It's no secret that Cammy is considered one of, if not, the best character in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition right now -- she is currently ranked #1 in our Street Fighter 5 tiers. Great buttons, excellent offensive pressure, hard-hitting combos, and control both in the air and on the ground are just some of the traits this powerhouse of a character is equipped with.

So what the hell are you supposed to do against her? Fortunately, Tyrant and Method|Packz have answers.

In a new web series from Frame Advantage called "The Lab," these two competitors breakdown some of the best options for defending against Cammy. From when she's punishable to dealing with V-Trigger 1, there's a lot here that you'll definitely want to check out if you're struggling against the character.

Packz and Tyrant analyze and explain Cammy's strengths, demonstrating common situations you'll find yourself in when facing her. Her dive kick, for example, is one of her best tools due to its ability to change her jump arc.

Not only can it cause anti-air attempts to whiff, but when hit from the proper range it leaves Cammy advantageous on block, meaning you're in trouble. In this video, we are provided with a great infographic showing at what heights Cammy is plus, safe, or minus when her dive kick is blocked (which you can check out below).

There are many other helpful tips here including ways to deal with some of Cammy's meaty set ups, how to approach defending throws, and more.
