Final Atomic Buster as it appears in Street Fighter IV.

Zangief attempts to grab the opponent; if successful, he performs two Atomic Suplexes, finishing with a Spinning Piledriver or two (depending on the level in some games).


It is a very deadly Super Combo, but stumbles often due to its awkward activation and low range. However, like most of Zangief's arsenal, it is the perfect close range weapon due to its nonexistent startup time. It is a very effective Tick Throw option due to it's instant nature.
