The Cabal Bronto Cannon is a weapon commonly used by Centurion soldiers of the Red Legion, replacing the Projection Rifle for most Centurions encountered since.

Overview[edit]

Unlike the Solar grenade-launching Projection Rifle, the Bronto Cannon is a direct-fire weapon that fires explosives of Void energy, more akin to a Rocket Launcher. Upon holding the trigger, a mechanism visible in the weapon's back pulls a metal rod, in a manner similar to a crossbow. At the same time, the barrels light up and dim down starting from the outer ones and ending at the central one. Once a shot is fully charged, it is discharged with a bright purple light, and it will travel very far, exploding on impact. More experienced wielders have mastered the timing of the weapon's charge, and can fire it very quickly in long volleys.

It is mainly found in the hands of Centurions, particularly often with the Blood Guard Centurions, though it is rarely wielded by high ranking Legionaries, Psions and in one occasion Phalanxes.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Bronto Cannon is so far the only Cabal weapon that deals Void damage.
  • The Legendary Rocket Launcher Pyroclastic Flow resembles a Bronto Cannon in its general design.
