Examine during setup: bang
After setup: fires metal balls

The dwarf cannon is a Ranged weapon which fires multi cannon balls. Unlike other Ranged weapons, it is not equipped by a player; rather, it is assembled on the ground. It can be bought from Dwarf Cannon engineer's store, which can be found on the south ridge of Ice Mountain for 750,000 coins. If the cannon is lost or stolen,[Clarify] it can be replaced for free by the Dwarf Cannon engineer. You must complete the Dwarf Cannon quest to have purchase the parts which make it up.

The cannon consists of four pieces: the base, the stand, the furnace, and the barrels.

Setting up the cannon

To setup and use the cannon, you must:

  1. Click "set down" on the dwarf cannon base.
  2. Use the dwarf cannon stand with the dwarf cannon base set down in the world, not in your inventory.
  3. Use the dwarf cannon barrels with the dwarf cannon base set down in the world, again, not in your inventory.
  4. Use the dwarf cannon furnace with the dwarf cannon base set down in the world.
  5. Press "fire" on the dwarf multicannon when you are ready to fire. The cannon will search for enemies in a flash, then fire at least once per enemy, automatically using ammo in the process. Enemies that are moving may be struck more than one time.

  • Multi cannon balls must be smithed from steel bars using a cannonball mould on a furnace.
