Tekken 7 Katarina Strategy Guide

Playing as Katarina

If I were to describe Katarina Alves in T7, I would say a character that thrives in high risk, high reward situations. She has high damage low attacks but there is always the risk of punishment. Her 4, 4, 4 string launches on CH and d/f + 4 is another CH launcher. Moreover, her d + 2 comes with a large hitbox and has high crush. However, as mentioned earlier, you need to be brave in order to try out Katarina, especially in a competitive environment.

The reason for this is that her damaging low attacks are slow and punishable. As for her safe low attacks, they are not many and are not damaging. I highly recommend learning her frame data to learn more about her best attacks and frame trap options. Apart from her low attacks, she has strong mid poke and strings that are + on-block. While she has a few homing attacks in her kit, they are no good. Therefore, if you are against an opponent who likes to sidestep a lot, you might find yourself in a little trouble.

Coming to her combo potential, one of the easiest combos that you can perform with Katarina is u/f + 4, 4, 4, 4, 4. If you need something a little more complicated, try u/f + 4, 4, f, f + 4, Screw!, b + 1, b + 1, b + 1 ~ f, HAR + 4. While it may appear intimidating, you should have no difficulty in connecting the multiple b + 1 inputs. For the wall combos, you can either go with d/f + 1, u/b + 4 or d/f + 1, 1 ~ f, HAR + 4.

Overall, Katarina thrives on her strong mid attacks, confusing mix-ups, frame traps that you can use to launch on CHs, and hard-hitting combos. On the other side, her low attacks involve high risk, high reward scenarios and her homing moves are not the best ones out there.
