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 or crafted. This weapon requires the .44 Magnum Bullet and will hold six cartridges. 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.
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, 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 its 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.
