Overview




Far Cry 3 Far Cry 4


Far Cry 5




The .44 Magnum returns in Far Cry 5 in several variants. It retains the break-action, six-shot style, but with the extended barrels being split into the .44 Magnum and .44 Magnum L.

“A powerful handgun that is perfect for close quarters self defense.”
In-Game Description
Far Cry 5


The snub-nose standard variant, the .44 Magnum can be purchased from shops, or found on the bodies of some NPCs.

It can be fitted with several optical sights, and several skins are available for it.

Unlike the long-barrel variants, it has only 5 points in the range stats, but makes up for this by having 8 in the handling stats.

The full-length barrel variant, the .44 Magnum L can be purchased from shops for $1,325.

Like the snub, it can be fitted with several optical sights, and several skins are available for it.

In-Game Description
Far Cry 5


A long-barrel variant in a stainless-steel and ivory theme, the .44 Magnum Steel & Ivory is unlocked via ownership of the Deluxe Edition DLC.

“This .44 MAGNUM has been making zombies, punks, and zombie punks "feel lucky" for decades.”
In-Game Description
Far Cry 5

Added as a reward for Dead Living Zombies Score Attack mode, the O'Bannon Hand Cannon is visually modeled after the .44 Magnum "Sixer", complete with muzzle brake. However, the gun uses the base texture of the .44 Magnum, with the addition of the glowing zombie ooze, similar to the Boom On a Stick or Shovel of the Dead.

TriviaEdit

  • The .44 Magnum variants in Far Cry 5 are mostly based on the Smith & Wesson Model 629.[2]
  • The item description of the "Long" and "Cannon" variants make an unsubtle reference to Clint Eastwood's titular character in the Dirty Harry films.
    • The Cannon variant: The description mentions how the Cannon can get the player out of "dirty and/or hairy situations. [emphasis added]", with the word "hairy" being used both as informal slang for 'difficult' or 'troublesome', and as a play on the name "Harry".
    • The Long variant: this gun's in-game description makes a blatant reference to the iconic scene where Inspector Harold Francis "Dirty Harry" Callahan tells a criminal that he lost track of whether he (Callahan) fired five shots or the full six during a preceding shootout, before asking him, "Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" to try and make a grab for his discarded shotgun.[3]
    • The Cannon's Prestige skin is named, "The Empire State", which could potentially be a reference to an early version of the Dirty Harry script, which took place in New York City, where the colloquialism for New York is the Empire State.[4]
    • The O'Bannon Hand Cannon's description is a reference to a famous quote by Callahan: "Now you need to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?". Well...DO YA, PUNK?!".
  • At launch, the .44 Magnum variants in Far Cry 5 had the same stats across the board, with the snub being the same as the long-barrel styles.[5]
    • This was changed in patch v1.5.0 which reduced the snub-nose's Range to five, but increased the Handling to eight.[6]
  • The "Sixer" variant of the .44 Magnum in Far Cry 5 has an error with the texture when applying and previewing mods, as it will remove the unique silver and chrome appearance and replace it with the texture map of the normal .44 and .44 Long.[7]
  • The Marksman Scope for the .44 uses the texture from the Steel & Ivory variant, and does not have a substitute for the other variants.[8]
  • The Steel & Ivory variant shows an unusable mod slot in the mod list tab of Far Cry 5.
    • It is unknown if it is a leftover code snippet, or if magazine upgrades were originally planned for the .44 Magnum revolvers, as it is the only variant of the .44 with the mod slot.
  • In Far Cry 5 title update six, a bug was introduced that removed all DLC bonus weapons, including the Steel and Ivory variant of the .44 Magnum to disappear from the game after respawning or fast traveling. Exiting the story mode and reloading it would fix the issue until the next time the player died or fast traveled.[9]
    • This was fixed a few weeks later in Title Update 7.[10]
  • The .44 Magnum appears frequently on Viet Cong bodies and as a lootable item in the Hours of Darkness expansion. A .44 Magnum L can be found to the Southeast of the helicopter crash site, a stone's throw from the starting area in a decrepit hut along with a note.
  • The O'Bannon Hand Cannon continues the trend of Dirty Harry references.
