The vortex spin is an attack used by both the Quad and its massive sister mechanism, Quadraxis. The Quad will bring its legs together on the ground and begin to rapidly spin around, generating a tractor effect that can draw in enemies. The Quad will build up intense levels of heat and need to release a venting system to cool off, although a kinetic charge can target the system and destroy the Main Body, forcing the Command Module to detach and continue fighting. The Boost Ball can also disrupt the spin attack. Quadraxis' version of the attack is much more powerful, although it is not capable of moving during the attack, unlike Quads. Samus can avoid the attack by being far away from it, while Beam fire, the Boost Ball and/or Screw Attack can disrupt it.
