Signature Move

Deepak Hooda signature move

Running Hand Touch is Deepak’s signature move. In this raider move, the raider runs into the defender’s den with a plan in my mind. The raider target attacks the corners and supports players during a running raid. The player rushes towards a defender and extends his entire body for a quick touch with his hand before escaping to safety.
