If you’re new to Tekken and want an easier way to perform some of the game’s combos, Tekken 8 has a new feature that makes the game more accessible. This feature lets you fire off fantastic combos with fewer button presses.
This guide will explain everything you need to know about how to activate Special Style controls in Tekken 8, what they do, and how to turn them off.
What Are Special Style Controls in Tekken 8?
When you first load up Tekken 8, you will be offered the option to turn on Special Style controls. These controls come with some combos that you can pull off and do some good damage. However, if you’re looking to get into the competitive side of things, Special Style controls don’t give you the advantage, and you can’t deal as much damage with them.
That being said, if you’re playing for fun in quick matches or just trying to complete the campaign, these controls can help you do more than enough damage to succeed.
How To Turn Off Special Style Controls in Tekken 8
If you feel that you’re ready to turn off the Special Style controls or you just didn’t gel with them and want to go back to the original controls, it’s incredibly easy to make the swap.
There are two ways to disable this control method, but one of them is more of a hot-swap rather than a permanent disabling of the controls. If you want to disable them temporarily, you can use L1 or LB, respectively, or O if you’re on a mouse and keyboard. However, if you end up pressing the same button again, it will enable them.
If you want to disable the Special Style controls permanently, just follow these steps.
- Go to the Options menu
- Press Controller Setup
- Pick the Control Type
- Scroll down, and you’ll find Special Style
- Select it and remove the mapping by pressing Options
This menu also allows you to remap the Special Style controls to add other combos to the buttons and give them a new feel depending on your play style.
That’s everything you need to know about Special Style controls in Tekken 8.
