2 Fausts can comically crash Guilty Gear Strive by tossing out over a dozen meteors at once

There is no real need to worry about this happening in a real match though

Guilty Gear Strive appears to be quite the polished game upon release, but I'm somehow not surprised that Faust can completely break it with his bag of tricks.

A player by the handle of Straycats41 recently shared a repeatable and comical glitch involving two of the good doctors teaming up that completely crashes the game because it seems like Strive just can't handle what's going on.

If both Fausts perform their W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-What Could This Be? Overdrive Super at the same time, it can make the game crash on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 (not sure if this happens on PC too).

This requires all 20 items to be meteors, however, so there's probably little danger of this situation ever coming up in a real fight.

Since the Super version of What Could This Be? pulls out items at random, I don't even want to try and do the math as to how near impossible that would be to pull off considering there's nine different oddities that can appear, but it's certainly way, way below one percent.

Straycats41 also found this bug only appears to work on three different stages, L'oro Di Illyria, Jellyfish Skyarium and Original Times Square, so that makes those chances even smaller.

Even though this is not going to have any real impact on the game (unless we start finding some more broken stuff with Faust because if anyone is going to do it, it's him), we can have a nice chuckle at the true power of 20 meteors.
