Railgun is the title of a group of common lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured by Dahl, Maliwan, Hyperion and Tediore, and feature the Hyperion barrel "Railgun".

Usage & Description

Railgun lasers fire a single, accurate, medium-velocity beam of energy that deals massive damage at the cost of 4 ammo per shot.

While most Railguns have a slow rate of fire, Dahl-made railguns are uniquely able to fire multiple shots for each pull of the trigger due to their burst fire feature.
