The Hive Cannon in the first was grouped up in the worst weapon sets that it had no way of possibly doing any good in. If the weapon sets were more balanced, people would see just how good of a weapon it is, and how much of a step up it was from the MP5. Now in C2, there is Weapon Loadouts, and the Honey Glob to make the weapon even better.
However, it looses the ability to shoot faster and in a wider spray, and the ability to shoot slower and more accurately. The 'twist your wrist with the wiimote' ability that i was actually very fond of.
