Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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
