Urien can walk forward before firing off a Headbutt in Street Fighter 5, here's how to perform and apply Dr. Fatbody's 'Micro Walk' tech

You may know Dr. Fatbody from the awesome Street Fighter 5 tech he posts over on Twitter and YouTube. Not long ago, he sent a bit of Urien tech our way that adds even more to his already stacked arsenal.

Deemed the "Micro Walk" Headbutt, this particular technique allows Urien to walk forward a bit before launching into his special move. While this isn't a new concept for quarter circle motion moves or even left/right charge attacks, it's something we don't see often for down/up moves.

Below is an example of the tech in action.

As you can see, the Micro Walk can be used to bait the opponent into teching throw, which will open them up when Aegis Reflector is on screen.

I jumped into the lab to do some testing of my own, and found that the most consistent way to perform it is as follows:

Hold down-forward until your charge is ready, then slide the joystick to the forward direction. After a small walk forward, finish out the motion of the headbutt. The timing is tricky, but this is definitely something Urien players can get down with some practice.

You can see another example of the Micro Walk Headbutt below, as well as another application for it.

Thanks for the heads up on this one, Dr. Fatbody.
