Here comes the bug swatter for Season 3.

While the most famous has been the Urien V-Trigger II invincibility glitch, it seems a number of bugs crept their way into the Arcade Edition build of Street Fighter V — affecting not only Urien, but also aspects of gameplay for Akuma, Abigail, Menat, Laura, and Ibuki. Capcom has now acknowledged these glitches, and has stated that they will be removed via an upcoming patch — the “next update,” but no specific date for that update has been yet provided. (It’ll probably be on a Tuesday.)

Here are the listed bugs and planned fixes:

Akuma
  • Bug Content
    When performing the V-Skill Rakan against Ken’s Shinryuken, Akuma had a tendency to move backwards upon performing the Rakan Gokyaku.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed the movement value for Rakan Gokyaku, eliminating the phenomenon.
Menat
  • Bug Content
    The active frames for each of her normal throws without the crystal ball were 2F.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed so that the active frames for each of her normal throws is 3F, the same as with the crystal ball.
Urien, Ibuki
  • Bug Content
    When activating their V-Triggers Aegis Reflector and Rokushaku Horokudama against an opponent who is getting hit, one extra hit was added to the combo scaling count.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed so that the combo scaling count for Aegis Reflector and Rokushaku Horokudama on activation is the same as before.
Urien
  • Bug Content
    With his V-Skill Metallic Aura active, during the forward dash attack movement of Tyrant Blaze, upon absorbing an enemy attack with the armor property Urien would gain complete invincibility for the remaining duration of the move.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed so that Urien will not lose his hurtboxes upon taking a hit against the armor of Tyrant Blaze with Metallic Aura active.
Abigail
  • Bug Content
    Abigail could cancel the first hit of Abigail Punch (each strength) into V-Trigger.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed so that Abigail cannot cancel into V-trigger from the first hit of Abigail Punch.
  • Bug Content
    During the forward movement of the max-charge Metro Crash, Abigail gained an unintended number of armor hits.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed so that Abigail will have two hits of armor during the forward-movement attack portion of max-charge Metro Crash.
Laura
  • Bug Content
    When performing Shock Dance from a normal move cancel, the proper combo scaling was not applied.
  • Fix Content
    Fixed to apply the proper V-Trigger activation combo scaling when Shock Dance is activated from a normal move cancel.
