I got a lightning cannon today from a valor chest and was...underwhelmed. It doesn't do well versus armor, and I've aimed it right at a mob of boyz in multiplayer and half of them lived...it doesn't arc well either.

Of course, I may be using it wrong (though it's a lvl 186), but has anyone else used them and found them not worth the rarity? (Now thunderstrike gauntlets, they're good. Real cool. Totally worth the rarity.)

Yeah I found the Lightning Cannon was crap in multiplayer but pretty decent in the Campaign.

I've never found a weapon combo to beat my Gatling cannon/melta gun/missile launcher setup. Lightning cannon looks kind of cool, but even at top level you're looking at multiple bursts to down most targets. Where it's useful are on those missions where it's difficult to hit enemies due to intervening terrain. It will happily arc onto targets you can't see.
