Everything the true Champion requires is the power of the Sun. With its energy, your enemies will be burnt to ashes and the temperature outside will rise slightly.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Champion Solar Cannon is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 13.2.0 update.

Description

It is a black and red solar cannon that shoots red solar bombs. It has a slow fire rate, high damage, large capacity, and average mobility. It has single shots and area damage attributes. The reload time is pretty slow.

Appearance

This weapon is a reskin version of the Solar Power Cannon, only replaced with "Champion Colors."

This weapon has a white and grey body with 3 red crystal on the top, a silver grip, a grey stock with 2 dark red stripes, a grey energy cell with red detail on it, and a red and white muzzle.

Performance

This weapon shoots a red, circular particle with bullet travel time that has a medium sized explosion on impact. It has area damage, so shooting on the ground in close range near the player makes fighting with this weapon easier.

When reloading, the clip is taken out from this weapon and is replaced by another. It has fixed delay, which means that whenever the player switches to this weapon, there is a delay before using it.

This weapon is very powerful and has a huge blast radius. Paired with a high level elemental module which increases damage, a shrapnel module which increases blast radius and a pouch module which speeds up the reload can make this weapon have one-shot capabilities, MASSIVE blast radius and speedy reload time.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Champion Solar Cannon will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

This weapon has insanely high power, it has a relatively normal firing rate, a medium-capacity, and medium mobility. This weapon is 1-2 rockets kill for Max-Armored opponents.

Tips

  • This weapon is a 1-2 shot kill, meaning you could use this to finish off weakened opponents and if you have good modules, this can be used to wreak havoc on enemy players.
  • Fire at the opponent's feet to take full advantage of its area damage.
  • DO NOT ever rocket jump unless you have spawn protection. It does not launch you too high up in the sky first of all. Second of all, it will take away all your armor points and a big chunk of your health points if you hit yourself.
  • This weapon should not be used in open areas such as nuclear city, and should not be used against double-jumping opponents or opponents with a Jetpack, as this weapon have a very slow bullet travel time. This requires skill, timing and extreme precision. Try aiming for ground opponents to use the area damage to your advantage
  • This weapon is a great weapon to use in block crash because it instantly destroys blocks in a 3x3 radius.
  • Use this at meduim ranges is recommened.
  • Use a fast-firing weapon to shred your opponents after they get hit by this weapon.

Counters

  • Use the Jetpack, double jump, or rocket jump. This weapon is very deadly and you have a good chance of dying if you are hit.
  • Use another high damage area damage weapon such as the Christmas Ultimatum, Big Buddy, Circus Cannon, and Destruction System. If things get worst, use this weapon against the user.
  • Pick off its users at long range using a sniper.
  • At close range, get extremely close and use a melee or flamethrower so the opponent will be forced to take damage from their own weapon.
  • Strafe around so it is harder for the opponent to hit you.

Equipment Setups

Bring a sniper rifle to kill enemies at long range to weaken them. Also bring a rapid-firing weapon such as the Cyborg Hands, along with a moderate damage weapon (preferably Portable Death Moon) to deal with bullet spammers.

Popularity

This weapon is undoubtedly one of the most popular weapons in the game. When accessible to many players (like in the Armory or in the Trader's Van at a cost that many players can afford), many players would want to buy it. It is often loved and wanted by many players, but others dislike it due to its performance and/or its popularity. The people who didn't like this weapon requested to the developers to remove this weapon from the Armory, and they successfully did so, making it only available in the Trader's Van.

Some of the very old players originally used the Anti-Gravity Blaster and/or the Solar Power Cannon because they were the first to have a similar performance. Then, when 13.2.0 came out, people started using this, mainly because they assumed the champion reskin would be stronger.
