The Light Cannon on a Viper Hover body

The Light Cannon is the first available weapon to Technology Level 1 players in Multiplayer mode. It is also discovered as a artifact when you destroy a uphill Scavenger Base in Alpha 5.

Tips and some Tricks.[]

While pretty much weak at the start of the game, researching it will make it stronger. Example: 2 tanks with the Light Cannon that is fully researched are better than 4 tanks that are not or lowly researched. It has some body points, but remember it is a early-game weapon and you shouldn't probably try rushing it in Multiplayer because your enemy can make tanks that will counter them. Their AOE makes them powerful against cyborgs, But outmatched by it bigger brothers such as Medium and Heavy Cannon.

Overall Summary[]

It is a good weapon in the right hands, as it can blow everything up if somebody spams cyborgs. However, DO NOT count on it if it was a almighty weapon, it comes obsolete over time, when more advanced technology push in.


In earlier versions, this used to be the first weapon in Campaign.

The light cannon's tech upgrades used to be unbalanced and made it OP against non-researched versions.

Balance issues with this weapon lead to a nerf in tech upgrades and was made more powerful but obtained later in Alpha 5 and later in multiplayer, It's AOE was also made to be effective against cyborgs.
