Steve Fox Tips And Tricks

Tekken 8: Steve Fox Guide

Finally, before we call this match, we wanted to offer some closing tips and tricks to help make learning Steve Fox a bit easier. While he will still be much more complex than the majority of the cast, these tips will hopefully give you some things to implement into your offense to provide you with a leg up on your opposition.

During Steve's Lionheart Stance (u/b 3), pressing 1+2 will cause him to perform an unblockable attack, forcing your opponent to sidestep it or take severe damage that can lead to a full combo on impact. This move is deceptive and very effective during the lower ranks, so implementing it into your game plan is a must.

Also, pressing 1 from his Lionheart Stance (u/b 3) will have him unleash a tracking mid that can be very hard to avoid or block, making this Stance one of his better ones in the game. Learning these two moves and the others highlighted above will go a long way to get you on track to learn and master Steve Fox in Tekken 8!
