Birth by Sleep > Shotlocks

Shotlocks are powerful attacks that can give players a huge advantage over some of the more challenging enemies in the game. By holding down the L and R Buttons simultaneously, players can call up a lock-on system that targets multiple enemies all at the same time, or targets one enemy multiple times over. When the Shotlock reaches its maximum number of lock-ons, pressing the X Button will release a burst of powerful attacks that seek out and devastate any and all enemies previously targeted. It’s a fast and effective method of dealing with multiple enemies or with one very powerful one, dealing massive damage that could make most fights go much smoother.

Each Shotlock works a little bit differently, and only one Shotlock may be placed into a character’s Shotlock Deck at a time. New Shotlocks can be acquired throughout the game and swapped out with current Shotlocks, allowing players to experiment with each and determine which Shotlock will help them most in certain situations. Not all Shotlocks can be learned by every single character, and some overlapping Shotlocks are acquired through accomplishing different tasks depending on which story you are currently playing. A complete list of Shotlocks is provided below – including the max number of locks, max level, a brief description of how to use it, and how to obtain it – organized according to which characters are able to learn them.
