Railgun Confirmed as Weapon in Halo 4

A gun known as the Railgun has now been confirmed to be a usable weapon in Halo 4. Here is an official description of the weapon:

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 both hard and soft targets alike.

The Railgun certainly sounds like a pretty kick-ass weapon, but it’s actually not a new weapon. The Railgun has actually been in the Halo universe before. Remember the Gauss Warthog? That big cannon on the back of the vehicle is actually a Railgun. Imagine Master Chief using that bad boy as a mobile weapon.

Hopefully we can use this weapon in multiplayer if we are deprived of using a Mech.
