Hwoarang is back with an interesting … dressing up. Hwo will be classified as a pure dive character. His attack focuses on fast-paced CH and mid/low combo through his use of various poses. He forces the opponent to make a quick defensive decision or gets stuck in Hwo’s foul behavior. He kills people who try to overcome his pressure but compared to those who accept it with good defense, he has to hit his opponent more often than they do.
Hwoarang Strategy Guide
Hwoarang in Tekken 7 relies on his puzzling mixed game that forces his opponents to foule and punish them.
However, to generate a steady amount of damage, you have to face your opponent at all times because his range is a bit weak. Plus, his punishments are not the best out there and are also trivial. Another thing you need to keep in mind is that in his default stance, his crush is not high.
With his combined ability you can use d / f + 2, d + 3, 4, b + 4, Screw!, U / f + 3, 4, 3 as a beginner combo . His hard and damage combos require the use of his stance. For this purpose, let’s break down this combination: d / f + 2, f, f + 4, RFF, 3, 4, RFS, b + 4, Screw!, [3 + 4], RFF, f + 3, u / f + 3, 4, 3. For this combo you need to land perfectly f, f + 4, otherwise it won’t connect.
Once it connects, you will find Hwoarang in Forward Right Leg position. While in the RFF pose, enter 3, 4, and b + 4 to land Screw !. Screwdrivers! should put him in the Striker Left Foot pose. While in this pose, rush forward and enter 3 + 4 to return to the RFF pose. Now just enter f + 3 and finisher. If you manage to kill your opponent, you can use d / f + 1, d + 1, WS + 4, 4, RFF + 3. If you need something more damage, try [3 + 4], RFF, f + 3, 1, WS + 4, 4, RFF + 3.
