For an overview of .44 Magnum revolver models in the Fallout series of games, see .44 Magnum revolver.

The scoped .44 Magnum is a version of the .44 Magnum revolver upgraded with a scope.


The scoped .44 Magnum is a very high-powered pistol, doing 10 more points of damage than the .32 hunting rifle. 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. It's significantly lighter than a sniper rifle and carries a single round more in magazine capacity.

When looking through the scope and firing, there will be no recoil, allowing the player to snipe multiple targets more easily than with an actual sniper rifle, but causing less damage. The firing rate is also higher than the .308 rifle, so this may make up for the lower power when used for sniping.


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


  • Blackhawk - While it is much stronger than the regular .44, it is also the weakest of the unique versions. However, it is the most powerful version in the original game with no add-ons.
  • Callahan's Magnum Broken SteelGametitle-FO3 BS - 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)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. 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)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.

Behind the scenesEdit

Lord Humungus, the villain from the film Mad Max 2, wields a scoped .44 Magnum identical to the one in the game during the scene where he tries to stop Max from reaching the settlers with the truck.
