If you would have played a lot of AAGs like Marvel’s Avengers, you might be familiar with the combat system.

How to Use Takedowns on Enemies in Marvel’s Avengers

You will need to attack your enemies with a few lightweight attacks before you can unleash the takedown on them. To know when you become eligible to use takedowns on your enemies, you will have to look out for the stunning bar. The stunning bar is placed beneath the health bar and gradually fills as you keep on hitting your foes. Once the stunning bar is full, you can use takedowns in Marvel’s Avengers. To do so, all you need to do is press Y and B simultaneously on Xbox One, and Circle and Triangle on PS4. As soon as your press these buttons, your superhero will launch the takedowns on the enemy.

One thing that you need to make sure is that you are close enough to your target while starting a takedown. If you are not in close range, the takedown will be worthless. Another thing that you need to bear in mind is to wait for the perfect opportunity before triggering a takedown. While I was playing for the first time, I simply initiated the takedown as soon as it was prompted. As a result, I was left open to be attacked by nearby enemies.

With all this information, you are all set to use takedowns in Marvel’s Avengers. Apart from this combat guide about how to use takedown on enemies in Marvel’s Avengers, you should also know how to get skill points. Getting skill points will help you unlock new abilities for superheroes which can be used along with takedowns during a battle.
