Tekken 6 Gameplay: Controls, Combos, and Strategies

To master Tekken 6, you need to get a handle on the controls, learn some combos, and develop solid strategies.


  • Tekken uses a four-button control scheme: left punch, right punch, left kick, and right kick. Pressing left or right plus a button performs a punch or kick on that side.
  • The directional pad or left stick controls your character’s movement. Quickly tap up or down to sidestep, or press and hold to walk forward or backward.
  • Pressing multiple buttons at once performs combination attacks and throws. Experiment to discover new combos!


  • Combos are consecutive hits that keep your opponent stunned. They inflict major damage and win matches.
  • Start with simple 3 to 5-hit combos, like left punch, right kick, and left kick. Once you’ve mastered those, move on to longer combos that incorporate throws, jumps, and power moves.
  • Practice combos in training mode and commit them to memory. Know which works best for your character’s fighting style.


  • Play defensive by blocking frequently and waiting for your opponent to make a mistake, then launch a counterattack. Or go aggressive by using fast combos and power moves to overwhelm them.
  • Sidestepping allows you to evade linear attacks and get in a quick counter. But be careful, as some moves can still hit you!
  • Grab your opponent and throw them when their guard is down. Look for opportunities after they miss an attack or combo.
  • Use the walls and floors of each stage to your advantage. Bounce your opponent off walls and slam them into the ground for extra damage.

Tekken 6 Modes: Arcade, Story, Time Attack, and More

Tekken 6 offers several gameplay modes to keep you fighting. Let’s break down each mode and how they work.

  • Arcade Mode: This classic mode lets you fight through 8 opponents to beat the game. Choose your fighter and difficulty, then battle each enemy to make it to the final boss. Arcade is great for learning the basics and unlocking endings for each character.
  • Story Mode: Follow the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation’s war through cutscenes and fights. Play as different fighters in each chapter to progress the story. Story Mode unlocks more background on the Tekken universe and extra outfits. It provides context for the battles in a cinematic way.
  • Time Attack: Try to beat the clock by defeating opponents as fast as possible. Time Attack tests your skills under pressure and is ideal for improving reaction times and combos. Aim for the fastest time to top the leaderboards.
  • Survival: Keep fighting until you’re knocked out in this endurance mode. Each match you win recovers a bit of health, but the opponents get progressively more difficult. See how many enemies you can defeat before being defeated yourself. Survival helps build defensive techniques and health management.
  • Practice: Hone your skills without fear of defeat. In Practice, you can set options like enemy difficulty, round time, and health. Practice and perfect your moves, combos, and strategies without consequences. It’s the ideal space to become familiar with a new fighter before heading into other modes.
