TACTICS CHEAT SHEET

a little helpful guide
[attr="class","bspeaks"] All of these techniques were taken from the warrior cat wiki page as well as sources I can no longer find. Credit is to the original posters and to the Erins.

TYPICAL FIGHTING TECHNIQUES

Attack Crouch - Crouching down to leap out onto your enemy.

Back Kick - Explosive surprise move to catch opponent from behind. Judge opponent's distance from you carefully, then lash out with your back legs, taking all weight on your front paws.

Badger Defense: Leap over opponent, turn on your back legs and bite opponent's leg. Used only when fighting badgers.

Belly Rake - A fight-stopper. Slice with unsheathed claws against the soft flesh of the opponent's belly. If you're pinned down, the belly rake quickly puts you back into control.

Duck and Twist: Simple defensive move. The cat ducks then twists around, rolling over onto their back, and then springs to their paws.

Front Paw Blow - Frontal attack. Bring your front paw down hard on your opponent's head. Claws sheathed.

Front Paw Strike/Forepaw Slash - Frontal attack. Slice downward with your front paw at the face or body of your opponent.

Half-Turn Belly Rake - Turn onto your side, slip under the opponent's belly, rake it with your claws, then swiftly turn back onto all fours out from under your opponent.

Jump and pin: Complicated move. Leap backwards, and bounce off the wall. With precise accuracy, land on the cat.

Killing Bite - A death blow to the back of the neck. Quick and silent and sometimes considered dishonorable. Used only as a last resort.

Leap-and-hold - Ideal for a small cat facing a larger opponent. Spring onto opponent's back and grip with unsheathed claws. Now you are beyond the range of the opponent's paws and in position to inflict severe body wounds. A group of apprentices can defeat a large and dangerous warrior in this way. Watch for the drop-and-roll counter move, and try to jump free before you get squashed.

Partner Fighting - Warriors who have trained and fought together will often fall instinctively into a defensive position, each protecting each other's back while fending off an opponent on either side. Slashing, clawing, and leaping together, battle pairs can be a whirlwind of danger for attackers.

Play Dead - Effective in a tight situation, such as when you are pinned. Stop struggling and go limp. When your opponent relaxes their grip, thinking you are defeated, push yourself up explosively. This will throw off an unwary opponent and put you in attacking position.

Rear-up to Slash - To hurt opponents coming from the air, this move can be used to rear up on the hind legs and slash at the enemy.

Scruff Shake - Secure a strong teeth grip in the scruff of your opponent's neck; then shake violently until they are too rattled to fight back. Most effective against rats, who are small enough to throw. A strong throw will stun or kill them.

Shoulder Drop - This move is performed by grabbing the opponent's shoulders and then locking them against the ground. This allows the attacker to do anything such as churning their hind paws against their opponent's spine.

Tail Yank - Grab your opponent's tail and yank it with such force your opponent is thrown off balance.

Teeth Grip - Target your opponent's extremities – the legs, tail, scruff or ears – and sink in your teeth and hold. This move is similar to the leap-and-hold except your claws remain free to fight.

Upright Lock - Final, crushing move on already weakened opponent. Rear up on back legs and bring weight down on opponent. If opponent does the same, wrestle and flip them under you. This makes you vulnerable to the belly rake, so it takes great strength and speed.

OTHER TACTICAL TECHNIQUES

Arched Back - Used to intimidate the opponent or to vent out anger.

Attack Crouch
- Crouching down to leap out onto your enemy. 

Bushing out Fur - A technique where one slicks down their fur to fool their opponent into thinking they look weaker/smaller than they actually are.

Roll over - Described as rolling over to avoid an enemies swipes or grip. Large cats or predators can crush opponents that drop onto their backs this way as well.

Tucking in the Tail - The less you give your enemy to hold on to, the better. This technique takes practice, as balancing with a tucked-in tail is tricky. 

DARKER FIGHTING TECHNIQUES

Advanced Badger Defense - Leap over opponent, turn on your back legs, and, while turning, rake your claws on opponent's back. Then sink teeth into opponent's leg. Should only be used when fighting badgers.

Hold and Enemy Collapse - Leap onto an enemy's back, and hold their head with your forepaws and use your hindpaws to knock their hindlegs out from under them, thus making them collapse to the ground.

Spin Hind Kick - Flick your hind legs into the air while spinning around on your forepaws, then rear up rake at the enemy with your claws before tucking your head down and perform a forward roll.

Underbelly Slash - Dart under your enemy's underbelly, slashing at the back of their forepaws. When they twist, expecting you to emerge on the other side, back quickly out of the way you came. Hook your claws into your enemies fur, and drag them to the ground.

UNIQUE FIGHTING TECHNIQUES

Double-Front-Paw Slap-Down - Splash water into the enemy's face with your front paws, temporarily blinding them.

Push-Down and Release -Wrestle your enemy under water. Keep their head below water-level until they surrender, as other Clan cats don't know to hold their breath underwater.

Rushpaw Splash - Flick a splash of water at a distance to create a decoy for the enemy, leaving room for a surprise attack.

Tail Splash - Similar to the Double Front-Paw Slap-Down, splash the water into your opponent's eyes with your tail, temporarily blinding them.

The Branch Swing - Hold on to a branch with front claws as your back paws rake your enemy's face.

The Flick-Over - Balance on a thin branch; make no sound. Land with all four paws outstretched on your enemy. Knock the opponent's feet from under him. Flip the enemy over to their belly; pin them to the ground until they surrender.

The Kick - Balance on a thin branch; make no sound. Kick the enemy as you near the ground. Use the momentum of the fall to spring backward before the enemy has time to attack.

The Reverse Branch Swing - Hold on to a branch with back claws as your front paws rake your enemy's face.

The Reverse Climb - Pace backward as the enemy advances. Climb backward up the trunk to escape enemy; often followed by the Trunk Spring.

The Sky-Crusher - Balance on a thin branch; make no sound. Land squarely on the enemy, claws unsheathed.

The Slice - Balance on a thin branch; make no sound.Drop with claws unsheathed for maximum injury.

The Trunk Spring - Balance on a thin branch; make no sound. Slide down the trunk of your tree. Spring off the trunk with your back legs at head height to clear an enemy (good if tree is surrounded).

Underwater Clinch - Use your enemy's weight to hold them underwater. With a firm grip, raise them to the air so they can breathe, then send them under again. Do this repeatedly until the enemy gives up.

Underwater Leg Sweep (Front or Hind)- Crouch under water, holding your breath. Sweep the legs from under your enemy as their head is raised above water-level; they struggle for breath, as other Clan cats naturally panic underwater.

Underwater Push-Off - Holding your breath, crouch below the water's surface. Aim an accurate pounce to the warrior on the water's edge, knocking them off-balance; the element of surprise should win you this battle.
