Boron Railgun is a weapon introduced in Ultimate Omelette, and your starting weapon in that game. It's the successor of the Vulcan Chaingun. It has a weaker version, known as the Moron Railgun.

Strategy

It accelerates superheated metalloid chunks faster than anything else. The firerate at the beginning is decent, and it speeds up with increasing power levels. Projectiles travel extremely fast, but their spread is limited to strictly forward-only. Manual fire isn't any better than automatic fire, so you'll have to watch out for Overheating.

It's available from Chapter 1 in Ultimate Omelette, and from Chapter 4 in Cluck of the Dark Side.

In Universe, it's unlocked from Tier ?.

Pros

  • Fast firerate.
  • Very fast projectiles.
  • Doesn't use up much reactor power.

Cons

  • One of the weakest weapons at low power levels.
  • No spread.
  • Requires automatic fire.
  • Weak projectiles.
  • Has since been succeeded by the Hypergun.

It's a member of the Metal group, so it has its weaknesses and strengths.
