Impressive. – Near-perfect accuracy. Increased base and critical hit damage. Moderate increase in magazine size, increased maximum zoom and reload speed, consumes 5 ammo per shot.

Usage & Description

The Longest Yard, possessing unparalleled accuracy and damage among railguns, can easily be used in the same manner as a high-rarity sniper rifle, with the added bonus of a large amount of ammunition.

Wilhelm can make great use with this weapon by utilizing skills such as Laser Focus (for increased damage with lasers), and First to Fight (suitable for long-range combat).


  • Because Teh Earworm spawns multiple times during the mission You Can Stop the Music, it is possible to receive multiple Longest Yards during the mission.
  • The weapon emits an unique, high-pitched sound shortly after being fired.
  • This weapon is farmable from Teh Earworm after completing the mission.


  • The weapon's name is a reference to a Quake 3 Arena map Q3DM17, also called The Longest Yard, while its description and type is a reference to the Railgun, a weapon most widely used on said map. The red text is a reference to the 'Impressive' medal, which is earned from 2 consecutive accurate railgun shots without missing.
