Magnum Best Attachments & Gunsmith Setups Black Ops Cold War

Share It With Your Buddies

The Magnum is the double-action revolver in Black Ops Cold War. It has the highest firepower among the pistols. However, it also has the slowest reload times as each bullet has to be placed into the cylinder.

The Magnum seems to be a 1 shot kill even at close range which was rather disappointing. The pistol, having the highest firepower should be able to take out enemies in 1 shot at close range or at least more consistently.

The Diamatti is a more powerful and reliable choice to run as a secondary. 

Weapon background

The Magnum and its variants have appeared in many Call of Duty titles since World at War. 

Stats

  • Damage: 75
  • Rate of Fire: 180 RPM
  • Recoil: Moderate

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the Magnum in Black Ops Cold War are the 7.2” Task Force barrel, the Serpent Warp, and the Vandal Speed Loader. The 7.2” Task Force barrel adds a host of damage and range buffs including even more bullet velocity. The Vandal Speed loader makes that cylinder reload even faster. The reload times of the Magnum are quite on the slow slide. Finally, the Serpent Wrap shaves 25% off ADS times. 

Best Class Setups

Class 1 – Max Firepower

This gunsmith for the Magnums focuses on getting the most bang from each round. Attach the following onto the Magnum. The Task Force Barrel adds a lot of damage and velocity to the weapon as well as range to boot. This leaves us with a lot more recoil. This is why we need the compensator to balance out the stats. The rest of the attachments are speed-related and necessary for using the Magnum in close range.

Gunsmith:

  • Infantry Compensator
  • 7.2” Task Force
  • Steady Aim Laser
  • Vandal Speed Loader
  • Serpent Wrap

Class 2 – Old Skool BO1 Akimbo Mags

This gunsmith setup brings back memories of the old Black Ops 1 days. Many class setups especially in SND were running Akimbo Magnums. As mentioned above the compensator with the task force barrel is a good combo to balance out accuracy and damage. The laser attachments make your akimbo shots more accurate.

Gunsmith:

  • Infantry Compensator
  • 7.2” Task Force
  • Steady Aim Laser
  • Vandal Speed Loader
  • Dual Wield
