Cannon is the title of a group of assault rifles in Borderlands 2. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs, and use the Torgue barrel. The Cannon is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

Fires explosive rounds in the shape of grenade-like spheres affected by gravity. Each shot fired consumes two rounds of ammunition. Upon striking a wall, floor, or obstacle, the Cannon's grenade will bounce once. Upon striking an enemy at any point in its trajectory, or upon striking an obstacle after the first bounce, the shot explodes.

Upon exploding, the shot delivers 100% of its gun damage value as splash damage in a small radius. The shot inflicts no additional impact damage upon a direct hit. Bonuses to grenade or splash damage will not increase the damage delivered, nor will bonuses to rocket launcher damage. Bonuses to gun damage such as Axton's Impact skill, however, will increase damage delivered.

Notes

  • The Cannon's grenades do not explode if they do not travel a sufficient distance from the user, preventing self-damage in most cases. Upon the event they hit an enemy within this range, the grenade will not explode.
  • Despite the Cannon's explosive element, it receives bonuses from Axton's Duty Calls skill.
  • Cannons have an incredibly high selling price compared to other assault rifles of the same level and rarity, being worth around five times as much. The Cannon shares this attribute with its cousin the Grenadier.
  • Like all assault rifles with the Torgue Torpedo barrel, detonating Cannon projectiles can be absorbed by an Absorption Shield, which will convert them into rocket launcher ammunition insead of assault rifle ammunition.
