actually being on the receiving end of the kannon I've learned why it's harder to dodge than I originally thought. I am always hit by the thing before I even hear them shoot it and as a corpse I get to watch the projectile casually fly at walking pace to the location of my corpse before exploding. It's not a weapon that can be dodged. That explains why everybody I kill by the thing are under some notion that they can play chicken. They're not expecting a horribly desynced murder laser.
