The Super Snipe ZX (known simply as the Super Snipe before EBF5) is a gun available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5.

Description

The Super Snipe ZX mostly resembles a real life anti-tank rifle. It has a monopod that allows Lance to stabilize when firing. The Super Snipe ZX is one of the few guns in the game to feature aiming assistance in the form of a giant scope on top of the gun.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 5, the Super Snipe ZX was made slightly more compact and gained some dark grey details, along with a red orb in the barrel. It also alters Lance's revolver to have a black body with red accents near the barrel and a smaller version of the main gun's scope.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Super Snipe is a Wind gun with below-average bonuses to Attack and Magic Attack. It also comes with great Accuracy and good Evade, although the former is typically irrelevant. The Super Snipe boosts Snipe, fittingly enough, and gains a small chance to inflict Instant Death at Level 5. Overall, the Super Snipe is a mediocre weapon that can generally be replaced very easily, with a niche usage against evasive or over-leveled foes.

The Super Snipe resists Accuracy debuffs and Stun, both of which become immunities at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Now non-elemental, the Super Snipe has below-average bonuses to Attack and Magic Attack, but gives a large boost to Accuracy and a significant boost to Evade. It also has a low chance of inflicting Instant Death; sadly, these are not overly useful traits with its terrible offenses. As such, other weapons will be much more consistent, assuming one is using Lance in the first place.

The Super Snipe resists Stun and Syphon, becoming immune to both at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Super Snipe ZX has strong Attack and pitiful Magic Attack, and also has great Evade and outstanding Accuracy (though the usefulness of this is debatable). It counters attacks with Snipe, unleashes Geometry as a bonus skill, and may inflict Instant Death with weapon-elemental skills. It can also cast Lock On between turns, though this is a relatively insignificant ability.

The Super Snipe ZX is notable for having a higher effective Instant Death chance than the Spine Snapper, and with Cat Ninja being used to fuel the charge turn, it can be used with status gear to wipe out waves of foes with Hyper Beam. Do note that the Spine Snapper has better general utility due to the debuff boost and actual status boost, among other traits. It also has solid physically offensive potential, but other guns have the same Attack boost while the Heavy Claw and the Chainsaw Gun are significantly better for physical damage.

The Super Snipe ZX provides resistance to Wind, Tired, Weaken, Syphon and Disable. All of these except for Wind become immunities at Level 5.

The Alt Super Snipe ZX is a dedicated physically offensive weapon, with nothing but massive Attack and Accuracy stats. It outdoes all weapons but the Alt Chainsaw Gun (which comes with penalties) in this regard, though the Alt Flame Titan or the Alt Heartstopper may be preferred due to Lance's natural magical prowess. It also randomly gives the player Good Luck, has a small chance to inflict Instant Death with its Weapon-elemental skills, and may cast Cat Sniper between turns, but these are fairly insignificant features.

The Alt Super Snipe ZX resists Stun, Dispel, Syphon and Disable, which all become immunities at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Super Snipe is Lance's default weapon, being equipped when the game starts.

Trivia

  • In EBF5, the gun's ability to cast Geometry (whose attack animation closely resembles PlayStation buttons flying at the foe) as its bonus skill may be a reference to the "360 no scope" trick in first-person shooter games (when a player turns 360 degrees and shoots another player without really aiming, classically done with a sniper rifle without utilizing its scope).
    • This is complimented by the gun's description, "Scrubs get headshots," which refers to stereotypical elitist colloquialisms in shooters.
