Nuclear Shells are Railgun ammunition.

Description

Nuclear Shells are a special type of ammunition fo the Railgun. They are high-risk high-damage, and most often used to fight the biggest enemies, including submarines, and tight groups of smaller enemies. Their explosion range is 15-meters wide and their damage is the highest of all ammunition meaning they can kill whole swarms, or destroy entire submarines in one hit. They are only comparable to Nuclear Depth Charges.

Function

Nuclear Shells can be placed inside Railgun Loaders to be used as ammuniton for the linked Railgun. They cause insane amounts of Burns and Deep Tissue Injuries, very high amounts of Radiation Sickness and high amounts of Bleeding in a 15 meter radius. Additionaly they cause an EMP with a 20 meter radius, frying all devices in range, and a radiation cloud with a 10 meter radius, causing Radiation Sickness in the area over the next 10 seconds.
They can be loaded with any small item, most notably with explosives, which detonate on impact.
