The Hail Stone in Steamlands
|The above content only applies to Steamlands.|
The Hail Stone gun has a rectangular base which takes up two blocks, and a medium sized cannon that has the appearance of a cannon on top of a half-circle.
It appears much bigger than its Steamlands appearance, and cartoon like. Other than these two changes, it has not changed at all from is Steamlands appearance.
Hail Stone, as its name implies, fires heavy iron balls which when hit an enemy tank seem as if it's raining stones. The Hail Stone is widely considered a cannon than a gun, which is why it is commonly written as Hail Stone cannon. The cannon of the Hail Stone can rotate in all directions. Hail Stones can either be placed with the base two blocks foreword or two blocks down. The metal balls fired by the hail stone deal more damage than the bullets of usual guns.
The Hail Stone is also the first gun to use weapons other than bullets. Hail Stones appear throughout Steamlands, used by enemies and the player and can be found often on the ground. The Big Ben has a similar appearance to the Hail Stone, and the Matryoshka attacks similar to the Hail Stone. If the player is moving fast and a Hail Stone cannon on the player's tank is shot, it will most likely land on the player's tank. The Hail Stone's health starts out at 300 health points an and can be upgraded to 330. The Hail Stone's metal balls deal 30 damage and can be upgraded to deal 35.
Hail Stone fires small metal balls like in Steamlands, and aims at the player before firing. The metal balls don't deal that much damage, and can't reach the player when they are standing on the stone platform at the top of the level. Hail Stone can be destroyed, and can take more damage than Determinators.
