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

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

Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing Medium Kick, Medium Punch, the V-Skill command input (Medium Punch and Medium Kick), followed by a punch 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 hook punch that sends his airborne opponent spinning 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 back. This target combo is beneficial. If his opponent quick rises or back rises, Balrog can get some meaty setups to maintain offensive pressure.
