    Try some 1 on 1 CA on Thuderstruck, with one player only using RG, the other only using LG. See who wins

    Well matey there's no easy way is it.
    But OP idk why do you call dudes who use rail cowards. Just because they know the positions, know the angles AND you suck? That's a bad way to go mate. Learn RG pls. It's HARSH and PAINFUL but RG is a preferred gun next to LG in t4.
    Why?
    Because it's a hitscan precision weapon that deals a huge amount of damage and makes enemy REALLY ANGRY.

    There are people only hitting 25% in LG battles. Its easy to pwn them with close combat rails

    I was curious about it and I needed this data to present to a clan mate that is overly fascinated with the railgun, so I took this occasion to do a bit of 5th grade math.

    Let's imagine you both wait until spawn protection fades out, then start shooting at the same time. You need 4 rails, he needs 43 LG cells. At 25% LG, he will need 8,6 seconds to kill you. In this time, you will shoot 6 times, so you need 67% railgun to combat 25% LG.

    Stable 25% LG is considered bad aim, stable 67% RG is considered good aim. So it still needs slumming conditions to actually happen :)

    36% LG will win if you hit 4 rails and miss 1.

    48% LG is enough to kill you before you even have a chance to hit 4 rails in a row. (sounds like a fight of strenx vs k1llsen)

    Railing from afar + taking cover is devastating, but in close range fight you really need to switch away from the rail :)

    Tbh, I find those close combat rails easy if the enemy is just mindlessly charging towards you. And if I hit the first two rails, I mostly go for the next two. Few things are more rewarding than killing a full CA player with 4 consecutive rails But you know me, its usually my rockets pwning your LG

    I can only give you this piece of advice.
    If you think injustice is send upon you (like here you think railers are cowards), you should follow these steps:
    1. See whether you can turn the injustice into your own favour (owning noobs with rail yourself).
    2. If not possible, complain.

    I used to hate railers/lgers and think that rocket was better. So I focussed on rocket mostly.
    My accuracies in rail and lg were like 15-20%. Then I thought, hmm, maybe I can own with lg and rail aswell.
    Now my accuracies are like 40 for rail and 20-30 for lg. And I use them a lot more, also play a lot better.

    So just become a railing owner and tell your bloody mind to **** about being a coward.

    Why even bother posting if all you're going to suggest is what I said isn't an option?

    Because your stubbornness gives an advantage to every single opponent you meet, and people here, beside trolling, generally help others get rid of bad habits.


    Tbh if I learned that the guy I'm playing against hates railgun and avoids using it, abusing long distance railshots is EXACTLY what I would do for the rest of the match. Because frankly, it would be the most efficient tactic. Prefering a particular playing style is one thing, being obsessive or just plain stupid about it is another ;p

    As few guys said before me, I will also suggest you to learn how to use railgun. It can be very powerful wepon if used properly. But when I play CA e.g. and I see that my oponent is better in rail than me, what I usually do is to wait for a shot, dodge it and immediately do one fast RJ to him. In most situations it outputs just what I want - my enemy dead or escaping low on health.
