Turnip Cannons are weapons that appear throughout Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and its Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS ports. They appear in certain levels, such as Turnip Cannon Jungle, Battle Tower Blitz, and No Sleep at Magikoopa Keep.
To use the Turnip Cannons, the player must first pull a blue handle, which spawns the Turnip Cannon (and causes Captain Toad or Toadette to enter it). Then, the player can use the Wii U GamePad gyroscope to aim it and press to fire Turnips at enemies, coins, Super Gems, and Rock Blocks. In the Nintendo Switch version, the player presses on a docked Nintendo Switch, or touch controls in handheld mode. In the Nintendo 3DS version, the player uses touch controls.
