Forge Disc - 6
- Main article: Forge Disc - 6
6, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features three, loop shaped protrusions. 6's overall shape resembles that of 7's which implies the same weight distribution ideal for Attack. However, 6 is hindered by its relatively light weight caused by the thinness of the protrusions and the four large holes in the center of the Core Disc where the Performance Tip is meant to sit. While 6 is still heavier than normal Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity, numerous other Core Discs such as 2, 4, 5 and 7 are far heavier with better weight distributions.
Disc Frame - Meteor
- Main article: Disc Frame - Meteor
Meteor is a pentagonal Disc Frame with numerous protrusions to give it a rough perimeter. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, Meteor is one of the thickest Disc Frames available, which grants high Attack potential when paired with Core Discs such as 7.
Performance Tip - Trans
- Main article: Performance Tip - Trans
Trans features an adjustable tip at standard height with two settings, Stamina and Attack, which are switched by twisting the bottom portion of the Performance Tip. Embossed onto the top is a stylized "T" for easy differentiation.
The Stamina setting exposes a small low angle cone tip meant to make the Beyblade stationary in the center of the stadium, however to accommodate the mode change the cone tip is incredibly small in diameter, unlike Survive. Due to this, the tip is susceptible to being knocked off balance in this setting and with the bulky size of Trans, can lead to risks of scraping, though this effect is mitigated by the low angle of the tip. However, the setting lags behind Tips such as Eternal to due to the lack of a free spinning component.
The Attack setting covers the cone tip with a flat tip with a hole in the center akin to Zephyr, creating an aggressive but controllable movement pattern with a hybrid of Attack and Stamina properties, ideal for Mobile Stamina Combinations. However the edges of the flat tip has 4 small tabs around it which prevents the tip from catching onto the Tornado Ridge, instead causing it to grind and lose Stamina making this tip a poor choice for Tornado Stalling Combinations.
- Possibly because of its type-change gimmick, Cognite C3 6Meteor Trans was labeled as an Attack Type in the Beyblade Burst App, but putting it in Stamina Mode fixes this.
- This is Hasbro's first official release of the Trans Performance Tip since Zephyr was released with Nepstrius N2 instead of Trans like its Takara Tomy counterpart.
- Its name is likely a corruption of "cognition" or its Latin root word "cognitio" as these words are symbolized with cogs and gears, which relates to the theme of the Beyblade.
