Infiltration's Menat is looking extra scary just in time for the Capcom Cup Last Chance Qualifier

Perfects, comebacks, resets, mean combos and more

Though he hasn't yet qualified for Capcom Cup this year, GRPT|Infiltration's fighting game skills are unquestionable.

After dominating Street Fighter 5 and winning EVO, the Korean player's amazing 2016 came to a rocky finish with an 0-2 Capcom Cup run. That turbulence carried over to 2017 as his main character, Nash, received nerfs that led Infil to look elsewhere on the roster.

The EVO champ moved to a few other characters, most notably Juri (who is also regarded as low tier this season) but has not yet been able to live up to his former glory.

It seems he's made yet another transition to the game's second newest character, Menat. The fortune telling zoner is still fairly fresh, and so it's hard to nail down exactly where she belongs on the tier list, but Infiltration's impressive plays with her thus far make us feel like she's a threat.

XusesGB has uploaded a compilation of Infil's Menat play that includes quite a few sequences, both stylish and devastating.

We're not sure whether he'll be using Menat as his main character come the Capcom Cup Last Chance Qualifier, but it's looking like that might be a good call especially given Infil's traditionally pestering playstyle. Here's a pretty slick 40-hit combo that Infil managed to pull off while streaming recently:
