As the 2.1 patch recently landed on consoles, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 enthusiasts have been busy studying the changes, and figuring out new attacks and possibilities for every fighter. Baiken is certainly a popular character, who had a rather weak entrance in her Xrd itineration.

Baiken received several welcome buffs in the 2.1 Guilty Gear patch, and Baiken community mod NitroNoodlez, recently streamed an overview of the changes. After setting up a bit, he starts by going over a few pokes and mentions the increased defense modifier at about 18:00 or so (which is 1.12 right now). At about 22:00, he starts to talk about 5HS, which has had its hitbox increased. It can lead to more damage because it hits airborne opponents. He shows some examples combos with it. NitroNoodlez then goes over her anti-air, the 6P. Her jS (jump Slash) also comes out faster. Another big buff is that Youzansen allows comboing on counter hit without spending Tension.

If you prefer to see a more focused selection of combos, I would highly recommend checking out Kellen’s Twitter timeline, where he posts combos regularly.
