Hand Cannons, also known simply as Cannons, were an unusable weapon wielded by the Vampire hunter cannoneers and Demon hunter cannoneers in Soul Reaver 2

Role[edit | edit source]

Hand Cannons were first encountered by Raziel in the Pre-Blood Omen era, shortly after he left the Sarafan Stronghold and ventured out into Nosgoth and met the first Vampire hunter cannoneer enemies (of Moebius's Vampire Hunter faction) who were armed with the hand-held cannons as weapons. Cannons were featured again in the Post-Blood Omen era, where the weapons were held this time held by the Demon hunter cannoneers of the Demon hunter faction.[SR2][1][2]

Hand cannons were used by cannoneer enemies to fire cannonballs at Raziel from long-range and could also be used as melee weapons at short-ranges[1]. The Cannons were unobtainable weapons however; once the cannoneers were defeated their cannons would be dropped, but could not be interacted with in any fashion.[SR2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Hand Cannons are referred to as "vhcanon" in game files[SR2] and simply as "cannons" in guides.[1][2]
