Plastics Competitive Combos List

Attack

Smash Attack

Smash Attack combinations aim to bludgeon the opponent out of the ring through brute force, though some can beat the stamina out of opponents and go for the outspin, especially on SG Metal Flat Base (Gaia Dragoon V Version) or higher LAD CGB setups.


Hyper Aggressive Smash (indicated by an [H]): Hyper Aggressive Attack Rings and Setups are those which require significant recoil control (without sacrificing a significant amount of speed) to perform competitively, but once this is done hit noticeably harder than more conventional choices. This almost always requires the use of SG Grip Change Base Tip/Defense Grip Base (though CGB can be okay sometimes) and Wide Defense or a Ten Wide of similar weight, especially against heavier opponents. They generally benefit from the addition of a Heavy Metal Core (whereas standard Smash Attack setups generally want to have the lightest possible SG) and can be worth trying Heavy WDs with to trade some motion recoil control for rotational recoil control (I usually find this counter-productive but YMMV). They do tend to struggle with inability to outspin Grip Defense, though some of the stronger ARs such as Square Edge still have a chance to KO it.


Simple yet brutally effective, Smash Attack is the classic risk vs reward type, with some challenge to use and risk of self-KO rewarded with the ability to have a decent chance against just about anything. Various setups are affordable to boot, making it a great type - if you can keep it in the dish.


Attack Rings

Note: The Black version of Great Dragon and Green version of Gyro Defense seem to suffer from a similar ailment to Neo Cross Horn, which has been removed from the list as a result (though the Hasbro version may be acceptable), and should not be used.


***: Parts marked with this are currently illegal under World Beyblade Organization Rules. If you plan to play in a WBO-Approved Tournament with them, it may be worth asking your host to get an exception to the rules to allow them to be played - I am happy to have discussions on this as I strongly, strongly believe they should not be banned - but I do not think approval for that rule variation would be hard to gain anyways - just ask!

Spin-Stealing Attack/Offensive Zombies

While perhaps worth considering Balance or even Stamina types (due to Gyro Defense in high-LAD versions (i.e. CGB or FACB) being one of the best Zombie setups as well, though it is somewhat unique), Spin-Stealing Attack aims to use the destabilisation from Upper Attack ARs, as well as some degree of Smash or Upper Attack, to destabilise and outspin opponents, or just straight KO them. Viable attack rings are defined by their ability to KO things the type can usually not outspin, like Zombies. Overall this makes for a very competitive type with a good spread of match ups, though work is needed to control the tip (mostly just consisting of steep banking). The type does cover a fairly wide spectrum between offensive power and LAD ability, with Defense Grip Base 2 + SG (Free Shaft Version) being much better at catching the ridge but Customize Grip Base and Full Auto Clutch Base having much better LAD.


Note: Aim to use opposite spin to opponent for full effectiveness, though this is not always critical - Same Spin is sometimes more useful when trying to KO.

Defense

Circle Survivor Defense

A staple competitive type, Circle Survivor Defense uses Circle Survivor as a shield against opposing Beyblades and a method to force smash them into the stadium floor and then use its semi-free spinning top section for momentum to outspin them even after toppling. Ten Heavy is the conventional choice, basically making a pseudo-compact with a giant shield. Circle Survivor Defense is very versatile with a wide range of good match ups (though their somewhat unusual nature means they can sometimes lose to random jumbles of parts (including some particularly hilarious things at times), they do well against most suboptimal combos), and very hard to KO in general, to the point it impacts the Attack meta, forcing them to use taller setups than they would otherwise want to. However it is very susceptible to hits above the dish - part of why such compact setups are used for the upper half, alongside Right EG (Circle Defenser) being preferred for extra height. Overall, they are one of the more dominant types in the game, especially as they are fairly accessible, and something anyone attending a tournament needs a reliable answer to - usually a well optimised, very stable spin-stealing combo or something able to hit clear over Circle Survivor.

Circle Survivor/Weight Defense Hybrid (Fixed Circle Survivor Combo)

Somewhat similar to Circle Survivor Defense, this setup semi-fixes Circle Survivor in place for a more conventional Weight Based Defense setup from the weight provided by First Clutch Base (Zeus Version) and Circle Survivor - on par with even the heaviest Weight Based Defense setups, though it generally uses defensive ARs rather than the more assertive ARs of regular Weight Based Defense due to lower aggression and less compact distribution making those ARs more of a liability than a benefit. They are somewhat less susceptible to high hits and outspins by weird esoteric jumbles of parts, but overall regular Circle Survivor combos are usually better against other competitive types. These are nonetheless highly effective defensively and pack solid Survival to boot.

