A makeshift weapon filled with gunpowder and shrapnel. Immensely powerful, but it can only be fired once.

Makeshift Cannon is a gun that fires a blast of various colored balls that deal extremely high damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png The Return - If the player also has Pig, it turns green to resemble Cannon, and shoots bat projectiles at nearby enemies.
  • This weapon bypasses the DPS cap on bosses.
  • This gun and the Yari Launcher are the only guns in the game that bypass the DPS cap. It is recommended to only use them during boss fights.
  • When the shots get destroyed they make an explosion similar to that of a BSG.
  • Holey Grail can refill Makeshift Cannon's ammo upon taking damage.
  • Duct Taping this to other weapons can immensely increase its ammo count.
  • Relodestone can refill the Makeshift Cannon right after firing it, making it possible to fire multiple Makeshift Cannon shots in rapid succession.
  • Chance Bullets will not shoot Makeshift Cannon's bullets with other guns.
  • Ring of Triggers's effect can shoot Makeshift Cannon's bullets in all directions,dealing high damage without consuming its ammo.
    • Active items could be recharged immediately due to the high damage.
  • An Ammo Spread will only restore its shot if picked up while being held, since the 50% replenishment rounds up to 1 and the 20% replenishment rounds down, to 0.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon's appearance and function is a reference to the Star Trek episode Arena, in which Kirk makes such a weapon out of bamboo, hand-mixed black powder, diamonds, and vines.
  • The weapon's description ("You Only Get One Shot") is likely a reference to Eminem's Lose Yourself.
