Usage & Description
The Longest Yard, possessing unparalleled accuracy and damage among railguns, can easily be used in the same manner as a high-rarity sniper rifle, with the added bonus of a large amount of ammunition.
Wilhelm can make great use with this weapon by utilizing skills such as Laser Focus (for increased damage with lasers), and First to Fight (suitable for long-range combat).
The weapon emits a unique, high-pitched sound shortly after being fired.
This is the only legendary laser whose element is not fixed.
Because Teh Earworm spawns multiple times during the mission You Can Stop the Music, it is possible to receive multiple Longest Yards during the mission.
The weapon is also farmable from Teh Earworm after completing this mission.
The weapon's name is a reference to a Quake 3 Arena map Q3DM17, also called The Longest Yard, while its description and type is a reference to the Railgun, a weapon most widely used on said map. The red text is a reference to the 'Impressive' medal, which is earned from 2 consecutive accurate railgun shots without missing.
