Easy jumping melees

It's well known that jumping melees more damage, but you shouldn't jump in the middle of a fray just to get a better whack. So, if your reticle is red, 'roll' your thumb over the 'A' button en route to the 'B' (Default settings work best). You get minor elevation and the full damage of a real jumping melee.
