— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Incendiary Cannon is a secondary weapon for the Pyro. It's a dark green Black Box with a flame on the sides. It was a July 2012 Weapon of the Month before being made permanent, until it was removed shortly after the Double Edge and the Flare Jumper.

Instead of firing flares, it fires rockets with the same damage, and said rockets will ignite all enemies hit. However, it cannot deal random crits and its rockets travel slower and have a lower explosion radius.

  • The lack of the flares' arc on the rockets make this weapon a better choice for players who have trouble aiming with flares, while keeping the ability to burn enemies from long distances.
  • The slow travel and reduced explosion radius makes aiming with this weapon at long range quite challenging, as the enemies will have lots of time to get away from the blast or to deflect the rocket.
