Having a hard blocking opponent's combos? Learn about Street Fighter 6 Drive Reversal to turn the tables and grab a victory.

The new Drive System in Street Fighter 6 has offered Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Overdrive Art, Drive Rush, and Drive Reversal. In this guide, I will talk about Street Fighter 6 Drive Reversal, as many players are having problems with it. This new mechanism can be used to make the distance between you and your opponent, and it can be a complete game changer if you master it.

Key Takeaways
  • Drive Reversal is one of the new mechanisms introduced in Street Fighter 6.
  • It is used to counter when the opponent is throwing a bunch of combos.
  • Drive Reversal takes up two bars in the gauge on activation and does a little damage to the opponent.
  • The counterattack gives you enough time to make a distance or to attack the opponent.
  • Drive Reversal is easy to use, but it could be difficult to master it as you could mess up the timing.
  • If you mess up the timing, your opponent will get another opening and might finish the round. 

What Is Street Fighter 6 Drive Reversal?

Drive Reversal is basically a defense mechanism that is mostly forgotten in fighting games. When you are hit with a barrage of moves, you won’t be able to do anything, meaning you will eventually lose the fight unless a miracle happens. So, when you are being hit by a barrage of moves, only Drive Reversal would help you.

There are other things you can do, but this one is the most effective as it will give you the opening you have been looking for. When you use Drive Reversal while being hit by the opponent, your character will do a counterattack with low damage. However, this will give you some time to make some distance from your opponent, or you could use the opportunity to just go on the offensive and turn the tables. But you should be careful, as your opponent could also use Drive Reversal.

How To Use Drive Reversal Effectively?

Using Drive Reversal is not a difficult task as you just need to hit back, hit Forward, and both HP + HK together. The difficult task is to use it effectively. But once you know all the useful information, it won’t be difficult anymore. The first thing is to keep in mind that Drive Reversal takes up two sections of the Drive Gauge to counterattack. 

Drive Reversal Activation

Using the two gauges will be totally worth it, as it will break your opponent’s combo and give you a chance to turn the tables around. However, it is not so simple. If you wait too much trying to get into the position, your opponent might start attacking you with another combo, and if you use the Drive Reversal again, it could leave you with an empty gauge. This may cause some of your best characters to enter a state of exhaustion, which will leave you vulnerable.

The bar will eventually fill up again, but it could cause you to lose the fight, so you must know when to use the Drive Reversal and what to do after using it. Mastering it could be a complete game changer for you, and you would become extremely good at Street Fighter 6. 

That’s almost everything you would want to know about Street Fighter 6 Drive Reversal. Remember to use it when in a pinch so you could be able to stop your opponent’s combo.
