Being that this is the most powerful handgun in the world, and can blow your head clean-off, you've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

— Harry Callahan, and the Fallout 2 item description

The .44 Magnum revolver is a small gun in Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: .44 Magnum revolver
The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a powerful, six-shot, double-action revolver manufactured by the U.S. company Smith & Wesson since 1955. Centuries later, copies of it can still be found in the wastes.

CharacteristicsEdit

This revolver boasts the highest damage per action point of all single-shot weapons available from the early to the late-mid stages of the game. Its main strengths are the low AP cost of 4 per shot in lieu of the standard 5, and the powerful .44 Magnum JHP round. This ammunition increases the weapon's damage on soft (unarmored) targets by over 60%, to an average of 24.42 Hit Points, while an average critical to the eyes (with a critical roll of 50) will average 72 HP.

The weapon's weakness is its short range of only 15 hexes. This can be improved, to a degree, by modifying the weapon with a speed loader which, in addition to lowering the AP cost of reloading, curiously also adds 5 hexes to its range. Even with the modification, the weapon's range remains its main handicap.

NotesEdit

  • This weapon is incredibly cheap for its combat value. At only 600 caps, it is the second cheapest pistol in the game.

Behind the scenesEdit

The item's description is a reference to Clint Eastwood's iconic line in Dirty Harry.
