The Safe And Unsafe Mode Of Railgun In Helldivers 2
The Railgun from the Strategems section has created quite a buzz in the Helldivers community.
While the railgun may sound just like another S-tier weapon in the game, it has a unique setting.
In Helldivers 2, many weapons have different ways to use them and come with various modes or settings.
For instance, you can change things like how fast they shoot or if they have a flashlight or scope zoom.
However, the railgun stands out among the other guns as it has only one choice safe or unsafe.
The only option of safe or unsafe in the Railgun makes players wonder what these settings do in the game.
Players are intrigued to know what this choice does and how it affects the game.
Thus, players are speculating about it via Reddit and Steam to discover what these game settings change.
Using Railgun In The Unsafe Mode
When you use the Railgun in unsafe mode, you can make it shoot even stronger by charging it up more than usual.
This means you can charge the weapon beyond its standard capacity in unsafe mode.
Hence, this overloading of energy can deal heavy damage to the enemy but it can also deal some damage to you.
Even though charging the Railgun in unsafe mode makes it super powerful, it has one drawback.
If you charge the Railgun too much in unsafe mode, it can go very very wrong.
Charging the railgun beyond a certain limit will indeed unleash its full potential but at a cost.
When the railgun gets charged and overpowered with unsafe mode, it explodes and kills both enemies and you.
Hence, using the railgun in unsafe mode is a high-stakes gamble.
