Cannon Computers are the main terminals for Cannon weapon systems. Cannons fire a single but powerful projectile and are the first weapon system that players have access to upon starting the game. Connecting this computer to another weapon computer will grant different slaving abilities.

Item Description

"The Cannon Computer is required for creating functioning Cannon systems. It is capable of controlling any amount of Cannon Barrels, although using multiple groups leads to escalating power costs. Once placed, you can select/deselect it with C, and link Cannon Barrels using V while it is selected and you are looking at a Cannon Barrel. This controller can be connected to other weapons and systems (cannon, beam, damage pulse, missile) to customize your weapon.

To link your Controller to its Modules, press C on the Controller, then X on the individual modules, or alternatively Shift + $CONNECT_MODULE to mass select grouped modules.

Afterwards you can link it to another weapon by connecting the weapon controller you want to upgrade with the weapon controller you just made. You can do this manually with $SELECT_MODULE and $CONNECT_MODULE or in the Weapons Menu.

Note that for the full effect, you need to connect 1:1 in size.

Press R to get in/out of the Computer."
