Trivia

  • This is the second weapon under the Magnum title after Magnum Drill.
  • The muzzle flare is similar to the one CHARGER weapons use when firing. The aesthetics of the plasma missiles are almost identical to Star Chaser SR.
  • The plasma burst's system is similar with BALROG-XI, except they deal more damage, they're spread in a much wider area and colored in blue.
  • In a complete inversion to Red Dragon Cannon, in Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies this weapon has an abnormally high chance of obtaining, despite being released with a x3 chance-up event.
