Hand cannon detail

The Hand cannon is a two-handed Ranged weapon that requires a Ranged level of 75, a Firemaking level of 61, and the completion of the Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf quest to wield. The hand cannon and its proprietary ammo, hand cannon shot, are dropped by Cannoneers.

It counts as a two-handed crossbow in between Karil's crossbow and the Royal crossbow in terms of strength. It can prove to be an inexpensive alternative to the above two crossbows when killing monsters weak to bolts, such as waterfiends and warped tortoises.

The special attack, Aimed Shot, uses 50% Adrenaline, firing a shot that has 30-200% weapon damage, with 75% additional accuracy, taking longer to fire. However, it has a greater chance of exploding when using this attack.

It is advised not to use this weapon with Momentum or auto attacks in general as the cannon has a chance of exploding whilst doing so. A higher firemaking level will reduce this chance. If a cannon explodes it will be removed from your equipped items and is lost.

Note: Since the Evolution of Combat, hand cannons no longer have a chance of exploding when using abilities. They can only blow up on auto-attacks.

TriviaEdit

  • When cutting wood and using certain emotes, your hand cannon will not disappear if you're wielding it.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, the hand cannon had a chance to explode with every shot, with a higher Firemaking level making it less likely to explode.
  • It is one of only two weapons requiring a certain Firemaking level to wield, along with the Inferno Adze.
  • When fired, the Hand cannon appears to be partly inside the player's head. It is likely this is an oversight by Jagex.
