Crystal Hunter (クリスタルハンター Kurisutaru Hantā) is the weapon that X obtains from Crystal Snail in Mega Man X2. When equipped with this weapon, X fires a small crystalline blast, which can encase enemies in crystal. The crystals can then be used as stepping platforms. Dashing into a crystallized enemy will shatter the crystal. Enemies shattered this way will always instantly die and drop Weapon Energy capsules, both large and small, at random. When fully charged, this weapon temporarily slows time and distorts the surrounding area.

While usually only effective against smaller enemies, Crystal Hunter is also Overdrive Ostrich's weakness, being able to temporarily freeze him.

  • Through this weapon, X is able to unlock a type of weather that doesn't normally appear in the Weather Control Center. It crystallizes the Weather Crystals and makes a dark haze appear over the stage, preventing most enemies from attacking.
