With the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Story Demo released earlier this month, veteran combo creator and game scientist desk has been exploring the title’s systems — particularly the new freeform tag mechanics — and pushing them to their limits, even while having no access to a proper Training Mode. We’ve already seen him analyze MVC:I’s take on infinite prevention, as well as putting out an initial combo video filled with some very impressive sequences.

Now the content creator provides us with a method to defeat the game’s boss, Ultron Sigma, who players will face in the final battle of the demo (with the team of Spencer and Thor) utilizing a grapple loop with the Bionic Commando.

Though Ultron Sigma takes very little damage, will Advancing Guard nearly all your attacks, and possesses both the Reality and Space Infinity Stones, desk’s loop of J.LP, HP, d+HP (Head Smasher) canceled into down-forward Wire Grapple, combined with Power Stone wallbounces and a few Hypers, should allow you to survive the match. The combo looks similar to some loops from back in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
