I know nentendo sometimes used those weird y screws (looks like Philips but has 3 slots instead of 4) if so that is what you will need.

You need a tri wing screw driver
Tri-wing Screwdriver for Nintendo Wii, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B000S6AG9G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_5MceAb4R2PPMS
Does this one count?

Looks like an EXTREMELY worn out phillips, a quarter of the screws inside my 2DS ended up like that after 2 disassemblies and rebuilds...

...but I never saw that happening to the bottom cover, if you're the first owner then I don't have a clue on how it ended that way, maybe it's some demo model?

Well, while I did some research, The limited edition 3ds xl and the normal 3Ds XL have different screws :/
