Linear Cannon and you Empty
PostSubject: Linear Cannon and you   Linear Cannon and you EmptySun Jul 24, 2011 6:00 pm

So, what about this fantastically expensive (and fat) gun should get you interested?

Linear Cannon and you JCR74

Don't think that I'm doing this for fun, but this is actually shooting myself in the foot since right now the Linear cannon userbase is a niche population at best. Only some people realize the vast, unrestrained potential in this weapon.


Let's begin by looking at its stats:

L-size railgun, arts only.

Force: Second highest out of all handheld mainweapons, outclassed only by structure breaker. Third out of all weapons if you count fully upgraded Saggitary Maxis and Genbura cores.
Ammo: 120 is a good amount for what it does, and in fact you can get by with much less (you usually don't live long enough to use it all anyways in a heated game with lag and whatnot)
Range: 330 is more than most other weapons, but you will get outsniped by other railguns.
Speed: 580 is easily the fastest I've seen for any handheld weapon, only outclassed by the Saggitary Maxis series and fully upgraded Genbura, but speed isn't what we'll be focusing on (usually).
Int: 500 seems like a long time until you realize it fires 1 shot, 2 under hypershot. Charge time is 1 sec.

Damage is also split into two parts like all railguns, the impact damage and the splash. Never aim to hit with splash, as for 55 base damage, only 5 damage is for the splash, and 50 is by the bullet.

With this weapon I've been hitting 98's on airs.

Wait, what did you say?

hitting 98's on airs

This was also done by my dugdriver which has all of 24 TEC untuned. Here's one more thing most people don't know about:

Some testing has been done by various parties, and it's pretty clear that the damage composition is 20% shell 80% blast. Which means this is your only real option for a specialist anti-air railgun. With that base force, it's a no brainer to tune for 3x great force if you get your hands on a 3s one, a single great force suffices on the shop version.

Did I mention it pierces?

This weapon will pass through allies and enemies alike, similar to beam rifles and EVE shot, that means you can safely snipe while using your teammates as meat shields. Perfectly viable strategy since your targeting system is not blocked by teammates.

How to use it:

Like all railguns, it is only effective mid-long range, in short range it is completely gimped to death, a short-range antiair weapon is necessary, since the only real threat is rambo airs, you should have enough fly to flee from lands onto higher ground, short boost into flying if necessary (for appropriate arts). Some close-range weapon options include blast zooks, dugdriver AM, gathima AM(the missile one), Alba HD.

If you've ever used it, you might find something with the weapon's aiming system, because the muzzle is actually lower than the handhold, it shoots quite a bit lower and can be blocked by water, terrain and trees. Thus it should be used mainly by M-arts with good fly on high ground, or L-arts propped up by tall LGs (big montaiz LG in particular).

-small build, victory core as close-range anti-air, tried to make it with only UC/Rt shop only parts.
-EDIT: Forgot all about long range unit (it's the full-sized one too, enjoy the self range buff)
-Goast raiders self-explanatory

(For all builds, as there's no linear cannon 3s available other than through a wp cube, use the other 60 free cost for stat tuning)

(For that 3rd slot, if you're not interested in tuning the last great force (because it was gimped by the application of two great forces before it, feel free to substitute great rapid if you want stats, or high shooter if you have lots of room)


Only thing left to do is for Sugu (and a certain handsome player) to evaluate the builds (Read: point out obvious mistakes) for optimal performance, but here's to seeing more of this glorious weapon in the arena. Hope you enjoyed the guide.

Only 2 great forces work
That's why the 3rd tune is something else

I knew something was weird when it didn't give me a default bit.

Forgot all about that free high range tune.

3rd great force is reduced to either 3 or 2 force (forget which, 3 force would still be worth it IMO), great rapid beta is what goes in that 3rd slot if you're not in it to squeeze out maximum damage, next is high shooter if you've got that 15 extra capa to play with.

(Second last line says my body was ready for something wrong in my OP)
