The scoped .44 Magnum is a weapon found in Fallout 3.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The scoped .44 Magnum is a very high-powered pistol. It has a very long effective range, which is further extended by the scope but also has a low rate of fire for a double-action revolver. When looking through the scope and firing, there will be no recoil, allowing the player character to snipe multiple targets with ease.

Durability[edit | edit source]

A fully-repaired Magnum can fire approximately 229 rounds, or 39 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Blackhawk - While it is much stronger than the regular .44, it is also the weakest of the unique versions.
  • Callahan's Magnum Broken Steel - Named after famous gunfighter and security guard Harold Callahan, Callahan's Magnum is the more effective version of Blackhawk, dealing more damage with slightly more wear and tear on the gun.
  • Paulson's revolver Mothership Zeta (add-on) - 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. Its also unique for not having a scope, while other variants of .44 Magnum revolvers do.
  • Wernher's scoped .44 Magnum The Pitt (add-on) - An unobtainable version of the scoped .44 Magnum carried by Wernher. It has significantly higher health but is otherwise identical to the standard variant.
