How to Play the Raid Duel

Quattro Raid Duel Links World.png

The skies over the Duel Links world have darkened, and looming over the horizon is the monster that must be defeated, Number 15: Gimmick Puppet Giant Grinder.

Raid Duel Coop.PNG

Duelists all around the world must come together to elminate this threat and stop Quattro from wreaking any more havoc. Everyone is helping each other in dealing as much damage as possible versus Quattro. However, in order to be able to duel against him, Duelists need to collect a special type of currency called the Invitations from Quattro.

Collect enough of these, and you'll be able to duel against Quattro and his Gimmick Puppet Giant Grinder as much as you would like.

Level 2000 Quattro.PNG

Starting on a certain date, Quattro can be dueled up to a Level cap of Lv. 2000! Be prepared t o duel against him multiple times to clear out his Life Points!

Collecting Invitations from Quattro

Invitations from Quattro Header.PNG
Invitations from Quattro only appear during the span of this specific Raid Duel event, and they are collected whenever you play the following types of Duels:

  • Versus Legendary Duelists (Gate duels do not count)
  • Against Standard Duelists
  • Versus The Vagabond
  • Ranked Duels (through Event Missions)

Keep Dueling as much as you can to keep battling against Quattro!

Assisting Duelists

When you clear out your own Raid's cumulative HP, you will be given a chance to assist other players who are challenging the Raid as well! Assisting other players will not cost you any Invitations from Quattro, so feel free to assist other players and Duel against Quattro to your heart's content!

However, assisting other players will not give you Quattro's specific level to duel against, so you will not know how much LP he has on estimate until when the Duel begins.

Starting on a certain date, supporting other players in completing the Raid Duels will grant you Gems for up to three times a day! Make sure to take the time to assist fellow Duelists in taking down Primo!# Raid Duel - Special Clauses

Raid Duel - Special Clauses

Timer Mechanic

Giant Grinder Raid Boss.PNG

Unlike most duels, the Raid Duel has a special timer mechanic that makes the Duel last for only 10 turns. When the 10th turn finishes, Quattro will immediately use his event-exclusive skill That's not good enough to defeat me!, that forces the Duel to end in a Draw.

If by the 10th turn his Life Points have not reached 0, whatever Damage you managed to inflict will go towards your event points as compensation.

2-on-1 Tag Duel

2-on-1 Tag Duel.PNG
Once in a while, Duelists will be given the opportunity to fight against Quattro in a unique Tag Duel, where he fights both you and a partner character in a singue Duel!

Tag Duel Sharing Resources.PNG

You and your partner will be sharing one field, particularly the Monster Zones, Spell and Trap Zones, Field Spell Zone and Graveyard. You both also culmulatively have 6000 LP to work with.

Players participating in this handicap Tag Duel have two options for partners, each having their own exclusive skills for the Raid Duel.

Character Skill & Effect
Reginald Kastle Icon.pngReginald "Shark" Kastle Armored Xyz
The ATK of monsters you control is multiplied by 5 until the end of the turn. In addition, equip "Black Ray Lancer" from outside your Deck to 1 Xyz Monster you control as an Equip Card. While "Black Ray Lancer" is equipped with this effect, that monster can attack twice during each Battle Phase.
This Skill can only be used once per Duel.
Kite Tenjo Icon.pngKite Tenjo Overlay Multiplier
The ATK of monsters on your field is multiplied by 2 times the number of Xyz Materials on the field, until the end of this turn. This will be increased by a further 2 times if you have "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" or "Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon DRagon" on your field.
This Skill can be used once per Duel if there is at least 1 Xyz Material attatched to a monster on the field.
This partner will be unlockable for this event on 09/23 after fulfilling certain conditions.

Partner Manual Control.PNG

Another special addition in the Tag Duel during this event is that you now have the option to manually control your partner. Make sure to take a look at the Partner Information section if you want to turn this function on!

Extra Deck Damage Boost

Because Quattro has an unusually high level throughout this event, he will have a much higher LP value compared to standard duels, sometimes starting with a minimum of 20000 LP.

To compensate for this, Extra Deck monsters will be able to inflict triple the Battle Damage againt Quattro! Decks that heavily rely on the Extra Deck will have a much better chance to clear out the harder Raid Duels!

Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon.png

If Duelists happen to run a copy of Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, its Xyz Monster variant Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, or any member of the Number Archtype, do not hesitate to play the cards when given the chance. Both cards will be able to inflict five times the Battle Damage instead of three.

Forbidden Skills and Cards

An additional challenge for the participating Duelists is that there are certain Skills and Cards that are forbidden when Dueling against Primo, on top of the current Forbidden/Limited list in standard Duels. Keep note of the following when building a Deck specifically against Quattro.
