Heavy (ヘビー, Hebī) is a Forge Disc released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-03 Starter Ragnaruk Heavy Survive on July 18th, 2015.

Description

Heavy is a primarily circular Forge Disc, sporting a ring-like shape with numerous ridges on its interior that is interrupted by four rectangular protrusions designed to look like armored plates. As its name suggests, Heavy was the heaviest Forge Disc in the Burst System for a considerable period of time, until Gravity, which also weighs 21.6 grams, and Quarter, which weighs 21.8 grams were released. Despite this, Heavy is still one of the heaviest Forge Discs in the game, making it a popular choice for many Bladers. As its weight is a welcome asset to nearly any Beyblade, it enjoys a wide variety of uses on customizations of all types. Heavy's high weight and compact shape gives it a centralized weight distribution, making it particularly useful for Burst Attack as it will maximize the RPM of the Beyblade. This same weight distribution also makes it considerably more difficult to burst than Gravity, the other disc in its weight class, at the cost of a significant amount of Stamina. Because of this, it is a better option for a KO Defense combo than Gravity as KO Defense combos rely on high friction and weight to remain in the stadium, at the same time increasing their vulnerability to bursting. However, due to its weight, Heavy is still more prone to bursting than most lighter competitive Forge Discs such as Spread, Knuckle, and Armed.

Use in Attack Customizations

Heavy can be used in both the KO Attacker Xcalibur Heavy Xtreme and the Burst Attacker Valkyrie Heavy Yielding. Both of these combos benefit from Heavy's weight and weight distribution as it puts more force behind attacks in the case of the former, and maximizes the combo's RPM in the case of the latter.

Use in Defense Customizations

As Heavy's weight generally makes it a poor choice for Burst Defense, it has found use in the combo Wyvern Heavy Revolve. This combo has a solid mix of KO Defense and Burst Defense, while also having moderate amounts of Stamina.

Alternatively, Heavy can also be used in the KO Defense combo Neptune Heavy Unite. While this combo is incredibly difficult to knock out of the Stadium due to Heavy and Unite, and Neptune provides some insurance against bursting, it has poor Stamina and should only be used against Xtreme-based Attackers.

Use in Stamina Customizations

While Spread and Gravity are generally preferred over Heavy for Stamina purposes, Heavy can still be used to provide a passable performance in the combos Deathscyther Heavy Defense and Deathscyther Heavy Revolve.

Use in Balance Customizations

Heavy can be used in the Destabilizer combo Dark Deathscyther Heavy Orbit. As Destabilizers perform better when they are spinning at a higher RPM than their opponent, Heavy's weight distribution helps Dark Deathscyther destabilize opponents more effectively.

Alternatively, Heavy can be used in the Burst Defense/Stamina hybrid Odin Heavy Defense. Due to the weight, weight distribution, and shape of the Odin Layer, this combo performs much like the compacts of the Plastics era and is difficult to burst or outspin.

Overall

Heavy was once one of the heaviest Forge Discs in the game along with Gravity and Quarter and was the most common choice in Defense and Stamina combinations. However, with the release of Core Discs and Disc Frames, Heavy has become outclassed.

As such, Heavy is not a must have, but is instead a welcome addition to any blader's collection.
