The Shadow Blaster is a futuristic looking gun with a black and deep red finish. It has a pair of power cells located at the top, and a single black wire connecting the middle of the gun with what appears to be the gun's exhaust vents. The Shadow Blaster lacks a barrel, instead having only two short "lips" at the gun's muzzle.
In all games since Epic Battle Fantasy 3, the Shadow Blaster has been one of Lance's most powerful weapon magically. It usually gives him a great boost in Magic Attack as well as Death and Doom resistance. Its Attack bonus, however, is quite low. The Shadow Blaster also strengthens Lance's Dark-elemental attacks, and cause him to counter attacks with Dark Shot.
Epic Battle Fantasy 3
The Shadow Blaster is located behind the gates at the Volcano Peak, along with the Officer gears. It is actually a non-elemental weapon and does not boost the power of Dark skills, contrary to the description.
Epic Battle Fantasy 4
The Shadow Blaster returns as Lance's starting weapon when he rejoins the party. It is now also a Dark-elemental weapon.
