The Vortex Cannon is a Wind-elemental gun available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Vortex Cannon is a rugged rocket launcher made entirely out of stainless steel. Based on the description in EBF5, it apparently was made out of an industrial-grade wind generator. It has an iron sight heavily stylized to resemble a gust of wind, a fin located at the back and a front grip near the mouth. While its appearance is almost identical in EBF4 and 5, in 5 it has a pair of purple grips instead of gray ones.

Its stats are largely the same in both games: a huge Magic Attack boost (the highest of all guns in EBF4) and slight bonuses to both defences at the cost of 10% Accuracy and Evade. It resists Wind and Stagger in both games, as well as Confuse, Heavy and Light in EBF5. It also can inflict Dispel with weapon-elemental attacks, but that is generally only useful with the area-of-effect Hyper Beam, as Lance already has a single-target Dispelling skill in his default moveset, Crush, which has a higher chance to cause the status. Do note that since Vortex Cannon is a strong Magic Attack based gun, using Unload to inflict Dispel may actually be fine due to the unimportance of an Attack debuff. It also may cast the Vortex Cannon's bonus skill, adding additional damage.

The Vortex Cannon does boost Wind skills, but Lance doesn't have any in his default moveset in either of the games it appears in. That said, he does have access to solid Wind attacks like Airwave and Shockwave though shared skills. The Vortex Cannon also can cast a magical Wind-elemental spell (which hits all foes in EBF4 and works anytime, but in EBF5 it only hits one foe in and works only after reaching level 3) with single-target weapon-elemental attacks, primarily to deal extra damage; while it is affected by the Wind skills boost, its base power is below average. When maxed in EBF5, it also can counterattack with a magical Wind spell of medium power that has a chance to inflict 2x Stagger, preparing the enemy for an easy critical hit.
