10 best tips for playing Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2


Guilty Gear XrdR2 Character Overviews (Who should I play?)

This video presumes the viewer has a basic knowledge of fighting game mechanics.

- What is the purpose of this document/video?
To help new GGXrd players choose a character when trying to get into the game. There are other resources such as Xrd Bits and LordKnight’s video guide, as well as many character-specific guides, but some of these resources are out of date and can be difficult to parse (LK’s video is ~2 hours long). Thus, I thought it would be good for the community to have a more simple, easy to parse resource. Think of these descriptions as elevator pitches.

- Additional Information & Footage
For an explanation of the terms used in this video, a list of notable players for each character, and links to the footage sources, see the script document. PLEASE read this if you're confused about what a word means or how I use it:

If you're still confused, I recommend browsing the Dustloop wiki:
Main page -
GGXrd Rev2 -
General fighting game glossary -

- Special Thanks
This would not have been possible without the help of many editors and contributors who know their characters much better than I do. I owe immense thanks to FaultyDefense, Pida, Memo, DrifterDane, PatTheFlip, Entelefuff, SLAM DUMP, Krackatoa, Waffle, Honnou, DNDKam, Bismarck, YungMoist, Vogue-Kun, Kizzercrate, GlacialReign, Mal/Malrodin, LordKnight, Frankentank, The Arm, Urchinrumbler, Babbaloo in the Shadaloo, Kyuukei, Daymendou, Loekkson, phil/sage, PepperySplash, Syniez.

How To Play Arcade Stick Effectively, Universal (Optimal) Arcade Stick Grip + Lever Philosophy

I've created this video to demonstrate what I (and many Tekken players) believe to be the optimal method of using arcade stick. I played the stick with an untrained grip for three years, but once I needed to learn more complex inputs (like Korean Backdash), I discovered this style which I think is universal across all games, not just specifically Tekken. It's just common among Tekken players because of Tekken's high demand inputs.
I strongly encourage all shmup players to check this style out and at least give it a try for a while. I think a properly trained method of playing arcade stick will really cut down on frustration and adjustment time for new stick players

Can I Prepare for Strive with Guilty Gear Xrd?

Link to the Guilty Gear Xrd main discord:
TLDW: Only get Xrd if you want to try that game specifically, since Strive is trying to move away from the core of prior GG games being heavily knockdown-centric. If you do want to try it, focus on applying concepts through the single player modes and not on winning against players or the AI.

It's great to see so many people interested in Guilty Gear with Strive's release approaching. Hopefully this video gives an adequate starting point on learning how to play fighting games/Guilty Gear on the right foot!

Hey again everybody, I’m back with another “For Fighting Game Players (???)”, this time on Guilty Gear. This is my favorite fighting game franchise, and I put a lot of love into making this guide. I hope you enjoy it. I try to divulge a bit more on the character overview in contrast to Melty Blood’s video because so much investment and enjoyment is on these characters and how they interact with the system individually. I hope you all were able to learn something from this tutorial… thing, because I know I definitely did along the way! If I made any mistakes, please let me know in the comments.

This video assumes you have some basic knowledge of fighting games, so some really core fighting game concepts are not covered (like, crouching guard as a default is usually favored instead of standing block, terms like okizeme, tick-throw, frame data, etc) Also, some characters in the overview I really can’t do justice (examples being Ramlethal and Eddie / Zato), so please check out some high level footage if you think you like the looks of a character!

Pattheflip’s “TL;DR: Play Guilty Gear”

(anything by pattheflip, really)

This game uses numpad notation, meaning directions that you press in the game correlate to their orientation on a keyboard numpad, assuming the character is facing right - for example, when I say 6P, that means the number 6 on a numpad (forward, right), and the Punch button. 2P would be the number 2 on a numpad (crouch, down), and the Punch button.
