The Luftstrom is one of Falke's throws in Street Fighter V.

Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) and pushing backwards near an opponent. Falke first grabs her opponent by the collar. After giving their collar a tug, she thrusts the front end of her staff that's filled with Psycho Power into her opponent's midsection; suspending them above the ground and infusing them with negative energy. On impact, Falke lifts her opponent by the stomach up in the air. Finally, she turns in the opposite direction, and swings her staff downward in an overhead motion. By doing so, Falke throws her opponent off of her staff, causing them to crash back-first on the ground.


While Falke's game plan is to keep her opponent at a distance with her mid-range pokes and long-range special attacks, her throws are essential to break through their defenses. Luftstrom can be used to reset the neutral game and create separation between her opponent. While this move does more damage and stun than her forward throw, Falke won't be in position to reapply pressure due to the spacing of her back throw. However, it is an effective way to put her opponent back in the corner. If Falke is in the corner, she can use her back throw to reapply pressure, while having enough space to frustrate them with her mid-range pokes and special attacks.
