How to uppercut in UFC 5
The uppercut in UFC 5 is now different from in previous games. Instead of holding down X+Square on PS (or A+X on Xbox) to throw an uppercut, players must use the R1 (or RB) button. This approach partially simplifies this punch and makes it one of the main strikes and much more variable. You can use the uppercut both in stand-up and clinch. Let's take a look at what controls are responsible for performing an uppercut in UFC 5:
- On Xbox: Tap RB + X or RB + Y
- On PS: Press R1 + Square or R1 + Triangle
Press the L2 button on PS (or LT on Xbox) to modify the punch and deliver it to the opponent's body. These controls are responsible for the uppercut in both stand-up and clinch.
Timely use of the uppercut, for example, when the opponent is leaning forward or trying to make a grab, can knock him out with a single blow. We recommend mastering and practicing this technique against bots during quick fights or in a training center.
