Alex and F.A.N.G. in Street Fighter 5 are fun characters with some interesting tools at their disposal. Unfortunately, these two warriors just don't seem to stack up well against the stronger fighters in Season 2.5, and for the most part, are generally considered low tier.

Despite this, there are loyalists that exist today who continue to fight on as these characters. Not only do they play them, they play them incredibly well.

Gunfight is currently the #1 online ranked Alex player in the world, and Dusk Aims is the same for F.A.N.G.. Both are Master rank, with Gunfight having around 35,000 League Points and Dusk Aims having about 45,000 LP.

These two players recently came across each other online, and ran an epic first-to-five set. Thanks to RektScrub, we have it here for you to enjoy.

Both players are excellent at offensive pressure, making each one lethal when they're in close. Gunfight's use of V-Trigger and Alex's stomp is deadly, but so are Dusk Aims's poison mix ups.

If you want to see what either of these characters are capable of at a high level, you'll definitely want to check out this set. Below are a couple of clips to get you started.
