Emo0114 "Seven hells, this bow is heavy! This extra power better be worth breaking my arms for."
―Anna using the Juggernaut for the first time in battle, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
  • EBF4
  • EBF5

The Juggernaut is a Bomb-elemental bow available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Juggernaut is an angular bow made of metal piping with two spiked plates attached to the front. Its arrows are made of metal with a black ball with silver spikes for a head; their tails end in metal projections instead of feathers, resembling a tiny trident in EBF4 and a "V" in EBF5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Juggernaut is a powerful and remarkably well-rounded offensive bow, boasting great Attack and strong defenses in exchange for subpar Magic Attack and an Evade penalty. While the Juggernaut has mighty stats, it is worth noting that Anna lacks any Bomb skills, meaning that the only attacks it can boost are Hand Bombs and its own bonus skill. As such, the player may prefer to use the Thorn Bow instead; it strengthens Anna's Poison skills while having the same attack power as the Juggernaut. On the other hand, the Juggernaut has a unique combination of offense and defense which is virtually unparalleled among Anna's bows, as well as providing her with a means of inflicting some Bomb damage; whether or not that compensates for its lack of a meaningful elemental boost is up to the player.

The Juggernaut resists Bomb, but is weak to Earth. The Bomb resistance does not become an immunity at Level 5, but the Earth weakness remains consistent no matter how much it has been forged.

Normal

The Juggernaut grants average bonuses to both Attack and Magic Attack, a small HP bonus, significant boosts to Defence and Magic Defence, and also a small Evade penalty. It has a remarkably high chance of inflicting Dispel with weapon-elemental attacks, but players are more likely to use Nitro Arrow/Nitro Blitz, which do the same thing while benefitting from the weapon's boost to Bomb skills. It can also make foes Surrender more quickly, potentially allowing the player to streamline battles by not having to land a final blow quite as often.

While primarily a defensive weapon, the Juggernaut is a decent "generalist" bow that can support the party with reasonably powerful attacks and heals, reliable Dispels, and high damage to Bomb-weak foes.

The Juggernaut resists Dispel, Confuse, Stagger and Stun, becoming immune to all of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Juggernaut is a fine weapon for a prolonged siege, with great boosts to Defence and Magic Defence  and an even better increase to HP; however, it slightly reduces Evade and offers mediocre Attack and Magic Attack bonuses. It has a significant chance to Stagger foes with weapon-elemental attacks, but this can be difficult to use consistently, since it has a high chance to Confuse Anna at the start of every turn.

However, the Alt Juggernaut compensates for its wielder's frequent bouts of Confusion with copious amounts of artillery support. Between every round of combat, it has a high chance of casting Machine Guns, a decent chance of casting Sea Bomb and may occasionally cast M.O.A.B.. That said, the bow's low offensive stats mean the damage will generally not be very high.

It is best used for a tanking build, as its frequent bouts of Confusion can greatly hinder support or offensive duties. Its array of automatic skills can also be useful for challenges that limit the party's size (like Anna's solo challenge in the Battle Arena or the 2-player battles in the Data Bunker). 

The Alt Juggernaut resists Dispel, Confuse, Stagger and Stun, becoming immune to all of them at Level 5.

Found in the Waste Disposal Plant, behind and left of the Copper Block in the danger room. To get in, turn on switches (scattered in and around the Waste Disposal Plant) labelled II, III, VI, IX and X, and turn off the rest. The last switch is reached from the Temple of Godcat much later in the game.
