Far Cry 5

Making a return in Far Cry 4, the .44 Magnum and the Cannon appear in Kyrat.

“An American-made revolver that packs some serious punch at close range but has limited ammunition capacity.”
In-Game Description
Far Cry 4

The .44 Magnum makes a return in Far Cry 4. It performs similar to its Far Cry 3 counterpart, but is unlocked for purchase much later, after completing the mission Truth & Justice. It costs 60,000 rupees.


“Add an extended barrel and optics to a Magnum and you get this heavy duty sidearm with improved range and accuracy.”
In-Game Description
Far Cry 4

The Cannon also returns as the signature version of the weapon. It is unlocked after completing 5 Hostage Rescue quests. Just like the Far Cry 3 version, it features an extended barrel, optic sight and a custom navy camouflage paint job alongside some significantly improved statistics.

Its high damage and accuracy makes it a good choice for those who like precision shooting when driving and shooting. It also functions as a "pocket sniper", boasting good damage and range, but able to be carried as a sidearm. This makes it useful for players who wish to carry more specialized weapons in their other slots, like shotguns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers.



  • The .44 Magnum in Far Cry 4 is based on the "Stealth Hunter" variant of the Smith & Wesson Model 629.[1]
