Cannon

From Sea of Thieves Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Cannon is a Weapon, Ship component, and Ship customization Item in Sea of Thieves, variants of which can be purchased at a Shipwright and equipped via a Ship Customization Chest.

Locations

  • Cannons can be found as the standard equipment on Ships and Cannon Rowboats.
  • Some Islands have cannon emplacements as coastal defences, which are often operated by Skeletons and increase the difficulty of approaching the island or act as a hindrance to those passing by.
  • Cannons are also a prominent feature on most Forts, where they're often found in cannon towers or mounted along the outer walls where they play a major role to deter enemy ships from raiding the inner boundaries. These cannons are also, almost always, operated by Skeletons while the fort is active.

Mechanics

Cannons are your ship's main offence against Skeleton Ships, other Player Pirates, Megalodons, and Skeletons. Cannons can be loaded with a single Cannonball, Cursed Cannonball, Chainshot, Blunderbomb, or Firebomb at a time. Outside combat, cannons can be used to launch players to their destinations; be wary that players can still suffer from fall damage if they fall high enough but they won't take damage from impact. Players can also launch Pets out of cannons.

As cannonballs are treated as ballistic projectiles, the laws of physics must be obeyed in order to be effective. Therefore, players will need to take into account the movement of both their own ship and their targets' ship, as well as the effects of gravity and the speed of their shot. Usually, this is done by leading (aiming ahead of the target). Cannons on islands and Cannon Towers are naturally easier to operate than on vessels.

Cannons aren't only used to punch holes in a ship's hull, they're also powerful enough to cripple specific parts of the ship to hamper a ship's performance. Hit the Mast to hinder your opponent's sailing speed, strike the Wheel to make it harder to steer or damage the Capstan to limit the number of Players able to raise it. Planks must be used to repair damaged components while the sails need to be hoisted to the upright position before repairs can start. Each of these ship components can take up to three points of damage from regular Cannonballs. Chainshot are specialised cannonballs that have a lower firing arc and distance, but are capable of dealing maximum damage to the wheel, capstan or Masts. Chainshot does half the damage of a single cannonball to the Hull or Players.

Players can use Cursed Cannonballs with cannons to apply different cursed effects to Ships, Players or Skeletons. Green Cursed Cannonballs are focused on effects that hinder players or Skeletons, Purple Cursed Cannonballs are focused on effects hindering the sailing of a Ship.

Throwable grenades can also be launched through cannons to increase their firing distance. Firebombs can be used with cannons to spread Fire at a larger distance. Blunderbombs can accumulate enough force when used with a cannon to blast a Ship off course without dealing any holes.

Tips

  • When fighting Galleons, plan and aim your cannonballs just below the waterline on the opposing ship first. Attacking the first deck is far less effective than hitting the second. This can be made easier with Ballastballs.
  • Try to spread your cannon shots out. Hitting the same spot over and over only widens an existing hole (although it will prevent the other crew from patching that one hole temporarily), but it does not speed up the buildup of water that much, it is better to leave the ship with more holes to fix.
  • The Sloop and Brigantine are extremely vulnerable to attacks from the rear. You can be shot by cannon fire while on the wheel, the anchor, the sails, or even while repairing holes in the bottom deck. Players on top deck can get knocked off their ship from cannon fire. Players attacking Sloops can use this knowledge to their advantage and players piloting Sloops should use this knowledge to guard their ship's weaknesses.
  • Gold Skeletons have a special weakness vs Cannons. Luring them into water before firing a cannonball will make quick work of them.
  • Shooting a Mast via cannon will cause damage, causing the mast to break and fall over in 3 Cannonball hits or 1 Chainshot hit against a Brigantine or a Galleon. As of Season 7, Sloops only receive 2 hits of damage from chainshots.
