How do you use the rail gun? Or do I just suck?

I use it like the spartan laser, hold down then release while leading your shot. But when I get killed by it, it's like homing on me... Am I doing something wrong?

You can release it once it's charged like the boltshot
You have to hit them directly to kill a full shielded opponent, splash damage isn't so great.

It's a closer range weapon than you think. The magnetism makes it devastating at close-mid range. Don't be afraid to be aggressive with it, don't treat it like a Sniper/Spartan Laser. You should be on the front line, but also careful about where you are on the map. It's an easy OHK, but the reload time makes it so you need to be near cover to string together multikills. So don't just go out, guns blazing. You should be on the offense while also playing smart and conservatively.

No it's a projectile. You can also scope after you begin the charge. If you scope before it will knock you out of it.

No homing, it's an instant hit.
