Neo-Shadaloo soldier Falke has just made her playable debut in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Unlike the last two Season 3 characters, Falke is brand new to the franchise — having only appeared in Ed’s character story — and thus her moveset is fully new and unexplored. Her playstyle seems to be somewhat defensive in nature, featuring air fireballs and long-range pokes which are sorely missing from Street Fighter V as a whole. I’ve put together this guide of her most essential combo routes, so that players can quickly learn the basics and start developing their neutral game. Here are your best bread-and-butter combos that I’ve found for every common scenario. This video features anti-airs, punishes, confirms, counter-hit combos, crush counter combos, juggles, and more.
This Falke bread-and-butter video is not the full Falke tutorial I’m working on, but rather simply a guide to her basic optimal combo routes. The combos are all my own findings, alongside a few things I’ve observed from other players. This character is new, and as such I’m extremely liable to have missed some optimizations here and there, particularly with her trigger combos. Thus, I wholeheartedly encourage anyone watching to point out further damage improvements in the comments, for both me and the other players, so that I can amend them into the final video when I release it!
