Executed by pressing down, plus Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Rashid performs a quick, front roll to close the gap between himself and the opponent. Pressing kick during Rolling Assault, Rashid extends his leg out and kicks his opponent, launching them in the air.

Rashid's V-Skill is very versatile and has a lot of potential for controlling space and dishing out damage. Rolling Assault can be used to slide under projectiles and punish his opponent at the same time.

Additionally, the Rolling Assault has a lot more potential for mobility, mix-ups, and resets. For starters, the roll works as a great tool for Rashid to push his opponent when he increases the move's range. This can be done through the usage of V-Trigger. Rashid can also use his Heavy or EX Whirlwind Shot , yielding close to a quarter of the stage. If the opponent blocks the Whirlwind Shot, Rashid can use the Rolling Assault to continue offensive pressure by mixing up frametrap combos and throws.

The most efficient way to inflict damage with this move is to use it when the opponent is in the corner. For example, after cancelling the Heavy Whirlwind Shot into the Nail Assault, Rashid can use his Medium or EX Spinning Mixer to get maximum corner carry. He can also use Heavy Spinning Mixer in the corner for maximum damage.
