The Big Barrel is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a cannon-type weapon usable by both enemies and the player.


The Big Barrel has a purple body with a black handle, which has a black marking on it. It also has a crystal-like white object on the top, which is possibly its power source.


In gameplay, the Big Barrel can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by Black Oaks and Black Warriors, who will use them against the player.

Big Barrels can be dropped from defeated Black Arms who wield them, or released from breakable Containers. Touching one will make Shadow pick it up automatically, and pressing PSSquareButton.png/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO.png/XboxX.png (whether on the ground or in mid-air) while using the crosshair to aim will fire it.

The Big Barrel has very low ammunition, like most other cannons, lasting for only eight rounds. It has a medium range of attack.
