After the latest round of balance patches, many people may be thinking that Catwoman has been left in the dust in Injustice 2. However, this wily cat still has some claws.

In this new video from UltraChen, James Chen details a new option select for Catwoman that involves her two strings that start off with the light attack, or “1” button: forward 1, 1, 2, 3 and back 1, 2, down 3 (2 is medium attack, 3 is heavy). The option select works off an ambiguous cross-up that results in one of the two strings coming out, depending on where the player lands — with one of the strings having an attack that must be blocked low, adding a second layer to the mix-up if the defending player guesses the cross-up correctly.
