Callahan's Magnum is a weapon which was added to Fallout 3 with the Broken Steel add-on.

CharacteristicsEdit

Callahan's Magnum is a unique scoped .44 Magnum that surpasses the Blackhawk (another unique scoped .44 Magnum) in damage, damage per second, and AP Cost. It's the most powerful Small Guns handgun in the game used by the player, surpassed only by the Mysterious Stranger's .44 Magnum (which is unavailable to the player without console commands).

DurabilityEdit

Callahan's Magnum can fire a total of about 205 rounds, the equivalent of 35 reloads, from full condition before breaking, roughly 23 rounds fewer than the normal scoped .44.

VariantsEdit

  • Scoped .44 Magnum
  • Blackhawk - While it's much stronger than the regular .44, it is also the weakest of the unique versions. However, it is the best version in the original game with no add-ons.
  • Paulson's revolver Gametitle-FO3 MZ - Drawn by space cowboy Paulson in the hostile confines of Mothership Zeta, it lacks the scope and fires a slew of pellets instead of a single bullet.
  • Wernher's scoped .44 Magnum Gametitle-FO3 TP - An unobtainable version of the scoped .44 Magnum carried by Wernher. It has significantly higher health but is otherwise identical to the standard variant.

LocationEdit

It can be found in a hard safe within the ruins of the Citadel if one chooses to destroy it while on-board the Enclave mobile base crawler during the quest Who Dares Wins. Enter the door at the bottom of the crater, head up the stairs, and enter the cubicle against the far wall. The safe requires a Lockpick skill of 75, alternatively one can hack a terminal with a Science skill of 75.

This weapon is unobtainable if one does not choose to destroy the Citadel, unless console commands are used.

Behind the scenesEdit

The weapon's name is a reference to Harry Callahan from the Dirty Harry movies who carries a Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum as his signature weapon, even though in the films it was never scoped. Indeed, if one uses Callahan's terminal to unlock the safe, it is revealed that this certain Callahan's first name was "Harold".
