The Valkyrie Tank firing Tank Guns.

"Valkyrie, do you copy?! Machine gun that area in front of me right now!"
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

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.

EBF5 gave the skill some major buffs; it has a strong 140 base power for a multi-target attack, no accuracy issues, and a manageable 1 turn cooldown. While obviously useless for magic builds, it provides good multi-target power for physical set ups. Along with Big Bullet, it is one of the main abilities for physical Lance builds.
