The Hammer Kick is one of Cody's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade-Button-HKick

Description Edit

Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Kick, Cody steps forward and delivers a soccer kick that hits his opponent twice. If no directional input or button is pressed after the throw, Cody quickly stretches out his leg before dropping back in his stance.

Tactics Edit


Despite its 19-frame startup, the Hammer Kick is one of Cody's more versatile attacks. It is -2 on block, making it somewhat difficult for his opponent to punish. Cody can also cancel the first hit of this move into his special attacks, his V-Trigger, or his Critical Art. If he catches an airborne opponent with his Jumping Medium Punch, he can use Hammer Kick to juggle them and continue the combo for additional damage. By pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick after the second hit, Cody performs the Crack Combination.
