Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – “SNAPBACK TO REALITY,” a Snapback Combo Video

By on March 12, 2013 at 3:52 pm

Animemoshpit‘s latest video makes use of snapbacks in ways they were never intended to be used. When a snapback lands on a single character with no back up, they are simply put into a knockdown state. Since snapbacks are so quick, they make ideal (if not inefficient) combo fillers. Thus, with a little bit of creativity, they can open up a whole variety of impractical but awesome looking combo possibilities.

    I don’t think these were the most useful uses of snapbacks at all.

    Snapbacks in combos should strictly be used to combo after moves like say “gimlet” in place of X Factor, otherwise your just wasting meter like homeboi Iron Man in the vid above.

       the guy who made the video made no claims to these uses being practical or efficient, pretty sure he was aiming for style… efficiency be damned.

      Thanks Captain Obvious.

      Everyone with a brain knows this video wasn’t made to showcase optimal use of a snapback. Well, everyone except you. Hahah.

       Why is there always one person who thinks that every post on SRK is meant to be some be-all-end-all tech for tournament play?

      I like your name and the Maverick boss avatar that I must be foolishly forgetting was named that exact same name in MMX D:

        Pretty sure that’s Boomer Kuwanger.

          It was a joke. A really poorly-delivered one 😛 (The point being I want a boss named Disco Cockroach.)

     Stylish video indeed!

       Indeed.  Tech aside, I wish all combo/stat vids were this classy.

     Awesome videos, I like the game and its interesting especially when combos combine to specials attack. though there are still Characters use more special than combos like the second show in the video.
