Black Dragon Cannon was a Lunar New Year weapon in Counter-Strike Online. It is currently available in Top 50 Decoder.

Overview

This item can be obtained from Top 50 Decoder or Top 50 Unlimited Decoder.

This is a cannon decorated to look like a dragon. It is a single-shot break-action equipment that has 20 Cannon Rounds in spare, which detonate within the targeted area creating a large volcano-like explosion, dealing tremendous damage to anything in its radius. Also, the weapon's gun barrel is built short, granting excellent mobility in combat.

Advantages

  • Deals very high damage when fired in close range
  • Light weight
  • Lights up target for a short period of time
  • Good for destroying obstacles in Scenario modes
  • Can kill multiple targets at once
  • Moderate knock-back power

Disadvantages

  • Effective in close range only
  • Damage decreases over range
  • Small magazine capacity
  • Expensive price for both weapon and ammunition
  • Obtainable only through events and code boxes
  • Deals low damage to bosses
  • Single-shot firearm

Tips

  • After firing the cannon, it is advisable to switch to your secondary weapon to stun/kill the enemy if it survives the initial shot.
  • Always remember to fire the weapon in close range as the damage decreases the further away you are from your target, effectively making the cannon useless.
  • Combine the Black Dragon Cannon with the Deadly Shot ability for maximum damage output.
  • This weapon can instantly kill enemies within one shot in Human modes.
  • Not recommended for dealing with bosses since it only deals 2000 damage to bosses.
  • Recommended when facing mini Bosses.
  • This weapon can be used effectively in Pursuit-type Zombie Scenario modes as it kills multiple zombies with one shot and breaks barriers easily.

Trivia

  • The Black Dragon Cannon is the fourth break-action weapon to be introduced into the game. The first being the M79 Saw off, the second being the SVDEX's grenade launcher and the third one being the Double-barreled shotgun.
  • There are two Chinese characters written on the weapon. The first one is the character "Hēi"(黑) written on the weapon's buttstock which refers to "black" in English while the second is the character "Dōng"(東) written on its barrel which refers to "East" in English.
  • This weapon does not share the same ammunition as the M79 and M203.
  • A replica of the Black Dragon Cannon was made by the gimmick presenters during the CSO World Championship 2013, specifically in the Zombie 4: Darkness announcement.
  • There's a glitch where the gun freezes for a plenty of seconds when firing; though only if the user has high latency.
  • This is the second weapon which doesn't show the user reloading animation in third-person view after M79 Saw Off.
  • In Indonesia servers, the Erupt Cannon is named as "Drake Cannon" instead.
  • So far, this is the only Lunar New Year Weapon that cannot be enhanced. Instead, it has Red Dragon Cannon for its upgraded counterpart.
