YouTuber NurseLee is the man with the plan when it comes to finding setups in Street Fighter V. This time, he’s digging up tech for Zangief and providing you with a list of meaty setups to help improve your Russian grappler game.
Since it’s important to keep your enemy as close as possible, capitalizing off of knockdowns is especially crucial when playing as the Red Cyclone. Zangief’s sweep, V-Trigger and Double Lariat are three of his most commonly used moves that happen to get the opponent off of their feet, and NurseLee in experiments with all three of these in his quest for red meatys.
Regarding the sweep specifically, he notices that a Crush Counter sweep and a sweep on hit have the same timing, assuming the opponent does not choose to do a quick recovery. Check it out below as NurseLee demonstrates this observation and more. If you’re looking for tech but Zangief’s not your man, check out more of NurseLee’s videos here.
