This sort of item contributes to the ships cannon attack, cannon fight radius, cannon fire angle and cannon loading time. These stats cannot be upgraded using refining stones. Cannons cannot be refined at all.Cannons are equipped in the cannon slot. Every ship has two cannon slots, left one often called port and right one often called starboard.
Cannons don't have durability, so it never decreases, no matter how many times they're used. Cannons can be destroyed, if the ship hull falls below 20%, and it still keeps being attacked. Even if the damage to hull is being shown as 0, there is still a chance for cannons to get destroyed.
Cannons have weight attribute. While stored in ships inventory, they will take up portion of the ships load. After equipping, they will become weightless, they will not take any of the ships load.
Ship armors were originally divided into four types:
- Buckshot cannon - medium attack, medium range, high fire angle, medium loading time
- Howitzer cannon - medium attack, high range, low fire angle, slow loading time
- Dartling cannon - low attack, medium range, medium fire angle, fast loading time
- Cannon - balanced, medium attack, medium range, medium fire angle, medium loading time
Later this type of division was abandoned and replaced with mixed type cannons.
