A ridiculous glitch in 'Street Fighter V' has made the game's biggest troll character into a game-breaking powerhouse
- "Street Fighter V" players have discovered a new glitch that lets players repeatedly freeze time while playing with Blanka.
- First introduced in "Street Fighter II," Blanka was already one of the most polarizing characters in the series- generations of players have learned to hate his odd fighting style, while others pick Blanka to troll their opponents.
- Because the glitch allows Blanka to execute an infinite combo, it could have an impact on the game's competitive balance if it's not fixed. The "Street Fighter V" tournament season starts on March 15th in Atlanta.
A newly discovered glitch in "Street Fighter V" has made one of the game's biggest trolls into a potential game-breaking threat. The glitch allows Blanka, the green, beast-like character from Brazil, to repeatedly freeze time around him.
Blanka must have a full Critical Art bar (the blue bar at the bottom) to trigger the glitch, so he can't use it at the start of the game. It's not particularly easy to execute either, players have a 1/60 second window to enter the inputs correctly. But if the glitch is used repeatedly, he can create an infinite combo by repeatedly stopping time.When the glitch is activated, everything on the screen freezes for a fraction of a second, but Blanka can keep moving (and inflicting pain on opponents). The clock will still run, and Blanka can repeatedly freeze time so long as the player keeps executing the glitch correctly.
Here's a closer look at the hiliarious glitch that's giving Blanka his moment in the spotlight:
Can confirm it's what @Killbawx said. If you do a qcf qcf P xx f.KKK then you reproduce the bug. If you wait 1 frame or more between the P and the f.KKK it won't work.- Loïc *WydD* Petit (@WydD) February 12, 2019
