This article or section refers to "enhanced version" content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is absent on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.
V



"Fully-automatic, battery-powered gun, perfect for those looking for a more unusual yet highly-lethal weapon."
— Description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.


The Coil Rail Gun is a new weapon featured in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V; the weapon is exclusively available to those returning to GTA V from the original PS3 or Xbox 360 versions.

According to the inscriptions, the Rail Gun is manufactured by Coil.

Design and Performance

"All you need to know is - magnets, and it does horrible things to the things it's pointed at."
Ammu-Nation description

The weapon appears to be high-tech and fires inert rounds at high velocity.  

According to IGN.com, one shot is enough to destroy a car. According to computerandvideogames.com, rounds don't cause damage if they miss or land near the target. The shot seems to reach its target instantly. However rate of fire is very poor, taking several seconds between shots to cool the weapon. As a result this weapon seems very effective at taking down helicopters and destroying vehicles, but in return seems less effective against enemies on foot.

According to its Social Club description and stats, it is automatic, works with a battery and has low mag capacity.
