The Hand Cannon is an extremely powerful weapon. Like the Pipe Shotgun the Hand Cannon takes Handmade Shell. It is also similar to the Pipe Shotgun in that it will only hold one shell at a time. The weapon does not take a lot of resources compared to a lot of other weapons. It only requires twenty wood and ten metal fragments to construct and you do not have to have a Workbench to make it. The Hand Cannon is an extremely effective weapon as it does 180 damage, but the range is extremely limited as it will only be effective from twenty meters. Like the Pipe Shotgun the Hand Cannon has an extremely high amount of recoil. One unique thing about the Hand Cannon is that there is no trigger on the gun. The gun is fired by dragging a rock along the barrel’s top. The dragging motion makes sparks which are supposed to pass into a hole in the barrel and light the powder and make it fire. Because this triggering method is so unique it is prone to failure, the gun is known to fail on occasion but if you make three attempts in a row and you don’t restart your attempts the gun will fire by the third attempt. The Hand Cannon is an extremely effective weapon, but it does fail on occasion.
