Killer Instinct Gold Combo Breakers

Short solution:

- Go to "Options" and set the difficulty to Very Hard.
- Go to Arcade and choose Sabrewulf.
- When you are being attacked with a combo press cn_left, cn_right + cn_X
- If it works great! The achievement will pop shortly after performing the combo breaker.

-If it doesn't it means you were being hit with a "kick" move and need to press cn_A instead.
- If you can't tell whether you are being attacked with a kick move or a punch move try sticking with cn_left, cn_right + cn_X and just keep trying.
- If you are struggling and would like more information and alternative methods, please read on!

Long Solution:

Every character has a special move that if done while an opponent is performing a combo will do a combo breaker. It is usually the same as another move except that you need to use a punch if the opponent is and a kick if they are doing that. For example Jago's combo breaker is: cn_right, cn_down, cn_downright + cn_X, cn_Y, cn_RB or cn_A, cn_B, cn_RT. So the same directions as a classic dragon punch but either a kick or punch depending on whether you are being attacked by a kick or punch.

So from this you go into arcade mode on a harder difficulty and sit and wait until you are being combo'd and try that. If you want to know other characters combo breaker moves you can find these in the Exercise 5 of the Focused Training Mode.

I had trouble getting this to work so I have another method that will put all the control into your hands but it will require a 2nd controller.

If you go into arcade and press start on another controller you can then try doing an Ultra Combo Breaker if you perform the Ultra on one controller and break with the other. You need to be quick but it's more possible because once you get the Ultra going it's all on auto and you can quickly grab your 2nd controller and do the Ultra Combo Breaker. I would also suggest going to options in the Killer Instinct menu and turning the game play speed down to 'slow'.

Jago's Ultra: (Opener plus Ultra move when opponent's health bar is low and flashing red) cn_right + cn_RT, then cn_downright, cn_down, cn_downleft + cn_A.
So a quarter circle from Down/Forward to Down/Back plus a quick kick.

Jago's Ultra Combo Breaker: cn_right, cn_downright, cn_down, cn_downleft, cn_left, cn_downleft, cn_down, cn_downright, cn_right + cn_RB.
So this is a half circle back, half circle forward + fierce punch. The movement doesn't need to be super fast so if it's not working for you try slowing it down a bit. This is also the same as a move you can practice when your super meter (I don't know what it's called but it's the meter under your health bar that will increase as you are attacked or block) is full. It will be a super dragon punch with fire and will take Jago up to the very top of the screen, obviously unique to his normal dragon punch type move.

Now to make practising this easier I suggest using the "all options" cheat and turning on the "Full Super Bar" option (Hey it is called a super bar!). To do the cheat you need to start the game and not press start. Once the character bios start playing press cn_back, cn_X, cn_A, cn_RSl, cn_A, cn_back. You should hear the announcer say "Perfect".

Just so you know if you are looking up other cheats and aren't sure because it's in the N64 controls, just use the cn_back button in place of 'Z' and any directions push on the cn_RSc.

If you want to practise normal combo breakers and find the moves for other characters you can go to "Focused Training" and choose your preferred character and then Exercise 5 - Combo Breakers.

Unfortunately performing a combo breaker in training doesn't unlock the achievement (well it didn't for me anyway). I wasn't able to get this to work in the main game because the AI wouldn't behave and I had already finished all the other KI achievements so I was probably a little impatient. When I found a way to do this all myself without the AI that was my preferred option and it didn't take more than 30mins of fiddling around to get this to work. Either way you do it, get your combo breaker achievement and move on to your next game!

I haven't tested all these myself, I only tried Jago's so if you find a mistake and would like to let me know please do! Also I am far from an expert at fighting games I just found all this while trying to figure out the achievement for myself.

Here is a video I found on youtube of "OldSkullKiller" performing all the Ultra Combo Breakers. This should show you how the move looks so you can practice it as a buffer, and so you know Ultra Combo Breakers actually exist and I'm not talking shit :) I had never heard of these until I was searching around trying to find out how to do combo breakers.
