  • The Heavy Flak Cannon is a specialized launcher with unique ammunition. It fires large clusters that explode in a very large area. It requires some distance to arm, and will not explode near the user.

    In Arena, it can be purchased for Engineer as a Series 4 weapon.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'FC.'

    • Rapid heat buildup
    • High recoil
    • Limited ammo supply
    • Projectiles detonate upon reaching a relatively limited max distance

    • Explosive.png Explosive Ammunition
      • 50mm Airburst Cluster

    Perks[]

    • Grants 7 armor while in player's possession

    Notes/Tips[]

    • Counts as both a Launcher and Special weapon for class bonuses
    • "Explosions" created by the projectiles cannot deal self-damage and do not grant HE-infusion ammo for the Demolisher.
      • However, when it lands a critical hit, it will create a spot for the seismic resonator to explode.
    • Do not put any penetration increasing attachments on the weapon since the projectiles explode on contact with enemy and it would render the weapon useless.
