Why blind ’em with science when you could kill ’em with dance moves?

When I say Resident Evil: Revelations 2‘s Raid Mode dance gestures are deadly, I’m not being figurative.

If you finish the first chapter of Revelations 2 you can unlock Gina for use in Raid Mode. All characters can use gestures to communicate (or just have fun) in-game, but one of Gina’s passive abilities allows her to do deal damage while gesturing.

This is funny, as Redditor Lord Sane discovered, but it turns out it can be kind of useful too.

“The Hip-Hop Dance and Let’s Do This gestures will grant you the most benefit,” LexCrunch said in a detailed analysis.

“Hip-Hop Dance acts instantly, is indefinitely sustainable, and can be canceled almost immediately. It gives you a relatively safe defensive and offensive force field that can do surprising amounts of damage, killing common enemies in one or two hits if you focus on leveling just that one skill. I like to use it aggressively by canceling it over and over with a short movement, or defensively to kill the dog things or any other beasties that might die in one hit by watching them try to get at me.”
