Street Fighter Duel Best Teams Tier List

S-Tier Comps

Infernal Team

  • Attack: M. Bison
  • Attack: Mad Ryu
  • Assassin: Juri
  • Support: Rose

M. Bison is the current heavyweight character in Street Fighter: Duel, who utilizes his Ultimate Nightmare super combo that creates the most devastating series of attacks in the game. His passive skill also automatically weakens all enemies by a maximum of 50%.

The team’s assassin, Juri, has a unique skill Feng Shui Engine that allows her to convert all physical damage into Soul-type damage, which creates a clone of her that basically adds the fifth member to your team. Use it alongside Mad Ryu’s Martial Fighting Soul for increased damage. Lastly, protect your team from damage by activating Rose’s Life Tarot and Destiny Tarot defensive skills.

Flame Team

  • Attack: Dhalsim
  • Attack: C. Viper
  • Support: Mayor Cody
  • Balance: Dudley

This team is currently one of the best when it comes to sheer firepower with Dhalsim’s own Yoga Catastrophe super combo and Yoga Flame skill that burns all enemies within seconds. The extra damage comes from C. Viper’s Seismic Hammer combo and Burning Kick ability, which removes all burn debuffs and increases all flame damage by another 30%.

Finally, Cody and Dudley can provide some damage resistance to the whole team, while Dudley’s own Thunderbolt can also stun enemies and boost all bleed damage by 10%.

A-Tier Comps

Rushdown Team

  • Assassin: Decapre
  • Attack: C. Viper
  • Attack: Dhalsim
  • Support: Fei Long

While the Flame Team has been all about the sheer power of Dhalsim and C. Viper, here I added Decapre for quick combo responses to all enemy attacks and Fei Long for solid support. Although this team may not be as focused as the Flame Team, it can push things in unexpected ways due to Decapre’s combos.

Decapre’s Rapid Dagger attack is brutal, dealing 483% damage. If the enemy’s HP is below 40%, then she initiates an Execute combo, instantly killing the target.

Fei Long performs the role of a buffer in this team, boosting the damage of all allies by 10% using his Dotorinken passive. He’s also capable of stunning enemies with the help of the Gekirinken skill, which renders them useless for the rest of the matchup.

Thunder Team

  • Tank: Zangief
  • Tank: E. Honda
  • Attack: Poison
  • Support: Elen

The further you move through the game, the harder it is to resist enemy damage. That’s where a team of tanks comes in very handy.

Zangief has the Atomic Drop skill that allows him to build up super armor, which makes him invulnerable to enemy attacks. Combine it with his Taunt ability and watch enemies uncontrollably break against the wall made of your own tanks.

E. Honda has another helpful skill Orochi Slammer, which allows him to soak 30% of all damage received by the team. Also, his passive skill Sumo Blood grants him an extra 30% resistance boost to all damage. But you also need to deliver some hits of your own, and that’s where Poison enters the arena with her massive Aeolus Edge combo.

Wind Team

  • Attack: Guile
  • Tank: Abel
  • Assassin: Chun-Li
  • Balance: Cody

What makes the wind characters stand out from the rest is their ability to break enemy armor. That’s where Guile’s Sonic Hurricane comes in to smash enemy shields and barriers. Chun-Li can also help break some more armor with her special Senretsukyaku skill.

Abel will function as a team’s tank using his own Man With No Past armor, but also being able to stun enemies with his Tornado Throw, which adds an extra 474% damage at Level 3.

Lastly, Cody can bring his own game to the table with a combination of negative status effects, including Silence, Charm, Stun, and Taunt, all wrapped up into one perfect Lonely Fugitive ability.

B-Tier Comps

Tanky Team

  • Tank: DeeJay
  • Attack: C. Viper
  • Attack: Dhalsim
  • Tank: Hugo

This team is all about tankiness and the ability to withstand damage before attacking with the two best current attackers: C. Viper and Dhalsim. This team is mostly designed for the late game, where tough enemies deal massive amounts of damage. But if you put it in the early or midgame, it may stall because of the lack of a focused offense.

DeeJay is the main tank of the team; he has the Sobat Carnival shield that protects him from critical hits and even responds with powerful attacks. If you perform any combo with DeeJay, he automatically gains the Dancing Shield.

Hugo is one of the few tanks who can heal himself using the Huge Impact shield. You can also try his Ultra Throw combo, which both deals damage and restores HP in the process.

Master Team

  • Assassin: Gen
  • Assassin: Cammy
  • Balance: Fei Long
  • Support: Rose

If you want to try out pure combat without any extra effects, then Gen will satisfy your needs, although not as effectively as other teams listed above.

His Zetsue’ei and Teiga martial arts manifest a lot of physical damage, but they must be supported by Cammy’s Spiral Arrow that allows you to break enemy armor, so that all of Gen’s damage can actually get through.

Fei Long provides an additional combat ability with Gekirinken, topped off with flame damage. Rose will make sure that your teammates stay safe and healthy.

Early Game Team

  • Attack: Ibuki
  • Balance: Ken
  • Support: Dan

You don’t have access to all the characters early in the game, but this team of three early fighters will help you get through the first part of stages relatively quickly.

Ibuki has an excellent skill that causes bleed damage Kunai Rain, while Ken provides his usual Flame Shuryoken that can quickly burst through a group of enemies. Finally, Dan can taunt enemies and increase your team’s damage with his Gadoken and Saikyoryu Master skills.

That’s it for our Street Fighter Duel best teams tier list. While you may not be able to pull all of these characters, and you may have to mix and match for a while, but once you do roll some of these fighters, you now know how to put them together. We’ll keep this list updated as patches and updates are released.
