Description[edit | edit source]
Adapted from the older FCA-26 Rail Driver used to great effect by the Mercenary Regiment loyal to the Ultor Corporation during the course of the First Martian Revolution, it is unsurprising that the EDF would have adopted it.
The Rail Driver shoots ultra-high velocity depleted uranium slugs that appear like blue beams of light and can penetrate almost anything including vehicles and structures, effectively making cover irrelevant to the wielder and turning vehicles into death traps thanks to its powerful x-ray scope.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Marauder Spiker appears to be a modified Rail Driver, the dual cylinders can be seen on the spiker as can the muzzle, barrel, and the front site post.
- The sound the Rail Driver makes, when fired, is the identical sound from the first game.
- According to the first issue of Red Faction: Guerrilla, the rail driver is capable of beaming through concrete that is five meters (16.4 feet) thick and is issued to EDF Elites.
