WWE 2K22 is highly combo-based, with the square being used to start contact with a mild attack before branching into Heavy Attacks with X or Grabs with O. The fourth and last strike is referred to as a Combo Ender, and it does additional damage. Opponents can break your combination by mirroring your button press, therefore it’s crucial to vary your technique during every battle rather than simply tapping square, square, square, square until your thumb blisters.

Your other important in-ring strategy is grappling. To conduct a grapple assault on your opponent, hit circle, then a square or X. Holding the left stick in a specified direction and hitting a button, as in previous installments of the series, performs a specific move. After locking up, you may Irish whip your opponent by pressing the circle.

WWE 2K22 offers more focused ways to boost Special Meters and Finisher Meters than simply doing moves in the ring. Utilize your character’s taunts, as they are able to increase your meter gains beyond simply antagonizing others and gaining a reaction.

Your Special Meter gain will be accelerated if you perform a Crowd Taunt, but your Finisher Meter will not gain by this. Your Finisher Meter gains will be boosted if you perform an Opponent Taunt, but your Special Meter will not gain by this. It is important not to try one too early in a match, as that could leave you vulnerable to attacks from your opponent.
