The Firestorm Cannon is a craftable Pre-Hardmode ranged weapon that is a weaponized version of the Flare Gun. Like the Flare Gun, it uses Flares as ammunition.

The Firestorm Cannon has two firing modes, both of which fire automatically:

  • Left click will fire a constant but inaccurate stream of piercing flares; sometimes firing two flares at once. These flares disappear very quickly after sticking to a tile.
  • Right click fires an inaccurate spread of four flares. These flares do not pierce but last a bit longer when sticking to tiles.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

The left-click attack.
The right-click attack.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The primary fire has a fixed use time of 8 ticks, and the secondary fire has a fixed use time of 26 ticks; as a result, no modifier can increase or decrease the firing rate of the weapon.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Having this weapon in your inventory does not allow you to buy Flares from the Merchant. You will need the Flare Gun itself for the Merchant to sell either type of flare.
