In a lot of SF, Kinetic Energy Weapons are touted as almost the ultimate in destructiveness. Of course these are deployed from orbit but KEW are the oldest ranged weapons. They include rocks, bullets (sling and from firearms), arrows, javelins, round and grape shot, FSDS penetrators, and concrete bombs. I don’t think rail guns have been used yet. 
The main difference is how much energy is used.
