Richard and the folks over at FullMag gave a nod to Civ VI by pitting a bowling ball cannon and flintlock rifle against a pumpkin based invader.
Starting off at 70 yards with the flintlock repro, Richard makes an impressive head shot on the mug of the pumpkin commander (or at least it is edited that way) then proceeds to miss the whole invasion force with the bowling ball cannon.
While seemingly impressive, accuracy and bowling balls lobbed in a rainbow arc by a charge of cannon grade black powder aren’t two things that go together and they can’t make it happen.
Leading to the need to move the cannon to point blank range. Because pumpkins.
