While the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles don’t exactly have super strength, their strict training regimen, bolstered by their reptilian physiology, does make them exceptionally hard-hitting gents. With a combination of skill, strength, and weaponry, they can knock the biggest foes right off their feet. To see that happen, here’s how to do Heavy Swings in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge – How to Do Heavy Swings

The Heavy Swing is your go-to attack when either dealing with a densely-packed cluster of enemies or just one enemy with a sturdy guard. This ability swings in a wide arc, swatting lesser foes aside and breaking most guard stances.

To perform a Heavy Swing, just stand still and hold down your attack button for a few seconds. Your character should enter a charging animation, and when their weapon flashes, you’re ready to let loose. Just release the attack button, and they’ll take a big swing right in front of themselves.

A couple of things to remember about this trick: firstly, when you’ve fully charged a Heavy Swing, you need to commit to it. You can’t switch your direction or positioning once the move is charged, so make sure your target is actually in front of you before you get one ready. Secondly, while the Heavy Swing can break simple guard stances, it can’t knock down enemies with super armor like the red Foot soldiers or most bosses. You can still deal a lot of damage to them with a Heavy Swing, just be ready to get out of the way of a counterattack promptly.

Take some time to practice this move. Certain levels do have challenges necessitating you defeat enemies specifically with a Heavy Swing, so you want to make sure you’ve got the timing and spacing nailed down.
