    I think his design is a little lacking. He looks like something you'd fight three of in a row in a story mode.

    You revive a game with a Fulgore, then create a char and name it Kilgore

    Al Gore confirmed for secret boss

    so what i can gather from Kilgore is that he heats up his mini guns but doing a move or special that uses them and then holding down the HP button prolongs it. So like say you do Kilgore's grab, he smacks you into the air and automatically does 2 shots as you're in the air, holding down the button makes him fire off more shots while also heating up your guns. Once at full heat your guns will do Cinder like burn damage as well as increase the combo potential at the cost of safe range, your phase dodge teleport move, and what i think to be you take more damage... i think.

    Kilgore can cool off his guns by either not using them for a full 8 seconds, manually cooling down by spending a bar of shadow [this counts as a shadow cancel so you can do backwards frw. Hp Shot Spread into Cool off into his gattling rush for a confirm combo] or doing his Cool Off Ender which acts sorta like TJ combo's reset ender only not as quick.

    Kilgore has also got missiles which he can either just shoot off normally or make a track to position kind where he selects a spot on the stage and the missiles will go that location, even spinning around off camera to come up behind. It's a great defense tool for they can still hit the opponent even if Kilgore is getting comboed.

    Ontop of all of this Kilgore seems to have three command normals, one where he shoots both of his miniguns forwards, one where he does a sweeping upwards arch with his shots, and one where he shoots at the ground. The Ground shot move is interesting for it OTGs the opponent. the only other character who can do that is RAM [and Tusk if you really want to count his skewer as an otg even though he can't follow it up unless he gets a counter breaker]. Still unsure if Kilgore can combo after that down shot into a Shadow Gattling Upper, but hey we know that he can tack on some extra damage at the end of a combo.

    Kilgore is 10 dollars. Half goes towards a community fund to help fund tournaments during the 2017 season. Any Fulgore releated purchases also go towards KI community fund.

    They showed a clip that reveals ultimate's are coming back. Jago doing a spirit bomb. I'm sure someone will upload the clip soon.

    Frankly, I'm not getting Kilgore because 10 dollars is ludicrous.

    Edit: Ultimate

    10$ for what is essentially a remix character is sort of a slap in the face.

    Like this is fucking ridiculous, people are actually trying to defend this and point fingers that "You are not supporting the community by not buying this"

    This is a rip off.

    If they sell it for 5 bucks sans the community thing, would it be a fair price?

    Yeah but now you get even less with it. With shago you got KI gold to use.

    This time it's just Kilgore. Nothing else.

    Today I learned that half the cost of an entire KI season for one character is 'outlandish'.

    I never will understand where devs are getting those screwed up DLC costs.

    Zazz Mysterious.

    for xbox gold users, the cost of season 2 will be FREE on january 16th. season 1 was free last january.

    so i'll just stay with my original plan of "wait it out"

    I, uh.... Already bought him.

    He's pretty fun, but I don't think slapping a $10 price tag on him was very fair, despite it suckering me. At least throw some Gold in there with it or more than just one accessory set and no retro or SOMETHING.

    important note: the season 2 special download is starting to show as free already (because time zones, I guess?)

    so now everyone can debate: is the dinosaur or the spooky ghost the best character in the game?

    that's a trick question: they're both the best.

    Ive been playing a lot of Killgore, he's fun but my god is he bad. Next to 0 mix up options and cant really combo off his ranged attacks. Super awkward but satisfying. His combos are janky, too...

    It's either a new character or a Shadow Lords guardian. In Shadow Lords, there's a piece of lore that talks about Tusk and Kim's Guardians forming as weapons, and states there's another like it that's a Katana.

    ... Hisako related...? like why even

    Hype! If anyone wants to play this game, pm on here. I play Kilgore and General Raam.

    Someone mentioned it elsewhere (twitter comments I guess?). It is speculation based on nothing concrete probably.

    Just another guardian would be pretty disappointing though.

    I assume you mean juggle combos. Theres quite a few floating around. He's got great damage in overheat mode with one chancers and bar.

    Here's the one by Domi:

    Since I got the game recently I've just been using Combo Assist to do most of my normal combos also the reason I play Kilgore and Raam is the same. Raam is very clearly not a combo character. He only has one combo linker which is the stab. He has great unbreakable stuff(damage), setups, meaties and crossups. Also love his instinct once I get rolling in it because the enemy just melts. As for Kilgore, I love the way he plays. Limited zoning that nets good meter. Then he has to go in. Get a grab or whatever and do tons of damage spending your meter. In non overheat you have missile setups after HKD. In overheat, you have "safe" metal ball crossups as well as incredibly dangerous throws. While he may be lacking in mixups without a cr.mk that hits low or an overhead, he has exhaust that makes a lot of things safe. An amazing DP and an iframe move that can be used to avoid certain moves or just be totally safe in overheat mode. Also his Gun charge thing is good for covering space in front of you while being able to convert meterless(unsafe tho). He's awesome and surprisingly hes like top 5 in the KI Community Tier List. He's got good matchups which I can so far agree with.

    I can't remember what files said it in Shadow Lords, but Hisako finds the katana and holds onto it so she can give it to the person who will use it.
