The video goes over Slayer’s overall playstyle, as well as some of the variant options he has to change up his moves. The key to using him according to the guide is good use of Mappa Hunch and Dandy Step to close the gap, before following up with powerful attacks. The damage he deals can be temporarily increased by landing his throw, Bloodsucking Universe, which also restores a small segment of health. Finally, Slayer can consume 100% of his Tension gauge to execute Last Horizon, which can work as a powerful finisher.
