From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Scorn Cannon is a Scorn explosive weapon utilized by high-ranking Scorn troops such as Chieftains and Fanatic's Chosen. A heavily modified version of this weapon is used by Elykris, the Machinist.
Comprised of tubing and tanks, this weapon utilizes molten, fiery Ether fumes as an explosive payload, resulting in a large blast radius and a devastating explosion. It is used as a mortar of sorts, where high-ranking Scorn troops use it to rain these blazing flechettes down upon enemy units.
