Description This heavy duty cannon fires cannonballs that explode on impact, damaging nearby ships.

Explosive Cannon is an area damage weapon that produces a damage radius when impacting ships and terrain. It is a cannon, so it gains bonus damage against burning targets through perks and talents. Explosive Cannon is the only 2 slot point cannon in the game, and easily outclasses its 1 slot point counterparts in terms of damage, especially given its potential to hit multiple ships. Explosive Cannon however, has a 3.3 second longer cooldown than the Sniper Cannon and Blast Cannon, as well as a significantly slower projectile speed.

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