Picture of Knex Heavy Cannon v2 - Mini
Intro 005.jpg
Well, due to popular demand I'm posting my second cannon, my v2/mini. If you don't already know, this is a mini version of this gun. As you may have already guessed, the biggest change to this version is that it is smaller and a lot more piece efficient. Everything else is the same, the shape, works, ammo (though a tadbit shorter) and looks.

The range for this gun is about 85 feet on average. Not bad. i would like to remind you though that the ranges on both my cannons are from the normal position, the range could be greatly increased by propping the front up higher.

If you cause any damage with this weapon, I will be in no way responsible. Just so you know. and Im serious, you could make some serious carnage with this!

If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to ask.

Enough chat, lets get building!

I have made a few different versions of this gun. Check them out!
Original
Nano
Micro
Handheld

D-:

Make sure that you've stretched out the elastics well before you try and shoot it.

You are using 64's right?
i need like a few more pieces for the trigger but other than that ITSS DONEE

this cannon could work very well in a knex war(although it will hurt like $^$%). this cannon is small, not gonna kill you in one shot(like the original), and it's got a good range

I got more green rods and I finished this cannon! It is AWESOME!!! You are the best ever I_am_Canadian! :D

AHHHHHH!!! IM OUT OF GREEN RODS!!!!!
could you use 2 small wheels instead of one medium wheel?
Hiyadudez4 years ago
Are these necessary?
I_am_Canadian (author)  Hiyadudez4 years ago
No, but if you're gonna build it I would make these too. If its pieces you are worried about, you could build something like on the v4 or v1.
it's a bit annoying having it on the ground like that- much easier when shoulder launched
-i'm still fixing a few bugs, but it's kinda similar to this


omg imagine firing it at sum targets with theupgraded ammo...






THEN SUDDENLY UR NEIGHBORS CAT RUNS INFRONT OF U!!!!! lolollololol
You think violently, don't you?
haha upgraded ammo you make me laugh man!
Now on THAT it would be important not to have any bands in front of the white rods...
that might be painful..
I_am_Canadian (author)  KEYBOARDISBROKEN6 years ago
Nice!!! Thats sweet! you made that?
except for the ammo at the end- yes (it actually fits too!)
