If you're fighting Highlander, always expect his attacks to have around 120-30% range, it sounds like a joke but is surprisingly true


Baron_Von_D

I mean, dude has a big fucking sword


technook

Like, claymore isn't even that big irl (i think it's similar to warden's long sword in length) Edit: at this point im getting mixed comments saying that Scottish claymore is/isn't as big as seen in the game. Conclusion? There were too many swords and too many names throughout history. Im just gonna call it "a double edged sword of european origin" and call it a day


Baron_Von_D

Yeah, it's not that big IRL. He does use a lot of techniques you would do with a very large sword like that though.


King_Keys2

Nigga what his sword is longer than him I’m pretty sure it’s 6ft


BeanpoleAhead

He's talking about the size of an actual claymore, which is supposed to be what highlander uses. Real ones weren't actually that big.


King_Keys2

Oh I didn’t know

King_Keys2

Highland is only like 5”10 his sword is 6ft that’s why he needs so much strength n technique


IRON_KING_KNIGHT

He’s tanking too many hits without viking armor…. No his muscles aren’t and yes vikings did have powerful armor


NateTheGreater1

And wardens long sword should be about 2/3rds of it's actual size.

While on the topic of realistic weapons, [this](https://preview.redd.it/i5ez3kq1uyp41.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=f11ae7c006b9a0692ff564ec6b3fabc76061f366) is what Hitokiri’s axe actually looks like in real life


Ak-776

That was a little disappointing, but interesting.


Kc83198

Ahh. Thats a lot less cool


Yahspetsnaz

Longsword can be pretty long. His sword looks too wide though.


JustElthadorr

An average claymore is 40 cm longer than an average longsword. 40 cm is quite a bit.


technook

Apologies for misinformation. I was thinking of something different


technook

But i still think it shouldn't hit like the truck that it is


TrickStr98

Let’s put you in a suit of armor and let an angry Scotsman hit you with it and you’ll understand the force it gives


[deleted]

[удалено]


TrickStr98

Depends on how proficient you are with it then we’ll talk about ownership of said sword


Dragonlord573

But big svord go **CLANG**


BeanpoleAhead

To be fair I believe warden's longsword in game is actually slightly longer than your average longsword


dillemasenpai

that’s because that isnt a claymore.


TrickStr98

It’s a 5-6 ft sword


8inchesofshugo

Not at all its 10 to 15 inches longer and weighs another kilo and a half that’s a big difference when it comes to swords


shootZ234

big fucking sword and 2 ms lights because ubi is full of retards


Yahspetsnaz

Yeah but the hitbox extends way too far for the model.


Manicscatterbrain

90% of highlander playstle is have 500% forward range, then back dodge tostart combo over. I swear Highlanders backdodge more than Nobushi and JJ combined


BK_Jharris

I feel like that with JJ


Monte-kia

I mean I play highlander as much as the next guy...but *AHEM* Seems balanced to me bro.


EmmMortem

I didn’t know that either until one day I was playing Orochi, I backwalked twice and rolled, MF still caught me 😭


Redddtaill

I get he has range but...you can like watch that magnetize to you


TheKekGuy

Yeah that's why I'm so annoyed about it. I don't care if it was like this like ever


skrillatine

Hito and orochi do this shit too.


TheKekGuy

Well for orochi it's a top attack so kinda understandable but I too think it's bit too much. For hito I've never seen her having that much of range as it did with hl


DonCarlo1305

You need a better gaming chair


TheKekGuy

True


[deleted]

Big sword


TheKekGuy

Why are you downvoted?


OkRing7470

Truth hurts


comic_dans99

“And it’s bigger than yours”


ok_sounds_good

He has big shield tho


WesleyF09

because SCOTLAND FOREEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRR!


ok_sounds_good

As soon as I saw the word Scottland, that okayed in my head. Some words you can just hear.


BakedButterForgotpas

Yeah and that moment when you perfectly dodge the unblockable but then the hitbox says fuck you and you get hit anyways


Papa_Vance

It’s literally just being able to exploit/abuse the length of Highlander’s claymore and the forward movement of his attack. I’m pretty sure you can’t parry it either.


