PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – Zeus Combo Video by Persona

By on March 26, 2013 at 7:52 am

Zeus, one of the new DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, controls differently than most of the other fighters. He is rather slow and a huge target, and most of his big AP earners require fully charged moves as starters. Luckily, most of his attacks have armor on them.

Persona is here to show us some of the most effective ways to build meter with Zeus, but even with AP bursts it’s a bit hard to reliably reach level 1. Fortunately, any charged hit almost always leads into a level 1 kill. 

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale combo video showcasing what Zeus is capable of, be that old, new, practical or impractical.


Zeus may not be much of a combo character but he sure knows how to gain AP! He starts and ends combos quicker than the speed of light!

    There you go Zeus players. Now stop using the slow teleport to confirm a kill. it doesn’t work.

      The hold down-circle isn’t really practical though. Guardbreak Square isn’t either. I mostly go for Level 3 with Zeus, since he builds so much meter.

      • PeterPanPiss

        I don’t play Zeus but from what I see there is hardly any reason to use a level 2 unless it’s the final stock. Every time a Zeus uses a level 2 I breath a sigh of relief.

    If your gonna shit up the front page you could at least post a smash video instead of this feces!

    is there a property in this game for hitting characters from behind…like extra hit stun?

    • Pizzama

      I don’t think so.

    • It just acts as though you hit them from the front.

    I want to play as Isaac and Zeus but there’s no way I’m paying $5 for each of them. Were they a timed free download and I just missed it or were they paid DLC from the start?

      Paid DLC. The only way to get them free is with a code you would receive from buying God of War: Ascenscion.
