Weapon Loadouts Edit
Consider pairing Magnus with Ice Storm and / or Deep Freeze + Convulsion for increased effectiveness against shields.
The Magnus sports 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 along with greater damages on both and Slash damages, plus a good status chance. The sacrificed characteristics are DPS, as the gun is not in burst-fire and it spares less magazine capacity.
Puncture With a decent critical chance and damage to sport with, the Magnus can be installed with Pistol Gambit and Barrel Diffusion to further increase deliverance of critical hits on weak spots. Adding Target Cracker will deal damage up to 320%.
Though the Magnus's recoil is not too severe, Steady Hands can still prove beneficial especially at longer ranges or when firing rapidly.
While Magnus excels against shields and is moderately effective against Infested, it is somewhat disadvantaged against the flesh of Corpus Crewmen and most Grineer.
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.
