Was the Cannon really nerfed?

    your ork must have a very squishy load out then as my ork and CSM chars both tank plasmacannon shots TO THE FACE without going down.

    and these arent even my veteran load outs, i cant remember the last time i actually died to a plasma cannon.

    I usually run rusty gob and red armor and still get killed by direct hits. Otherwise I'm running specialist loadouts like deadshiny rokkit and two sticky nades. Even then I've been rocked on loota loadouts with gold armor by a plasma cannon direct hit.

    Orks with gold armor and rusty gob can survive direct plasmashots, if only with a sliver of health remaining, experienced that a lot.

    Then I musta taken a chip shot along the way that I didn't notice. I've def been braced and plasma hit to downed though.

    My Nurgle marine with red armour and a + 15 arnour wargear can survive a direct hit too, i think a plasma cannon should be able to atleast down every target on a direct hit seeing as its projectile is the slowest and has quite weak AOE compared to the kannon and tempest.

    getting suppressed makes the plasma cannon impossible to use also, meanwhile I can manage the cannon just fine.

    What's this "grenade tap" method?
  8. MannDeus Recruit

    I call it "grenade tap" when you just tap the fire button and the kannon just.. plops out the shell.. There's even grenade indicator when its nearby

    Huh. Also, if you tapfire while in mortar mode.. It mortars the grenade. The downside is, it has some arming time and bounces instead of exploding on impact. Also I believe the shot doesn't do as good damage to vechiles as charged shot..

    You just fire out a weaker bouncing frag grenade instead when you click once to fire instead of charging.

    You can hit the back wall of Devastators/Havoc/DR's without getting supressed or them able to fire back by mortaring grenades from the Napalm Deffgun in the doorway of- I think it's Harkus? The one with raised squares in front of the entry way? not the one with the bridge. You do have to push them off the balcony, and off the raised bits in front of you doing this though. (It's utterly devastating to their back line though.)
