Thing type 302, Rail Ring, is a Match weapon that, when fired, will immediately hit its target no matter how far away it is. It is considered a very powerful Match weapon ring; however, its firing rate is very slow. It can only be fired every 1.5 seconds. Knuckles can fire one Rail Ring per second. This weapon causes a great deal of knockback on the target. 5 shots are automatically granted upon pickup.
Picking up a Rail Ring on the map will not allow the player to fire it unless they have previously picked up the Rail Ring Panel. However, the ammo granted will be retained (provided the player does not drop it) and will carry over when the player picks up the panel. This weapon will reach its maximum capacity at 50 shots.
Giving a Rail Ring the Ambush flag will make it float 24 fracunits above the ground. All Rail Rings that are not already floating above the ground due to Z offsets should have this flag because items that do not float are difficult to collect and look as if they were stuck in the floor. The flag stacks on top of the Thing's regular height, allowing Rail Rings to be a total of 4119 fracunits above the ground at maximum.
