Doomscizor D2 Limited Orbit is a Defense Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Tyros T2 & Doomscizor D2 Dual Pack.
Energy Layer - Doomscizor D2
Main article: Energy Layer - Doomscizor D2
Doomscizor D2, like its predecessor Doomscizor, is an Attack Type Layer that features four smooth sided, compact blades. Two of these blades are made of colored plastic with a sloped design that allows for small amounts of Upper Attack, the other two are made of transparent plastic and aren't sloped, meant for Burst Attack.
Despite being advertised as an Attack Type Layer, the Japanese release of Dark Deathscyther does not perform well in Attack Combinations but excels in both Stamina and Defense Combinations due to its incredibly round design. Because the blades are so compact, the protrusions are incredibly shallow and create little to no recoil. This, along with the Layer's strong teeth makes it very resistant to Bursts and KOs. In comparison to its predecessor, Dark Deathscyther's Flywheel Effect is not as great as Deathscyther, but it is still comparable. And unlike Deathscyther, this Layer's teeth will not wear down with use.
However, Dark Deathscyther has a history of breaking. There was one mold variation made in an attempt to fix this issue; where the plastic was made thicker and reinforced with bars. However this did not solve the breakage problem, so it is recommended to find a second generation version of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.
Forge Disc - Limited
Main article: Forge Disc - Limited
Limited features a diamond shaped design akin to Force. Due to this similar shape, Limited can function identically to Force, but the same factors prevent the Disc from being effective in tournament play. The first is the shape as there are few Layers that benefit from the weight distribution, the second is the small size and thus light weight of the Disc which limits the weight it does distribute.
Performance Tip - Orbit
Main article: Performance Tip - Orbit
Orbit features a free rotating plastic ball tip with a diameter equal to Massive, surrounded by a three tabbed ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's KO Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however, in practice the free rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the KO resistance given by the surface area of the ball. Like other ball based Defense Performance Tips, the tabs around Orbit are meant to act as brakes against KOs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the large diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, Orbit creates an aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that Orbit-based Combinations would be easy to KO, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers and Core Discs compensate for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free rotating tip increases the Burst resistance of an Orbit-based Combination and Orbit consistently has a stronger spring lock than Atomic which further improves Burst resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Orbit also features high Stamina as the free rotating nature reduces friction with the stadium floor, the wide ball tip keeps a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping.
