Weapon Loadouts


  • Consider pairing Magnus with Mod TT 20pxIce Storm and/or Mod TT 20pxDeep Freeze + Mod TT 20pxConvulsion 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 along with greater damages on both Slash b Slash and Puncture b Puncture damages, 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 Mod TT 20pxPrimed Pistol Gambit/Mod TT 20pxPistol Gambit to further increase the chances of critical hits. Adding Mod TT 20pxPrimed Target Cracker/Mod TT 20pxTarget Cracker will increase the critical damage dealt.
  • Though the Magnus's recoil is manageable. Mod TT 20pxSteady 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 units.


  • 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.
