The Cannon is an Item added by Balkon's WeaponMod. A placeable weapon that shoots an explosive projectile

It is placed like a block and used in the fashion of a mounted 1st person shooter weapon, with the exception that the player has to dismount to reload

Right-click with a Cannon Ball in hand and Gunpowder in the inventory to load it; Right-click again to mount; aim and press the Space Bar to fire; Sneak to dismount; rinse and repeat

The propelled Ball will travel in a soft arc so this means a lack of accuracy, so it's best to aim somewhere above the targets, the further the target the higher off the aim. With some practice a Player will hit most of the time

With a maximum range of about 30 blocks and a blast radius of 5 to 6 blocks the Cannon makes for a mighty defence weapon against invading Mobs. It will also blast big holes in the ground

The Cannon will completely dismantle upon removal, so has to be crafted again. It will move around if pushed by Mobs or Players

Tip: to keep out of harms way while operating the Cannon, build a moat around the area or a platform 2 blocks high (5x5 is recommended to keep from falling off when dismounting). Keep in mind that the Cannon can only aim about 30° below the horizon