Defensive Zombies

Another of the more powerful types in the game, but generally relatively expensive to optimise, Defensive Zombies focus on use of Bearings, Low Recoil, and LAD to outspin opponents, but using their defining part, SG (Bearing Version 2) Shaft for grip. Compared to Zombies this trades off a lot of stability and some same-spin performance in exchange for being remarkably difficult to KO. They are sometimes capable of aggressive movement with correct launching to KO their opponents but can struggle with other Zombies and depending on setup they can either be an easy answer to or a bad choice against Circle Survivor Defense - this all comes down to Stability. For stability, SG (Bearing Version 2) Casings are preferred, but Neo SG (Double Bearing Version) is useful for greater defense while still being highly effective - the poorer stability really only becomes an issue with the highly obscure Metal Bit Chip. Their one big risk is getting a same-spin match up vs anything that can stall them out, and the most powerful attackers do still retain some chance of overcoming their grip, resulting in extremely forceful KOs. Nonetheless, they are a serious contender for the “best” all-around combo type, especially as they match up well against other popular combos.

Wide Survivor can be used for increased Spin-Stealing ability (as well as better LAD with certain Blade Bases), but this results in a combo more in line with a regular Zombie due to the significant reduction in defensive ability.

Grip Defense

Grip Defense makes use of Defense Grip Base’s Rubber Sharp Tip (or SG Grip Change Base's, which is better but generally won’t survive a match due to gold plastic syndrome), to withstand the hardest hits. The stamina is abysmal, but as a counter to Hyper Aggressive Attack they are arguably the top choice, though usually even here they need to stick to Wide Defense to avoid random outspin losses (especially as there is really minimal defensive trade-off, Ten Heavy is mostly listed for accessibility). Note that this type puts heavy strain on the AR so there is significant breakage risk.

Overall, these combos have a very limited scope but are absolutely the best at what they do.

Weight Based Defense

Perhaps as much a Balance type as a Defense type, Weight Defense is what it says on the tin - pack on weight and use that to take hits. This works pretty well, but they do tend to be a bit easier to KO than other defense types, depending how recoily their opponent is (they do prey on recoil quite well), but with particularly heavy SG Metal Ball Bases and use of high-weight Bit Chips and parts, they can begin to pose a significant threat to even the best Attack types. In exchange for this however, they have excellent same spin performance and some offensive ability, as well as a degree of Force Smash or Destabilisation if they use certain Attack Rings, making them highly versatile - the reason they have been a staple of competitive play for years. CMCB is a more recent addition, being slightly lighter but catching the ridge better and having better stamina than SG Metal Ball Base - it is often the more versatile choice and usually preferred, however particularly heavy samples of SG Metal Ball Base can create heavy enough combos to pose a big defensive threat. Ten Heavy vs Wide Defense is a matter of taste - Ten Heavy is harder to KO and more effective with aggressive launching and has somewhat better grinding ability and is necessary for a full defensive focus, whereas Wide Defense provides better stamina and more aggression throughout the match. Smash Turtle has traditionally been the most famous Attack Ring for the type to capitalise on its advantages (especially as it was used heavily by the most well known Weight Defense player (and perhaps patron saint of the type), Guardian Odin), but lower recoil options can be used to emphasise defense a little more, and Upper Dragoon has its fans for somewhat of a Balance focus. Overall, very versatile with some chance against just about anything, Weight Based Defense is a time-tested competitive type.

Survival (Stamina)

