The Rivet Kannon is a powerful Ork ballistic weapon that also serves as a primary tool of construction for Ork Mekboyz. This fearsome tool-cannon launches heated rivets as long as a grown human's forearm, and does so at a truly impressive rate.
Though not particularly accurate, the armament's rate of fire more than makes up for its imprecision, and with the heated rivets able to pierce through even Imperial Power Armour, this weapon has developed a dread reputation amongst those enemy forces who have encountered it. It is often deployed as the primary turret weapon on Kustom Boosta-blasta attack vehicles.
