Special Moves are a set of advanced moves in Shadow Fight 3. They are a series of attack combo which can be applied to armors or weapons to increase their overall effectiveness in fights.

Description Edit

Special Moves are classified based on their rarity: Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Special Moves with higher rarity mostly tend to have better combo, higher power, or both.

Special Move can be bought from the store. Otherwise, they can be obtained from chests won in duels, booster packs, or as rewards for defeating opponents in main and side quests. If the players receive a move they already own, a part of an upgrade bar will fill up. When the bar fills up completely, the move will be upgraded to the next power level, increasing its damage. Better chest or booster pack may contain moves with higher rarity. As for the moves obtained from fights, players may get moves with random rarity; it is possible to get move with Epic or Legendary rarity, but the chance is small.

Using Special Moves Edit

Special Move can be inserted to an equipment's slots to have it activate in fights. There are two type of Special Moves: Weapon Special Move and Unarmed Special Move. Special Moves are restricted based on the type of equipment, for example, weapon special moves cannot be applied to armors.

Some special moves comes with an additional combo, which will be performed only if the last hit of the main combo successfully hit the opponent while they are standing. For example, Kenjutsu consists of 2 attacks. If the second attack hits the opponent, then two additional attacks will be performed.

List of Weapon Special Moves Edit

These are special moves that are inserted into weapons. Press (Forward) + (Punch) a number of times (depending on the combo) to execute a weapon special move. More than one special move of the same type cannot be equipped together.

When performing some special moves of Legion weapons, there will be a short interval occuring, indicated by the character glowing white. During the interval, any hit taken will not cause the user to lose balance, allowing them to finish their attack. The user will still take the damage, and the interval cannot protect them from Critical hit, Shock knockback, Shadow abilities, or boss' special abilities.
