The Dragon's Breath Cannon is a heavy weapon introduced in the Chinese New Year Update 2015. It inflicts excellent Damage, has infinite Range, great Accuracy but poor Agility. It was also the final prize of trial 1 of Chinese New Year 2 (Event).
The Dragon's Breath Cannon is like a combination of the Howitzer's projectile speed + Agility and the Thumper's strength and blast radius, but with only 2 rounds. Due to this, this weapon is extremely good at long range and taking out targets without any explosive-resistant armor. Be cautious about its magazine size since it can deplete very quickly, so it is best when staying out of the enemies' reach (and also to avoid getting auto-killed) or camp on the high grounds. Camping with this gun is also great as it has a long Range. This is an excellent weapon, so it is worth using it for any medium or long ranged fights.This weapon is usually a one shot kill but if people are wearing more than 20% health then you will need both shots to kill them.
To get the best out of this weapon, follow the instructions on this guide.
