That's why the advice to feds is to run on top of a cannon firing enemy to avoid damage.

I've killed so many cannon enemies who never did any damage to me that I always have to sigh at the posts by cannon users who think they have the ultimate build. A build that forgoes everything for a situational gamble is a build that works right up until you run into the guy who knows what you are doing wrong.
This is true and its a pain because depending on your camera angle and such it can be impossible to see why you cant fire. By the time you have worked it out the fed has probably blown you away.
