General Tactics[edit]

Team positioning[edit]

Point[edit]

Yes. As a pressure character Android 18 functions very well with assists. It is easier to get away with frametraps if they are expecting you to use assists to extend your blockstrings.

Mid[edit]

Decent in mid, assist improved after the most recent balance patch.

Anchor[edit]

She can make use of the meter. Her level 3 is easy to combo into, especially when you have an extra bar to vanish into it.

Picking Teammates[edit]

She does best with teammates that have offensive assists that can help back up her pressure game and condition the opponent to block.

Blockstrings[edit]

  • 2L > 5LL > 2M > 5M > 5H > S > 214L > Assist

Basic blockstring loop. If you use more than one S you risk being super dashed. Usually follow up with dragon rush or IAD into high-low mixup / command grab.

  • 2L > 5LL > 2M > 5M > 5H > S > 214M

Frametrap blockstring loop. Same follow ups. Saves an assist and gets a free mixup on a passive player. Can be punished but only during startup. Use sparingly and at different points in the block string if at all.

  • 2L > 5LL > 2M > 5M > 5H > S > 236S > M+H (Vanish) > 5LL > etc.

Spend meter to safely extend pressure without using an assist. Note: After vanish 2L > 5L will not connect.

  • 236S > M+H (Vanish) > 5LL > etc.

Spend meter to start a blockstring from a distance.

  • 2L > 5LL > 2M > 5M > 5H > 2S

Another frametrap. Can be countered by 2H but only if they do it early. If they block the 2S you will have frame advantage.

  • 2L > 5LL > 2M > 5M > 236M or 236H

Easiest way to put command grab into the middle of a string.

  • 2L > 236M or 236H

Must be close. Classic tick throw that most characters do not have access to.

  • 2L > 236L

Best way to step on somebody's head. Less damage but a more satisfying animation and it comes out faster. 236L does not work after 5M because of short range.
