Introduction: The H.V.I Cannon S-GR 2280

Check my Wall-E Garbage Bot too!

My sweet new cannon!
It has outstanding power, looks and has a crazy range!
About 80 ft!
I do think this is one of my biggest guns ever even, bigger than the A.D.U!
This was supossed to become the V2 for the A.D.U but it now has wheels so i can't really call it a V2.
Anyway, great gun and a must for everyone (with a lot of pieces) with nothing to build!
Now for some pros and no's:

Pros:
-Awesome range
-Looks great
-Very powerful
-Drives smooth
-Scares anyone instantly

No's:
-Very high part use (view parts list)

Let's move on then!

Step 2: The Wheels

Pretty basic chassis but still pretty good.
Build it 1 time.

Step 3: Barrel

Pretty long since it needs to build up some force to get the bullet out of the barrel.
Build it 1 time.

Step 4: Trigger

On of the most interesting parts on the gun since,
it's upside-downed.

Step 5: Top

Just for strength and keeping the barrel open.

Step 6: Bow-ish Thing

This is just for making the pull-back of the bands better and quicker.

Step 7: Sides

Just for strength and a straight barrel.

Step 8: Bottom Barrel

Also, for strength and straighting the barrel.

Step 9: Top 'n Bottom Connector

This part holds the back part of the top and the back part of the barrel together.

Step 10: Top

The Top!
For added strength and straighting the barrel.

Step 11: Back Wheels

For a smoother ride.

Step 12: Scope-ish Thing

This part is unnecesary but, it makes it look more smooth.

Step 13: Camera Add-On

This one can only be used for the Traveler DV 5070 Camera and others of the same width.

Step 14: Bullet

Same bullet used in th A.D.U but still the same undefeatable damage!

Step 15: Get These!

Need 20 of 'em.
Collect them and move on to the assembly line (finally).

Step 16: Get These (Too)

Need 55 of 'em.
Go collect them and now, we can move on!

Step 17: Assembly

Having Trouble?
Post your problem in a comment, and i'll help as soon as possible.

Step 18: Band Emplacement

Heres how to put 'em on.

Do Pic 2 and 3, 6 times.

Step 19: You're Done!!!

Well you've built the H.V.I Cannon S-GR 2280!
Have freaking much fun with my knex gun!

Are the green rods under the yellow connectors essential???

author
Skreetsha (author)Knexman152011-09-19

Yes, that's how you mount the bottom half and the top half together.

If this Knex Cannon works, Then what would the range and accuracy be on it?

author
knex luver123 (author)2010-02-08

in every knex cannon/ bazooka i have made, i can always find ways to make the stronger

author
Fred the Penguin (author)2009-08-02

problem with your first picture the rubber bands are right in front of the barrel

author

They are supposed to be like that.

author

wouldnt they get in the way?

author

Apparently no, because almost all knex annons have them near the front of the barrel, as i show in Viccie.B1993's other cannon:

author

no they dont thoose are the bands for the pull back(as far as i know)

author
agent harmsy (author)Hiyadudez2009-09-07

Except when I built it, they DID get in the way! T'was quite annoying, so the gun only stayed built for about 2 days...

author

blah.

author
mettaurlover (author)2009-10-05

author
Hephestus (author)2009-09-19

author
Skreetsha (author)Hephestus2009-09-19

Alot of people before you already pointed that out, but it wasn't supposed too, it just came out looking like that.

author
glugnar (author)2009-09-01

author
Hiyadudez (author)2009-08-19

Are they rubberbands or string?

author

can i use yellow connecters for the barrel because I built every thing else but the barrel and I thought I would have enough

author
An Villain (author)2009-06-23

not enough grey connectors for ammo! can i use anything else?

author
Skreetsha (author)An Villain2009-06-23

Sure, you can use those 2-side greys, or even red connectors, i guess.

author
An Villain (author)Skreetsha2009-06-24

thank you, by the way this is the most piece efficient cannon other then logic boy's but this is cool, and i will build.

author
Skreetsha (author)An Villain2009-06-24

Uhm.. not trying to annoy you but, i think the ADU is more piece-efficient. But thats a bazooka ;)

author
An Villain (author)Skreetsha2009-06-24

the ADU is actually a shoulder fired bastille because it fires an arrow-type projectile.

author
bighead5454 (author)2009-06-24

will different size wheels work other then just some small ones will large ones work too?

author
Skreetsha (author)bighead54542009-06-24

The wheels are not required, i just putted them on for some extra beefy look :P But i guess you can use normal sized wheels too :)

author
killerAP (author)2009-04-01

ok how big of a dent does this put into your walls? also you should put some flattened cardboard boxes and see how far it goes through them. I cant build this cuz i only got, oh, say, 1% of the total pieces you have. any idea where I can get tons more!

author
bighead5454 (author)killerAP2009-06-24

you can get great deals from ebay or amazon i recommend amazon cause it has a quicker checkout

author
interman (author)killerAP2009-04-04

To: killerAP From: interman I know where you can get more. At local Wal-Marts, Targets, or any other store in the toy section.

author
sprout_less (author)interman2009-04-07

no way i got 3,000 pieces off ebay for 37 dollars

author

Nice, i got 2,500 pcs. off ebay for ~$25.00

author

yah its so cheap i will probably get more soon the one thing that sucks about knex of ebay is shipping

author
Skreetsha (author)killerAP2009-04-02

Well, i never fired it at my wall, for well... quite obvious reasons but, it left my knex box pierced so it is really powerful! And if you're in Holland, i don't know where to get K'nex except for Toys'r'Us but it's pretty exspensive and not that much K'nex per box. If you're in England, America wherever els, i can only think of Ebay.

author
killerAP (author)killerAP2009-04-01

where i can tons more at a cheap price?
fixed it
