In this video I will go through what you need to know about the Matter Cannon. How to craft, load ammo, use it and also upgrade it.

One detail I didn't really go through is the Fuzzy upgrade card, the reason for having it is to use it as an Ore Dictionary with other nuggets. In my mods I don't have many different metal nuggets, but other mods adds more sorts and they can also be used as ammo. The Fuzzy Card can be used in such cases.

One additional thing to say is that these are not the only ways to access the Cannon and upgrade it, however they are the ones I prefer at the moment.

The Matter Cannon can also use Paint Balls as ammo, but since they are not added in the version I'm using I couldn't show them. They are demonstrated in another dedicated video. Here is the direct link, but you can of course find it in the playlist as well:

I have done several videos about AE2, so if there are items or blocks not covered in this one they can probably be found in another video. All my AE2 tutorials can be found in this playlist:

These items or blocks are covered in this video:
-Matter Cannon
-Matter Condenser
-Cell Workbench
-Matter Balls
-Iron and Golden Nuggets (as ammo)
-Acceleration, Inverter and Fuzzy cards (for cannon)


If you like what you see, please make me aware of it in form of a like or a comment. If not, then tell me what you think I should improve. And of course, subscribe if you want to see more.

I can be found on both Twitter and Facebook as well, for video announcements and updates. They are also the preferred ways to send a non-video related question or comment. Sometimes I do things on Twitch as well, place a sub and be prepared!
