The Gunslinger is a member of the Slinger family of enemies in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. They roam in ancient areas like Kitten Kingdom Ruins or near mechanical factories like the Waste Disposal Plant; in EBF5, they appear in the Data Bunker. It can often be seen together with its stabby counterpart, the Swordslinger.

Appearance

The Gunslinger has a very similar appearance compared to its Swordslinger brethren, being a floating robot wearing a long, old, tattered brown coat. Its metallic face is partially covered by a wide brimmed cowboy hat. The only difference between the two is the decoration on their hat; while the Swordslinger appears to have part of a sabre attached to the front of its hat, the Gunslinger has a magazine clipped to the back instead.

Overview

The Gunslinger primarily attacks with Bomb and Thunder attacks which repeatedly hit random targets. Its attacks are overall low powered and not very threatening, save for Headshot, an inaccurate attack with a very high chance to instantly down its target.

Adventure Story

In this spinoff game, Gunslingers appear as enemies in the second area of the game (the Desert). They move back and forth on their platforms, but attempt to chase Matt if they spot him. Periodically, they will raise their cannons and fire a large bullet at Matt, which must be dodged. As usual, Matt can also take damage if he touches the Gunslinger itself.

Unlike the main EBF games, the Gunslinger does not have a melee-focused counterpart. However, it does have an upgraded version/alternate species that appears in later levels: the Black Gunslinger. This version of the Gunslinger is identifiable by its black clothing and new hat design. It moves faster, does more damage, and fires three bullets at a time.

This section is incomplete. You can help Epic Battle Fantasy Wiki by adding required information to it.
To do: Exact stats. "moves faster" and "does more damage" is not enough.

Summon

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The foe can be captured to be used as a summon. When summoned, the Gunslinger uses its Headshot against a single target. While cheap and powerful, the summon will always have at least a 50% chance of missing. It should be noted that since targets that are inflicted with Freeze and Stun are incapable of dodging, it's still guaranteed to hit them (the same applies for the EBF1 simulation foes, since they have 0 Evade).

EBF5 Foe Icon Gunslinger

  • Always has a 50% chance of hitting.
  • Ignores target evade stat, and defensive buffs.

Note: * Has a 50% chance of having its accuracy reduced to 0%.
Despite what the description says, it doesn't actually ignore foe Evade, meaning that against foes with extremely high Evade, the hit chance can be lower than 50%.

Trivia

  • As mentioned in concept art galleries of Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4, the design for the Gunslinger enemy came from a DeviantArt member named kmau.
