A bug has been discovered in SoulCalibur VI that gives some characters access to meter-powered mechanics without having the requisite meter for it.
Voldo’s glitch seems to be the more serious one, as it allows him free use of both Soul Charge and Critical Edge. Based on the video below from MaxSWGA, it seems that during the transition from crouch dashing (while in his back-turned state) allows Voldo to use both of those mechanics.
Sean Appleby has done a bit more testing, and has discovered a number of things that bug allows — including multiple ways to combo into Critical Edge for free. These are detailed in the thread following the tweet below.
So this infinite meter bug with #Voldo is um something, not only can you just keep soul charging. You can even combo into super for no meter from certain launchers like WRB. The character I picked just had to be so busted hes gonna be tourney banned lmao #SOULCALIBURVI pic.twitter.com/DRIJmEpMq0

Tira’s glitch on the other hand was discovered at about the same time. This time, she can activate Soul Charge with only half a bar while in her Gloomy state.
With news of the Voldo SC/CE glitch, I figured maybe I'd spread this one too.
Gloomy Tira can activate a Soul Charge with .5 meter. Not sure if it's intentional or not since it wasn't mentioned in her Combat Guides. pic.twitter.com/xf9hh2QRRh

Of the two, it’s the Voldo glitch that seems more game-breaking. In fact, Some TOs have already made using it grounds for disqualification in their tournaments. Meanwhile, there’s still some debate on whether Tira’s is something intentional or not.
