What launcher/cannon does the most damage with the largest spread? – DesignerGuy Nov 6 '12 at 20:19
@DesignerGuy That's a completely different question to the one asked. – deutschZuid Nov 6 '12 at 23:28
@JamesJiao - That doesn't mean it wasn't the information I was intending to obtain. – DesignerGuy Nov 7 '12 at 19:29
Couldn't you just tag them all in one comment? Edit: I see now, thanks. – leety Nov 7 '12 at 19:39

the launcher/cannon that does the most damage with the largest spread would be the incineration cannon. there is the initial blast on contact that has the payload of the run-of-the-mill rocket launcher and then explodes in 6 separate explosions around the initial hit that each do about as much damage as the plasma grenade.
