With Street Fighter 6 finally in the hands of excited players around the world, it is important to know whom you are going to be playing as and against if you’re going to get ahead.

A recurring character since the second game in the series, Cammy is a character that players have flocked to over the years. So, her return to Street Fighter 6 is a welcome one, with a fresh new look to boot. We’re going to be going through everything you need to know to get started playing as Cammy in the game, including her backstory, combos, and the best ways for you to get a handle on her.

How do you play Cammy?

Much like Juri, Cammy is at her strongest when she is using her kicking combos in Street Fighter 6. She is fast and has a long range that makes her trickier moves difficult to predict.

Owing to her speed, it is probably best to pepper your opponent with standard attacks, before subduing them with a massive combo or throw.

Cammy’s Hooligan Combination has several variances that can quickly force openings in your opponent’s guard.

Who is Cammy in Street Fighter 6?

First introduced in Street Fighter 2, Cammy has been a series mainstay ever since. Hailing from Britain, Cammy has often topped the polls of characters that players would like to see in future titles. So, it is no surprise that she should make an appearance in Street Fighter 6.

Cammy has gone through several characterising iterations, including first being a deadly assassin for the series’ antagonist, M. Bison, to a notorious MI6 agent under the employment of the British Government.

While traditionally seen in military costume, Cammy in Street Fighter 6 is now seen wearing a Union Jack-inspired jacket as she works within her homeland as a member of the British Special Forces sector: Delta Red.
