Railgun upgrade is an upgrade used by GDI and Steel Talons in Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.

Background

Following the Second Tiberium War, GDI continued research into railgun technology, eventually solving the power consumption issue that once limited the weapon to enormous vehicles like the Mammoth Mk. II. As a result, more compact railguns were developed, which could be mounted on most armored vehicles[1].

Railgun technology offers numerous advantages over conventional ballistics, chief among them is intensely superior firepower[2].

Game effect

The railgun upgrade greatly increases the firepower of affected units. In addition, it also makes them more accurate, allowing them to target infantry more effectively. Units with this upgrade are affected by the railgun accelerator support power.
