The Photoid Cannon is one of the five artifacts with unique properties introduced in Dark Forest v0.6.

It is a one-time-use artifact.

The Photoid Cannon gives the ability to fire a single attack with massively boosted range and speed.

Upon activating a Photoid Cannon, the planet that activated it will be subject to a countdown timer where the planet temporarily loses some defense. The first attack sent from the planet after the countdown completes will gain a boost in range and speed. After this, the Photoid Cannon artifact is destroyed.

To see the time remaining on the countdown:

  • Select the planet that has the Photoid Cannon activated
  • Open the planet artifact panel (or press "S")
  • Click on the Photoid Cannon to open the artifact details
  • View the countdown timer
