It is like the SL for midrange combat.
The introduction never had a name, and all the answers to my questions never came.

But you can't see a railgun shot coming at you.


You can see the opponent charging it. I've found a simple jump is usually enough to avoid their targeting. Then an easy kill against a reloading/weapon swapping opponent.

because it's really satisfying to get a kill with it.

Railgun is pathetic.

Rockets do more damage.
Rockets have more splash.
Rockets aren't weak as piss against ALL vehicles.
Rockets will do better against people even if you don't hit directly.

Railgun has close to no splash.
Splash damage from the Railgun does almost nothing.
Railgun is weak as piss against every vehicle.
If the Railgun misses, then it's completely wasted.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is god tier. There, I said it.

Am I the only one who noticed they got the railgun medal wrong?

Yea while we're at it I dont see the point to the DMR, shotgun, assault rifle etc since none of them are as good as the Rocket Launcher....

The rocket launcher and railgun serve a mostly similar purpose, mid-range instant kills. The comparisons seem justifiable to me.

The Railgun is an anti-personal gun. It's like a Spartan Laser for evil people.
