Cannon

Premium members here on MassiveCraft can build and use cannons.

How to Build

  1. Build a barrel with 2-14 Iron blocks.
  2. Attach a stone button on both ends.
  3. Place a torch (the fuse) on the first block of the barrel.

How to Use

  1. Right-click the barrel with gunpowder/sulfur. Do this 1 to 10 times depending on how much power you want.
  2. Right-click the barrel with one of the cannonball types (see below).
  3. To increase the vertical firing angle, right click the upper or lower side of the barrel with empty hands. By right clicking on the side of the barrel the horizontal firing angle can be increased. Shift+right click will decrease the angle.
  4. Fire by right-clicking either the torch or the button. The cannon can also be fired with a redstone torch underneath the barrel.

A Suggestion: You should wear a helmet to protect yourself. Otherwise the noise of the gun blast will confuse you.