Zombies

Perhaps the most famous type in Plastics and HMS, Zombies are the mainstream Stamina type of plastics, being good enough that Stamina in Plastics mostly consists of opposite spin match ups, with more conventional Stamina not really being relevant in a generation where balance types can reliably KO them - an issue the more popular zombies manage somewhat better. They do have effective Same-Spin performance, though with Wide Survivor they do struggle a lot more due to the resulting light weight making them easily knocked about and ground down. The goal is simple - stay round and low recoil to maintain contact for spin stealing, keep the same RPM as the opponent, and then outspin them through superior LAD. Practicality brings variety to the type - Spiral Change Base is objectively the best LAD part in Plastics, but the abysmal KO and same-spin Stamina makes it very risky. Poor stability means Circle Survivor can prey on tips such as Bearing Base Shaft and SG (Bearing Version) Shaft, so while they were previously go-to’s, they are nowadays often passed up for Neo SG (Double Bearing Version) which also has better LAD due to newer use with Customize Grip Base. It can also be disastrous for the previously famous Gyro Defense, which has major stability issues due to its shape. However, the recent use of FACB Shaft in Customize Grip Base for LAD and its high stability has seen it re-emerge from the depths of low tier-2. Overall, Zombies are very capable of outspinning opponents and can be difficult for balance to KO, plus they can make some use of Weak Launching to their advantage. Defensive Zombies do provide some practicality, but Zombies have the stamina advantage for same-spin match ups. This makes them the go-to stamina type. Left Spin naturally sees more use than Right due to the meta and most unoptimised combos being largely Right Spin, but Right Spin does have some great ARs available.

Balance/Misc

Compacts

The classic Plastics Balance combo, and one of the greatest representations of all-around Balance types in any series of Beyblade, compacts focus on being highly compact (duh) - as much weight in as small a package as possible, then using small, low recoil Attack Rings (though the most popular and generally most well-rounded, like Tiger Defenser, pack surprisingly solid offense to round out coverage). This makes them hard to KO and allows them to grind down opponents or use their sheer momentum and slightly aggressive design to knock out defensively weaker opponents. They also tend to be quite accessible, and this, combined with their reliable performance against less optimal combos (especially in the case of the very versatile Change tips), makes them popular at tournaments and a fairly reliable go to when going in blind. Metal Change Base is usually the better Blade Base but is harder to control which can take it too close to the ridge vs Attack, however the versatility and solid Stamina and LAD make it overshadow other options. Metal Ball Base does pack in greater maximum weight and more consistent behaviour, and Customize Metal Change Base takes the type into Weight Based Defense territory. Semi-Flat Base is… there. It’s fine, sure - predictable and accessible. Wide Defense sees some use, primarily in Left Spin to trade off defence for survival/spin stealing and aggression. Without it, Left Spin compacts tend to be quite obscure due to lack of low recoil, offensively capable compact Attack Rings in this direction. With it, they have a surprising spread of match ups against many popular combinations, especially thanks to the surprisingly good LAD of Metal Change Base. Overall, they have earned their place as a go-to competitively, though many competitive combos are specifically assessed on their ability to defeat Compacts which makes them somewhat less safe in an ideal meta, they do very well against generic non-optimal combos (“tourney filler”) as well as having a shot against a lot of competitive types nonetheless.

Driger V2 Customs

Driger V2 is far and away the best stock Beyblade Takara released for Plastics, and goes toe-to-toe with Wolborg MS from HMS for best Stock Beyblade overall in the context of their respective generations. The incredible chemistry of its parts allow it to basically make up a type of its own. Its weight, weight distribution, and versatile behaviour make for a powerful all-rounder, being capable of outspinning a surprising number of combinations via weight distribution and destabilisation, ramping attackers up its ramps for KOs (Left Spin, particularly) while withstanding their hits somewhat with its weight and walled sides, and knocking out Survival and some Balance and Defense types, only really struggling with Defensive Zombies and Circle Survivor Defense. Some simple upgrades such as an HMC and Wide Defense provide straight upgrade to functionality, but other properties, particularly aggression, may be emphasised through other parts with inevitable trade-offs for doing so.

Force Smash

A relatively new and generally obscure competitive Type, Force Smash combos have a very narrow range of usable parts, however they do have a good spread of match ups, again being a type with a chance against most opponents. High weight (especially with SG Grip Base Tip, which brings them close to Weight Defense levels) can make them viable against Attack (though their tendency to be near the ridge and not catch it super well is a problem, their momentum helps compensate), and their signature part- Smash Turtle - allows them to Force Smash and grind opponents into the dish, resulting in outspins against many types, including decent winrates against Circle Survivor Defense and Compacts. Meanwhile, the aggressive rubber tips allow KOs of defensively poor opponents that would otherwise outspin them and help enhance grinding through handling rotational recoil. Lack of understanding of the type combined with having to work with rubber tips is a big inhibitor of tournament presence (and Deck Format basically removes them from the game, illustrating its unsuitability for Plastics), but overall they can be a shockingly effective type that many opponents may not be prepared for.


Note: Same spin is generally better for more effective grinding, but both are usable.
