Re: Flak Cannon straight trash???

★★★★ Novice

I don't know if it is trash, but it definetly is not a FLAK Cannon. I took that thing thinking it would be great against pesky flyiers, like those dominion Storm Javelins or the firebirds. It is just a shot gun. PB it is nice shooting a dude in the face, or freezing an enemy and hitting the crit spot etc, but, I mean. We got better tools than that. It just does not come across as a very good multi target weapon or a FLAK weapon. It is only effective when you stick it up someones grill.

My colossus melee hits for 15 to 20k and after a voltiac dome cast combos the * out of everything. My colossus clears just as fast if not faster than my storm

Only used flak cannon to get the gearmaster achievement and dumped that thing.

Paired with burst mortar this is the useless weapon in he colossus arsenal IMO.

I use the Black Powder for skeet shooting and crowd control. Not really relying on it for damage dealing.


Clipping the wings off those pesky hovering elementals with the flak is a satisfying effect.

I make sure to waltz up and punch em in the face while flamboyantly scowling to display my dominance.

Is ther something comparable thats not point blank? Like I kinda like the moartar launcher or the one that fires multiple shells at once, any way to make them and say siege cannon viable? I like these weapons the best lol

I haven't used the flak cannon in quite a while.  I generally stay away from the gear that is not either a primer or detonator.  


Is it perhaps good at taking down enemy shielding??  I'd love to have a decent and reliable way of shooting elementalists out the sky.


Edit: Overlooked @Hillslam 's post.  How quickly does it take out enemy shielding (for perspective, lets consider the MW version at GM1)? One blast, two? More?
