    By completing this achievement you will also earn:
    Killer InstinctSurvival MayaThe Survival Maya achievement in Killer Instinct worth 14 pointsWin a survival match as Maya

    From the main menu select:
    Single Player
    If you are having trouble on higher difficulties, change the AI to Beginner by pressing cn_Y from the character select menu.
    The following tips are geared towards the Beginner AI.
    One of Maya's special characteristics is her daggers. She has moves which she can throw the daggers, at which point they will fall to the ground. To pick them up go to where the dagger is and press cn_LB.

    Combo Breakers
    If the AI has captured you in a combo, try doing a High combo breaker (cn_RSu or cn_RB + cn_RT). The AI will usually go for High attacks.

    Aerial attacks hit a good percentage of times, so try using these to start your combos. Try keeping your combos up until your bar, which represents your Knockdown Value Meter, is almost full and then make sure to end your combos (a list of Combo Enders is available in game under Command List). Use your Shadow Moves as well since they don't have Knockdown Value.

    While throws don't do much damage, they are unblockable, so if an AI is blocking to much, get through it. It is also useful to guarantee a hit when they have low health.

    Possession Rite: Summons the Temperance and Vengeance daggers to Maya.
    Upon activating Instinct, your KV Meter will empty, so use this to extend your combos.
    When activated, you can spam cn_down cn_downright cn_right cn_X / cn_Y since the daggers will return to you.

    SilentJay76Re-stating the the achievement description in a drawn out way isn't really helpful (and goes against the solution guidelines.)

    I was hoping for some help after losing with her twice in round 8. (Yes, I suck at this game. But I haven't had any trouble "surviving" with anyone else.) What are her best moves, etc.?

    SilentJay76Much better now after the edit, so I'll change my vote. wink (Took me 4 attempts to get the "survive 10 rounds" achievement in the end. Maya seems to be one of the few fighters where spamming random buttons isn't always enough.)

    TranierxI have a few other solutions like the old one I have to change. I sometimes got negative votes, but you're the first one to comment on why you voted negatively, so thank you.
