Organ Gun is a Dwarfs siege engine unit in Total War: Warhammer. Should the enemy get too close, an Organ Gun can decimate entire ranks with a well timed blast.
An invention of the Dwarf Engineers' Guild, the four-barrelled Organ Gun is so called because its arrays of barrels resembles the pipes of a musical organ. The Organ Gun's barrels are smaller and lighter than an ordinary cannon's, which means it lacks that extreme range and hitting power, but has the advantage of firing a barrage of shots all at the same time. With a well-placed salvo, and all its barrels firing to maximum effect, an Organ Gun has been known to blow away entire enemy units at a time.
- ↑ Armour-Piercing Missiles: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Because of the slow speed of the Organ Gun, this artillery piece is better at the back of the army. The 25% magic damage resistance is good when versing magic casters, so you don't need to be too wary when versing such races. Typically, the Organ Cannon's barrel are smaller and lighter than the ones used in standard cannonry, meaning it lacks the range and firepower of conventional artillery. However, the Organ Gun makes up for this disadvantage by being able to fire multiple shots at the enemy, able to literally tear apart an entire regiment of soldiers should the crew get within adequate range of the enemy. Where the flame cannon tears through unarmored infantry at short ranges, the Organ gun is equally effective against armored units, but will struggle against hordes of low armor troops.
