Below is a list of Special Weapons obtained by defeating the Mavericks in the game Mega Man X3, how X can use them to his advantage and the Maverick/Boss who is the most vulnerable to them. It should be noted that when X is using the weapon, the color of his armor changes.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Fires a glob of acid that splashes on contact.|
(Charged) - Two Acid Bursts are shot, but they bounce multiple times along the floor.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Ice darts are fired, and upon contact, turn into three-pointed shards that attach to the floor. The darts are bigger when fired underwater.|
(Charged) - A large ice shield is produced at the end of the X-Buster. After a period of time, it will detach and slide along the ground. If detached underwater, it becomes an object that X can ride to the water's surface.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Releases a ball that creates a high-gravity zone. Surrounding enemies are crushed by junk attracted to the ball.|
(Charged) - X fires releases a Gravity Well upward, generating a black hole. After a short time, the black hole settles in place and lifts enemies up towards it, similar to Gravity Man's Gravity Hold.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Fires an explosive charge that can attach itself to an enemy, stunning it. Large enemies are only stunned, whereas small enemies are stunned and then flown to the nearest enemy to achieve double damage.|
(Charged) - Four crosshairs appear around X and seek enemies. After targeting an enemy, a mini bee will home in on the target and attack it.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Scatters small bolts of energy in a spread-out manner.|
(Charged) - X releases a small ball that will continually spray small bolts of energy in all directions.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - The Spinning Blade fires two saw-like blades in front of him that curve back in an arc.|
(Charged) - A giant spinning saw held by an energy line is released. It will stop after a period of time, or after X spins it in a whole circle.
|Against||Neon Tiger, Blast Hornet|
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Up to three drills can be fired in a column formation to cause damage to up to three different enemies at the same time.|
(Charged) - A large spinning drill is created on the end of the X-Buster. It can be used to attach onto a wall, and will be lost after air dashing.
|Abilities||(Uncharged) - Three dynamos will appear around X, passing thunder bolts around in a triangle pattern, and then firing off in three directions. Continuously pressing the weapon fire button will invert the dynamos, prolonging the effect to three more times before the thunder bolts will leave.|
(Charged) - X will punch the ground, causing all grounded enemies to take damage. Two thunder bolts will then follow the ground in front of and behind X, causing damage on contact. X must be on the ground to use this weapon.
