Railgun MOAs are a larger variant of the standard MOAs, they are colored blue and are rarer. They fire at a much slower rate, but their attacks cause significantly more damage and as of Update 8.3 (2013-07-04) knock players to the ground upon being hit by the shot. They must charge their weapon before firing and are vulnerable during this time. Their shots have little travel time, and can pierce walls and objects, including FrostIcon272.png Frost's SnowGlobe130xDark.png Snow Globe.

Utilizing Mod TT 20px.png Handspring or Mod TT 20px.png Constitution (faster knockdown recovery) or both can reduce the knockdown time to minimize risk to players with low shields/armor/health. Mod TT 20px.png Sure Footed (Mod TT 20px.png Primed) and Mod TT 20px.png Power Drift grant a chance to resist the knockdown entirely.

Commonly found after 10 minutes on a Corpus controlled survival mission.

These are based on opinions and may not be 100% true. These should be viewed as advice for finding the enemies until better facts are proven. For endless missions, players may need to stay in-mission for a while until these enemies start spawning.

  • Railgun MOAs are similar to their standard variant, but slightly more durable and they position themselves to a long distance away from their targets.
  • As mentioned, Railgun MOAs take time before firing their railguns. Use this opportunity to destroy them.
  • All their shots cause short, disorienting stuns and even knockdown players in flight. If left unattended, large group of Railgun MOAs can easily dispatch heavily armored players.
  • Like its regulars, the Railgun MOA needs to stand stationary before it attempts to fire.
  • Railgun MOAs can engage their enemies behind cover once these enemies are spotted, as the railgun shots can pass through solid objects.


  • In Update 11.0 (2013-11-20), the Railgun MOA could no longer shoot through a single SnowGlobe130xDark.png Snow Globe, but as of Update 14.0 (2014-07-18) they can.
  • In an undocumented update, Railgun MOAs have been changed from firing a hitscan shot into a very fast slug.
