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)

You likey?
Let's get to building then!

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

Step 5: Top

Just for strength and keeping the barrel open.

Are the green rods under the yellow connectors essential???
Skreetsha (author)  Knexman152 years ago
Yes, that's how you mount the bottom half and the top half together.

Why dont use IAC,s original missle?

Skreetsha (author)  knexpeople4 years ago
Because i don't copy people.
chazman24 years ago
if it wurcks whats the range of it
Skreetsha (author)  chazman24 years ago
Speak normal English, and i will reply.
If this Knex Cannon works, Then what would the range and accuracy be on it?
in every knex cannon/ bazooka i have made, i can always find ways to make the stronger
problem with your first picture the rubber bands are right in front of the barrel
They are supposed to be like that.
wouldnt they get in the way?
Apparently no, because almost all knex annons have them near the front of the barrel, as i show in Viccie.B1993's other cannon:
FDSWCT7FLG5XJHV_MEDIUM.jpg
no they dont thoose are the bands for the pull back(as far as i know)
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...
blah.
i have GOT to build this out of micros.

your ible' reminds me of "I_am_Canadian" cannon
Skreetsha (author)  Hephestus4 years ago
Alot of people before you already pointed that out, but it wasn't supposed too, it just came out looking like that.
*GASP* If I buy more yellow connectors, a blue bendie & about a hundred more rubber bands [:)], I'll be able to make this. I probably won't make it soon though, because I'm waiting for pieces to arrive to finish the knex house, then I'm going to build Heavy Cannon V5, then I'll build this. The only reason I put you last is I've already got the pieces for the others (or at least waiting for a couple) and I found them before this. Why am I telling you all this? I don't know. I just feel like talking (Or, to suit the situation more, typing). Anyway, I'll stop wasting your time by writing stupid things. Goodbye.
Them two bracket things make the text red? Yay! Now I know a color changer thing! I'm odd, I know...
not very high self esteem

Help if you can. Man this is hard.

An Villain5 years ago
not enough grey connectors for ammo! can i use anything else?
Skreetsha (author)  An Villain5 years ago
Sure, you can use those 2-side greys, or even red connectors, i guess.
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.
