2 damage while the last neutral move will deal 0.2 × 4, 0.5, and 5 attacks when you deal damage. damage and increase the number of hits by holding the button. The first three attacks were normal pistol punches.
If you finish the combo by holding the attack button, Bayonetta will finish the combo with up to 10 low damage shots. These shots also pass through the enemy so they will hit every warrior in their way. These attacks are not capable of knocking down so other fighters can quickly strike back with their attacks. You can hold and perform the ending animation by holding down the attack button after any neutral attack.
Her Dash’s attacks deal 10 damage. She will rush towards the enemy and use your gun to punch your enemies and take them down. Her activation is slow, but she will do a decent amount of damage. She will also slide forward a bit after performing the attack, so be mindful of the environment.
At the end of this move, Bayonetta will need some time to recover, which can be easily exploited if your opponent blocks the move. Sometimes if you are lucky, she will break through the block if it is not strong enough and reach the other side of them to prevent you from getting hit by a counterattack. Also, getting blocked at this attack is a bad idea.
