Street Fighter 5 Cammy Guide

This guide basically details tips and strategies on how to play as Cammy and how to play against her along with some of her sample combos:

How to Play Cammy

While playing as Cammy, you always need to stick close to your opponent unless you are trying to replenish stamina or trying to plan your strategies before closing the gap.

Against opponents who like to play with projectiles, Cammy has a lot of meter-less counters, but those have strict timing. Your strategy should be to avoid eating one and jumping you go on to close the gap.

Dhalsim and F.A.N.G. are Cammy’s worst nightmares when it comes to a match-up. Against these opponents, you need to bid your time and advance while your opponents are recovering. Moreover, do not hesitate to move in if you see F.A.N.G. charging up.

At mid-range, your primary pokes should comprise of standing MK and crouching MK which can be transformed into combos. These attacks not only have insane range, but also force jumps which Cammy can easily shut down.

You can also use Knee Bullet to close in the gap and get in range for your other attacks. Finally, coming to close range, this is the position at which Cammy really shines.

While at this range, _ou need to go with frame traps and hard-hitting combos. Cammy’s low jabs and kicks can easily penetrate your opponent’s defense allowing you to mix in standing attacks and get more aggressive.

As for defense, Cammy can easily watch her back using a invulnerable Cannon Spike, crouching LP, and her V-Reversal. Do note that her V-Tri**er is not extremely good which is why you are better off using the V-Gauge for reversals.

How to Play Against Cammy

While playing against Cammy, you need to look out for Hooligan Combination Cannon Strike which is generally safe with the exception of F.A.N.G., Birdie, and Zangief.

You also need to ensure that you do not try and leap at her from air because she will punish you badly. You need to fight her on the ground, but beware of her lethal close-range combos and frame traps.

Cammy’s crouching MK can easily be beaten by Ken’s standing HK or Laura’s standing HP. As mentioned above, Cammy’s Cannon Spike is safe, but you can cause it to whiff and deal a hard-hitting combo.

Last but not the least, Cammy utterly struggles against projectile-dependent characters such as Rye, Ken, Nash, etc. While she does have a couple of ways to go past the projectiles, you can fake them to cause her to react quickly and then punish her badly.
