Basics: Gettin’ Jiggy with the Spins

Alright, peeps, we’re kicking things off with the ABCs of spinning strikes. This is your bread and butter, the foundation you gotta have on lock.



For Xbox Heads:

  • Rear Spin: Hit up A + B.


  • Lead Spin: Quick tap on LB, then roll with A + B.



For the PlayStation Squad:

  • Rear Spin: Nail X + Circle.

Quick Tips

Keep ‘Em on Their Toes

You gotta keep it fresh and unpredictable, man. Toss out a few jabs and quick kicks, play a little hard to get, and then WHAM! Hit ‘em with that spinning strike when they least expect it.



Surprise Attack, Baby!

Wait for that perfect moment, like right after a clinch or a takedown -> as they’re picking themselves back up, hit ’em with a spin move outta nowhere. They won’t know what hit ’em!!



Don’t Get Caught Slippin’

Look, spinning strikes are dope and all, but they can leave you hanging if you whiff. If your opponent is slick and dodging everything you throw at them, maybe cool it with the spins and keep it simple.



Peep the Pros

Take a hot minute to watch how the real fighters do it, or tune into some gaming streams. You’ll see exactly how & when to throw those spinning strikes for maximum impact…



Watch Your Gas Tank

Spinning around like a top is cool and all, but it chews through your stamina like nobody’s business. Keep an eye on that stamina bar and make sure you’ve got enough gas in the tank to throw down or protect yourself after letting a spin move rip.
