“Arguably the most memorable of the weapons to make its debut in Quake II was the now-legendary railgun… ‘The railgun in Quake II was inspired by Eraser—the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie,’ Tim reveals. ‘I went to see it with the guys, and the next day I went to John Cash. I told John: ‘It’s like a rocket, but it’s an instant hit—it’s called a railgun!’” -“The making of Quake 2: Tim Willits explains how the classic id shooter came to be,” by Rory Milne, PC Gamer, March 01, 2019
