The Scorch Cannon is a Fallen relic weapon found throughout the Destiny series. The Scorch Cannon acts as a Solar-damage rocket launcher with ten rounds. Holding down the trigger converts the rockets into sticky bombs, which become more powerful with time. An unprimed explosion will kill most weaker enemies. A fully primed bomb will kill a shielded Major, but not an Ultra. The bombs will stick to both surfaces and enemies. In Rise of Iron, the Scorch Cannon made a return with new variants, the Shock Cannon and Null Cannon.

Grimoire Description[edit]

Scorch Cannons are shoulder-mounted heavy impact weapons used by the Fallen for hull-puncturing in ship-to-ship raiding parties.

The Scorch Cannon uses a compressed Solar "furnace" to focus and direct superheated rods of solar energy. Each burst is mapped to the Cannon's firing matrix, allowing the wielder to hold a fired rod's charge. Release of the firing actuator triggers detonation. The longer the actuator is held the greater the rod's explosive impact.[1]
