This article is about the ammunition for the dwarf multicannon. For other uses, see Cannon ball.
A dwarf multicannon.

Cannonballs are ammunition used for the Dwarf multicannon and can also be fired using the Barker toad familiar.

In order to create cannonballs, players must be members, have completed the Dwarf Cannon quest, possess an ammo mould in their inventory, and have one or more steel bars. Players must also have level 35 Smithing to make cannonballs. Cannonballs are made by using a steel bar on a furnace, yielding 4 cannonballs per bar. Players gain 25 Smithing experience per bar according to the manual[1], though it is actually 25.6 per bar.

Because cannonballs are made at a furnace, players can smelt iron ore and coal to make steel bars and then use the steel bars to make cannonballs without returning to a bank. Using this method, a maximum of 36 cannonballs can be made from the contents of a single inventory containing 9 iron ores, 18 lumps of coal, and an ammo mould. You could also just have the steel bars prepared and bring a full load of 27 with an ammo mould to make 108 cannonballs. A full load of 108 cannon balls take exactly 3 minutes to make.

Once shot, the cannonball will inflict its damage and disappear completely. Its maximum hit is 30.

Making cannonballs

See the Cannonball smithing calculator for latest profit calculations using Grand Exchange Market Watch prices.

Making cannonballs is a popular method for players to train Smithing for "free". Many players advertising free Smithing experience on the official RuneScape Forums use cannonballs as the method to gain experience.

Smelting cannonballs is very slow - a full load (27 bars) takes 2 minutes and 59 seconds to complete or about 2 times slower than making iron bars. Compared to smelting iron ore with a Ring of forging and then forging the results, for instance, it will deliver less experience overall for the same time spent. However, it is financially rewarding, even when players purchase the materials (either the iron and coal, or pre-made steel bars). They are able to, at a minimum, break even when they sell the cannonballs. For every steel bar made into cannonballs, players usually gain about 130 to 150 coins/bar plus 25.6 Smithing experience.

Note: Although this is true, players skilled at money-making may find that it is more efficient to use a quicker method to train Smithing (i.e. making arrowtips or bolts, which requires less money than making armour) than to use the time saved to make up for the money lost.

Trivia

  • In the Quick Chat interface, there are options to smith cannonballs using all types of smithed metals, including mithril cannonballs and rune cannonballs. Currently, only steel bars can be made into cannonballs.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Avast! Cannonball do be a Decepticon from the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
Life is pain. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.

Leader of a gang of interstellar pirates and captain of the Sea Slag, the dread pirate they call Cannonball is only a Decepticon because Megatron lets his crew roam free, provided they leave the Decepticon starships alone and focus their attentions more on the Autobots. Cannonball is all too happy to do so. When he and his crew aren't looting and pillaging, they're causing trouble in some seedy port on Cybertron, using their ill-gotten gains to purchase black-market energon stars or dubious-sounding "pleasure programs".

Cannonball's crew can be readily identified by the bright airbrushed graphics that adorn their vehicle modes. Cannonball himself features bright green Oingo Boingo-style skeletons.

Though "Cannonball" has been terrorizing spacelanes for centuries, it has not been this Cannonball... he is in fact the tenth space pirate to use that name and legacy. One day he will train a replacement to take his name, and that pirate will take on the legacy with a whole new crew. Until that day, though, Cannonball plans to live it up!

On Earth, Cannonball and his then-landlubber crew prowl the highways, robbing shipments and retreating to the mythical Pirate Oasis.

Arrrr.

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

Toys

Cybertron

  • Cannonball (Deluxe class, 2006)
    • Accessories: Earth-style Cyber Planet Key, hammer and claw attachments
Hide the rum.
Cannonball is a redeco of the Cybertron Deluxe Red Alert toy, transforming into a Dodge Magnum with roof-mounted lights. In both vehicle and robot mode, inserting a Cyber Planet Key into his rear window releases a pair of flip-out (non-firing) blasters. Hidden in his legs (his car-mode hood) are hammer and claw attachments for the "blaster" stub on his left arm in place of a hand.
He came with a silver-bordered Earth-style Cyber Planet Key, with the online Key Code "d2rz" stamped on the back.


Universe

  • Search for the Pirate Moon (multipack, 2007)
Cannonball comes packaged with Cybertron Downshift.

Trivia

  • The idea that the "Cannonball" persona is passed from pirate to pirate over the years is an obvious nod to the Dread Pirate Roberts from The Princess Bride.
  • Cannonball's online bio note has a discrepancy from the version on the package back. The online note refers to Cannonball's crew spending their loot on (in addition to black-market Energon stars) something referred to as "pleasure programs"; on the package, the line is the same, but "pleasure programs" has been replaced by the more family-friendly "hot, airbrushed graphics for their vehicle modes".
