The Rail Cannon is a Cannon introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Its charged shots are fast and small, exploding with a large blast radius. Continuous fire involves a tight line of smaller projectiles in rapid succession with little homing ability, requiring considerable accuracy. It is essentially a sniper-cannon, as it specializes in long-distant attacks. The range of this Cannon is formidable, even when compared to other Cannons; forward-dash charged shots can reach targets up to 73m away.

Idol Description
