      Hive Cannon | Hive Shot
      Primary Fire no longer applies 1x Corrosion Stack
      Hive Shot: Projectile (impact) no longer applies 1x Corrosion Stack
      Hive Shot: AOE now applies Corrosion at a quicker rate
      DEVELOPER COMMENT: After the 2923 patch, the Hive Cannon became ubiquitous in almost every build at the highest level. We wanted to promote a bit more variety, so we kept its “theme” but reduced how easy it was to instantly apply 6 stacks (now 5). This should bring it more in line with other weapons.

          The stagger on this on team mates is ridiculous. I've facetanked some brutal hits without flinching, but apparently bees are where I draw the line.

            Best aoe damage weapon in the game. Mod applies a stacking dot that kills adds - think wasps on ixillis fight, or wasps in circlet hatchery, adds on the jackal fight that will otherwise blow holes in the ice under you, etc. Primary fire is great too, just be careful about staggering yourself or allies.

              Sadly this gun has lost the ability to apply corrosion to enemies with it’s basic shot. Mod still applies it though.

                Vulcan Detonator give this weapon a tier of it's own. The normal attack apply both corosion and burning each hit, the armlet also increase this weapon damage by 25% as well.

                  Hive Cannon+Bandit Set= Fully Automatic Chemical Warfare Due to it getting the initial and AoE hits counted, its 2 chances to get your shot back. Even more effective if you fire into crowds!... Wait, that statement pairs very poorly with the joke above... Anyways, pretty good gun! Just be careful not to shoot your allies, or yourself for that matter.

                    Projectile has two sources of damage, one is impact damage capable of hitting a weakspot, the other is a radial explosion dealing elemental corrosive damage. The bullet size is fairly generous, and you can sometimes get the direct-impact damage shooting very close to the enemies feet. Capable of self-damage and staggering yourself from close range explosions, but the self-damage is extremely minimal. The stagger, however, can be dangerous if you're getting swarmed. The special mod does extremely little explosion damage (and no impact damage), but the corrosive area of effect lingers for a long time, is large, and the damage over time portion is fairly solid for consistent damage-- the mod also gets three charges to boot to cover a larger area.
