    heres why:
    It deals higher dmg then a sniper crit, if upgraded the same

    The med-close dmg is op

    057754C2-3AB5-458C-BE27-E432FF4BA9FA.png
    And that’s only a rare!
    And I also think it 100% pops bubble

    So here’s a gamplay changer

    Railgun only does 50%-70% strength

    But!

    The % starts at 30 (instead of 50), and it can go up to 200%,

    Meaning that to get good dmg with it, you’ll have to aim well across the map, and not charge in like this shooter here and deal massive dmg.

    20sec cooldown, pretty fair imo plus you need to clear linear shot

    Yea I think RG is fairly balanced. In one event today I actually had a Defender that did a decent job... I realized that he used two RG's, which made sense... but it also means he did a LOT of waiting

    No it doesn't pop bubbles 100% of times try hitting T5R to a T5E bubble.
    That damage of RG is worth it 22.2sec cooldown plus incredibly hard to hit because of waves and % damage reduction on distance.
    Its balanced.
    Comparing it with Sniper is not just. Because
    1) Sniper is single slot,
    2) Sniper has half cooldown,
    3) Sniper has arch to its shot making it easy to use.

    Right now TS is only sure-fire way to counter sniper crits. If TS is nerfed then there will probably be more sniper spamming :(

    Actually any railgun can delete any tesla tesla shield from any range, it's just a feature of the railgun.

    Somewhere deep inside me I hope you're just kidding but I'm afraid this is not the case. Have you actually used railgun yourself or are you just pissed that this guy killed you with 1184 damage shot (ridiculously low damage if you ask me). Like others have mentioned, railgun is extremely difficult to use efficiently and is definitely far from being overpowered.

    Especially I'm stunned that you're having problems with shooters charging in and shooting right at your face. Come on, railgun damage meter already starts at 30 % (not 50 % like you said in your post) and I can guarantee a 30 % damage with 20 second cooldown already makes it so that only idiots use it the way you described.

    I also wish he was but knowing his post history on this forum I'm afraid this is just one of his dozens if not hundreds of bad suggestions :(

    I dont even have my training maxed for my blast cannon and its critting for over 2800.
    Blast is very easy to use, much shorter reload time, and your salty because this guy landed an 1100 damage shot?
    Railguns deserve major damage as they are very hard to use, and have such a long cooldown.

    Here is a fun game for you, equip a railgun and a sniper to your ship.
    Note the damage you have with each from in game achievements, and play ten games.

    Now check the in game achievements, if the 2 items are a similar in rarity / level, I bet you will have twice as much damage from the sniper, as its so hard to miss and crits often with a short cooldown. Compared with the clumsy railgun, and long cooldown.

    Yeah quite funny, railgun is far from op. Although my max damage one time was just under 2800. Hit a guy blind from across the bay with a T5 epic
