—Description from Ultimate's Move List

Lunar Launch (ボトムシュート, Bottom Shoot) is one of three up special moves for the Mii Gunner.

Overview[edit]

When used, the Gunner aims downwards and releases an explosion, launching into the air. The explosion does 7% damage and can hit edgeguarders below them while recovering high, where it would normally be dangerous.

In Ultimate, the move boasts a superior vertical recovery and its projectile deals far more knockback. However, its landing lag has been increased by an extra frame, making it even more punishable.

Customization[edit]

Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:

1. Lunar Launch 2. Cannon Uppercut 3. Arm Rocket

"Shoot downward, and the recoil will rocket you into the air." "An uppercut powered by a downward blast that can dunk airborne foes." "Take to the sky using jet propulsion. The direction of flight can be adjusted left or right."
