…Highly effective weapon at close range. Fires bolts of high-temperature plasma, accelerated to enormous speeds. Able to fire continuously as it does not have a reload time… – in-game description



Introduction

The Magnum is a close-range (up to 350 meters) light energy weapon.

Strategy

This plasma weapon, due to its accuracy, damage, and continuous fire, makes it a very popular light weapon.

The Magnum seems to be most closely comparable to the Punisher. While they are both popular short-range weapons, the Magnum has several advantages. The Punisher, while having a higher DPS (damage per second) and longer range, suffers from bullet spread, reducing its damage at longer ranges, while the Magnum does the same amount of damage at 100 meters as it does at 350 meters. Also, the Punisher needs to be reloaded, taking 10 seconds.

The Magnum does not have to reload and can fire continuously at two plasmoids per second. Being an energy weapon, it ignores Ancile shielding.

Mounting Options

In earlier leagues it is common to see the Magnum mounted in pairs on Stalkers, and possibly in quads on a Patton. Using this weapon in combination with Tarans and Redeemers works very well, as they share the same range, damage type, and fast projectiles. Griffins and Rhinos can often be seen with a pair of Magnums and Tarans, and they can severely damage robots (even heavy robots) quickly. Lastly, using a trio of Magnums with a Redeemer on a Leo, this makes for an opponent that can deal heavy damage, and take a lot of damage due to the robot's high health pool. A Gl. Patton with quadruple Magnums can deal serious damage towards opponents. This set-up is known as the “Mini Plasma Death Button”, resembling the Plasma Death Button, a Griffin with a pair of Magnums and Tarans.
