Combat styles in Absolver allow players to customize the way their Prospect fights. These styles are based off of real-world fighting techniques.

There are 3 styles which you can choose from at the beginning, and one which can be unlocked further in the game. Sloclap has announced their intention to add more in the future.

Starting Styles[edit | edit source]

Forsaken[edit | edit source]

Forsaken is a balanced and powerful style based on Kick boxing . It's special ability is Parry. Users of the Forsaken style are able to counter moves, briefly stunning their opponent.

Khalt[edit | edit source]

The Khalt method is strong and defensive, with a special ability called Absorb. This allows Prospects to absorb the knockback from attacks and convert the damage into chip damage. If you successfully counterattack, you regain this health and any other white damage.

Windfall[edit | edit source]

The Windfall style is based on the Ba Gua Zhang's combat style. This style is agile and quick to react. It's special ability is called Avoid. Avoid allows Prospects to dodge left and right, as well as jump over and crouch under attacks, opening your opponent to a counterattack.

Unlockable Styles[edit | edit source]

Stagger[edit | edit source]

This odd style is unpredictable and powerful, based on Drunken Boxing. It has a special ability which provides a set of moves with charging or evasive properties (1 charge, left/right strafing and a backward evading attack), allowing users of the style to simultaneously attack and defend. These moves don't produce stamina when successfully countering attacks like other styles, but are treated as attacks and can use both feints and the flow mechanic.
