In normal fire, X sends out an anchor that bounces about for a while before self-destructing. Up to two Metal Anchors can be on the screen at once. When charged, barrage of metal statues shaped like Storm Eagle rain down that travel in a diagonal pattern across the screen. If X is hit at any time the charged attack is executed, the attack will be interrupted and Weapon Energy will be wasted. Metal Anchor is the only weapon in X's arsenal that can destroy the otherwise indestructible Nightmare Iron blocks that can found in certain stages.

- The statues of Storm Eagle raining down may be a reference to Metal Shark Player using DNA resurrection, as Storm Eagle is "resurrected" from a previous game.
