On maps that the Cannon Express can be used on, mice will usually yell "cannon," indicating that they want the shaman to use the Cannon Express on them.
How to UseEdit
The shaman must spawn the cannonball near the ground and near the mice's feet in order to launch them to somewhere else on the map.
In the event of a misfire, steering is simply moving left, right, or jumping to get to the platform that you wouldn't reach by staying still.
There are three positions to place a cannonball for different effects: standard, hop and high.
The most commonly used and known version of the cannon express, the Standard Cannon Express. This is used by placing the cannon so that it sticks just above the ground behind the mice, and the very front of the cannon is below the mice's closest foot. It is used for quick and easy flying from one end of the stage to the other.
Virtually unknown in the world where mice roam the wooden earth, Hop is the least used version of the Cannon Express. Hop is very similar to Standard, except the cannon is lower and concealed in the ground with its top just touching the surface. The front of the cannon is right beneath the mice's first foot. The Hop is used for casual 'hops' that cover 1/4 to 1/2 of the stage.
High is used more than Hop but less than Standard. The High Cannon Express moves around the same distance as the Standard, however it's height is favored as it goes higher than the Standard, which helps for mid-flight steering. However, shamans use this rarely as it is harder to sweetspot and get a good Cannon Express. The reason is the cannonball is deep in the ground, with the front below around where the mice's tail comes out. It is a bit more precise, and therefore harder to sweetspot. It's distance is from one end of the stage to the other, varying greatly on how the mouse steers.
- It's tradition to say, "ALL ABOARD THE CANNON EXPRESS!" before using the Cannon Express to let the mice know to stand ready.
