Make The Most Of Your Basic Melee Attack

The basic melee attack is great for defense against melee characters because it shoves people away, but one thing that's underrated about it is you can use it to pin someone into a corner. Someone like Miko, who has a somewhat fast melee attack, can shove someone into a corner, keep spamming the melee, and basically trap them there until they die. It's a very good way to secure a kill if you know you won't need to heal someone. Otherwise, hitting people with the melee attack can widen the gap so that you have a better chance of getting away. Certain characters don't have superfast melee attacks though, like Montana, so knowing when you'll actually gain a benefit is important.
