After knocking the opponent down, Sub-Zero can combo off of his F2 without having to spend a bar of Offensive meter. In order to do this, you must do F2 into Ice Ball as a meaty so that it hits during its latest active frames. In other words, you must attack with F2 as the opponent is getting up off the ground, making sure that only the end of the F2 connects.
The reason this works is because as the opponent is getting up, the beginning of F2 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 will allow Sub-Zero to combo off of his F2 meterlessly. This is especially strong in Sub-Zero’s Thin Ice variation because he normally cannot combo off of his F2.
