This weapon cannot be independently obtained in normal play. It is provided here for comparisons sake.
Inferno cannons spawn on all centipede burners, including those gestated by a colony. However, it is not possible to obtain it directly in normal play. Pawns carrying it will not drop it on death, downing, or complete loss of manipulation like other weapons. It can be spawned in by the Debug actions menu but, like all unobtainable weapons, will disappear after being dropped.
The inferno cannon is a medium-range siege weapon armed to centipedes only, and it won't drop upon its death. It fires a projectile that sets anything within a 2.4-tile radius on fire, accuracy for touch range is 79, short is 42, medium is 18, and long is 6. While its shots deal trivial damage, the primary threat is that it starts fires that can consume large areas and cause extensive damage if left uncontrolled. Characters caught by its fire will run out of their cover in an attempt to put themselves out and will not fight back when damaged, making them sitting ducks. Burns do not cause bleeding but instead cause extensive pain, which leads to shock and incapacitation, or uncommonly scar the pawn badly. Downed colonists are also liable to death by fire unless rescued or put out. Shots can burn flammables through walls, so use extreme caution when opening ancient shrines as you may not want to trigger the spacers while the threat still lingers around.
If you haven't already switched from wood walls and floors, Inferno Cannons are a significant threat. To avoid the worst of the collateral fire damage, build bunkers made of stone to fight Centipedes from, and keep firefoam poppers handy just in case fire threatens your stockpiles or farm fields.
