Thanks to the pretty not great tutorial, remembering how to grab and how to vanish can be a headache — and you definitely don’t want to sit there and test out button combinations in the heat of battle. Both actions are critical to progressing through the story and in multiplayer, so you need to have them at your disposal.

One would think this would be a simple topic, but more than one of my friends have had trouble remembering mid-fight. I assume they’re not the only ones.

Let’s make this simple. Below are the button combinations for both actions on all versions of the game, with the three control schemes. The PC version has controller and keyboard and mouse support, and keyboard controls can be customized.

How to grab or vanish on PC

Xenoverse PC players using keyboard and mouse have the luxury of rebinding their keys, which in itself is pretty nice. They also have the option of using an Xbox 360 controller, which uses the same inputs as it does on the console.

If you do rebind your keys, know this combination:

  • Grab – Guard and Ki Blast
  • Vanish – Guard and Jump

If you leave the keys at their default, that translates to:

  • Grab – E and Q
  • Vanish – E and Spacebar
