Tips[edit | edit source]
- 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 and 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.
- Though the Magnus's recoil is manageable, Steady Hands can still prove beneficial, especially at longer ranges or when firing rapidly.
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 1.4 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.
- Despite this, the sound of spent cartridges dropping to the floor can still be heard, even though the cylinder would hold the cartridges in place until a reload.
- The Magnus's muzzle has a particle emitter attached that billows smoke after a shot has been released.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- The muzzle's particle emitter is prone to glitching, leaving the Magnus permanently smoking for the duration of the mission.
