Best Sidra combos, strings, and combat tactics in Brawlhalla




Sidra and her monster crew ruled the Seas of Thera. The Corsair Queen was legendary for her fearless raids, masterful skill with a cutlass, and a cannon.

If you want to know specific combos about Sidra weapons, check out our sword combos and strings and cannon combos and strings guide.

Sidra stats and best stance

Sidra's got 6 in all stats besides dexterity. This makes her pretty well rounded, as dexterity is not such an important stat, even though higher dexterity would help with certain strings with her weapons. Speed is very good to have with Sword.

Sidra special tactics

Neutral game

Sidra’s neutral game is about spacing with the cannon, while getting in the face of the enemy with the Sword. Cannon has very low priority, so skirting the opponent’s attacks and punishing is a necessity.

Sidra’s Sword sigs are great for string extensions, especially at lower percentages. Sidra’s Cannon Sigs are great for edgeguarding and reads, and they also have insane knockback. Try learning reads with Sword NSig, and string extensions with D/SSig.

Offstage Game

Sidra’s offstage is balanced. Sword is not a risky weapon, while Cannon on the other hand can be dangerous if the opponent is good, due to its high startup on all aerials.

You have one sig which is very good offstage, and that is the sword dSig. The sig is very good for recovering, and it messes up your position a lot for the enemy, while being fast, essentially risking nothing by spamming it.

Edgeguarding

Sidra’s edgeguarding uses the Cannon nSig nLight combo, which covers a lot of area on the corner.

Sword has a pretty fast gp, and you can cornerguard with nSig, or with gc dSig facing the wall.

Sidra Best Combos, Strings and Signature Moves

Not happy with Sidra but like his weapons?

Check out:

Sidra Signature Moves and special tactics

Sword nSig

Sidra summons a tentacle from below, grabbing if it hits an enemy and pushing it horizontally. Has a lingering hitbox, useful for catching people coming back on the stage, and catching spot dodges.

Sword sSig

Sidra slashes with her cutlass and tentacle her enemies in a straight line. Pretty standard horizontal signature, nothing special about it.

Sword dSig

[Video Sword Dsig]

Sidra lunges in the air with her anchor diagonally, then comes back straight down. Very fast, useful offstage, although the hitbox is awkward.

Cannon nSig

Sidra shoots a cannon ball in an arc. The cannon ball explodes once it hits an enemy of it reaches max range. You can use the nLight right after to cover a very large area in front of you.

Cannon sSig

Sidra lunges forward with her cannon. If she collides with an enemy in her path she will stun them and shoot them point blank. Like the sword sSig, nothing special about this move.

Cannon dSig

Sidra summons tentacles below her and shoots with her cannon. The hitbox on this attack is very vertical, but it is still pretty wide and useful.

Best Sidra Sword combos and strings

The sword is a string based, low range weapon. An agile blade with a peculiar dashing and air juggling based playstyle, it’s the perfect partner for aerial combat and fast grounded gameplay.

dLight > GC > nSig

Standard opening for sword combos, followed by the nSig. The combo is tricky to hit, but it’s good for catching dodges if delayed a little.

Ground Pound > GC > nSig

Similar concept to the string above, it’s easier to hit if the enemy doesn’t dodge.

sLight > sSig

A standard followup for the sword sLight. Good for catching running opponents, can be used with a chase dodge for more range, if the enemy dashes/dodges away. has kill potential.

Best Sidra Cannon combos and strings

The Cannon is a great offensive weapon, capable of knocking out quickly using gimps and combos. Quick, snappy and dodge read focused, it’s one of the best weapons for low damage knockouts.

dAir > dSig

Very fast combo. Usually you’d have better options, but if you think that your longer strings are expected then this string can catch the opponent off guard.

sAir > sLight > sSig

A longer and more difficult string to hit, but it is very useful for moving the opponent off the stage since it covers a lot of area. Use it while coming back to the stage from above.

dLight > nSig

Very easy combo to hit, if you know how to space for dLight. Nothing too special, but an option nonetheless
