Omni-Cannon is a legendary sniper rifle manufactured by Hyperion that appears in the Claptastic Voyage DLC. The Omni-Cannon is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from The Sponx located in Subconscious.

Special Weapon Effects

State of the art. Bang bang. – Deals bonus unlisted explosive damage. Very low initial scope sway for a Hyperion weapon. Slightly increased damage.

Usage & Description

The Omni-Cannon requires some level of patience, as the weapon has a very slow fire rate. As it deals bonus explosive damage, the Omni-Cannon is capable of doing splash damage. It can also score critical hits, making it usable as an ordinary sniper rifle, despite the explosive damage. It is particularly effective against Insecure bots due to them having helmets that can be knocked off with a well-placed headshot. The low scope sway helps the focus against stationary enemies, which can help in getting critical hits.

Athena's Fury of the Arena skill will improve the Omni-Cannon's slow fire rate, but this requires multiple enemies to be under the influence of Rend for it to work in its full potential. Storm Weaving is also another good skill to couple with the Omni-Cannon, as the weapon swapping time is quick. Stacking up Maelstroms will put Unrelenting into use, increasing weapon swapping and fire rate. Overall the weapon is powerful if coupled with right skills and precision.


  • Despite the Omni-Cannon dealing explosive damage, it is still considered to be a non-elemental weapon, allowing Nisha's Magnificent Six to include the bonus damage increase while preventing any penalties when used with Aurelia's Next to Cleanliness skill.
  • The Omni-Cannon always spawns with a Maliwan scope.


  • The Omni-Cannon has the same special effect as the Cobra from Borderlands 2.
  • The flavor text refers to RoboCop – in this case, Clarence Boddicker's description of the Cobra Assault Cannon in the scene of its introduction.
