How to Make A Beam as the railgun in Quake3Arena

How can i make a Beam just like the railgun
in Q3A with OpenGL
with glBegin(GL_LINES) and glEnd()
there is a limit to the linewidth
and that is my problem
can someone help me

The beam is not a line, it is a billboard constrained only about it’s length.

Check where is the nearest object the beam cross-lines with and draw GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP (faced towards observer) up to this place.
