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
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?
