BATTLE TACTIC #8: SINGLE ATTRIBUTE BAKUGAN… MEGA POWER – AUGUST 2010

Single Attribute Bakugan… Mega Power

Don’t overlook powerful abilities that only apply to one of your Bakugan or Bakugan Battle Gear in your team.

The blue Ability Card, Enchanted Silver, boosts your Bakugan’s G-Power based on its attribute during a battle where you have a Silver Battle Gear in play. In this case, the Ability Card gives Darkus Bakugan a massive +150 G-Power boost. For a battle example, you can call a Darkus Plitheon to stand and then throw down a Silver Vilantor Gear to give Plitheon its first G-Power boost. Then, devastate your opponent by using Enchanted Silver and add even more Gs to Darkus Plitheon!

BATTLE TACTIC #7: POWER UP WITH DUAL ATTRIBUTES – JULY 2010

from bakugan.com

BATTLE TACTIC #7: POWER UP WITH DUAL ATTRIBUTES – JULY 2010

POWER UP WITH DUAL ATTRIBUTES

Battle Gear works great when you focus your force around two different attributes.

To get started making a dual-attribute force, take your Battle Gear and look at their reference cards. Each reference card has two special abilities, for two different attributes. Let’s look at the Battle Gear reference card, Battle Crusher.

It has the Haos ability: You get +50 G-Power for each Gate card in your enemy’s used pile if your enemy has more Gate cards in their used pile than you do.

And, it has the Darkus ability: If your opponent has a Gear or Trap at the battle, you get +50 G-Power.

Let’s say you want to build a force around the Battle Crusher Battle Gear card.

Start with your three best G-Powered Bakugan with those attributes. Make sure you have at least one Haos and at least one Darkus. Then, look for Ability cards that benefit both Haos and Darkus, so you’ll be able to use them no matter which of your Bakugan you roll.

Battle Tactic #6: Deploying Your Battle Gear – June 2010

From Bakugan.com and reposted on BakuganTactics.com:

BATTLE TACTIC #6: BATTLE GEAR – JUNE 2010

Now that you’ve selected your Battle Gear, it’s time to use them in battle. Using your Battle Gear is an important strategy to winning the game. During your brawls, you will want to maximize the full potential of your Battle Gear by considering your arsenal and your timing.

DEPLOYING YOUR BATTLE GEAR

First things first, you should try to only deploy your Battle Gear on Bakugan that have matching attributes. It’s obviously not the best to add Battle Gear that have Special Abilities for Pyrus and Darkus to a Haos Bakugan.

Keep in mind that if you deploy Battle Gear on a Gate card whose color matches the Battle Gear’s icon — Copper, Silver, or Gold — you get to choose which Special Ability to use.  Being able to use a specific Battle Gear Special Ability can spell the difference between crushing your opponent and losing the Gate Card!

Always keep in mind that your Bakugan gets the Battle Gear’s G-Power bonus whether or not its attribute matches the Battle Gear’s Special Abilities on the Reference Card. It might be a good play to deploy your Battle Gear for its G-Power alone.

Alternately, you can deploy a Trap and a Battle Gear in the same battle. This can let you use a Battle Gear’s Special Ability even if your Bakugan doesn’t match either of its Special Ability attributes! Using a Trap and a Battle Gear in the same battle uses up a lot of your resources all at once though, so be careful. Of course, if you can win your third Gate Card by deploying a Trap and Battle Gear at once, go for it! Remember, if you win the third and final battle you win the game.

While you’re battling, also note that you get to bring Battle Gear back from your Used pile to your Unused pile at the same time as your Bakugan. This can really affect when you choose to play your Battle Gear.

I hope you’ll use this month’s tips during your next brawl in order to maximize your arsenal on the battle field.

BATTLE TACTIC #5: BATTLE GEAR – MAY 2010

BATTLE TACTIC #5: BATTLE GEAR – MAY 2010

Moving right along with Battle Gear, one of your first decisions when creating your “team” will be choosing your Battle Gear. Now, this can be a fairly simple task, so let’s take a look at your options.

PICKING YOUR BATTLE GEAR

When you’re getting ready to play, you can choose up to two Battle Gear and/or two Bakugan Trap. This means you can pick two Battle Gear, OR two Bakugan Trap, OR one Battle Gear and one Trap.

So which Battle Gear do you choose?

You could just pick the highest G-Power Battle Gear that you have, but using Battle Gear that matches the attributes of your Bakugan can be great too, even if that gear doesn’t have the highest G-Power.

Besides choosing by G-Power, you may want to consider your strategy using your Bakugan attribute(s).

One strategy is to play with all Bakugan of the same attribute: all Ventus or all Sub Terra, for example. Or, since each Battle Gear has special abilities for two different attributes, you can mix and match Bakugan with two different attributes and still get to use the special abilities on your Battle Gear Reference Cards.

Another advantage to picking a two-attribute combo of Bakugan is that you’ll have more flexibility during play. You’ll be able to pick which of your Bakugan to roll based on which of the Battle Gear’s abilities you want!

Choose wisely. Create your ultimate combo. Devastate your opponent.

For more information on how to use Battle Gear, visit the Bakugan Gameplay FAQ here.

With so many options, feel free to experiment with different combinations and soon you’ll hone in on the Battle Gear strategy that works best for your Bakugan “team”!

Battle Tactic #4: Battle Gear – April 2010

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!
