A new look at Halo 4's Railgun


A new screenshot from Halo 4's multiplayer leaked onto the internet this weekend giving players a new look at the intriguing ARC-920 Railgun.

Detailed back in May, the ARC-920 Railgun is a "compact-channel linear accelerator that fires a high-explosive round at incredible speed, delivering both kinetic and explosive force to hard and soft targets alike".

The Railgun has been compared mostly to the Spartan Laser from past Halo titles because of having to charge it before firing. One notable difference between the two, however, is that the Railgun doesn't have a zoom function. And while the Railgun doesn't do as much damage to vehicles as the Laser, it does have the potential to change a vehicle's force and direction with a well-placed shot.

Also spotted in the image is the M274 Ultra-Light All-Terrain Vehicle, or better known as the "Mongoose". Basically a futuristic ATV, the Mongoose's quick speed is perfect for Capture the Flag or other objective-based games in Halo.
