The Backslash is Vega's V-Reversal in Street Fighter V.

Input
Backslash Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade Button Punch x3 (During guard)
Short Backslash Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade Button Kick x3 (During guard)

Description Edit

Executed by pressing forward and all three punches after blocking an attack, Vega performs a handspring back flip to further distance himself from his opponent. Vega also is equipped with a second V-Reversal called the Short Backslash. Executed by pressing forward and all three kicks after blocking an attack, Vega performs a quick backflip, also seperating the distance between himself and the opponent.

TacticsEdit

Like most V-Reversals, the purpose is to stop opponent's pressure or to get out of tough situations. Because Vega is not strong when he's under pressure, the Backslash should be used to create as much space as possible between himself and the opponent. However, if Vega is stuck in the corner, he can use the Short Backslash to keep the distance from his opponent managable, giving Vega an opportunity to bring the pressure right back.
