BATTLE TACTIC #4: BATTLE GEAR – APRIL 2010

Welcome brawlers! I’m so excited to bring you this month’s issue of Battle Tactics!

This month is all about the all new and extremely exciting game play element brought to the battlefield by Bakugan Battle Gear! The new Gundalian Invaders line of Bakugan introduces these annihilating pieces of ultimate weaponry designed to amp your Bakugan’s G-Power beyond belief. Now with more muscle on the field, you can unleash amazing strategy on your opponents!

Harness the power of Battle Gear with the following basics:

BATTLE GEAR 101

How to Use Your Battle Gear!

The new Series 3 rules incorporate Battle Gear as a vital tool to claim victory on the battlefield. The official rules (download here) allow a brawler to use two special pieces in battle: 2 Battle Gear, 2 Trap, or one of each!

Battle Gear are used to beef up your Bakugan to incredible strength! To play them, simply open them on any standing Bakugan in battle and add the printed G-Power. Next, if your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes on your Battle Gear Reference Card then you get to use the ability stated! Or, if your Battle Gear matches the color of the Gate Card being battled on, you can choose any one of Reference Card abilities.

Additionally, Battle Gear can be used on ANY Bakugan! If a Battle Gear weapon isn’t designed to fit your Bakugan specifically, you can still use it by opening it on the Gate Card in battle and process the same as mentioned above.

For more information on how to use Battle Gear, check out the Bakugan’s featured article ‘Battle Gear 101: Maximize Your Arsenal’ here.

Now that you’ve learned the Battle Gear basics, you’ll be able to take your game strategy to the next level!

Thank you for tuning in to this month’s Battle Tactics and hope you’ll tune in next month for my latest strategy tip!

Battle Gear 101: Maximize Your Arsenal – Changes!

There are some slight changes to the ‘Battle Gear 101: Maximize Your Arsenal’ .  I am posting this on the 2nd, so you don’t think it’s an April Fool Joke:

Q: Can I use Battle Gear with Bakugan from any series and type?
A: Yes!  Battle Gear can be used in gameplay with any Bakugan from series 1, series 2 (New Vestroia), and series 3 (Gundalian Invaders). While Bakugan Battle Gear will only physically attach to specific Gundalian Invader Bakugan from Series 3,  that doesn’t mean you can’t ( or shouldn’t)  use it with a series 1 or series 2 Bakugan. When using a Battle Gear with a Bakugan that does not specifically attach to its back, simply open the Battle Gear on the Gate Card in battle and process it as you normally would, as stated below.

Gold Attribute

Silver Attribute

Copper Attribute


Q: How do I use Battle Gear in battle?
A: Bakugan Battle Gear are played during a battle (from your unused pile). Place your Battle Gear on the back of your Bakugan to open it. It may also be opened on a Gate Card next to your Bakugan. Add the G-Power revealed on the inside of the Battle Gear to your battling Bakugan.

If your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes listed on  your Battle Gear reference card, then you get that ability as well; Or, if your Battle Gear matches the color of the Gate Card being battled on (Gold, Silver, or Copper attribute) you may choose any one ability on the Battle Gear reference card to use in this battle.

Battle Gear move like regular Bakugan. At the end of a battle, they move to your used pile. When you have no Bakugan to roll, all of your Bakugan, Bakugan Trap, and Battle Gear move to your unused pile.

Each player may use a total of 2 Bakugan Trap or Battle Gear (or a mixture equaling 2). So, a brawler may have 2 Bakugan Trap. Or, a brawler may have 2 Battle Gear. And, a brawler may have 1 Bakugan Trap and 1 Battle Gear.

Q: What are the Battle Gear Attributes?
A: Battle Gear come in one of three Attributes: Gold, Silver, or Copper. To determine a Battle Gear’s attribute you will see that each Battle Gear is marked with either Gold, Silver, or Copper highlights. You can also identify the Battle Gear’s attribute by looking at the icon printed on the gear as well. (See below)

Knowledge and education is the most valuable weapon on the battlefield! Now that you are properly equipped with the basics of how to use Battle Gear you can now effectively begin making your own strategies that fuse Bakugan with their new weapons. Keep in mind that these are the barebones of Battle Gear use. For more specific situations and rules information be sure to read the Battle Gear FAQ section in the Bakugan Gameplay FAQ.

Brawl on!

Maximize Your Arsenal

Q: Can I use Battle Gear with Bakugan from any series and type?
A: Yes! Although there are specific Bakugan that are designed to be fit perfectly with the weapon, Battle Gear can be used with any Bakugan from series 1, series 2 (New Vestroia), and series 3 (Gundalian Invaders). If you want to use the Battle Gear with a Bakugan that does not specifically equip it simply open the Battle Gear on the Gate Card in battle and process it as you normally would, as stated below.

Q: How do I use Battle Gear in battle?
A: Bakugan Battle Gear are played during a battle (from your unused pile). Place your Battle Gear on the back of your Bakugan to open it. It may also be opened on a Gate Card. Add the G-Power revealed on the inside of the Battle Gear to your battling Bakugan. If your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes on  your Battle Gear reference card, then you get that ability as well; Or, if your Battle Gear matches the color of the Gate Card being battled on (Gold, Silver, or Copper. Also see Battle Gear Attributes) you choose any one ability on the Battle Gear reference card to use in this battle.

Battle Gear move like regular Bakugan. At the end of a battle, they move to your used pile. When you have no Bakugan to roll, all of your Bakugan, Bakugan Trap, and Battle Gear move to your unused pile.

Each player may use a total of 2 Bakugan Trap or Battle Gear (or a mixture equaling 2). So, a brawler may have 2 Bakugan Trap. Or, a brawler may have 2 Battle Gear. And, a brawler may have 1 Bakugan Trap and 1 Battle Gear.

Q: What are the Battle Gear Attributes?
A: Battle Gear come in one of three Attributes: Gold, Silver, or Copper. Not only are the Battle Gear’s highlights colored appropriately to their Attribute, but they also have an icon painted on them to tell the brawler what kind of attribute they are:


Gold Attribute
Looks like a target, or crosshair.


Silver Attribute
Looks like a missle, or triangle.


Copper Attribute
Looks like a cat’s eye.


If your Battle Gear has the same attribute as the Gate Card you are battling on then you may choose to either: 1) If your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes on your reference card, you get the ability as well, or 2) If you Battle Gear matches the attribute of the Gate Card you are battling on you can choose any one ability on the Battle Gear reference card to use in this battle.

Knowledge and education is the most valuable weapon on the battlefield! Now that you are properly equipped with the basics of how to use Battle Gear you can now effectively begin making your own strategies that fuse Bakugan with their new weapons. Keep in mind that these are the barebones of Battle Gear use. For more specific situations and rules information be sure to read the Battle Gear FAQ section in the Bakugan Gameplay FAQ.
