A cannon, plural cannons (but sometimes also simply pluralized cannon[1]), is a type of artillery, usually large and tubular, that uses gunpowder or other explosive-based propellants to launch a projectile over a distance.[2]

Cannons dates at least as far back as the Second War,[3] where they were mounted on cannon towers and various warships. Cannons are operated by cannoneers.

A massive cannon named Gallywix's Pride can be found at Bilgewater Harbor.[4]
