Capcom‘s vintage arcade classic Street Fighter II might be 26 years old, but a new video has just compiled several secret combos to entice you to dig up your old port. Following an intensive training, experimentation and execution session, Street Fighter II expert and gaming pro called ‘Desk’ produced this segment after tapping into a series of fighting combo moves that act on glitches in the game’s original coding to give players in-the-know the chance to launch unstoppable attacks on opponents.

For the true SFII players — and those familiar with combo juggling systems — the glitch takes full advantage of an OTG (short for “Off The Ground”) vulnerability of the character sprites that allow for combos to continue after a ground sweep. This short window of opportunity gives the attacker a split second to land a second string of attacks which ultimately depletes the victim’s entire life bar, much like Infinite combos exploited later and popularized within games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Watch the video to gain the upper hand in future bouts and click here to see how another vintage game, Contra, has received a VR update.
