The Pirate Cannon was a vehicle in Battle Royale. Pirate Cannons have two seats: one for a driver and one for a human cannon ball. The driver can wheel the cannon by walking, running, or pressing space for a slight push. Additionally, the driver can aim and fire the cannon, which has infinite cannon balls. The human cannon ball can either hide in the barrel of the cannon, fire themselves out, or be fired by the driver. Once fired, the human cannon ball is put into a spinning state with no control over the direction of travel. The human cannon ball will continue flying until they collide with the ground or are flying for about 10 seconds. Most objects will instantly break if you collide with them during flight, however some can stop the player, causing them to fall to the ground. Unlike most other vehicles, the pirate cannon does have a guaranteed spawn, and can be found at either Lazy Lagoon or one of the seven Pirate Camps.

The Pirate Cannon has been added to the Vault on 9.30 Content Update #1 making it exclusively available through spawners in Creative. It was vaulted due to many glitches with it, plus it lost it's season specialty during Season 9.
