Volkov stats and best stance

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 

Neutral game

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.

Volkov neutral game Brawlhalla

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.

Offstage Game

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.

Volkov Offstage Brawlhalla

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.

Edgeguarding

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.

Volkov Edgeguarding Brawlhalla

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

Axe nSig

Volkov starts floating and then unleashes two powerful axe strikes horizontally, throwing any enemy hit with great lateral force.

Axe sSig

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.

Axe dSig

Volkov swings his axe diagonally downward. If an enemy is hit he will proceed to hit the opponent with great force, throwing it horizontally.

Scythe nSig

Volkov flies backwards and rotates the scythe with force, hitting enemies caught in the twirl. 

Scythe sSig

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). 

Scythe dSig

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

The axe is a great weapon with important aerial capabilities mostly due to the excellent recovery and sAirs of the weapon. It can be played offensively, searching for gimps and juggling opponents in the air with dAirs and nAirs.

sLight > nSig

Variation of the standard axe opening. Useful for killing horizontally. Perform ground attacks for a surprising and quick damage burst.

dAir > nSig

Standard signature combo when playing floaty. Catch the grounded enemy with a down air and then execute a neutral signature for a horizontal kill.

nLight > sSig

Use the neutral light to put the enemy in position for a devastating side signature. Such a heavy attack carries a lot of weight, and will often result in a kill on injured opponents.
