Saw that too... was wondering the same. There is already a slow firing high damage pistol in game.
The Magnum. So... yeah.. I got nothing.

Slow firing and sucks. Needs a MUCH higher crit multiplier to make it actually rewarding to use it over just about everything, including BMGs.

Absolutely. It must be for players that have severe arthritis.

hey i like that gun. its a gun i can actually use against volge. unlike bmgs god these things suck so hard ive only gotten them to lvl 3. anyways mine has a single crit bonuse so with pistols at 20 its got over 1000 dmg at x3 crit without figuring in perks and what not i think. falloff sucks just means you have to stay somewhat close to your target, make use of cover. boom dead, boom dead is how it works on average enemies

In the time you've fired two shots, I've fired upto 10 with a wolfhound or already began the reload cycle of a blaster. And with both the enemy is likely already dead.

You should try WolfHounds and Frc Bull Rush'es. You go for crits, well then Wolfhound with syphon.. volge seem so to have once exsisted where the ER ammo crate and a blue weapon now lay. You are a true man that fishes with one of his bare hands while the other holds a Dr. PEPPER.
I tip my hat to you, champ. Magnum is painful for me in comparison to the other pistols.

I use a Northstar Flare at present, but only because it is a one shot grenade pistol which recharges my EGO power 10-15% per reload :D should be a good starting combo for the sword ^~^

Northstars are boss.. especially if they have a nano. Good addition to the Fire of the flare.
Can see how it benifits ya with the ego roll. Hope ya got a fast mag on it.
I personally like extended clips on them. Not sure if I'd use it for Volge encounters.

I have only used it on the volge a few times, but it remains a good heavy hitter between Blur cooldowns where I can abuse the melee stock a bit more xD but I have no magazine slot mod on it just yet, plan to if it holds up after the patch though.

how do you think i got to lvl 20 in pistols? its no fun usein the same gun all the time plus the revolver fits my play style against volge. shoot, hide, shoot, hide. with a wolfhoud im too tempted to empty the entire clip at one time which ends up with me gettin shot more then i need to. anyways like i pointed out they are good for small groups where you have the time to pick your shots and just make the enemy disappear with a single shot. think sniper rifle tactics with a pistol. sure wolfhounds are great but should you really be gettin too attached? you know like everyone was with the saw?

Bull rush 45 with extra mag is so much fun. Get a huge swarm of 99ers or afflicted and kite them while knocking them over with the BR. Makes me laugh so hard.

Well for 1 I didn't know you were at skill level 20 with pistols.
Nor did I know you previously used HOUNDS. I can say that even though
it is a solid pistol, I enjoy using a variety. Vot blasters, Bull Rush, Vbi auto, Northstars.. ect..
While I can appreciate your hide and gun technique against Volge with the Magnum,
it doesn't offer me anything. Sad too, as I was looking forward to it. Then tried it. Pulling the trigger on it
is SOOOO SLOOOOW AND FOREEEEVER TAAAAKING. Like I said earlier.. you're a greater man then I.

Seems we have an agreement on hatred of certain weapon types.

This guy knows. Extended mag is a must. Not to mention 5 or 6, 99'ers all trying to stand up at the same time is hilarious.
If they ever make it that far.

I have a pretty decent legendary assassin bullrush, even picked up a new assassin falloff dmg mod before servers went down.

Pretty sure it doesn't even exsist and/or was a type-o.
At least that is what I've read during this downtime.

hmm I hope you're right. would be hard to be better though, unless crit was ridiculous. even then WH would have fire rate, reload and mag size on it, in theory.

If that were the case.. I assume it would only come in ORANGE.
