    Really simple When the instinct meter fills up press Rb+Rt to activate instinct mode. Then hit your opponent with 3 Rb hits and 3 Rt hits.

    This can be done in practise mode.

    Kol KavsDown voted, should use action rather than button location. Ex. HP/ HK. Or at least mention default settings

    Dakrkplayer2Kos Kavs guide writer must be old school. And used to just one controller layout.

    Archie TulipUp voted because it worked and there's only 1 solution. No need to use HP or HK in the solution.

    SweetArkhaneNo need to use? To enter Instinct Mode you need to do HP + HK...

    Got to agree with the downvoters

    Panthera oncaThanks and up-voted. I want the solutions to include the exact buttons I press. When I was new to this game, HP and HK meant northing to me. I down-vote solutions that use only that terminology. I'm pretty sure that 99% of all gamers do not re-map the buttons, RB+RT are accurate, concise and tells a new player exactly what to do. And if you are one of those people that have re-mapped the buttons, then you probably don't need these guides.

    SweetArkhaneI think using generic simple terms like HP and HK is better, because it works for every kind of button mapping, you just need to know that HK stands for High Kick and HP for High Punch (it's practically the same thing in all fighting games...).

    ChaijLol it's so funny that the peeps who left the comments trying to convince others to down vote are the only ones who have down voted this. This explanation is better since i have no idea what buttons are hp and hk or any of the other ones. I just know that A & B are for kicking people and that Xanax & Y are for punching people. So the way you got it with saying which buttons to press is very helpful. This gets 2 thumbs up in my book.
