Machine Guns (named Tank Guns in EBF4 and simply Tank in EBF3) is a Bomb-elemental skill used by Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5.

Description

Upon casting, the Valkyrie Tank (Neon Valkyrie in EBF5) will fire its dual machine guns at the entire enemy wave, hitting them multiple times for Bomb-elemental physical damage. Seemingly due to the rapid-fire nature of the guns, this skill suffers from slightly reduced Accuracy (except in EBF5, where the skill has normal accuracy).

In EBF3 and EBF4, the skill is generally a direct downgrade from Air Strike, due to the latter having higher damage output in effectively all situations. However, EBF5 gave the skill some major buffs; it has better effective power (due to almost twice as many hits as before), it no longer suffers from an Accuracy penalty, and it also has a shorter cooldown than Air Strike; in fact, it's one of the most powerful skills with a 1-turn cooldown. It is also Lance's only unique physical skill that is not weapon-elemental; along with Big Bullet, it is one of the main abilities for physical Lance builds.
