Synonyms of "Blast" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between blast and ball ?
A: They are almost the same. Older people will say ball. Younger people will say blast. For example:

Q: What is the difference between blast and burst ?
A: A blast has a loud sound, and is like a blow or an explosion. "I heard cannons blasting in the distance."
When something bursts, that means it breaks after a lot of build-up, tension, or pressure. "The water balloon burst because she filled it with too much water!"

Q: What is the difference between blast and assail ?
A: 'Blast' has multiple (similar) meanings and is common.
Ex.: 'blast off' (like a rocket); 'a blast' (a great time, slang -- "We had a blast!"); 'a blast' (a jet or fast-moving stream [of a type of material]); 'to blast' (to fire at [someone/something])

I think you mean the last definition. 'Assail' is somewhat uncommon, while 'blast' is almost slang, informal and common, also implying a much more forceful attack.

"They blasted their cannons at us." -- They forcefully fired their cannons at us.
"They assailed us with their cannons." -- They fired their cannons at us. (Possibly again and again, or in a strategic pattern.)
