    When playing as Megaman or Bass I noticed that whenever I shoot a projectile from a special weapon, and then switch to a different special weapon, the projectile I previously fired disappears from the screen.

    That actually happens in all of the other MM games that let you switch weapons.
    As far as I know, it was probably intended.

    Hmm. I guess the effect was less jarring in the original MM games since you had to enter a new menu screen in order to switch weapons. I think this is a case where SMBC could stray slightly from the original games in order to improve gameplay. If confirmed to be intentional, I will request this as a feature.

    Well, yes, because you're not using the weapon anymore. I'm not Jay, but I am sure it was intentional.

    Actually, in MM9 and MM10 you can switch without going to a menu, and for speedrunning this is actually preferred.

    In Megaman 9 and 10, switching your weapon in game would cause your current on screen weapons to disappear.

    Actually, that sounds like a good argument for putting that menu screen in SMBC.
