DEAD OR ALIVE 6

HOW TO PLAY

TECHNIQUE

Master the Triangle System

Fights in Dead or Alive are based on a triangle system: strikes beat throws, throws beat holds, and holds beat strikes.

TRIANGLE SYSTEM

When you land an attack of one type that beats another type, like landing a strike when an opponent tries to throw, that attack becomes a Hi Counter attack and does even more damage.

FATAL RUSH

When the Break Gauge is full, the last move will unleash the special skill: Break Blow.
The finishing blow can be cancelled at the end of a combo by pressing the directional button away from the opponent and the final S button simultaneously.

A Fatal Finish will induce a stronger Critical Stun known as the Fatal Stun. A fighter in Fatal Stun cannot strike, guard, or hold, and becomes an easy target for combos.

BREAK GAUGE SYSTEM
