Strategy

The alt-fire button toggles the Rail Gun between guided and unguided aiming modes. Guided mode makes you automatically lock onto the zeds' weak points, but unguided mode does twice the damage.

In ZED Time try to NOT adjust your aim based on ZED movement. Rail Gun has no projectile whatsoever and hits instantly hence there is no need to predict your aim.
