The Loose Cannon is a community-made primary weapon for the Demoman. It resembles a pirate-style cannon with a stock and a sight near the front of the barrel. This weapon, although unlisted has a 50% faster projectile than the standard Grenade Launcher. However, it has a 50% damage penalty after touching a surface, and deals 11-32 damage. The canonballs shot explode automatically after 1 second, and do 22-64 damage. A direct hit will not explode automatically, but will stil inflict 57-77 damage of contace and inflict extremely potent knockback, stronger than a Compression blast. The direct hit is good for a utility move near a natural hazard or for escaping. This weapon can explode the cannonball earlier than the 1 second fuse by holding down the fire key and releasing it, dealing the splash damage, (22-64). This weapon has a clip of 4 and carries a total of 20 ammo including the clip. The first reload takes 1.24 seconds and the reloads after that take 0.6 seconds, unless the player fires a shot and the weapon will have to do the 1.24 second reload again. If the player holds down the fire key until the meter fills, it will cause the projectile to explode instantly, inflicting damage to yourself and enemies near the player.
