An example of Luccia using a Shot to attack a Googhoul.
|Equipment Type||Projectile Weapon|
|Description||A tiny projectile thrown from a distance.|
|Hit %||Very low.|
Shots, and also Cards, are a weapon-type in Chrono Cross. Out of all 45 playable characters, only Luccia, Harle, Doc, and Sneff can equip them. Shots are miniature projectiles thrown by the character. In-game, shots are so tiny, they are barely discernible as bullets, pellets, or decks of cards. When thrown, the innate color of the character appears as shadows and trails around their arms. Several types of shots exist.
Because shots have incredibly low Hit Rates, it is advisable to cast EagleEye on the target using them. Luccia, for instance, possesses a large Element Grid. To balance this strength, she wields shots, which have a low success rate, lowering her chances of casting potent Elements since the only way to gain elemental levels in battle is by successfully hitting an opponent with a physical attack. Characters wielding shots have unlimited ammunition. All shots deal added damage to Floating enemies. Two types of projectiles (Stone Shot and Pack of Lies) deal extra damage to Matter and Human type enemies.
