The Sharpshooter gets a shiny .44 Magnum revolver - good for dual-wielding for even more stopping power. —Steam store description 

The .44 Magnum is a secondary weapon that can generally be described as being like a cheaper, lighter, weaker Handcannon with a higher rate of fire and a lower clip size. It deals almost as much damage as the handcannon, and like the handcannon, it can penetrate through a specimen and damage the specimen behind it, but unlike the handcannon, it can't hurt a third specimen with one shot. Holding only six rounds and being slow to reload, it deals more damage per clip compared to the 9mm tactical pistol, although it can deal this damage far more quickly. 128 rounds can be held in reserve, and although it may be slower to deal damage than the handcannon, it deals a comparable total damage to the Handcannon if the entire magazine is used. .44 magnums are able to be dual-wielded to double the capacity per reload, but the second one will weigh another two blocks, the ability to use irons sights is lost, and the ammo reserve is not increased.

Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages

  • Cheaper than its counterpart the Handcannon at only £450.
  • Faster rate of fire than both the 9mm and Handcannon.
  • Slightly more accurate that the 9mm and Handcannon, as the ironsights don't obscure the target when aiming unlike the other two.
  • Lighter than the Handcannon at only 2 blocks.
  • Higher total ammo capacity than the Handcannon.
  • Excellent off-perk backup weapon, especially when dual-wielded.

Disadvantages

  • Lowest clip size of any handgun.
  • Lower damage than the Handcannon.
  • Relatively slow reload.
  • Nearly useless on-perk: the price difference is minimal with the Sharpshooter's bonuses, the weight difference is negligible since Sharpshooters will always have at least four blocks when not already carrying a pistol or off-perk weapon, and Sharpshooters will rarely be able to utilize the .44 Magnum's fast rate of fire while still landing their crucial headshots. It is for these reasons that the Handcannon should be considered instead.

Bugs

The .44 Magnum is currently listed as weighing 2 weight blocks in the trader, but cannot be purchased unless 4 are available and, in reality, takes up 4 blocks regardless of whether or not it is dual-wielded. This makes it almost a complete downgrade to the Handcannon, as it was intended to weigh only 2 blocks and therefore be able to fit with more off-perk combinations than the Handcannon.
