Player discovers game breaking Marvel vs Capcom 3 glitch

In the proud tradition of Guile's handcuffs glitch, fighting game guru Desk (aka YouTube user Biffotasty) has discovered a huge, game breaking glitch in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The glitch involves Zero, and renders the game totally unplayable once it hits.

Check the video out here:

What's happening: Activating Zero's Sougenmu Hyper (QCB + 2 Attacks) then hitting a character with a snapback attack (QCF + an Assist) while their assist is on screen causes both characters to leave the screen then not come back. Note that Zero's shadow's snapback must be the one that hits for this to work. The match continues until the time runs out.

It's easy to complain and say characters like Sentinel are broken after losing online yet again, but this is literally broken. Granted, it's an extreme situation that's unlikely to affect 99% of matches, but it automatically shuts the game down if it hits. It works online as well, so get ready to see a huge influx of Zero players until Capcom patches it.

    Oh Zero, you still don't know what you're fighting for.

    I'd be steamed if I had less health than my opponent then they won because I couldn't damage them any more.

    This ended up being the biggest disappointment of the year. We bought a BETA game. We can argue this, but I'm right, so quit arguing.

    Huh, interesting. The glitch makes sense and I'm sure they'll take it out at some point in the future. The game needs some rebalancing and whatnot but I'm still loving it. I'm waiting for the one time someone pulls this on me and i have like 1 vitality more than he does and I win by this glitch.

    You have to love how good desk is at finding things like this, he found the haggar/spencer glitch that is pretty funny, not as game breaking as just plan silly looking.

    Not surprising as this game is extremely broken already. I'm less surprised that it's Zero. Fuck that guy! He's almost as annoying as Sentinel and Arthur. I hate this fucking game! *pout*

    I'm guessing you gotta pop him up over the real zero's snap in order to get the shadow's snap to hit first when the guy drops. I wasn't a huge fan of zero anyway

    Is Zero's attack so awesome that they just can't stand it and run away?
  • XLGirthMan - March 9, 2011 11:17 p.m.

    Zero? More like Shmero! Ahahahahaha *sigh* forever alone

    I love Spider Man's "I'm outta here!" at the beginning. Pretty much sums up the whole video. Also, the last part with Arthur was pretty funny. Actually, everything after that was pretty funny, as well.

    You know this stuff would be a lot less widespread if you weren't making a story out of it.

    Really? I tried this in training, doesn't seem to work..
