Is there a way to dodge the orbital cannon? I tried to kill some player in a Deluxo but the cannon missed? Am I missing something?

If you hit them, they die. It's that simple.

It's likely you were either a split-second early or late when firing or they were at an odd height and this caused you to be a little off on timing.

If it's on manual, you can miss and miss easily. Automatic is easier to make the hit but I don't use it so can't say if it's easy to miss with it on auto or not.

Having shot down several aircraft with mine, I can assure you that as long as you don't miss, the player will be killed.

Ive hit a laggy jet so auto aim doesn't miss I even killed a guy in a wallbreach so it always hits he mustve used manual targeting or his game glitched right as he fired

There is a way, i missed an auto aim and got refund. Maybe jumping from jet "before" it hits you could work.

The autoaim is not a guaranteed hit. If it misses, which it does, you get a full refund. There is no refund for manual shots.

As long as you have the players marker box inside the hit zone, it will hit them. If they are outside of the zone, or close to the edge, you have a far higher chance of missing.

A missed shot, is just that, a missed shot and it does not mean the player avoided it, it means the operator missed the target.

Yeah I used auto aim, they were flying around in the Deluxo, literally over buildings and roads, I thought I had a clear shot coz it was in an open area, no buildings, just road yet it still missed.

Sure I got a refund but then it said I couldn't try again for another 45 mins which sucked.

Autoaim refund allows for no cooldown either so ya your game glitched
