Mortar (モーターガン, Mōtā Gan?, lit. Mortal Gun) is a Blue Bullet ability exclusive to Final Fantasy X-2. The ability can only be learned from Gippal during any of his boss fights. In the International and HD Remaster versions of the game, the ability can also be used by Gippal when he joins the party through the Creature Creator system.
When used, it deals physical damage to all enemies that ignores the enemy's base Defense stat, but damage is still halved by Protect. It costs 99 MP to cast.
Despite sharing similar English names, it is the not related to the enemy ability of the same name used by used by Barbatos and Vorban in Final Fantasy X, which is known as Storm Flame (シュトルムフレイム, Shurtorumu Fureimu?) in Japanese. This ability was renamed in both English and Japanese to Storm Cannon in Final Fantasy X-2.
