Reinforced Rails are an upgrade to Phased Magnets with additional shield bypass and a unique minimum range reduction. It is restricted to cruisers.
Strategy and Setup
Reinforced Rails have the same mass requirement as compared to Phased Magnets but with 5% more shield bypass, ignoring even more of the enemy's shield defenses.
This special also reduces the minimum range of your Projectile weapons, preventing enemies from hiding within.
Reinforced Rails has around twice the XP of Phased Magnets. For short-medium range Projectile weapons such as Gemini Driver, Storm Driver and Tempest Driver, the minimum range decrease may not be needed at all.
Reinforced Rails is the first weapon boost that affects minimum range.
