GTA Online players praise Railgun addition

A GTA Online player asked on Reddit, “do you think that the rail gun will be the next overpowered griefing tool.”

The Railgun is a single-shot weapon that excels in taking down vehicles. Mastering the weapon requires pinpoint accuracy, and its poor blast radius limits its impact in dealing with large groups of enemies.

In the right hands, the Railgun has the potential to be overpowered, but community members believe it will serve more good than evil.

One player responded, “A griefing tool needs to be mobile so that it can chase people down. This is much more defensive, and I think it’s definitely more of an anti-griefing tool than a griefing tool.”

A second user added, “I think it will be both a griefing tool and an effective way to combat griefers.”

Community members agree the weapon will be perfect for taking down pesky vehicles. “if I need to take out a jet or helicopter for whatever story or anti-griefer reason, it’s just as effective as the explosive heavy sniper was.
