Attack Ring - Cross Attacker is a Attack Ring released as part of the Magnacore System. It debuted with the release of Dranzer V on 2003.

Description

  • Weight: 5.6 grams

Cross Attacker is a fairly small Attack Ring, taking the form of four phoenix heads, each followed by a wing. Each wing has a steep slope, suitable for Upper Attack in right spin, though due to their short length and the fact they lack any additional ability to reach under opponents, they produce noticeably less Upper Attack than mainstays of the type, such as Kid- and Master Dragoon's Upper Dragoon, or even Driger G's Triple Tiger. The sets of phoenix heads and wings are each separated by a single small spike, the leading edge of which juts out parallel from the Attack Ring. The miniscule size of these spikes mean they rarely make contact with the opponent, though their flat faces would likely result in little more than additional Recoil if they did.

The sharp ends of the wings provide moderately effective Smash Attack in right spin, and while not nearly as effective as Triple Wing or Cross Griffon due to a combination of limited range and slight Recoil issues due to the angle of its contact points, Cross Attacker is still a decent choice if superior alternatives are unavailable.

In left spin, the rounded front edges of the wings and the small protrusions on their outer edges form the main contact points. Both of these surfaces produce a large amount of Recoil due to their sheer size and the inability to focus hits that results from their shapes. As a result, Cross Attacker should not be used in left spin for any type of customization.

Use in Smash Attack Customization

While not a top tier choice, Cross Attacker can be used fairly effectively in a standard Smash Attack setup. Grip Base provides excellent speed, and is a relatively short base, allowing Cross Attacker to exert some Upper Attack in addition to the Smash Attack it produces. Wide Defense has decent weight to control the combination's Recoil, and its externalized weight distribution maximises the speed and movement of the customization. While Cross Attacker's issues limit the customization as a whole, it is still a highly effective Attack type Beyblade, and should not be underestimated.
