After knocking an opponent down, Sub-Zero can combo off of his Double Axe Slam (+) without having to spend a bar of Offensive meter. In order to do this, you must use Sub-Zero’s + as a meaty so that it hits during its last active frames. In other words, you must attack with + as the opponent is getting up off the ground, making sure that only the end of the + connects.
As the opponent is getting up, the beginning portion of Sub-Zero’s + will whiff and only the active frames at the end will connect. This means that the opponent will be in hit stun later than usual, allowing for enough time to combo into Ice Ball. This is incredibly powerful as Sub-Zero is a mix-up heavy character and it allows Sub-Zero to combo off of his + meterlessly without the need to equip the Deep Freeze or Rising Ice abilities.
