- This article is about Assault-Q. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Assault.
Assault-Q is a Performance Tip released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the QuadDrive System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the Cyclone Fury String Launcher Set.
Assault-Q is an Attack Type Performance Tip and Hasbro's QuadDrive counterpart to Assault. Like its normal counterpart, Assault-Q features a wide flat tip and retains the same general shape. The wider surface area of the flat tip creates speeds greater than Performance Tips such as Accel, but comes at the cost of control and Stamina. Due to its speed, it is more difficult to perform a flower pattern by Banking or performing a Sliding Shoot with Assault-Q. Consequently, Assault-Q is most useful against Mobile Combinations that wander close to the Tornado Ridge.
Assault-Q features a slightly modified shape to accommodate two attachment points for an Armor Tip. Like all QuadDrive Performance Tips, an Armor Tip can be attached to Assault-Q, switching it to "Plus Mode". In this mode, Assault-Q is essentially replaced by the Armor Tip, and the height becomes similar to a SpeedStorm Performance Tip. As Assault-Q features a strong spring and thus high Burst Resistance, it is recommended to use Assault-Q as the base QuadDrive Performance Tip for an Armor Tip.
Like its normal counterpart, Assault-Q is outclassed by rubber flat Performance Tips such as Hunter-S and Xtreme, which feature higher speeds and greater control. However, Assault-Q finds use as a viable base QuadDrive Performance Tip for Armor Tips.
As such, Assault-Q is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
