The Blast Cannon is a Tier 2 cannon obtained by infusing.


Blast Cannon's shots will immediately explode upon hitting a mob, but will not immediately explode upon hitting a block. Instead, the projectile will stick to the block and explode after 4 seconds have passed.


The Blast Cannon takes 1.56 seconds to fully 'unholster', the player must wait for the 'unholster time' to finish before being able to fire the cannon.

When used, it can fire at a rate of 0.74 shots per second, giving it an effective minimum of 12.58 (♥×6.29) DPS. Blast Cannon's projectiles will also deal increased damage depending on the target's armor value.
