Gameplay:Ragna the Bloodedge BBCF

From BlazBlue Wiki


Ragna is a standard character who is strongest at mid to close range. He has many easy-to-use, orthodox normal attacks and special attack, he's highly recommended for first-time BlazBlue players.

At mid-range, make frequent use of attacks with a lot of reach, like Ragna's standing B and Standing C, as well as his Jumping C. These attacks are especially useful "pokes", hitting with the tip of the attack. Connecting Standing B into Standing C, then cancelling into Hell's Fang is a fundamental combo. If it hits, use Hell's Fang's follow-up attack to knock the opponent to the ground. If Standing C is blocked, in addition to Hell's Fang, you can throw in the middle attack Gauntlet Hades, or Blood Scythe, which recovers fast enough to let you start moving again first.

When close to the opponent, mix things up with the middle attack → + B, and low attacks like Crouching B and ↘ + C to break their block. → + B is a large attack, so it's a good idea to cancel into it with Revolver Action from Crouching A into → + B or from Crouching B into → + B. If the opponent closes in from the air, meet them with → + A, Jump A, or Jump D to counter. If you follow-up → + A with Standing D or → + D, you can start a combo.

When under pressure, C Inferno Divider is a good choice because it has a window of invincibility. Using it in conjunction with Rapid Cancel makes it an even more solid option. [1]
