  • The final attack of Consent Decree has a good chance of hitting head-shots, especially against tall units like Napalms and Heavy Gunners. However, the attack is likely to miss shorter units below the height of the slash.
    • The second half of the third attack of Consent Decree will open enemies for a Counterattack finisher if it hits an enemy.
  • Swift Retribution's last attack is a double forward whirlwind capable of lunging a fair distance and can knock down enemies when hit. However, it is difficult to hit thinner and smaller enemies without the melee auto-targeting turned on as the slash's hitbox is quite narrow.
  • Silent Acumen can be done with ease by simply holding down the block button while attacking.
    • The last two attacks of this combo are overhead downward slashes that can hit low-grounded targets like Infested Crawlers and have a good chance of landing headshots.
  • During Final Verdict, if the player pauses after the second slash, followed by holding the melee button for third slash instead of tapping it, the user will turn around, similar to Consent Decree's third attack animation but will perform the final slash of Final Verdict after doing so.
