A counter is a retaliatory strike by an enemy or an ally upon being struck. It can take the form of a physical attack or the use of a Tech on the offending player, a random player, or the entire group. Certain, high-power techniques are used upon an enemy's defeat. Equipping the Rage Band accessory increases the probability of an ally responding to an enemy attack with a counter by 50%. Ally counters are only "fight" attacks.
