How to do Signatures and Finishers in WWE 2K Battlegrounds
In WWE 2K Battlegrounds each of the WWE wrestlers are able to perform their unique signature and finishers moves. These are moves the wrestler is famous for and will do major damage to the opponent when used. Before you can attempt either you must pay close attention to the Heat bar. This is the white circle that appears below the wrestler when playing which over time during the match fills up. You can fill the Heat bar up by successfully hitting your opponent so chaining together a combination of kicks and punches will result in the Heat bar filling up quicker. Once the Heat bar is full you will be able to execute your wrestlers signature or finisher. Simply press the left and right trigger buttons at the same time when your Heat bar is full to perform a finisher. The the video below features every finisher in WWE 2K Battlegrounds.
