If you’re not a fan of utilizing the Overkill Perk, then you’ll want to explore Season 3 Reloaded‘s GS Magna. The fully automatic Desert Eagle is a force to be reckoned with in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer matches.

  • Barrel: SA Tyrant Fifty
  • Muzzle: Matuzek Crown
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Warrior Grip
  • Rear Grip: EXF Resistance Grip
  • Magazine: 13 Round Mag

The biggest weakness of the GS Magna in Modern Warfare 2 is its astounding recoil. The Desert Eagle is renowned for its excessive recoil and a fully automatic version of the weapon is bound to need recoil-taming attachments like the EXF Resistance Grip and Mazutek Crown.

Meanwhile, the SA Tyrant Fifty provides a major improvement in damage range and bullet velocity, all while increasing the recoil control. The 13 Round Mag will come in handy as the fully automatic GS Magna chews through bullets at a fast rate.

To round out the GS Magna loadout we’ve gone with the Bruen Warrior Grip for further boosts to recoil steadiness and overall stability while firing the weapon.

Meanwhile, we’re opted for Fast Hands, to make that swap between the GS Magna and your Primary weapon as smooth and efficient as possible. Ghost will keep you hidden from pesky enemy UAVs, allowing you to roam the map at your own will.

Dead Silence is the perfect Field Upgrade for GS Magna, as it’ll allow you to get up close and personal where the weapon really excels. If you’re having some trouble clearing a path, your Semtex and Flash Grenade should open up a path.

To unlock the GS Magna in Modern Warfare 2, players must get 30 headshot kills with the .50 GS.

To get this challenge done as quickly as possible we recommend playing on small maps such as Shipment where you’ll have an easier time securing headshots with the Handgun.
