Extension Skipping


Extension Skipping is a technique added by Champion's Ashes. It allows players to skip the initial part and transition immediately to the extension of any two-part Weapon Art. Extension skipping allows for new true combos, mixups and access to more of your moveset from neutral.

For example, extension skipping with a Zweihander would bypass the initial forward lunge of Stomp and transition immediately into the uppercut followup.

To perform an extension skip, press L2/LT and R2/RT consecutively.

Forms of Stance, Charge and single-part weapon arts cannot be extension skipped.

An extension skipped move consumes the same stamina and FP as the full weapon art normally would.
