Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - Haggar tech, anti-Spiral Swords technology and more combos

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • July 5, 2013 at 11 a.m. PDT
There's some new Marvel content for the curious here, starting off with some combos featuring Haggar, where he hard tags in from a combo to deal massive guaranteed damage. Check it out right below, courtesy of SprintGod.

Hit the jump to check out a kill combo with Dante and Vergil, some anti-Spiral Swords technology for when you're fighting Vergil, a combo video featuring Deadpool, Dormammu and Taskmaster, as well as a strong Firebrand combo.

Here are two more videos, an elaboration on videos we've previously posted, regarding Vergil's Spiral Sword. These two videos cover the entire Marvel side of the cast, showing what supers work, do not work and sometimes work to counteract Spiral Swords, thanks to TheShadowloo.

Next is a combo video featuring the team Deadpool, Dormammu and Taskmaster, from Eternal-EMZ. There's some strong stuff here, so make sure to check it out even if you only use one of the three characters, or if you just want to see good content.

Finally, here's a combo from Firebrand, where he nets an easy 950,000 damage. While this isn't unprecedented among other members of the cast, it's a strong showing from a character like Firebrand, hardly known for his damage output.

Thanks to Sprint, Burnout and a bunch of anonymous users for the news tip.

Does hard tagging in a combo reset the Assist call?

@2 The problem with just blocking spiral swords is that you're also gonna have to block the 3 or 4 teleport and rapid slash mixups that follow it, which isn't always easy. Still, attempting to simply beat out spiral swords durability with your own super isn't really ideal either.

Also, I could've sworn I've seen Spiral Swords eat up Hyper Sentinel Force before. I think if Vergil's ducking during spiral swords, he doesn't get clipped in the head by the eye level drones of Hyper Sentinel force.

@#1 No it doesn't, but you can use your point characters assist after the raw tag.

That mythbusting video was worthless. 99% of vergils will teleport mixup after the activation. This video just showed dumb training mode footage of whether or not a super will hit through the swords or not. It holds no value other than "I guess this move is better than swords" but even then, what would have made this video decent is to show if the moves can punish the sword activation.

Agree with Yousend #7

I rather the person making the video show what actually punishes it like for ex. dormammu can chaotic flame as soon as vergil does spiral swords or even level 3. Same with dante;s level 3 or really fast invincible supers like doom (have to be close) etc.

That Deadpool / Dormammu / Taskmaster combo vid has some pretty awesome stuff in it.

This doesn't really apply if a different character is doing the majority of the damage. It's really a hard tag setup for Doom and a DHC back into Firebrand.

why bother with this if I can just put vergil on my team

DDT video was amazing. Awesome combos and tech there.

However, am I the only one who's not too impressed with the "Firebrand" combo? It involved putting Doom in, which we know is a huge damage boost...and it's not like it's an assist call.

I feel like if it's a "Firebrand" combo then it should feature him as the main source, not having Doom do some loops. *shrug*

IDK.

So Spider-Man's ultimate web throw doesn't work when Vergil is standing on the ground? Good to know ;)

I like the music useage in the first video - YOU ARE SHOCK! Some nostalgic Fist of the North Star up in here :)

I think all FB teams need a hard tag character, Doom just happens to be the best. I think FB/Doom/Dante or Skrull will be the team of the future.

as a person that has a dorm/mag/deadpool team, i cant help but cry tears of joy at that dorm/task/pool combo video. dorm and pool are the real bffs but you cant play them efficiently w/o a beam assist. i like to use either mags, iron man or thor. good stuff.

and f*ck haggar!!! why do you have to be so godlike!!!

@#20 Jam session doesn't lock them down long enough for unblockables.
