Update: Steam's Autumn sale is going on now offering some great fighting game deals and season pass discounts which we've added to the story along with Razer's Black Friday deals.

Here's how to guarantee a self-destruct punish with Android 16 against guard cancelling in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Android 16's self-destruct — also known as "the final power that shouldn't be used" — is an extremely powerful, yet difficult to land attack in Dragon Ball FighterZ. It costs three bars of meter and will reduce Android 16's health to one point upon success. In return, an opponent's character will take 50,000 damage in a game where every character normally has 10,000 life.

However, its absurd start up time makes it nearly impossible to actually punish anything with the self-destruct super on reaction. Interestingly enough, Rooflemonger (credit to OKLimbo) has detailed a way to punish guard cancelling with this technique.

Universal fuzzy snapback setups are in Dragon Ball FighterZ — Rooflemonger shows us how to perform them

A fuzzy guard occurs when you switch from blocking low and high very quickly. Essentially, you're trying to account for a quickly timed low and a slower overhead.

In a certain sense, you're blocking lows and overheads at the same time... though not really. Essentially, it's a defensive maneuver used in traditional fighting games that improves defense against mix-ups. Rooflemonger details the use of them in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
