|Previous Edition Warning: This article discusses a topic from a previous edition of Warhammer 40,000.|
Its canonicity is in question but was once considered canon.
The Splatta Cannon is an Ork weapon. It is a cannon which fires a splatta shell, named so because of the irregular way it travels across the battlefield. The shell consists of several linked rockets attached to a chain with a large metal ball at the end. The initial rocket is launched and the rest are fired on timers, giving it a particularly unpredictable trajectory.
The ball and chain whip across the battlefield, slashing through anything it hits before crashing to the ground. A few moments later the next rocket fires and launches the chain and ball in another direction. It also has the effect to scatter ground troops due to its irregular movements.
If an error occurs, more often than not the machine will either explode or suffer minor damage.
The Splatta Cannon appears only in Second Edition.
