How do I perform a guard impact?
In the previous Soulcalibur games, guard impacting was performed by pressing
▷G (forward and guard;
6G, in fighting game direction terminology).
In Soulcalibur V, this was removed. Guard impact still exists, but it uses the soul gauge, and apparently requires a different combination (likely involving
A+B+K, since it uses the soul gauge). What is that combination?

Guard impacts are performed with the combination
4A+B+K) and takes half of a soul gauge meter, regardless of whether or not they hit.
Additionally, certain characters have combinations that perform a guard impact. For example, Siegfried’s
B+K stance transition includes a guard impact. You’ll be able to recognize these by their green glow as the animation occurs.
In scV there is also a “just guard”, performed by tapping block extremely close to when the opponent strikes as well as the aforementioned “guard impact”, which is the only special guard that takes up 25% special meter.
