Magnum is a Secondary Pistol weapon that can can be purchased from and sold to Big Al's Gun Shop, where it is the most expensive Secondary weapon item available.
The Magnum was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.
The Magnum has a base fire rate between one to two rounds per turn and can fire six rounds without reloading. It has a stealth rating of 3.8.
The Magnum is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds.
in the early days of the game, the Magnum saw heavy use among players under level 15, as it was the most powerful Secondary weapon at Big Al's after the Desert Eagle and Dual 92G Berettas were moved to Mexico.
In the old Ammo system prior to the Attacking 2.0 update, ammo for the Magnum costed $30 per clip. The icon for the ammo was a large pistol cartridge.
