2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
Performance Tip - Zeta-S

Zeta-S is Hasbro's SlingShock counterpart to Takara Tomy's Zeta Performance Tip. Like Zeta, it features an adjustable tip with three settings: Attack, Defense and Stamina. Like other SlingShock Performance Tips, Zeta-S features a "Battle Ring Mode" and a "SlingShock Mode"; however, due to its design, Zeta-S's "SlingShock Mode" is simply the tip being left protruding after adjusting it. In fact, the only notable difference between Zeta-S and its normal counterpart is the Defense setting's wide ball tip is flat instead of round.
The Attack setting features a rectangular flat tip which creates aggressive movement patterns with high speeds. However the rectangular shape makes it incapable of maintaining a Banking Pattern as the corners of the rectangular shape grind against the stadium floor.
The Defense setting features a flat semi-circular tip. In theory a wide tip would increase Defense by having a greater surface area and friction, but in practice its lags behind other Performance Tips such as Defense.
The Stamina setting features a flat tip with a small protrusion in the center, akin to Fusion. When launched parallel to the stadium, it will spin on the protrusion, creating a stable, Stamina-conserving spin. When knocked off balance by the opponent or launched at an angle, the flat tip will contact the stadium floor and create a movement pattern with the same speed as Accel before returning to balancing on the protrusion.
