Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

The Cross-up Kick

Anyone who’s a true Street Fighter player knows about this classic move called the cross-up. It takes a lot of skill and timing to pull it off, so here’s how it goes… If you’re just outside of sweep distance (roughly a short jump back), jump behind your opponent, and just before you touch the ground, perform a medium kick. Your strike will appear to not to even touch the opponent, but you end up hitting him/her behind the legs, staggering him/her just long enough for you to unleash a powerful combination or a super move. Practice, practice, practice! It’s a very powerful tool if you master it.
