The Chicken Cannon is a post-Moon Lord launcher that is dropped by Yharon, Dragon of Rebirth. It rapidly fires chicken rockets that bounce up when hitting the ground, then explode with a very large radius and inflict the Dragonfire debuff. The explosion lingers for a few seconds and ignores immunity frames. Right-clicking while any rockets are still in the air causes them to instantly explode.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


The Chicken Cannon in action. Note its excessively large explosion radius. Additionally note the right click detonating the rocket in midair.
