Why isn't Rail Shot coming out of blaster?

Seriously, why does it deal Weapon damage, but comes not out of weapon? Other projectiles, those deal white damage come out of weapon mostly or involve weapon in some other way. There is ingame animation of red "lazorbeam" shot (very similar to Rail Shot) fired from blaster pistol used by various NPC & Companions. Yet player version for some strange reason comes out of bracer. Mercenaries, with their Dual Wield also deal two hits of damage with rail shot (100% base damage with 100% base accuracy and 30% base damage with 67% base accuracy). So mercenary RS anim can be made to simultaneously fire two "lazorbeams" from both blasters. As well Powertechs almost don't use their weapons, and RS animation might be changed to involve weapon singhtly more - at least for that one ability.

It's a thing for Innovative Ordinance. I think when you go IO or Arsenal (not entirely sure) you get Mag Shot, which replaces it.

Again, if anyone can correct me that'd be nice

Yes, IO gets a very nice Magnetized Shot from the hip. Looks very cool. Should get it earlier but with Master's Cron...

Cuz it's a railgun variation and you don't fire metal things from your blasters?

Metal things don't deal Energy damage though. Actually railguns can accelerate plasma as well.

But technically speaking it would still be better if it were to come out of the blaster.
