Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Cammy's body is surrounded with a blue aura as she shuffles backwards in attempt to evade an attack or projectile. Upon a successful evasion, Cammy somersaults toward her recovering opponent and delivers a crouching back kick.


"An open book!"

The V-Shift gives Cammy a way to escape to an opponent's offensive pressure or break their chain of attacks. While her V-Reversal switches sides with the opponent can potentially put them in the corner, it is -6 on block. If the opponent can predict when Cammy is about to perform a V-Reversal, they can perform a damaging punish combo to her while keeping her caught in the corner. With the V-Shift, Cammy can temporarily evade one of the opponent's attacks to give herself a free punish attempt. By pressing Heavy Punch and Medium Kick during the evasion, Cammy can perform the Counter Spike. Not only does the attack have decent range, but it also knocks the opponent back and inflicts a bit of gray health. Her V-Shift Break can be used if the opponent is too far away to punish.
