When has a 1-hit kill weapon ever been bad?


When it doesn't kill in one hit due to lag or something.


It kills in 1 hit when you don't miss, not the games fault if your aim is off.

One time I remember hitting someone right on and no kill :/

I like the railgun for KotH games. Enemies chilling in the hill. Railgun. Triple Kill. >:D
In most Big Team games though, it loses some of its shine because enemies rarely bunch up.

It's SUPPOSED to kill in one hit if you don't miss. Lag and missing are 2 different things. It's not my aim that is off, it's the the hit detection due to lag that's off. Railgun is hit or miss depending on the match. 1 match I could be hitting some shots that definitely shouldn't be killing a person, but they are killing them, and the next match shots that should be killing them aren't.

The Railgun feels like the Boomshot in Gears of War 3. Shoot and hope for the best. You might get a crazy kill, or you might get nothing. It's still good; I'm just saying it isn't the most consistent.

It's bad, but I still run for it because the sound and the kill is so satisfying. It's awful on vehicles but I still try to put in the last shot to a smoldering Warthog with one.

It's not really a bad weapon; it's just my least preferred out of the power weapons. Everything else fills a role that it can do better than it can. It's kind of versatile. Kind of. But not really to the point where I'd use that over other weapons.

ITT opinions

There isn't a way of proving if this game is good or bad seeing is how its completely subjective argument.

It's basically the laser from Halo 3.
