Best Volkov combos, strings, and combat tactics in Brawlhalla
Discover the best combos and strings for Volkov and learn how to really take advantage of his Axe and Scythe.
The unnaturally long lifespan of Volkov the Vampire king was lengthened once again when he joined the everlasting tournament. Now he roams the halls of the gods,armed with a scythe, an axe and vampiric powers.
Volkov stats and best stance
Volkov's vampiric nature greatly enhances his dexterity, with a secondary focus on defense. Speed and strength are slightly lower than average, both sitting at 4.
Volkov special tactics
Volkov has a good array of weapons that allow a fair bit of diverse playstyle. Gaining the advantage is not a particularly difficult task, even if the strength stat is not high. The axe has quite strong base moves, and the scythe does not need high damage to kill.
The signature attacks are also quite good at keeping the enemy at bay. Play around short combos with the axe and try to throw the enemy offstage, or use the scythe to grab the opponent and juggle it in an advantageous position.
Playing offstage is a matter of using the floaty playstyle optimally. Volkov weapons allow for a strong and threatening offstage. Use the axe recovery and ground pounds to attempt a return to stage or to reverse the situation. The scythe can be used similarly.
Play around the sAir and the dAir to grab the enemy and throw it away from the stage. Use the light attacks, as the signature attacks are less reliable on offstage engagements. Using the gravity cancel for starting combos can be done, but be wary of risky plays when away from the stage.
Volkov has strong juggle capabilities, mostly thanks to his great duo of weapons. The axe is quite good at keeping the enemy away from the stage. Use recovery and ground pound to slam the opponent when he’s returning on the ground, or play around the down signature attack for a strong killing blow.
Single calculated attacks are easier than luring an enemy in a combo, so try to keep the movements clean and be ready for the killing blow. Use the scythe like in offstage, to catch the returning to stage opponent and kill with a short combo of light attacks.

Volkov Signature Moves and special tactics
Volkov starts floating and then unleashes two powerful axe strikes horizontally, throwing any enemy hit with great lateral force.
Volkov slithers toward an enemy and either releases a powerful downward strike or a fast side axe hit, launching the enemy in the same direction of the attack. This is a heavy attack, with a lot of force and will kill offstage enemies easily.
Volkov swings his axe diagonally downward. If an enemy is hit he will proceed to hit the opponent with great force, throwing it horizontally.
Volkov flies backwards and rotates the scythe with force, hitting enemies caught in the twirl.
Volkov charges up a burst of energy and then releases a fire surge. If an enemy is hit he will then teleport behind him and strike the opponent with the scythe, throwing him diagonally. (This move has active input, the enemy gets thrown in the same direction as the attack).
Volkov conjures a small vortex in front of him. If an enemy is hit by the vortex it becomes a grab, and volkov will proceed to then strike him with a strong horizontal scythe swing.
Best Volkov Axe combos and strings
