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.
