In Gotham Knights, perfect attacks knock enemies off balance and deal increased damage to them. They are useful for dealing with large groups of enemies, as they allow for hasty dispatches. Here's how to perform a perfect attack in Gotham Knights.
How to get a perfect attack in Gotham Knights
In order to perform perfect attacks in Gotham Knights, a perfect evade must first be performed and then followed up with a timely basic attack. To perform a perfect evade, press the dodge key the moment just before an attack is about to hit you. Your character will use a special dodge animation if you succeed, which then allows you to trigger a perfect attack. Like perfect evades, a special animation will trigger upon success, and you'll see the results.
How to follow up a perfect attack in Gotham Knights
Perfect attacks that land will often knock your enemy off balance, backward, or to the ground, opening them up to an assortment of follow up options. Grabs are a great follow-up because they allow you quickly finish off opponents, even if they aren't at the normal grab health range. If its not safe to use a grab though, ranged attacks work as solid follow ups, especially to enemies that just barely survive the perfect attack. Leaving them be and focusing on another, more dangerous, enemy is also a reasonable follow-up. Perfect attacks are great for relieving pressure of overwhelming numbers, because they temporarily CC (Crowd Control) targets that are hit by them.
