Cody Travers has returned in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition under the new mantle of Mayor of Metro City. Although Cody is a series veteran and was previously playable in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Ultra Street Fighter IV, his normals have been almost completely overhauled, while his special moves have been redesigned and repurposed. Additionally, his V-Triggers are completely new, and add many additional special moves. He seems to reference his Final Fight toolset moreso than his previous Street Fighter incarnations — though he feels versatile and strong. I’ve put together this guide of his 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 Cody bread-and-butter video is not the full Cody tutorial I’m working on, but rather simply a guide to his basic optimal combo routes. The combos are all my own findings, alongside a few things I’ve observed from other players. Although Cody is technically a returning character, he’s been almost completely reconstructed, and he has multiple similar combo routes with huge potential for okizeme and V-meter optimization. Thus, I wholeheartedly encourage anyone watching to point out superior combo enders and combo routes in the comments, for both me and the other players, so that I can amend them into the final video when I release it!
