Overview[edit | edit source]
A 44 Magnum is a short to medium range double action revolver which can be found throughout the world, more often at Shotgun Messiah Gun Stores. This weapon is very rare and can be crafted with the correct Gun Parts. This weapon requires the 44 Magnum Bullet and will hold six cartridges and, at full durability it lasts for 350 shots. It reloads automatically if the player is carrying the correct Ammunition, it can be done manually by using the reload key, which is R by default.
Combat[edit | edit source]
The 44 Magnum is a very powerful Weapon. It will make quick work of dropping even the toughest Zombies. At close range, it typically only takes a single shot to the head to kill the tougher zombies, and one shot to the body to kill common zombies. However, due to the sheer power of the ammunition it uses, it delivers a very loud report, which can be heard from up to 70m, leading other zombies to the source. The ammunition it uses is also quite rare due to how sought after the revolver is, which forces it's users to find the Enforcer Magazine and obtain a Workbench so they can craft the ammunition. A huge disadvantage that the 44 Magnum exhibits is the fact that it only holds 6 cartridges in it's cylinder at a time, and as a result requires frequent reloading. This, on top of the rarity and cost of the ammunition, and the fairly long reload time, makes the 44 Magnum unsuitable for crowd control.
Gun Parts[edit source]
Each part of the 44 Magnum can supply a different attribute. It is unknown if the value supplied is based on the quality of the component or the overall quality of the 44 Magnum. 44 Magnum does not really have a durability, each of its component parts have a durability and when any of them fail then the whole 44 Magnum fails.
- Accuracy has changed in Alpha 16, it is unsure how this now affects the accuracy of the weapon
With some weapons the amount of damage take to the weapon itself can change with the quality of the weapon. It is also possible for the damage taken to go up, simulating that it is a finely tuned weapon that can be put out of action quicker. For a 44 Magnum the following describes the minimum and maximum number of uses of the weapon, based on the quality, before it will need to be repaired.
- Minimum Quality (1): 4000 / 20 = 200
- Almost Maximum (599): 12486 / 33 = 378
- Maximum Quality (600): 12500 / 34 = 367

Repair[edit | edit source]
The condition of a 44 Magnum deteriorates with each use until eventually it will stop working and will need to be repaired. This can be done using a Repair Kit.
Other Uses[edit | edit source]
Dismantling[edit | edit source]
A 44 Magnum can be dismantled by placing it into the output slot of the crafting grid. This will break the weapon down into its component state, and display the parts in the main crafting grid. The player can then remove the parts and place them into their bag or tool belt.
Players who have read the appropriate Recipe Book can also use this method to upgrade gun parts in the weapon to a higher quality. To do so, remove the desired gun part from the crafting grid, and replace it with a similar gun part of higher quality. Note that this action must be done in a specific order. You cannot first drag the NEW gun part onto the crafting grid and "swap" it with the old one. You must first drag the old gun part off of the crafting grid and replace or swap it with the new one.
Any player can place the weapon in the output slot, observe the weapon's component gun parts, and remove it from the output slot again without dismantling it. This action will also automatically unload the bullets into their bag or tool belt.
However, although any player can dismantle a weapon, only players who have read the appropriate Recipe Book can reassemble or upgrade it. Players without this knowledge should never remove any gun parts from the crafting grid, unless they intend to permanently dismantle the weapon.
Forging[edit | edit source]
Scrapping[edit | edit source]
A 44 Magnum can be scrapped into 10 units of Scrap Iron.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- It is possible to fire a 44 Magnum quickly enough to make the second shot fire as the gun recoils from the first shot, the second bullet will be shot up into the air.
- The model used in the game closely resembles the Smith & Wesson Model 29 as made famous by actor Clint Eastwood in the 1971 movie Dirty Harry.
- Revolvers tend to make their appearances in many television programs, films, and video games of the zombie survival genre. AMC's The Walking Dead popularized this trend, as the main protagonist's preferred weapon of choice is a Colt Python, and it is possible that said trend influenced the creation of the 44 Magnum in 7 Days To Die.
