These are the only monsters in the game that drop the powerful Hand Cannon and its ammo, Hand cannon shots (dropped in quantities of 100). They can also drop the Dragon pickaxe, which can only be earned otherwise by killing a Chaos dwogre, by killing a Chaos dwarf (only the level 40 Chaos Dwarves in Chaos Dwarf Battlefield drop it), or by buying from other players.
Cannoneers attack mainly with slow, but powerful ranged attacks that hit a maximum of 500 damage, though they seldom hit over 300. They also have a melee attack, which they will only use if Protect from Missiles is activated. If a familiar fights and the dwarf turns on it, the dwarf will always attack with range, so a familiar with high defence and life points (such as a steel titan) is recommended for it to survive longer. These monsters can be killed after the quest Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf in the Chaos Dwarf Battlefield, which is reached through the tunnel by the gold ore vein in the South West corner of Keldagrim mines. These creatures can be a really good source of money due to the ease of killing them even with low level weapons.
Either a shield or the Protect from Ranged prayer are strongly recommended when engaging these enemies due to their damage output and the way their aggression works. Bring Prayer potions, good food, a strong stab weapon, and a super set as well if you plan to stay for an extended time. Guthan's set is notably effective in killing these monsters due to the healing ability, which, combined with use of Prayer renewal potions, super sets, and Soul Split can result in very long and profitable trips.
