Railgun

A heavy turret that uses electromagnetic force to launch shells at very high velocities. Requires very large surges of power (usually supplied by supercapacitors) and has a low rate of fire, and as such it's most often used against large and heavily armored targets.

The Railgun is a Submarine Weapon in Barotrauma. Similar to other turrets, it requires a loader to be linked to it for ammo.

Functions & Usage

Railguns fire high velocity shells that deal high amounts of damage to anything they hit.

Like other turrets, periscopes are typically used to aim and fire railguns. Firing railguns draws power from their connected supercapacitors, as well as shells from their linked loaders.

Ammunition

There are 4 types of railgun shells:

  • Railgun Shells are typically filled with explosives to increase damage.
  • Physicorium Shells are typically used for single targets. Their main advantage over normal shells is the increased direct damage.
  • Nuclear Shells deal damage in a large radius, most typically used against other submarines. Their large explosion radius makes friendly fire a common risk.
  • Canister Shells are good against medium-sized groups of creatures or single medium-health creatures. Can be recycled with lead.

All railgun shells, except for the canister shell, can hold 1 small to medium-sized item that is "used" upon impact. Notably, this can be used to detonate explosives, such as C-4 Blocks, Frag Grenades, or 40mm Grenades. Medical Items, however, will not affect the target.
