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 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, making it a good tool for countering 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 Thunder Core and Red Vulcan both have the most powerful offenses due to their elemental boosts. The Steel Shark has no elemental boosts but the highest Magic Attack in the game, plus it can reliably Syphon foes. The Shadow Blaster has no elemental boosts, but is still strong and 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.
