5 Moves The Terminator Needs To Have In WWE 2K16
- by Cherokee, 25 October 2015
A couple of months back when a trailer for WWE 2K16 dropped revealing the Terminator as a playable bonus character, I reacted like any other normal person would - I freaked the hell out. There isn’t a single person on this planet who wouldn’t want to play as Arnold Damn Schwarzenegger in a WWE game. Not just any Arnie, either, but Terminator Arnie. My body was, and very much still is, ready.
While the inclusion of Uncle Bob is nothing short of marketing genius (the trailer went live around the time of Terminator:Genisys’ release), there has been one vital part of the announcement kept tightly under wraps. What timeless T-800 moves are players going to be able to throw down with? I mean, let’s be honest - this is the only thing anyone would really want to know about the Terminator’s inclusion in any form of fighting game.
But how do you choose which of Pop’s moves to feature? Here are some moves that should not only be in the game, but should be used to win the game. Arnie doesn't like a loser.
1. GRAND THEFT ARNOLD
Terminator Arnold doesn’t just enter the ring. He is the entrance. There is no other way for the Terminator to arrive but in style; driving a stolen vehicle into the WWE arena, crashing right into the stadium, and stepping out in true unscathed badass fashion.Triple H better be ready. It’s Arnie’s game now.
2. THE TERMINATOR THROW
This is a classic Terminator move and a staple in his combo oeuvre. Assuming that guns (and actual death) are out of the equation, the Terminator throw is your next best bet for a clear road to victory. A cyborg throw can, and should be, used in all possible instances. Any body part is available to lift an opponent off the ground, too - chins and necks in particular are a weak point.
3. REVERSAL HAND CRUSH
T-800 deals in nothing but absolutes. Unlike Anakin Skywalker, though, he knows how to defend himself. The iconic hand crush is a perfect, impenetrable block and one that has another use - to toy with your rival. They may think they’ve got you in an uncompromising situation, but whip out this bad boy and they’ll be rethinking that outcome very quickly.
4. TOILET SLAM
You’ll be enacting every bullied child’s worst fear with this one. While your opponent is stunned from the reversal hand crush, slip under the ring to grab your weapon of choice - a toilet. Carry out the Terminator throw but with far more accurate precision - slamdunk them right into the bowl of the toilet. Extra points for delivering this move.
5. THE TERMINATED GUT PUNCH
Being gut punched by the Terminator is what I’d imagine Goku’s fist connecting with your stomach to feel like. No filter on the impact of that fist. Pure, savage fucking force. This is, unequivocally, the finisher in your combo list and Arnie didn’t even come close to touching the trigger of a gun.
Remember one thing and one thing alone: Arnold wins, Arnold always wins.
