Cannoneer is a special branch of the Explorer Pirate class. Cannoneer is created separately and has a separate tutorial and job advancements. Their second job is Cannoneer, their third job is Cannon Trooper, and their fourth job is Cannon Master.
The Cannoneer was just a regular Beginner sailing on a ship to Maple Island to choose a job path, until a Jr. Balrog appeared and attacked the vessel. The crew was unable to fight back and eventually the Jr. Balrog attacked the soon-to-be Explorer. Possibly the only known Beginner to survive a direct attack from the Jr. Balrog itself, the Beginner was knocked far into the water and nearly drowned. Fortunately, a monkey rescued and brought the Cannoneer to Coco Island. After getting acquainted with the monkey, the Beginner meets intellectual mastermind Cutter, a Pirate and weapons designer from Nautilus. He had created a special secret weapon on orders of his captain, Kyrin, but during an at-sea test run, his ship was wrecked and he found himself marooned on the island.
While searching for food, the Beginner comes across an ignition device that could serve as a prototype of the weapon Cutter was designing, a massive cannon that could launch them straight to the Nautilus. After utilizing it, the Beginner, Cutter, and unbeknownst to them, the monkey, were launched towards the Nautilus. Soon afterwards, the Beginner wakes up under the deck of the Nautilus, meeting Captain Kyrin soon thereafter. Vehemently recommended by Cutter, expressing interest in joining the Nautilus' ranks, and sincerely gripping the interest of its captain, the Explorer is titled a Cannoneer by Kyrin's order. The now-Cannoneer and monkey were now officially recruited and legitimized as Explorer Pirates.
The Cannoneer job branch, unlike other Pirates, has its own tutorial, where it starts on Coco Island, as well as its own 1st job skills. Using Hand Cannons as primary weapons and Powder Kegs as secondary weapons, Cannoneers have slow but strong attacks which revolve around firing cannonballs (without the use of Bullets).
Cannoneers, unlike other Explorer Pirates, do not gain a job specialty skill in 2nd job. Their attacks allow them to fire cannonballs at enemies from afar, with a few support boosts such as Monkey Wave, which increases Critical Damage temporarily upon firing at full power, and Barrel Roulette, which applies a random buff and grants extra damage to your attacks. The monkey also assists with Monkey Magic, a party buff which increases HP, MP, Speed, Jump, and All Stats, as well as Monkey Fury, a skill that fires a cannonball that debuffs enemies and increases damage taken. Additional monkeys aid in battle with Monkey Militia, two monkeys sitting in mini-cannons.
Like the other Explorer Pirates, Corsairs gain access to Nautilus Strike in 4th job; their version decreases the cooldown of Barrel Roulette and Roll of the Dice. Cannoneer also receives Buckshot as a Level 140 Hyper, which triples their attack count while reducing their damage to 45% (does not apply to summon skills).
