Best Fighters in Tekken 7 Details
You saw the above list of players, but do you know them? Take a moment to appreciate a few characters that are highly ranked. If you are a fan of this sport, you might find out more details on one of your favorite ones. Do not worry if you are not a fan. It is always good to study the characters to know what to expect of the game in terms of fierce encounters.
Steve Fox is one of the best figures in Tekken. Why does he deserve a special mention? At the beginning of the game, he was not great. However, it got upgraded with every game edition, and fans now love him. He is one of the most voted characters of this arcade game. Another interesting character is Hwoarang, who is not far away from Steve on the popularity scale.
The next character we are going to talk about is King. If you are looking for a mask-wearing wrestler, he is your guy. King has some great fighting moves that might take you by surprise. If you are not a pro player, you might get into trouble if you run over him. However, we are going to give you a hand if the situation arises. Below we have a short list of his best moves:
- U/F +1+2 adds after the range, strength
- SS3+4 puts King on the ground. Plus, it can offer an average punishment for avoiding a kick; however, it takes away half of your entire well-being afterward.
- B+1 is a CH stuns
- FC d/f+2 has a massive selection, plus the punishment will be amusing.
If King combines any of the above moves with a series of throws, one word: amazing.
Why Law? Law is a great character that offers a wide range of capabilities and immense selection. On top of that, he has the best 14F release. All that is needed are some specific motions, and he can rule the game. If you ever encounter him, play safe and keep your eyes open all the time. If you lack attention, he can easily use that against you, even if it seems that you might win. Beware of Legislation!
The next character in the line is Paul. All fans were probably expecting us to mention him in our listing, and for good reasons. He is one of the best at being driven by rage from his 16. Another thing worth mentioning about Paul is that he assess his competitors. After doing so, he delivers the right punishment. Be careful with him. All he needs to do is use a few hits, and his opponent is out of the game. Paul is known to punish move, which means if he has +2, and a 14-frame launcher, and B+3, he will be the fastest on the cube.
Devil Jin is not one of the highly ranked characters. He is part of the B-Tier; however, he is also has a personality in the game. In short words, he is a nice character, maybe even decent. Judging by the previous game editions, Jin has always had some weaknesses.
However, he does have some moves, and we are going to share them with you.
- F, N, D, D/F+2 (EWGF) H i14~ +15 makes him the best launcher and the sharpest
- 1,1>2 H, H, M i10 +1,-1,-17 makes great for punishments
- D/B+2 l (TC) 22 RC -13 aims at a strong low punch with a big crush
Therefore, Devil Jin made it to our Tekken 7 grade list.
Kazuya Mishima is another character that improved over time. To be more specific, after the second season. At the beginning of the game, he was not as strong. If you are a player that desires more flexibility and kind nature, Kazuya might not be your best opponent. Some of his moves can take any down, so play cautiously.
As you might have noticed, our list is not very long. If you are a fan of this sport and did not see your favorite character on our list, don’t be disappointed. Some of those characters improved over time, so maybe one day, you will see them on the top. Many players have flaws; therefore, first, they need to change.
