Bullet Counters are the main resource in Schwarzerblitz. Serving as the game's equivalent to Super Stocks, they are a vital aspect to all areas of the game. They can be used to improve your offensive, defensive, and combo games.
You start off every game with six counters. You consume one bullet every time you perform one of the following actions:
- Trigger Attack
- Trigger Guard
- Impact Cancel
- Wake-up Reversal
- Any attack marked with a green background in the movelist (some require more than one bullet)
You regain a set amount of bullets at the start of each round, depending on if you won or lost the previous round:
- If you won, you regain one counter.
- if you lost, you regain 2 counters.
Notice, however, that you can't have more than 6 bullet counters at any given time.
Bullet Counters can't be gained by any other mean and constitute a limited resource. Some characters are more suited to use them offensively (e.g. Krave, Lazor), some to use them defensively (e.g. Wally, K-069). Managing them is the key to successfully dictate the flow of a match.
