Beyblade slingshock is a new series of Beyblades that have recently come out. It is a spinoff from the original Beyblade series, and it includes all kinds of fun features like launchers with lights, unique track pieces, and even on-the-go battle modes! I’m excited to see what other things this new generation of beys will bring to the table.
What is slingshock?
Slingshock (also known as chain grappling) is an ancient martial art of the Beylore system, taking advantage of gravity to increase one’s reach and power. A practitioner launches a ball with an elastic cord attached at their enemy, gaining velocity and impeding movement.This weapon can be used in several different ways.
The most common is when the practitioner makes a circular movement, launching their projectile up into the air to bounce back towards their enemy or another target. Another way would be to stand still, shooting your projectiles at an angle in order to have them bounce off objects to hit your enemy from behind cover.
With this in mind, it is harder to escape a slingshock attack, as they bounce in unpredictable ways. At the same time, it becomes more difficult for a practitioner to aim correctly.
What is Beyblade slingshock?
Beyblade slingshock refers to the process of spinning a Beyblade at maximum power in order to perform its most potent attacks. In laymen’s terms, when the Beyblade spins fast enough with its full force, it’ll have enough momentum to create a spectacular attack.
Beyblades can achieve slingshock in several ways. First, if the Beyblade gets hit by a launcher (the green thing that comes with every Beyblade), it will spin faster and faster until it reaches maximum speed. Another way to achieve slingshock is through an event where one Beyblade strikes another and makes it fly. The third way is to just have your Beyblade spinning at high speed for a long time, being launched into the opposing Beyblade.
Beyblades can also achieve a slingshock tumble, where they rotate continuously on one spot without even moving forward. This happens when there is enough force from a twist blast, which occurs when a Beyblade strikes the opposing Beyblade with such power that it spins around.
According to ancient Beylore, slingshock was used as a way to communicate with the gods. Using what they call “energy rings,” ancient bladers used what is now called slingshock as a form of meditation and prayer. This technique is what we know today as “Beyblade Burst.”
Modern Beyblades use energy rings to achieve burst mode, which happens when the Beyblade’s limiters are removed, and it turns red. During this period, the Beyblade can achieve a burst, which occurs when the Beyblade goes even faster and launches an almost never-ending attack.
Slingshock can achieve the speed of a projectile in Beylore (a special move in which the blades stay midair for a long time). If you ever wondered what a projectile is, one example is the Aquila vs. Voltaire battle.

How do you use a Beyblade Slingshock:
- Pick up the Beyblade SlingShock
- Place a Beyblade in the launcher
- Pull back on the launcher and release to send your Beyblade flying into battle!
- You can also add a little spin for more power by twisting your wrist while you launch it!
- If you’re feeling really daring, try launching two at once!
- To reload, just pick up another one from inside and pop it in like before! (It’s not rocket science!)
What Does Slingshock mode do?
Slingshock mode is an advanced mode for Beyblade battles in which the column of beys lined up by two players must face each other with one launcher.
Slingshock is the ultimate ancient way to test skill and power! There are three ways you can attack your opponent when they’re in slingshock. First, you can mirror launch, where you use that same spin, same speed, and everything they do, hitting them back at them. You could counter-attack, which means you just attack your opponent’s Bey without doing anything special. Lastly, there’s stealing their momentum, which my strategy boils down to in most games.
In conclusion, the Beyblade slingshock is a second-generation spinning top toy that can spin and move in many different ways. The way the blade moves varies depending on how you hold it with your fingers. Beyblades are not just for kids anymore!
