Sprocket – How to Optimize Cannon Elevation Rate

Getting the most Elevation Rate out of your cannon.

Balancing the Gun

The in-game description is rather vague, so I thought to write a short guide to clear things up.

It’s actually very simple. You just have to adjust the barrel until the blue bar (which represents the barrel’s center of mass offset) disappears, or as short as possible.

If the blue bar is behind the mantlet, increase the length and/or thickness of your barrel/base, or decrease them if the blue bar is in front of the mantlet. Shorter/thinner barrel isn’t always better, you have to find the perfect balance.

For example, this 100mm gun with max elevation torque have enough barrel length, but the center of mass is too behind the mantlet.

So we increase its length and thickness, shortening the blue bar until it is gone.

The gun is now perfectly balanced, elevation rate increased from 3.13 to 4.08, while the longer barrel also slightly increased penetration and accuracy.

That’s all there is to it!

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
