Description This mighty cannon deals impressive damage, but takes a while to reload.

Blast Cannon is a point damage weapon with high damage, but low projectile speed. It is a cannon, so it gains bonus damage against burning targets through perks and talents. Compared to similar 1 slot point cannons like Sniper Cannon and Cannon, it has the highest base damage of all 1 slot point cannons, however it has low critical hit chance and receives no increase to critical hit chance through talents.

Before the 4.0 update, Blast Cannon received a majority of its talents from Bhurt.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

It is advisable to either have all damage against burning perks or all critical hit chance perks. Perking with all epic critical hit chance on an epic Blast Cannon gives 19% chance to land a critical hit, even though the damage over entire games isn't as high as perking with epic damage against burning targets, it works well with providing spike damage for hit and run tactics, and frees up a red slot that doesn't have to be dedicated to Flare Gun. Perking with all epic damage against burning targets gives an additional +48% damage increase to burning targets, this combines with Bhurt's talents (combined give +40%) to potentially give +88% damage against burning targets. This overall provides a flat increase in damage output from the Blast Cannon, though the talents against burning targets are very late in the tree and lower MK ships won't have the slots to fully facilitate this tactic.

It is recommended not to use the Blast Cannon on a ship with only one red slot. It is outclassed in both DPS and range by the Cannon. A ship with multiple red slots can use other weapons while the Blast Cannon reloads to fully utilize its high damage-per-shot.

The small range of Blast Cannon means it is a close range weapon, but it also has a noticeable cooldown. These two factors limit it to be mainly used by Speeders or Enforcers in a hit and run tactic, but it can also be seen on close brawling Shooters and Defenders.

One good strategy with the Blast Cannon, especially the uncommon rarity, is to have it on tier II or higher. Then equip perks on damage and/or burning targets. The burn damage perks, however, should only be used if you have a Flare Gun, Napalm Launcher, or Fire Bomb.
