Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 characters, for the most part, aren’t that difficult to pick up at the start. The real problem begins after learning their basic moveset and combos. There’s so much character-specific tech out there, it’s hard to know where to go next. But if your goal has been to learn more about Kum Haehyun, you’re in luck.

Voguekun, a well-known Haehyun player in the United States, prepared a “Tech Grimoire,” which is a slightly advanced guide to the character’s techniques. Don’t be afraid, though. As long as you have a basic understanding of Haehyun’s moves — which are player-controllable projectiles, and several kick attacks — you’ll gain a lot from watching this. Voguekun explains the basic flow of okizeme and how to avoid mistakes in setplay. He also goes through confirming into the infamous Shiinken loop.

The video closes out with some very useful recommendations for using the projectiles in neutral, and how to deal with some specific characters — as well as an unblockable setup. Check it out below.
