The Best Way to Play as O'Malley

The best way to use O'Malley in the UFC 4 game is by playing the 'distance' game, and fighting from a longer range.

O'Malley is so long that he's quickly able to cover distance to throw strikes, and then get back out of the opponent's range.

Additionally, just as O'Malley does in real life, you'll want to switch stances consistently (99 Switch Stance stat).

This will allow you to throw a bunch of different looks at your opponent, and not let them begin to pick up on your patterns.

His best weapons are:

  • Straight punches
  • Superman punches
  • Spin kicks
  • Front kicks
  • Side kicks

His top moves are:

  • Celtic Cross (Y)
  • Roundhouse kick (LB + B)
  • Body Straight punch (LT + Y)
  • Lead Spinning Heel Kick (LB + RB + X)

One of the coolest features of playing as O'Malley is that when you miss a body roundhouse kick with him, you can seamlessly transition into a spinning head kick, which always catches opponents off guard.

The only other player that we've seen be able to do that so far, is Bruce Lee.

What to Avoid

His grappling and wrestling game as of the time of this writing aren't anything special, so you'll want to avoid this during the fight.

It's important to note that these stats can increase if O'Malley is able to display his skills in a UFC fight (in real life).

Additionally, the health of his body and legs aren't the best either.

So, if your opponent begins to spray you with body strikes and leg strikes, you'll want to monitor that, as you can't eat too many of those.
