Quarter (クオーター, Kuōtā) is a Forge Disc released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-67 Random Booster Vol. 5 Gigant Gaia.Q.F on December 28th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Gaianon G2 & Doomscizor Dual Pack.

Description

Quarter is a Disc with a wide, round, pipe-like shape interrupted by four rounded rectangular protrusions, on one of the protrusions is a small, marked elevation that creates the look of the letter 'Q'. Like all Forge Discs, it has two tabs that protrude from the top and fit in the slots in the Energy Layer. These tabs are marked with a stylized 'Q' for identification.

Quarter's gimmick is that it is highly unbalanced, it achieves this by being mostly hollow on the underside, with the marked protrusion being half filled in with metal. A weight distribution like this has two primary uses.

The first is to increase the Smash Attack of Attack Combinations as the unbalanced nature creates momentum like a flail, this is further enhanced by the weight of Quarter which is greater than Heavy or Gravity. However, the off-set weight distribution is too little to increase Attack potential meaningfully while also severely increasing the risk of Self-Bursts.

The second is to make a Combination using an unbalanced layer, like Xcalibur, more properly balanced by placing the heavier corner opposite the heavier side of the Layer which increases its Stamina and Burst resistance.

Furthermore, this same unbalanced nature makes Quarter unsuitable for Stamina and Defense Combinations as the more unbalanced a Beyblade is, the easier it is to Burst.

Overall

Due to Quarter standing as one of the heaviest non-Core Discs in the game and as one of the most unbalanced, it has great synergy with Attack Types and other unbalanced parts. However, its gimmick makes Combination options with Quarter limited as well. Furthermore, with the release of 1 and 1', Quarter has become outclassed in its niche use.

As such, Quarter is recommended for collection purposes only.
