Not to be confused with Weapon Use, another one of Mega Man's special moves.
Weapon Change (武器替), formerly called Weapon Switch, was originally Mega Man's down special move in Super Smash Flash 2. Mega Man did a faint warp animation and four colored silhouettes of Mega Man would appear around him. By pressing a directional key and letting go of the special button, Mega Man could choose one of five moves to be assigned to his standard special move, Weapon Use. At the beginning of every match, Mega Man would start with Mega Buster as the default weapon.
While Mega Man performed the move, he would stop in place, even in the air, negating any momentum he had. After approximately two seconds the weapon would be selected automatically depending on which direction is being held. As of Beta, Weapon Change has been replaced by Water Wave.
Prior to v0.8, Mega Man did not have the option to choose which weapon to change to; instead, he would simply cycle between Mega Buster, Super Arm, Crash Bomb, Black Hole Bomb, and Wheel Cutter, and then back to Mega Buster.
