No toggle required to change foot speed in this timeless boxing video game classic
There are all kinds of ways to get around the boxing ring. Stepping allows you to cover more ground than simply leaning and moving the upper body. It’s not quite as quick for short distances, but stepping is important for keeping the fight at the distance you need to be at in order to win the fight. Today, you’ll learn the fundamentals you need to practice to learn to dictate range easily and naturally in Fight Night Round 4.
Boxing Video Game Controls For Foot Movement
Navigating the ring in a good boxing game should be intuitive while still requiring practice to master. On the left stick, use light pressure to take smaller steps for fine range adjustments.
Use more pressure on the left stick to take larger steps, but remember that momentum plays a bigger role in more drastic movements. Moving more quickly will hinder your ability to shift your weight relative to that same ability while moving at slower speeds.
While you can throw just about any punch from just about any position, throwing even jabs while long stepping is more awkward than the same punch thrown while stepping at more restrained rates. On the other hand, you’ll be able to throw punches and make adjustments quickly while moving at a walking pace. This takes some practice to get used to, but once you get it you’ll be dancing around opponents like Jersey Joe Walcott.
