Steel Shark

The Steel Shark is a non-elemental gun available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.


The Steel Shark is a silver cannon styled to resemble a shark. The barrel is located in what would be the shark's mouth, surrounded by spikes resembling teeth. The upper plate on the gun has a vent resembling a large eye or a row of gills, and the trigger/grip resembles its pectoral fin. A pair of wires are visible on the back of the gun, connecting the "shark's" dorsal fin to its tail.

Stat-wise, 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. If used with Lance's weapon-elemental attacks, it inflicts Syphon, and its Unleash completely obliterates the foe's Magic Attack; these traits make the Steel Shark an effective counter to magic-wielding foes, even including Monoliths.

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 Steel Shark's advantages are its huge Magic Attack and reliable Syphoning abilities; in contrast, the Thunder Core and Red Vulcan both have the most powerful (if specific) offenses due to their elemental boosts, while the Shadow Blaster has useful resistances to Dark and Instant Death.

The Steel Shark provides Water and Syphon resistance, with the latter becoming an immunity at Level 5.

The Steel Shark is given to the player as a reward for completing a quest at Rock Lake for Bartolo.
