Uranium cannon shell.png

The cannon shells are the basic ammunition for the tank along with explosive cannon shells. Once enough research is conducted, uranium shells are made available, which are equal or superior in all regards. Since regular shells are still specifically required to manufacture uranium variants, any previously manufactured stockpile can be "upgraded" without waste.

While cannon shells still deal an amount of explosive damage, it is only dealt on the directly hit target and it is also a much lower amount than what explosive shells deal; its primary damage outlet is physical and therefore better suited against worms, nests and large spitters for their lesser resistances against it. It also features much greater piercing power that is reliable for up to medium-sized enemies.
