The Artillerist Artificer has the ability to make Eldritch Cannon(s). The rules for the cannon state that you can make two different sized versions of it:
you can take an action to magically create a Small or Tiny eldritch cannon in an unoccupied space on a horizontal surface within 5 reet of you. A Small eldritch cannon occupies its space, and a Tiny one can be held in one hand.
The wording is a little vague. Do the rules mean that the tiny version:
- Doesn’t occupy a space, therefore must be held in the artificer’s hand
- Can be held in one hand, unlike the small version, but otherwise functions like the small version with regard to space and movement if it is not.
