Hi everyone, first noticed this glitch while I was doing Mission 8. It is not a ‘Mission 8’-specific glitch, it is a character(s)-specific glitch. ie. it works on Chun-li and a few other characters. I tested it in Training Mode, therefore it should glitch up during a real match.
1st Glitch info:
Shield Slash L bypasses opponent at point-blank range.
How to get it to work:
Go to Training Mode. Choose Captain America to be in your team. Choose 2 other chars, inconsequential. Now choose Chun-li, Deadpool and some other character on the opposing team.
As Captain America, stand in front of opponent, and do a shield slash L (QCF + A) really close. Do it right, and the first hit of SS L will go completely through opponent, giving him/her a free punish.
Alternate way of getting it to work:** ** Updated 9 Jan '12**
Perform a wave-dash at point-blank range in front of the opponent before throwing a Shield Slash L. If wave-dashed correctly, the resultant Shield Slash will pass through a certain character.
Why it glitches:
This problem only happens for Shield Slash L version and on certain characters. Probably due to the change in the properties of Shield Slash L in UMvC3. Plus Chun-li has a weird hit-box, I think her hit-box is too narrow. Therefore the shield just goes pass. I tried it on smaller but fatter characters, like Raccoon, Wolverine and Joe. It doesn’t happen. Deadpool also glitches up.
Other chars I’ve tested:

Also, for all those who took some time doing Mission 8, there’s a second glitch.
2nd Glitch info:
Shield Slash L bypasses opponent OTG when done in the corner (you are in the corner facing midscreen).
How to get it work:
Push Chun-li to the corner. Now go to the corner. Using Cartwheel (S + Attack). Do the first 2 steps in the mission.
- Forward air throw Chun-li.
- Ground, Shield Slash L.
If done correctly, the shield slash L will miss completely. Next, the X-factor will be wasted. More importantly you will waste precious time until X-factor runs out before you can try again, or you are figuring out if you didn’t time it properly, when it clearly doesn’t work at all. (Fix this Capcom. Waste of time.)
Why it glitches:
Not sure as to why. Probably has something to do with the change in SS L. But this ONLY WORKS IF YOU ARE IN THE CORNER. If you are both characters are mid-screen, of course you will be able to pull this off. Haven’t really gone through with testing on other characters.
Other chars tested:
Phoenix/ D. Ph.

This is actually a big problem for Capn America. If anyone is up to it, can you do a video on this? Or how should this be reported to Capcom. Anyways you guys and try it.
