The factory issue 40mm Cannon is a semi-automatic weapon that fires a high-explosive round with good accuracy.
— In-game description.

The 40mm Cannon, also simply known as the 40mm, is a Titan 40mm cannon that appears in Titanfall.

OverviewEdit

The 40mm Cannon is a high-powered cannon found on Titans. As the name suggests, the 40mm Cannon fires high-explosive 40mm shells.

This weapon is equally at home attacking both enemy titans and pilots.  The quick travel time and great accuracy of its rounds makes this an effective weapon at range but when up close, the low rate of fire may hurt players who are not skilled with the weapon.

  • 40mm Cannon is capable of scoring critical hits by hitting weak spots on unshielded titans.
  • 40mm without Burst Fire mod will kill pilot in one direct hit or two near explosions. With Burst Fire mod it'll take two direct hits or three near hits.
  • 40mm can score head shots, but there are no challenges associated with it, unlike with XO-16 Chaingun.
  • It is the only weapon that can down a Titan with one magazine.

StrategyEdit

The 40mm Cannon has very few weaknesses and can be used effectively with any Titan chassis or loadout. Against enemy pilots on the ground, any miss shot is likely to cause splash damage, while a follow up shot is likely to kill. Perhaps the only weakness this weapon has is its need for direct hits against enemy Titans, so Stryders with Dash Core active can be extremely difficult to deal with.

StrengthsEdit

  • Powerful rounds that can take out Pilots and Titans
  • Large magazine capacity

WeaknessesEdit

  • Hard to hit fast-moving Pilots
  • Limited effective range
  • Slow rate of fire makes the 40MM Cannon ineffective in Close Quarters Combat.

Field NotesEdit

  • This weapon packs a punch with every bullet. It has the perfect balance of being able to deal a fair amount of damage to Titans along with taking out any minions or Pilots with one round.
  • This gun is very difficult to use against Pilots that are on roofs or jumping around. Be sure to take advantage of the splash damage and try to shoot enemy Pilots when they are on the ground or next to a wall. If a Pilot is high up on a roof or jumping above your head, it is better to dash away and try the fight from another angle.
  • This weapon, without any mods, can take out a couple of minions that are close together. But coupled with the Burst Fire, the 40mm Cannon can easily dispose of an entire group of minions with one or two bursts.
  • This is one of the strongest weapons against enemy Titans in mid-close-range battles. It has a large magazine capacity and fast rate of fire, which allows you to deal continuous damage, and you aren’t punished if you miss a few shots.
  • The Burst Fire mod is great when playing on a map with lots of cover, so that you can shoot a couple bursts and dash away to safety. If you like the single-round semi-automatic fire, be sure to equip the Extended Magazine to get five extra rounds per mag. When head-to-head against another Titan, if this weapon doesn’t kill the enemy, it will undoubtedly leave it weak enough to be finished off by your teammates.

TriviaEdit

  • The 40mm Cannon was the first weapon to see a nerf, reducing its magazine size from 20 (25) to 12 (16) (4/10/2014)
