MultiVersus Short-Hop Aerials bugged for many players, issue under investigation
Here’s the crux of the article in video form:
MultiVersus is one of the most intriguing and well-received games right now in the PvP crossover fighting genre.
Short-Hop aerial is a movement mechanic in MultiVersus that allows players to perform an aerial attack that is closer to the ground and connects well with grounded opponents.
MultiVersus Short-Hop Aerials bugged
However, many MultiVersus players have recently been reporting an issue where the Short-Hop Aerials are bugged for them at the moment (1,2,3,4,5,6).
Players experience this issue when they try jumping with a character (either while moving or being still) and then immediately use an aerial attack.
Instead of executing the Short-Hop Aerial move, the character just performs a small hop and does not attack. This is a pretty huge bug because players can’t do the combos due to it.
This issue is also consistent across all characters, as players have tried this move with various characters but got the same results.
Short-hop aerials are bugged
As of this patch’s release, short-hopping is bugged and using an aerial immediately after performing a short-hop will result in the game registering it as a grounded attack or an empty hop.
Instant short hop aerials are bugged; they don’t come out consistently and the character does an empty little mini hop instead.
Some speculate that this issue started after the recent patch as prior to that players were able to execute the move without any hitch.
Fortunately, MultiVersus developers are already aware of the Short-Hop Aerials bug and currently investigating it. But there is no ETA for a fix yet.
We haven’t come across any potential workaround that can temporarily fix this issue. So, it seems those affected have to wait until the devs address this bug.
Until then, we will be keeping tabs on the matter and update this article as and when we come across more information so make sure you keep checking this space.
