— In-game description
The .44 AutoMag pistol is a semi-automatic pistol designed in the late 1960's by AutoMag Corporation and is chambered in .44 AMP.
In-game, designated as the .44 Mag Semi-Auto, this handgun is similar to the D-50 in terms of recoil and magazine capacity, but the damage output is only above-average. Although the weapon's baseline damage is one point less than that of the 1911 TACOPS, the amount of shots required to kill/down Operators is the exact same at all ranges. At optimal range, it needs only 2 shots to take out Light Armored Operators, but 3 for Medium and Heavy Armored Operators. However, the gun's high recoil combined with its magnification make it an incredibly difficult weapon to use effectively. This makes the handgun suitable for headshots and mid to long-range gunfights.
Unique to this pistol is the low-power scope, which is functionally similar to a Scope 3.0x. Not only can the handgun be aimed with the same accuracy as other weapons equipped with a Scope 3.0x, it also possesses the fast ADS time of a handgun.
