I believe that the rail gun is currently way overpowered. I like it to be a one shot kill with very fast bullet travel, but maybe it should have a longer reload.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I think all it needs is a longer reload time.

And what about a maximum range? I think he has none for the moment.

Isn't this just a single-shot gun?

Yes, but it is a one shot kill, has what seems like unlimited range, completely straight trajectory, and very fast reload.

I don't see a problem. It's pretty much like a sniper, unanimously known as the most unbalanced weapon in every game ever. :D

I'm sure you'll tweak the overpowered Phaser as well, eh? That's a one shot kill too, and it has no re-load. O;

I have to agree. I camped in the bottom right of Secret Hideout and won 4 times in a row ..against bots. It is different when playing with other people, my brother has perfected the punch jump and can kill me pretty quickly over in the corner.

That one isn't as overpowered as you need to be in close range with other people.

I don't have a problem with it, mainly because it's very easy to dodge, with the straight line and all. Blaster Gun is far more deadly due to the AoE.

It's a little unbalancing especially cause you can just camp in its spawn and shoot. At least now there'll be a chance to go kill the bugger.

i also noticed that the time slower is really off with the rail gun, i end up forgetting to reload but almost always killing.

I don't think you should "tweak up" the reload. I believe the way to balance this gun is to set a charge time for it to shoot. When you want to shoot, it'll take lets say 0.75 seconds to charge up before it'll shoot.

That's true I guess.... but making a charge up on the gun would make it way more balanced and it would take more skill to use. The reload speed would have to be nerfed significantly to be an efficient balance.

No! It's supposed to be like a .50 Cal sniper rifle and hard to get.

If anything, give it some recoil when not crouched.

The Railgun is fine the way it is. It's a throwback to the old Quake games, and it's pretty dead-on with how it was back then. Google it, kiddies.
