Function

The Flak Cannon fires a burst of eight flak rounds at once. It is an improved Shotgun, trading damage output for more rounds in a clip and increased rate of fire; therefore, it can still compete and severely damage advanced infantry. Same as the Shotgun, its main drawbacks are the low range and the low rate of fire, requiring the wielder to go in close proximity to maximize the Flak Cannon's potential. It does basically no damage to vehicles or buildings. Even on the Master Control Terminal, its damage is rather low, compared to the potential damage inflicted by its alternate fire on it.

The Flak Cannon has an alternate fire where it lobs explosive slugs akin to a Grenade Launcher. It is best used against infantry rather than vehicles or buildings. A direct hit on infantry will deal reasonable damage. Alternate fire is usually used while approaching the opponent before switching to regular fire.
