The Steel Shark is a silver cannon styled to resemble a shark. The barrel is located in the shark's mouth, and the trigger resembles its pectoral fin.
The Steel Shark is Lance's most powerful magical gun, giving him a great boost in Magic Attack and MP; unfortunately, it does not boost any specific skills. It also provides nice boosts to both defences, though this comes at a minor cost of 5% Accuracy and Evade penalties. As a nice little bonus, if used with Lance's weapon-elemental attacks it inflicts Syphon, potentially shutting down magic-wielding foes. The Steel Shark's Unleash completely obliterates the foe's Magic Attack, though it is physical.
The Steel Shark is a viable weapon for the endgame, along with the Shadow Blaster, Thunder Core and Red Vulcan. Which one the player will use is a matter of personal preference. The Thunder Core and Red Vulcan both have an elemental boost for Plasma Field and Bullet Hell respectively; this gives them the highest power out of all of Lance's guns, and their elemental weaknesses are rare during the final battle. That said, the final boss can change resistances readily and spamming a single attack will probably bring up issues with the minion resistances. The Steel Shark, on the other hand, has superior stats and can efficiently damage with all of Lance's attacks. It is also capable of reliably Syphoning foes with Double Shot. However, its resistances are completely irrelevant for the final battle, and it cannot outdo Thunder Core or Red Vulcan with their elemental boost. The Shadow Blaster has the power of the Thunder Core but lacks an elemental boost, however it has incredibly useful resistances due to the ability to resist the most frequently occurring element in the final area and Instant Death.
