SF5 Season 2 April Balance Patch: Rashid

Update 4/30/17* The new patch is coming out at an undetermined time as of now. Click here to find out why.

Developer Comments: The change to Rashid’s light kick was made to bring him more in line with the general philosophy of reducing the over effectiveness of light attack anti-airs introduced in Season 2.


  • Hurtbox
    • Fixed an issue where Rashid’s collision boxes would shrink in the reverse direction of other characters if Rashid turned around while crouching. This lead to characters being able to cross him up with certain moves after he landed from mid-air recovery, when they were not supposed to.
  • Standing LK
    • Reduced the upwards hitbox
    • Increased the horizontal knockback distance on mid-air hit
  • EX Eagle Spike (V-Skill)
    • If Rashid KO’s the opponent with EX Airborne Eagle Spike during his V-Skill, he will get the EX flashing screen finish
