In the weapons menu, you can decide where on your ship you would like to equip the cannon. Whenever you receive a new cannon, all you need to do is add it to your ship’s inventory and it will be able under the weapons menu.


Target ships in combat

With your Bombard Cannon equipped on deck, all that’s left to do is to engage with an enemy ship in combat. When aiming use the scope on the screen as a target marker, as seen in the image above.
