It is a large blast weapon, not a barrage or ordinance weapon. It never scatters.

Just think of it as you would a frag missile, except that it uses a larger template.

I am pretty sure this is in the codex, though.

It's a large blast template that fires like the ordinary gun, (roll to shoot, wound).

What the others say.

It is a large blast template with no need for a scatter dice.

Buy the new codex and look up the railgun in the armoury.

It's weapon profile has all the info you need on it.

If you don't know how to read the weapon profile obtain a rulebook.

The codex says "Heavy 1/Ord. Blast". Therefore, it uses the Ordinance Blast Template, which is now called the "Large Blast Template". It is NOT an ordinance weapon! Therefore...

Choose target. Roll to hit. If you hit, place the Large Blast Template on the squad and roll for wounds, saves, etc.

Exactly.
And if you have the old rulebook, it doesn't say that it doesn't need to scatter, it just never says that it does, so it doesn't. I have a feeling I phrased that oddly.
