In addition to the secret DNA codes, the Bakugan Battle Gear is one of the awesome new features to look forward to with the third Bakugan series, Bakugan Gundalian Invaders! Just as Bakugan New Vestroia introduced Special Attack Bakugan and Bakugan Traps, Bakugan Gundalian Invaders introduces Bakugan Battle Gear.
So far there are six different known Bakugan Battle Gear - the Battle Turbine, the Rock Hammer, the Vilantor, JetKor, AirKor and Twin Destructor. The Battle Gears have the same colors that normal Bakugan do, but their symbols are different. The symbols mean Gold, Silver, and Bronze, and they correspond to the Gate Cards of the same colors.
Bakugan Battle Gear comes with a 'Reference Card'. These cards are blue, and they are not in any used or unused piles - they simply detail the Battle Gear's special abilities. Battle Gear can be attached to a Bakugan of any attribute, and Reference Cards gives the Battle Gear special abilities. If the Battle Gear matches the color of the Gate, one can pick whichever ability from the card, regardless of attribute.
A player can have any combination of two Battle Gear and/or Traps, meaning they can have one Trap and one Battle Bear, or simply two Battle Gear.
