Assault (アサルト, Asaruto), stylized as αssault, is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-00α Booster Amaterios Aero Assault in August 2015.
Assault is a wider version of Accel. It is a flat-based Performance Tip and is the same height as all previous Performance Tips released in the Beyblade Burst series. The top of the Driver features a symbol called alpha (α, the first letter of the Greek alphabet) which represents "αssault", for easy recognition between other Performance Tips. While Bladers commonly spell it as Assault, the use of the α in the official spelling ensures that the one-part-per-letter rule gets followed in the Burst System, instead of doubling the As.
Assault performs like a standard flat tip, but it is just much faster around the stadium compared to previous releases because of its tip's wider circumference. The enhanced speed makes Assault great for Attack Combinations, but this comes with sacrifices of control of the Beyblade. Due to the speed this Driver produces, it makes it a lot harder to pull off a flower pattern by Banking or performing a Sliding Shoot. As such, it is mostly only good at defeating Mobile Combinations that wander close to the Tornado Ridge, which it follows wildly once it catches onto it. The larger surface of contact's higher friction also comes at the expense of lower Stamina, with Assault losing spin velocity earlier than smaller flat tips and delivering mediocre hits by the time it reaches the center of the stadium.
Use in Attack Combinations
As such, Assault is recommended for collection purposes only.
