This article is about the technology. For the unit, see Hand Cannoneer.

Hand Cannon was a technology in Age of Empires II that could be researched at the Archery Range once the Imperial Age is reached. Requiring Chemistry, it granted the training of Hand Cannoneers once researched.

Technology availability
Available Unavailable

With the introduction of The Conquerors, the Hand Cannon technology was removed from the game, meaning that Hand Cannoneers become available once Chemistry is researched.

In addition to Hand Cannon, the Bombard Cannon technology was also scrapped in The Conquerors. The Cannon Galleon technology was scrapped in update 47820, meaning that Cannon Galleons only need Chemistry. Bombard Tower is the only Gunpowder technology which still needs to be researched.
