The new Tundra Storm move is completely useless against Balrog, F.A.N.G., and Vega; here is a list of moves Zangief's counter works on

One of the new changes being implemented into the new patch is the addition of a few new moves, including Tundra Storm for Zangief. Tundra Storm essentially functions like a counter but only for a very specific set of moves.


Typically, counter type moves in the Street Fighter series have been somewhat obvious on what they were able to trigger against. Zangief's Tundra Storm occurs to me personally as being a little less intuitive.

For the most part, you just simply need to know ahead of time which moves can trigger the Tundra Storm. Zangief's Tundra Storm can't be triggered at all in the Balrog, Vega, and F.A.N.G. match ups.

Below is a list of moves that will trigger Tundra Storm which was supposedly grabbed from data within the game.
