People are still learning secrets from video games created over three decades ago. This time, a gamer noticed that a spectator in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out is giving signals that are helping to make Little Mac unstoppable.
As Redditor midwesternhousewives discovered, there is a visual cue among the spectators in the second Piston Honda fight, which tells the player when to throw a punch that knocks Honda out with one blow. A one-punch KO of Honda has been known for years, though gamers were left to guess exactly when that window is open during his special attack. Now it’s clear; just watch the bearded guy on the front row, about seven over from the left.
Here’s video proof to prove it’s not a fluke.
The same spectator also provides a tip-off during Bald Bull’s charge attack in the second fight. When the bearded guy ducks, nail Bald Bull with the body blow. In the first match with Bald Bull, wait for a camera flash and nail him.
