The Battle Chip Gate (バトルチップゲート) is the first add-on peripheral for the Battle Network series. You are able to send Battle Chips you purchased and use them in select games.

Mega Man Battle Network 4

Starting up the game with the Gate attached, unlocks Operation Battle mode on the title screen.

Operation Battle

In this mode, the player sends real life Battle Chip to their Navis while having limited control over them. The controls are different than normal gameplay as well:

Button Usage
Left/Right Tells the Navi which column they should be on, when they can.
Up The option to get Navi to follow the enemy in the same row as much as possible, or avoid the same row as much as possible.
Down The option for the Navi to change the tactic from either using the buster, its special weapon, or not attacking.
Holding L The Navi stands still and slotting in chips lets you perform a Program Advance.
Start Pause

The gauge increases over time and the more hits you land. It decreases if you are hit or use up to send Battle Chips. Chips you are able to send are dependent on the gauges:

Color Battle Chip
Yellow Standard Chip
Blue Mega Chip
Red Giga Chip

The mode goes through all version-exclusive Navis. The player is rewards with a star on the Operation Battle screen once finished,

Rockman EXE 4.5 Real Operation

Operation Battle is changed to how it was handled from 4. Also, the Gate can be used for the entirety of the game instead of being locked to one mode. However the real life chip use can be depleted, and cannot be restored until you jack out or find a Gold Program to restore it.

4.5 Battle Chip Gate can also VS Battle Network 4 Battle Chip Gate. It will copy 4's resources minus the battle music, and its Operation Battle Mode transforms into 4's as well.

Mega Man Zero 3

On the title screen, slotting-in certain Battle Chips instantly unlock mini games that would have otherwise needed a different requirement to unlock.
