The Cannon Turret is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is primarily found in the Iron Fortress, but also appears in various other locations such as in The Rapture.

Appearance

The Cannon Turret is a large, automated cannon with a small light on one side of the barrel and several antennae and wires on the back. It is primarily black and silver, with glowing red details similar to a Cosmic Monolith.

Like all Turrets, the Cannon Turret emerges from metallic panels in the ground or on the hull of the Neon Valkyrie. It is mounted on a pair of large hinges with red lights that allow it to rotate itself upwards when being deployed or retracted.

Overview

The Cannon Turret is an offensive support unit with equal proficiency in damage and disruption. It mainly attacks by shooting at the party, dealing heavy magical Bomb damage, but it can cast Electron Gun for several hits of moderate magical Thunder damage and a high chance of a two-turn Confuse. On the support side of things, it can designate a player as a Target for foes, cast Lock On to give an ally a massive Accuracy buff (and Good Luck on Hard or Epic Difficulty), and use Mute to try and Syphon a player's skills.

The simplest way to beat a Cannon Turret is to inflict Syphon on it; this will cause it to malfunction and immediately Surrender. Even without that, it has no resistances and few immunities (Wind, Bio, Poison, Virus, Stagger, and Confuse), with weaknesses to Water, Bomb, and especially Thunder and Earth (although the latter weakness becomes an immunity if it's mounted on the Neon Valkyrie). This makes it quite vulnerable to being debuffed to uselessness or immobilized via Freeze or Stun; applying Wet can make it even more vulnerable to the latter status effects while also increasing its serious Thunder weakness.

Unlike most foes in EBF5 and like other Turrets, the Cannon Turret cannot be captured to be used as a summon.

Battle Logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

  • If Syphoned → Surrender;
  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Big Blast;
  • If Berserked → Big Blast (1/2), Triple Shot (1/2);
  • Otherwise → Big Blast (1/4), Triple Shot (1/4);
    • If selected target already has Target → Mute (1/6), Lock On (1/6), Electron Gun (1/6);
    • Otherwise → Set Target (1/8), Mute (1/8), Lock On (1/8), Electron Gun (1/8).

* If Lock On's selected target already has at least a 10% Accuracy buff, it retargets to a different foe, unless no other foes are alive (unless no other targets are available).

Unlike most other foes, the Cannon Turret doesn't get a counter when Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled.

Trivia

  • Despite being the Neon Valkyrie's default Turret attachment, the Cannon Turret cannot be summoned by the tank during its boss fight; instead, the Neon Valkyrie will summon a Harpoon Turret, a Laser Turret, or a Nuclear Bomb.
  • While it has a passing resemblance to the Laser Turret of older games, the Cannon Turret also has similarities to the main cannon of the Valkyrie Tank, using powerful Bomb-based attacks, being the initial helper of the Neon Valkyrie, and not respawning when destroyed/deactivated.
