Damage[]

Weapon Thatch Wood Adobe Stone Metal Tek
  Cannon Ball * * ? 3446 390 40

* The damage is greater than the health-points of structures of that material.

Knocking Out[]

Comparison to other heavy knockouting weapons

Creature   Ballista Bolt   Boulder Rocket Propelled Grenade.pngRocket Homing Missile (Scorched Earth).png Rockets   Cannon Ball
  Titanosaur N/A 70 400 1400 ( 725 on ARK Mobile )
  Rock Elemental N/A 300 360 1800
  Karkinos N/A 437.5 1250 11250

Notes[]

  •   Titanosaur and   Rock Elemental can most effectively be knocked out by shooting Cannon Balls at their head. The   Karkinos, on the other hand, should be shot in the body.
  • The Cannon deals much more damage to structures than a Catapult Turret or Ballista Turret.
  • Damage vs Dino ~ 1800(just did it last night) per shot if you miss the part you need to hit
  • 450 if you hit the torpor marker(head/body), so be careful, you can EASILY kill a Rock Elemental by missing just a couple shots.
