  • In EBF3 and EBF4

The Chainsaw Gun, previously known simply as the Chainsaw, is a non-elemental gun available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5.

Description

The Chainsaw Gun is a massive machine gun made purely out of copper and stainless steel. Its buttstock is decorated with hazard stripes, and it has two glowing yellow lights: one at the buttstock, and the other at the gun's chamber. A distinct feature of the Chainsaw Gun is a massive chainsaw blade running along the gun's entire length, functioning as a bayonet during close quarter combat.

In EBF5, the Chainsaw Gun had a slight redesign (notably losing the light on its buttstock) and gained a matching revolver, mostly black and grey with a hazard stripe on its frame under the barrel.

The Chainsaw Gun's primary function is to dish out heavy physical damage, though typically at the cost of a dreadful Magic Attack stat and occasional defensive penalties. Its exact parameters and resistances vary between games, but it typically has a low chance to inflict Instant Death through a special ability, as the weapon's own status effect, and/or through skills from the Sawblade tree.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Chainsaw doubles Lance's Attack and slightly boosts his Accuracy at the cost of weakening his Magic Attack and Magic Defence. More importantly, it also gives Lance vulnerabilities to Syphon and Stun, statuses that can easily hamper his offensive capability if not properly compensated for. Its Unleash has a chance to instantly kill the target, and it gains the ability to counter attacks with Lance's Normal Attack at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Chainsaw Gun has significant Attack, moderate Magic Attack, and a pinch of Evade. Aside from devastating physical damage, its specialty is Instant Death, which it can inflict with most weapon-elemental attacks (including its Normal Attack counter), its Sawblade unleash, and the Triple Sawblades it can randomly cast between turns. While the Death chance isn't especially high on any of these options, the sheer volume of ways to inflict it gives Lance a decent shot at hitting something with the status...if he doesn't kill them outright first.

The Chainsaw Gun is resistant to Instant Death, becoming fully immune at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Chainsaw Gun is an exemplary physical weapon that gives a tremendous boost to Lance's Attack, along with small increases to his Magic Attack and Evade. It improves the damage of non-elemental skills (such as its Sawblade unleash) and ignores defensive buffs on enemies it hits, and its mere presence can intimidate tree-based enemies into fleeing or going Berserk.

While Sawblade has an Instant Death chance that can be boosted by status infliction gear, it's so low that Lance should probably focus on the serious physical damage he can dish out with the Chainsaw Gun. The ability to ignore defensive buffs can let him score some hits while his allies work elsewhere, but it's usually better to just Dispel the buffs with Armor Crush if it's available.

The Chainsaw Gun resists Bomb, Stagger, Confuse, Doom, and Instant Death, with the latter four becoming immunities at Level 5.

Equip Remix

If you thought the Chainsaw Gun couldn't get any more terrifying, you haven't played the Equip Remix. The Alt Chainsaw Gun gives Lance up to 200% more Attack (and a little bit of Accuracy, Magic Attack and Evade), letting him inflict catastrophic damage with his physical skills. It also intimidates plant-based foes, boosts non-elemental skills, randomly unleashes Sawblade with Weapon-elemental skills (which benefits from its elemental boost and its huge Attack stat), and counters attacks with Armor Crush, allowing Lance to Dispel anything that survives being smashed by a giant gun with a built-in chainsaw.

Unfortunately, the Alt Chainsaw Gun also cuts its wielder; specifically, it cuts Lance's Defence and Magic Defence in half. Coupled with a lack of resistance to most dangerous and incapacitating status effects, it truly lives up to its description as a weapon that poses more risk to its wielder than its targets. Any foe that survives to take its turn will have a ripe opportunity to kill Lance unless he receives defensive support (and preferably Morale or Auto-Revive) from his equipment or teammates.

The Alt Chainsaw Gun resists Bomb, Stagger, and Confuse, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.
