Dragon Ball FighterZ Complete Guide: All Combos And Super Moves, Zeni Farming, Cheat Codes, And More

A complete guide for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Posted By | On 09th, Feb. 2018 Under Article, Video Game Tips

Dragon Ball FighterZ has been out for a few days now and it’s likely that you were impressed by the game’s visuals which remain true to the spirit of the original anime the game is based on. Apart from flashy visuals however, there’s a lot to learn in this game whether it’s complex combos or strategically building a team with fighters who complement each other well.

Whether you’re a player who just wants to beat your friend with some amazing combos or whether you’re serious about the game and  intend to defeat many other aspiring fighters online, there’s surely something in this guide that will be of use to you. If you’re ready to unleash your inner Super Saiyan, then let’s get started!


Learn to use the super dash

Especially in your early hours with the game, the super dash is one move that you’ll be tempted to use a lot. It’s a move that’s relatively easy to use as you only have to press the Right Trigger or R2 to activate it. if the hit connects, you’ll also be able to unleash combo attacks that devastate your opponents. However, it is not too difficult to counter the super dash so be careful when you use this move so that the situation doesn’t turn against your favor.

Learn to counter the super dash

The easiest way to counter the super dash is to simply hold your guard against their attack. However, you can turn the situation more to your advantage by using a Down+ Heavy Attack move that will send opponents flying upwards. Furthermore, many Super Attacks can easily counter the super dash by dealing massive damage if they are timed right.

Be clever when you assemble your team

Every character in their game has their own unique assist attack which will significantly affect how you chain combos together when taking on opponents. Make sure you try out as many fighters as you can so  that you’ll always be ready with a strong team based on what your situation demands.

Play the Battle Tutorial mode

This is a great way to learn the mechanics  of the game and it’s also a great way to get a feel for how the combo system in the game works. Once you’re done with this, be sure to play some arcade matches before moving on to playing some online matches.

Use your Sparkling Blast ability wisely

The Sparkling Blast ability is a one-time ability and can completely turn a battle round if used right. It basically powers up your character while restoring their health. The boost in power is more if you have fewer fighters left alive. Ideally then, the move should be used when you’re on your last legs and there’s no way out.

Finish off characters with low health

If you stuck with the tutorials long enough, you would have learnt that you can force to swap an opponent so that you can finish off a character with low-health before they restore their health. To do this, you just have to press L1 or the left bumper in the middle of performing a Dragon Rush guard break. This will swap the opponent’s current fighter out and will give you a chance to finish off that fighter whose health you’ve already got down.


One of the very important aspects of the game you need to master is the use of assists. When you’re assembling your team, you have to make sure you pick an Assist who can really complement the other fighters in your team.

  • SSB Vegeta- Big Bang Attack: Once SSB Vegeta launches this attack, it limits you to the startup period.
  • Vegeta- Aerial consecutive Energy Blast: If this attack is used, Vegeta attacks from a height and builds combo points if the enemy is successfully hit. If the attacks are blocked, then the enemy is forced to remain still until Vegeta is done with the assist.
  • Kid Buu- Ball Attack: This attack keeps circling around an opponent and  keeps them locked in place, whether it hits the opponent or is blocked. This assist is very useful in unleashing deadly combos upon the opponent.
  • Gotenks- Galactic Donuts: In this assist, Gotenks will wrap a circular energy rod around the enemy which will track them and deal damage.
  • Android 18- Barrier: The barrier helps in blocking damage and can be a crucial defensive maneuver if used correctly.


In this game, you’ll have to learn to use some complex combos if you want to master the art of fighting like a Super Saiyan, Fighters have their Normal Attacks, Special attacks and their Super Attacks. To use a Super Attack, you will first have to fill up your Ki meter.

There are a number of ways to earn zeni quickly in the game. However, you’ll need a lot of zeni if you want to unlock SSB Goku and Vegeta, so here are some tips on how to farm some zeni in this game.

Complete the Quests

There are some starting quests you’ll come along in the game that are a great source of zeni. Additionally, also make sure you comple the the Daily Quests. These quests are pretty easy to complete and they net you a decent reward of 2,000 zeni.

Story Mode

Playing fully through the story mode will net you at least 200,000 zeni. Once you finish playing the game on Normal however, be sure to try playing through it again on Hard difficulty and you will be able to get the ‘Victory Zeni Up Level 6’ skill and it can help you earn up to 5000 zeni from a single match.

Combo Challenges

The combo challenges in the game are a nice way to earn some zeni as passing each challenge will net you 5000 zeni. This is a great way to learn some of the more complex combos and to also make some money while doing so.

Arcade Mode

In the arcade mode, the Snake Way Course is a great  way to earn some zeni. With a higher grade when completing the course, you’ll also receive more zeni so be sure to bring your best game when you’re trying this out. The first time you finish  this course, you’ll be able to make 7,000 zeni. The great part about this method is that you can continue earning zeni by doing the course over again after the first time.

Versus Mode

For every versus match that you play, you earn 300 zeni and  it’s great way to make some zeni without having to pay too much attention to what you’re doing. Since this method works in battles against CPU opponents as well, you can just set the difficulty to low and then use the following method. First, just map your heavy attack onto your X button or A button if on an Xbox. Then select Goku Black.

Since the X button serves also to confirm whether to start the next battle, it requires no effort from your part at all and the next battle will automatically begin.  Once you’ve set changed the button mapping as instructed, just figure out a way to hold down the X button so that it is continually pressed.

Congratulations! You can now just go about doing anything else you want. This is a great way to make some zeni if you want to just be doing something else but want to get some zeni while leaving your consoleon.


One of the interesting mechanics in this game is the ability to summon Great Dragon Shenron once you’ve collected 7 Dragon Balls in a match. However, in any actual battle, it’s not going  to be a probable outcome to be able to summon the Great Dragon. There are 2 ways to earn the Dragon Balls and these are explained below.

The first way is to simply execute a light auto-attack combo and to then do it over and over again until you have all 7 Dragon Balls. The other method requires to get a specific number of combo hits to get a specific Dragon Ball.  For example, if you want Dragon Ball number 4, you would need to perform a combo that goes up to 40-49 combo hits. Anything more or anything less will not get you that particular Dragon Ball. Listed below are the specific requirements for each Dragon Ball.

  • Dragon Ball #1: 10-19 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #2: 20-29 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #3: 30-39 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #4: 40-49 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #5: 50-59 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #6: 60-69 Combo Hits
  • Dragon Ball #7: 70-79 Combo Hits

Keep in mind that players share the same pool of Dragon Balls so what’s important is who is first able to summon Shenron. So even if you were the one who collected all the Dragon Balls, it might be your opponent who summons the Great Dragon before you get a chance to. To summon the Great Dragon, you’ll need a full meter and if you have this, then you just need to execute a light auto-attack combo. As soon as you’re done executing this combo, the Great Dragon will be summoned.
