Character Priority

Character priority determines the result of a number of small interactions, mainly same-frame ones. Unlike various other games where priority is purely based on static things like controller port or character selection, priority in BBTag will change multiple times through the course of a match.

Initial Priority Order

Player 2 Character 2 > Player 1 Character 2 > Player 2 Character 1 > Player 1 Character 1

Character number is assigned at the time of character select, and does not change even if you switch your order during order select. So, the second character you pick in character select is always going to be Character 2. Projectiles are always treated as having lower priority than any player characters.

Changing Priority

An attack connecting (hit or block) with an opposing character will move the attacking character to the top of the priority list. This includes an assist character's attack. Projectiles *do not* give priority to the user, even on hit or block.

Priority-based Game Mechanics

  • If two characters connect an attack at the same time, the character with higher priority will count as connecting second, for the purposes of P1 and Reject Guard (P1 of the "first" hit is used, character that connects "second" is pushed back from Reject).
    • Since the character with higher priority is hitting "second", they will also continue to hold priority afterward.
    • For true high/low unblockables, against a training dummy set to block everything and swap guard, the attack that hits "second" will be the one that does not get blocked.
  • The character at the top of the priority list is capable of performing an Active Switch with Reversal Action without needing to buffer behind hitstop. The input sequence for this is to input D, release D, then input A+D the frame after releasing D. Attempting to perform this when your character does not have priority will only result in an Active Switch.
  • If a strike and a grab connect on the same frame, the character with the higher priority will lose the "trade", regardless of whether they were using a strike or a grab.
  • If both characters connected a grab on the same frame, the character with the higher priority will get grabbed.
    • If the grab happened within the 14 frame window of a throw escape, then a throw escape will immediately occur. Otherwise, the character getting grabbed will count as being throw countered, and be unable to escape the throw at all.
  • There also may be a number of character-specific interactions that work or don't work based on priority.
    • eg. If Yumi hits both characters with her 214B~A, the Aerial Rave followup will continue to carry the assist character if they had a higher priority than the point character. The assist character will fall out if the point character had higher priority.

List of instant overhead attacks besides Crash Assault

This list contains all overheads that are faster than or equal in speed to fast Crash Assaults that also work on more than 10 characters

The following moves includes the jump startup of the characters:

  • Most characters' jump have 4F startup, where Merkava, Tager, Waldstein and Blitztank have 6F startup
  • You can only block at the 1st frame in the air, any options are possible after 2nd frame in the air
