Even though he’s no longer as popular – he left wrestling a few years ago – former football player turned wrestling superstar Goldberg created quite a few highlights with his stints in World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment. He had a huge unbeaten streak at one point, with over 100 wins under his belt, along with a championship soon after. His opening entrance is also considered one of the best around, where he stands beneath sparks and charges towards the ring.
Suffice to say, he’s a force to be reckoned with. If you need help mastering him, here are some bone-crushing tips.
How do I perform Goldberg’s spear in WWE 2K14?
The spear is a devastating maneuver, one that can bring down an opponent of any size; yes, even Andre the Giant. To do this, knock your opponent down enough that you build up your signature/finisher meter. You’ll see when it’s ready, with text that appears right below your wrestler.
Once your opponent is down for the count, step across the ring and perform a taunt. You should motion for the ability to execute the spear. Even if you don’t, if signature highlights, hit Y or triangle, depending on your version of the game. He should motion for his opponent to get up, then run into him at full force.
How do I perform Goldberg’s Jackhammer in WWE 2K14?
Make sure you have signature/finisher all set to go, and once you have your opponent in the right position in front of you – and they don’t interrupt with an attack – press Y or triangle. Goldberg should scoop them right up – even the bigger guys – and parade around the ring for a second or two before sending them crashing them down to the mat for the pin.
Does Goldberg have a submission move in WWE 2K14?
He sure does. If your opponent is right in front of you, you can roll them up into an arm bar. Just make sure you’re close enough and kick them in the gut to stun your adversary. When stunned, press the signature button and you’ll be able to roll them up into an arm bar. NOTE: it helps to do damage to their arm first, providing leverage for pushing them past the “breaking point” on the meter.
Is there anything else I can do with Goldberg in WWE 2K14?
Yep. He’s great with power moves, like a full press body slam (move over, Ultimate Warrior) and a butterfly suplex. He’s also good at reversing certain attacks, though it’s up to you to hit the button at the right time. If you’re looking for a real powerhouse, he’s your guy.
