Or do you want the cannonball to "explode" when it pierces smaller enemies?

World scripts is when you make a script and save the .lua file to /Content/SeriousSam3/Scripts/CustomWorldScripts/ directory. This script will be automatically executed whenever a new level is loaded, you don't need to put a script entity anywhere.
Continuously exploding but otherwise behaving the same as the Cannon is the main feature of the weapon though.

What do I need to do to connect the weapons and the codes together in the script? I've messed around a little bit in official levels before to change some model animations and enemy health, but nothing significant like coding cannonball explosion behavior. I still don't know things like the syntax and the variables or whatever you call it.
