Tips[]

  • The Magnus works as a general-purpose version of the SicarusSicarus.png Sicarus, as it primarily deals Impact DamageDmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage, while it deals such damage on semi-automatic. It also comes with higher Slash DamageDmgSlashSmall64.png Slash and Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png 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 Hands12?cb=20190608095452 Steady Hands can still prove beneficial, especially at longer ranges or when firing rapidly.

Trivia[]

  • 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[]

  • The muzzle's particle emitter is prone to glitching, leaving the Magnus permanently smoking for the duration of the mission.
