An ancient Desert Eagle pistol, in .44 magnum. Interest in late 20th century films made this one of the most popular handguns of all times.Fallout and Fallout 2 description

The Desert Eagle is a small gun in Fallout and Fallout 2.

Characteristics

The Desert Eagle serves as an excellent mid-game pistol, offering higher damage than the old 10mm, and a fairly common ammunition type. It out-ranges the .44 magnum revolver by a bit, and carries 2 more rounds in a magazine, but the .44 magnum does more damage and can be fired for fewer AP. Overall, this weapon is great until a needler pistol or .223 pistol are found. It could be replaced by a 14mm pistol, but only with an armor-piercing fix patch.

Variants

In Fallout 2, it can be upgraded with an extended magazine, increasing its ammunition capacity to 20 rounds.

Locations

Fallout

Fallout 2

Notes

In the Fallout demo, the Desert Eagle is called a Magnum pistol.[1]

This was Chris Taylor’s favorite gun during Fallout’s development, so he had to include it. It and the 9mm Mauser are the only two “real-world” firearms in Fallout.[2]
