Exceed

This ability allows Nero to increase the power of his attacks. It's one disadvantage is the long time needed to charge the Exceed meter, but it's good to have it ready for boss fights. You can charge it using the Left Trigger (or Q)- you'll notice that the pointer (on the up-left side of the screen) is going up. Now release the trigger for a while and press it again before the pointer falls down. When done right, a lamp near the indicator should light up. MAX-Act skill can accelerate the charging of the Exceed Meter.
