|Street Fighter V||+ (Claw attack)|
Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Punch with the claw, Vega lunges forward and extends his claw-hand toward the opponent. This move can only be performed when Vega is in his claw stance. If the claw is removed or if he is in the bare-handed stance, Vega will only perform a regular Heavy Punch
Despite the slow startup, this move is Vega's farthest reaching attack. Vega uses this move to keep the opponents at bay, as well as fish for a Crush Counter. When Vega gets a Crush Counter off of this move, he can link to a sweep to continue pressure on the opponent. If V-Trigger is available, Vega can link into it, followed by his Critical Art for a large amount of damage. However, this move can leave Vega vulnerable if blocked.
