Notes Edit

  • The blades will get stuck in the bodies of some of the special infected, such as the Jumper and the Cutter.
  • This weapon has quite a lengthy reload time, however (in some game versions)  weapon reload times can be shortened by starting the reload animation, then dashing or swapping to another weapon and back.
  • The Blade Cannon has two unusual qualities. It can ricochet off objects, and it can fire through the walls of Weapon Shop compounds, which are normally impenetrable.
