If you want to win in MultiVersus, you need to know your characters inside and out. You need to know their moveset, how fast they are, all their weaknesses, and – most importantly – some killer combos to quickly dispatch of your opponents. It’s not all about raw damage, either – a ring-out is just as good as a hard-hitting chain of attacks. With this in mind, we have all the MultiVersus Shaggy combos you need to know about.

As a Bruiser archetype character, Shaggy can pack a punch when needed and he’s best when he’s getting stuck into a fight – even though he does offer some decent ranged attacks. This means that knowing how to chain some decent MultiVersus Shaggy combos together can make him one of the most lethal fighters available right now. We know his inclusion might feel like a meme, but the development team have done a fantastic job of making him a fantastic character to play as.

So, while you’re still learning all the ins-and-outs of the MultiVersus maps and stages, keep reading for the low-down on some of the best move combinations for this Scooby-Doo universe scaredy cat.

Air Juggle Combo

If you want to rack up some damage and set your opponent up for a ring-out, this is one of the greatest Shaggy combos to know in MultiVersus. It’s disorientating and, thanks to the flurry of fast attacks, it’s quite hard to escape.

Knockback Combo

Need to get your opponent to the edge? This combo is perfect for that – and it can then be followed up with a handful of down attacks if you find your opponent caught out and falling off the side of the map.

  • Input on PlayStation: X button, left stick side + square button, left stick side + triangle button, X button, left stick down + square button
  • Input on Xbox: A button, left stick side + X button, left stick side + Y button, A button, left stick down + X button

High Damage Ring-Out Combo

As soon as your opponent is around 75 or more, you can start thinking about ring-outs. This combo will launch your opponent up with enough force that it should knock them straight out of the park. You will need to do this in quick succession, though – because you need to be in the air the whole time.

  • Input on PlayStation: X button, left stick down + square button, left stick up + triangle button
  • Input on Xbox: A button, left stick down + X button, left stick up + Y button
  • Input on PC: Space, S key + J key, W key + K key

Air Ring-Out Combo

However, if the above doesn’t work, you might just need to hit them up higher. That’s where this modified combo comes into play – it will require a little more finesse, but should help you get that extra hit in you need to secure the ring-out (and hopefully, the win).

  • Input on PlayStation: X button, left stick up + square button, X button, left stick up + triangle button
  • Input on Xbox: A button, left stick up + X button, A button, left stick up + Y button
  • Input on PC: Space, W key + J key, space, W key + K key
