1. Guard dashing
*Note that Anthurium's Guard Dash does not block attacks, and moves the mech backwards instead of forwards.
Pro - can be useful when you're already blocking but need to get the hell out of the way of something else (probably coming from a different angle which won't be blocked.
Pro - can be used to inch towards someone who just shot at you without dodging.
Con - don't remember if this uses boost gauge. I don't usually use Guard Dash.
Worth mastering? Iunno.

2. Instant attack
*Instant attack applies to melee combat ONLY, meaning it has no function on Anthurium.
Pro - instant melee attack without weapon switch time. Note that the attack itself is not instantaneous, it just removes the weapon switch time.
Pro - IIRC, can be used to interrupt your own movement to start an attack.
Con - Uses boost gauge.

Worth mastering? Yes. I should use it more.

3. Transformation mechs (not talking about shield surfers)
Pro - fuck yes.
Con - Both have rather low health.

Remember, when flying, jump/boost makes you rise, block makes you descend.
Remap your keys to allow three buttons at once. This is my setup:
Z - Target
X - Jump
C - Block
A - Main Weapon
S - Melee
Q - Alt 1
W - Alt 2
E - Alt 3

4. Catching/baiting
Never use up your fuel completely. Always leave a little bit to dash away to get the full effect of an attack/dodge incoming doom (alt 3) blasts.

Rather than double posting, use the edit function.

Mastering: Practice/timing.

Shield dash: Hold down Block and press your main weapon (not melee)

Instant Attack: Hold down Block and press Melee. (USES EX GAUGE)

1 question, does the guard dash actually...well, guard? I've tried more than once only to end up being shot...only thing that seems to block while moving towards the target is Blackselena's shield bash.
But thanks for the instant attack combination, I never noticed the mech attacking though, just canceling whatever it was doing (including the stunned state), I used it against melee spams.

Yes, it does block. However, for many mechs, it's a pretty short period.
