Static Screen - Weapons - Rail Gun (RAIL)
Ballistic Weapon
The Rail Gun fires a high speed slug that is capable of inflicting heavy damage on enemy armor and shielding. Although powerful, ammunition for this weapon is somewhat limited, however it's hard to go wrong with such a well rounded ballistic weapon.

The Rail Gun is not affected by gravity.

1* The numbers in parenthesis next to the damage indicators represent the amount of damage inflicted after phase has been factored in. Due to the complexity of the damage formulae, I have opted not to include the damage inflicted through phasing.
2* Firing a weapon before it has fully rearmed will result in reduced damage. However, contrary to popular belief the damage rate will NOT be affected at constant fire.
3* Any weapon with a blast radius has the potential to do more overall damage (shield, and armor damage) if the blast radius consumes more than one part. This explains why BCs, HBCs, and sometimes EMPs do phenomenal shield damage.
