It was discovered that the crouch stab does the same damage as the previous attack, no matter what attack was previously conducted.
This is often used to a great advantage by 'storing' the amount of damage dealt by a more powerful attack (such as a jump slash) and using a power crouch stab instead.
This allows for a greater amount of damage to be conducted over a smaller amount of time.
Note: An attack to be used for the power crouch stab does not need to have conducted damage. Only the action needs to be performed for the technique to take effect.
- Perform an attack to store. The attack does NOT have to deal damage for the trick to work, it simply must be performed.
- Perform a crouch stab on an enemy by holding down R while not Z-targeted, and stab by pressing B.
This will take the damage performed by the attack made prior to the action, and use the power from that in the crouch attack.
