Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • Consider pairing Magnus with Ice Storm and/or Deep Freeze + Convulsion for increased effectiveness against shields.
  • The Magnus works as a general-purpose version of the Sicarus, as it primarily deals Impact damage, while it deals such damage on semi-automatic. It also comes with higher Slash b Slash and Puncture b Puncture values, plus a good status chance. The sacrificed characteristics are DPS, as the gun is not a burst-fire and it has a smaller magazine capacity.
  • With a decent critical chance and damage to sport with, the Magnus can be equipped with Primed Pistol Gambit/Pistol Gambit to further increase the chances of critical hits. Adding Primed Target Cracker/Target Cracker will increase the critical damage dealt.
  • Though the Magnus's recoil is manageable. Steady Hands can still prove beneficial, especially at longer ranges or when firing rapidly.

NotesEdit

  • While Magnus excels against shields and is moderately effective against Infested, it is somewhat disadvantaged against the flesh of Corpus Crewmen and most Grineer units.

TriviaEdit

  • Magnus is Latin for "Big" or "Great".
  • Its Reinforcements preview shows that it has 2.7 on its reload time, even though its actual reload time is 2.0 seconds. Both were released and shown at the same update.
  • Unlike the Vasto, the Magnus is a break-action revolver, which means it is opened from its chamber to load a new cylinder.
  • It seems to billow smoke from its chamber after a shot has been released.
    • This particle emitter is prone to glitching, leaving the Magnus permanently smoking for the duration of the mission.
  • The soundbite for dropping shells is played even though the Magnus is a revolver
