Double Shot is a weapon-elemental skill available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5.

Description

A brief animation shows Lance loading two bullets into his currently equipped weapon, then firing both shots at a targeted Foe. Starting from EBF4's Battle Mountain update, if the target is killed by the first shot, Lance will automatically aim the second shot at a different foe.

Double Shot is essentially a more powerful version of Lance's Normal Attack much like Snipe, dealing respectable damage and hitting twice, meaning it is useful for ensuring status effects land. Furthermore, later games give it a retargeting ability that allows Lance to pick off a weakened foe and potentially damage another enemy with his second shot. That said, Lance is typically not meant for physical damage and so using Double Shot may be seen as a waste of MP. In EBF5, this is no longer an issue with the removal of MP and the lack of Cooldown on Double Shot, meaning Lance can spam it endlessly in lieu of using a normal attack.

The re-targeting feature is particularly useful when farming foes that can spawn others (such as the Yellow Wasp).

Lance already has Double Shot at Level 2 when he joins the party in the Crystal Caverns. Since the Battle Mountain update, Double Shot (as well as Unload) will target another enemy in the wave if the initial target is eliminated. This makes it useful for farming Yellow Wasps and the like.

Lance joins the party with Double Shot already learned at Level 1. Apart from his Normal Attack and some shared skills, Double Shot is Lance's only physical skill (and one of his few skills in general) that does not have a cooldown; as such, it can utilized as a consistent means to inflict status effects. In fact, it is often a better idea to have Lance use Double Shot instead of his Normal Attack unless specifically aiming to land an unleash.
