Hard Pressure is one of Balrog's unique attacks in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Medium kick>Medium punch>​​​Medium punch+Medium kick>Kick

Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing Medium Kick, Medium Punch, the V-Skill command input (Medium Punch and Medium Kick), followed by a kick button. Balrog hits his opponent with a body punch, followed by an uppercut. After the second hit, he spins his body toward his opponent, ending the combo with a huge downward hook that drives them to the ground.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This is one of Balrog's target combinations that leads to a knockdown. If the second attack connects with his opponent, it launches them in the air, giving Balrog time to perform his V-Skill follow-up that will knock them into the ground. Additionally, Balrog is fairly close to his opponent after the combo, allowing him to maintain pressure and shut down their escape options.

In addition, this target combo can be very deceptive to the opponent. Because the V-SKill follow-up is an overhead, Balrog can use the third attack as a means to break through his opponent's defenses if they block the initial first two attacks.
