Mobile Armor Battles
In SD Gundam Battle Alliance, fans will relieve and play famous iconic Gundam scenes and face off against rivaled suits. But not only do players face off against the likes of Sinanju, Epyon, and more but gamers will get a chance to face off against Mobile Armors as well. One of which is from the iconic rivalry of Kou Urake who pilots the GP03 Denobrium against his fate rival, Anavel Gato who pilot Zeon’s mobile armor, Neue Ziel from Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.
A special skill in SD Gundam Battle Alliance that uses 50% of players’ Break Gauge. Chain Breakers vary on the type of Mobile Suits players piloted and there are at least 2 types of breakers (Neutral & Reversal).
If you activate the chain breaker while your unit is attacking, the chain breaker will be activated as a “neutral”, and the “guard gauge” consumed when guarding. The boost gauge required for step dashes and fighting actions will be fully recovered, allowing you to further do lengthy combos.
Activate this chain when you are being attacked by enemy mobile units. It is an action specializing in defense that interrupts an enemy’s attack and blows it away, interrupting the enemy’s attack to reduce the damage it receives.
This gauge exists in powerful enemy suits such as enemy ace suits. In order to continuously attack a strong enemy, the balancer gauge must be reduced to break the enemy’s posture. Sub-attacks are effective in reducing the enemy’s balancer gauge.
Immediately after the enemy unleashes a big move, the balancer gauge will decrease significantly, so avoid the enemy’s big move and hit the sub attack to reduce it.
