Hi all,

Not a SoR2 speedrunner, but I was playing through the game with a friend during our 25 hour beat-em up Extra Life event and something odd happened:


Wanted to pop in here to see if there's an explanation on what happened. Our best guess is that the jabs we're offset in a way that caused the enemy to juggle between them infinitely until death. Watched a co-op record and didn't see this used anywhere, but to be fair a lot of things were killed much quicker off screen.


This is a well known glitch since many years ago and the recent runs started to use it. I guess they call that the handshake of doom if i remember right.


That’s a great name for it. Good to know it’s getting incorporated.
