A Delay is a pause in between swings during a combination. Most commonly seen in red stance, delays are often used to confuse opponents, tricking them into thinking a fighter is finished his combo. A delay is achieved by letting go of the primary fire key and waiting a couple of seconds before executing the next swing in the combination. As they move in to counter-attack during the pause, the next swing comes to hit them. While they can be used in yellow stance, delays are mainly used to change the timing of red stance combinations. Delays are not possible on swings to the left.
