Best Kor combos, strings, and combat tactics in Brawlhalla




Kor the Boulder was the head of a powerful army of humanoid rocks sent by the elven king to conquer asgard. After failing to do so the surviving golems were employed for menial tasks, destined to a life of servitude. Then one day, Kor found a two handed hammer with the engraved symbol of justice. Now using a pair of gauntlets and that same hammer he fights in the everlasting tournament, for justice and equal treatment of the golems.

Kor stats and best stance

Kor stats and best stance

Kor statistics favor strength and defense, reflecting his nature as a solid and well built war-machine. His dexterity is average and his worst stat is obviously speed. These stats allow a perfect use of his main weapons.

Kor special tactics

Neutral game

During the neutral game your main objective should be to achieve an advantage over the enemy. This advantage can be reached by either throwing the opponent offstage, thus gaining control of the stage and the general flow of the game or by doing enough damage to confine the enemy in a defensive position. Kor has some good tools to get this advantage. When using the hammer play around a defensive, bait focused stance but do not shy away from going aggressive if you feel like that the enemy looks weak in some aspects.

Neutral game Kor Brawlhalla

Use the neutral light or the side light to catch an advantaged opponent and throw it in a short manipulation combo that can end with an offstage throw. With the gauntlets the approach is the exact opposite. Get up close and personal and use the powerful aerial combat to govern the position of the opponent using short combos or single strong attacks such as the side air or the neutral air.

Offstage Game

Offstage is where gauntlets really shine. Use short combos and make the enemy bounce around walls to line up for a ground pound, or follow the opponent with a series of neutral and down airs.

Offstage Game Kor Brawhalla

You can also take a more defensive approach thanks to the powerful movement capabilities of the gauntlets. When using the hammer, exploit as much as possible the vertical potential of the weapon, abusing the recovery and the down air to reverse your position with the opponent before lining up a side air.

Edgeguarding

Edgeguarding with the gauntlets is a matter of reading the enemy movements. The short range of the weapon does not have great room for error. Play around dodge-reading and keep the enemy offstage using the down air. You can also do some limited chasing maneuvers and throw the opponent offstage using the neutral air.

Edgeguarding Kor Brawlhalla

The hammer has one big advantage. Range. Play around the side air of the weapon for medium ranged killing swings that will keep enemies offstage. You can also abuse the vertical capabilities of the weapon, playing around the recovery and the down air to keep the enemy away.

Kor Signature Moves and special tactics

Hammer nSig

Kor kicks the ground to make a huge boulder pop out from it. He will then smash the floating rock with his hammer. This signature is extremely powerful when used in short combos or in edgeguarding situations. 

Hammer sSig

Kor empowers the head of his hammer with a multitude of rocks before slamming it down horizontally. An awesome signature with a lot of force, very easy to hit in grounded situations and niche edgeguarding positions.

Hammer dSig 

Kor rolls along the ground before executing a swift horizontal swing of his hammer. This signature it’s hard to hit and should only be used after stunning an enemy or when certain to hit it.

Gauntlets nSig 

Kor grabs upward with his detached hand. If the grab connects he will then bring the opponent close to his body and punch it, making it fly horizontally. An incredibly useful signature in edgeguarding situations.

Gauntlets sSig 

Kor grabs the opponent before launching it horizontally. A pretty basic signature attack that can kill very easily, fits in short combos fairly easily.

Gauntlets dSig

Kor shatters the earth creating a pile of rocks that hits any opponent on either side of him. Good force but hard to hit, use it in a baiting strategy. 

Best Kor Gauntlets combos and strings

The gauntlets are a string based, low range weapon. They have great aerial juggle capabilities like gauntlets and hammer, while also having a sAir that keeps you floating like the rocket lance. This combination makes them one of the best offstage weapons.

dLight > sSig

Stun an enemy before unleashing a neutral signature on it. Easy to perform, can be used as a simple kill move when near the edge or on very low enemies.

dLight > sLight > gc > nSig

Incorporate a side signature into the standard gauntlets combo to execute a killing move. This combo will make an enemy climb before the throw, making it useful on certain maps. 

dAir > chase dodge > dSig

Start from the air to execute an incredibly unexpected down signature that can kill very easily. This combo can be hard to execute but brings a high amount of force on an unsuspecting enemy.
