Royale dwarf multicannon detail.png

The royale cannon is an variant of the dwarf multicannon which adds gems and other cosmetic details to the cannon.

To unlock the ability to use the royale cannon, players must spend 100% respect from participating in the Artisans' Workshop. Purchasing this ability will also increase the maximum capacity of the cannon to 90 cannonballs. It is required to first purchase the gold dwarf multicannon for 50% respect - effectively making the true cost of the royale cannon 150% respect.

Once the ability is purchased, a regular or gold multicannon can be converted to the royale version at no cost by speaking to Egil while carrying the cannon in the inventory. (Chat 513)

The royale cannon is untradeable, but it is possible to convert it back to a normal cannon at any time.

After the royale cannon reward is purchased, the player can buy a reward called "Restocking cannon" for an additional 100% respect, which allows the cannon to auto-refill its ammunition as long as the player is within 15 spaces and has cannonballs in their inventory.

The cannon was formerly constructed from four parts - royale cannon barrels, royale cannon base, royale cannon furnace, and royale cannon stand - but it was merged into single item on 20 September 2021. Remaining parts can be converted into complete cannons by using them on Egil, and are otherwise unusable.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the game guide, a picture of the royale cannon is captioned "Dwarves must use the metric system", which is a reference to an iconic scene from Pulp Fiction wherein the characters discuss how a "quarter-pounder with cheese" is called a "Royale with cheese" in France, and one asks if that's because France uses the metric system.
  • All pieces of the cannon have an items kept on death value of 1 coin except for the base, which has a value of 187,500 coins, which is equal to the store price of a normal cannon from Nulodion.
  • While the upgrade was intended to be cosmetic, a glitch once existed that allowed a Royale cannon to be used in areas that do not allow cannons such as the Chaos Tunnels and Kuradal's Dungeon. This has been fixed in a hidden update.
  • When attempting to buy one without first buying the gold version, it gives the message: "You need to unlock 'Golden Cannon' before you can access this."