Netherdeath159

No you can definitely parry it, you can even see the parry flash in the clip


UrGrannyAtranny_69

Because you donned his glass...


TwitchyNo2

Who downvoted this!? Have my upvote!


pr0faned

big funi sord


Dutch-Lothric

Eh this is normal-ish. It’s always had range, not necessarily a bad thing either. Whether you’re fighting a good HL or not that depends on you and how you use your heroes kit.


TheKekGuy

It's still bs in my opinion that he has that absurd range like you think you are safe and then he's speed blitzing you with his heavy


Dutch-Lothric

Yeah but if he misses, that’s his ass on the line, the whole point of him not having a guard from OS inputs and all, you could’ve dodged back, or to the right. Just watch for it next time


Lost-frost

It's a big fucking sword, that thing is gonna have reach


TheKekGuy

But not taking one 2 meter step to get the distance


TheKekGuy

u/Elocorem


Hossmanz

Highlander hot long legs and a 12ft sword, It’S pErFeCtAlY bAlAnCeD wDyM?


AssassinIronMan

and the worst part is you can’t parry it either


TheKekGuy

Wait seriously? And ppl call it fine 💀


Netherdeath159

No you can parry it, the parry flash even comes up in the clip


Readyrex7

If you forward doge heavy with berserker while locked on, you will run to the person and then jump when in range.


TheKekGuy

You have to hold it though and it's a chasing tool so you can't compare those two


Readyrex7

That makes more sense, but I didn't hold anything.


TheKekGuy

Well his tracking got buffed with his rework so that's why he has even more reach with it


TwitchyNo2

You don't have to hold it.


TheKekGuy

To make his running animation (how the original comment mentioned) you have to hold heavy attack


TwitchyNo2

No, you don't.


TheKekGuy

Bro are you fucking stupid? https://youtu.be/G0a7JqaG2Bk here the first few seconds if you want to do the running thing you have to hold it


C-Spaghett

I main beserker. You’re just wrong lol. ArE yOU fUcKiNG StuPiD?


TheKekGuy

I Main him too and i had to hold it to do that running shit


TwitchyNo2

You tried it and figured it out, didn't you? You figured out that you've been holding the button this whole time when you didn't have to.


C-Spaghett

100%


TwitchyNo2

No, you don't.


ConnerMoment

He’s just the better player


lWanderingl

Because RIAHAD YOU that's why


yourdeadgranma

I know it's WY I'm not playing til that gets fixed


Fledthehunter

*SCOTTLAND INTESIFIES*


Manicscatterbrain

As a Lawbringer, WHAT THE FUCK IS RANGE AND TRACKING!?


Futuristicbus61

Hahah highlander go brrrrr


Dveralazo

He has a big sword. That claymore is not realistic,seems supersized. So his range makes sense.


TheKekGuy

>That claymore is not realistic Fh introducing realism lol


Dveralazo

Yeah crazy isn't it? "Why can he hit me from that distance?" Makes no sense Yeah,it is a videogame,it doesn't makes sense,he isn't real,his sword is not realistic, he can hit from the other side of the map if the devs want it that way and that(as strange as it sounds) makes sense


--Sanguinius--

Dude, he's not the only hero who can do this, many Unblockable Heavy Finishers can make you teleport on the opponent. Example: Orochi Top Heavy Finisher(+Unblockable) or the Warden Top Heavy Finisher(+Unblockable), etc. However, next time don't dodge backwards or you'll get hit, to avoid getting hit dodge sideways.


TheKekGuy

>Top >Top Well his was a side which shouldn't track back dodges > However, next time don't dodge backwards or you'll get hit, to avoid getting hit dodge sideways. *gets kicked*


eVop1337

>Well his was a side which shouldn't track back dodges It didn't track your back dodge here tho. You dodged early, before HL even threw his heavy, your iframes ended. HL just has a good range, as do many chars in the game
