The equipped monster gains 400 ATK. If the equipped monster attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent. When this card leaves the field, banish the equipped monster.
If you equip your Big Bang Shot to your opponent's Dark Magician, and Dark Magician attacks your Jerry Beans Man, the opponent of the owner of the "Big Bang Shot" takes the damage (so your opponent, who attacked with Dark Magician, takes 2900 points of damage).
After playing around with this card a bit, I find it more satisfying to use as a way to kill my opponent's monsters after I equip it on them and then proceed to destroy it with De-Spell or something. Maybe I should try to make a deck to use it for that purpose? I don't know how good it would be competitively, but it would be fun to try out.
This card is pretty sweet when used properly. Especially synergizes well with wind decks that return cards to the hand (Quill Pen, Tornado Bird, Swift Birdman Joe). That said, the mentioning of Lady Ninja Jae is off since LNJ clears your opponent's backrow, not your own (!). Woops.
that is not how it's supposed to work tho,
I've recently faced two opponents using big bang shot on my dark magician. I thought he would storm so I didn't bother popping it with my vigilance. However, in one battle, I did the piercing damage to the opponent. In the other one, it worked around the other way so I lost the game unexpectedly like you did. This GOTTA be a glitch
It's actually stated in the card description to deal piercing damage to the card owner's opponent. This means that regardless of which sideof the field the equipped monster is on, the piercing damage will always be dealt to the opponent of the card owner's, if the monster attacks a defence positiom monster. It is not a bug, it's just one of those unclear mechanics hidden in the text.
As long as it is not in a chain, can you use spell destruction (De-spell, Stamping Destruction) to kill your opponent's monster after you have equipped it with Big Bang Shot?
Hi. What about comparing this card with shield spear? Shield spear is more versatile, helping in def and attack. The pierce effect is overkill in imo (if you are attacking, u are on upper hand usually), the equip banish effect is very situational and need another card to work.
Also to note: if you plan on chaining a spell removal card to the activation of this card, it will not do anything as the card has not yet fully resolved
You can also try other cheeky plas with this card too; use it with Tailor of the Fickle to change the target to your opponent if they were to destroy your equip but that would be it's only real use as equips are starting to die out. Just a fun combo if you plan on building a deck with at least 2 of these
