The Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded update brought the new GS Magna Desert Eagle, a deadly Handgun and the ideal Secondary weapon. Here’s the best GS Magna loadout in Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded, complete with the best attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded has arrived, bringing the long-awaited Ranked Play beta, a ton of weapon buffs and nerfs, and even some movement and TTK changes. The mid-season update also added two new Handguns to run as secondaries.

One of these is the GS Magna, a fully-automatic version of the .50 GS which “boasts a thunderous rate of fire and enough power to put an end to anyone foolish enough to cross your path.”

Before you take the new Desert Eagle for a spin, we’ve got the best GS Magna loadout for Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded, along with the ideal attachments and Perks to unlock its full potential.

Best Warzone 2 GS Magna loadout attachments

  • Barrel: SA Tyrant Fifty
  • Muzzle: FTAC Fifty Comp
  • Magazine: 13 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: GS Magna Akimbo
  • Underbarrel: OP-X9 Foregrip

We kick off our best GS Magna loadout in Warzone 2 by equipping Akimbo, allowing you to bring two Desert Eagles at the same time and dish out double the damage. Next is the SA Tyrant Fifty, which offers improved range and bullet velocity, while also keeping some of the Pistol’s recoil in check.

Then, we’ve gone for the FTAC Fifty Comp for even more recoil stability, as the power of the GS Magna sometimes makes it difficult to keep bullets on target. We’ve paired this with the OP-X9 Foregrip for better hipfire accuracy, as the Akimbo attachment removes the ability to ADS.

Finally, the 13 Round Mag will ensure you’ve got enough bullets to burn through multiple enemies at close range before having to reload.

Best Warzone 2 GS Magna Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

The beauty of the GS Magna is that it removes the need to run Overkill, freeing up an extra Perk slot to use both Bomb Squad for reduced damage from explosives and Double Time for faster sprint speeds.

You’ll also want to bring Fast Hands to switch between your primary and secondary weapon as quickly as possible, making sure you always have the right weapon for the job. Last up, Ghost is essential in Warzone 2 for staying off enemy UAVs, despite their nerf in Season 3 Reloaded.

When it comes to Equipment, you can’t go wrong with a Semtex to secure a quick kill, while Stun Grandes disorientate players before you move in to finish them off.

How to unlock GS Magna in Warzone 2

Players can unlock the GS Magna in Warzone 2 by earning 30 headshot kills with the .50 GS. This is no easy task in Warzone 2, but those with access to Modern Warfare 2 will have an easier time completing the challenge in multiplayer.

Simply drop into a few games of Shipment 24/7 or any other close-quarters mode, and you should have no trouble racking up the headshots required.

Best Primary weapon for the GS Magna in Warzone 2

Since the GS Magna has the close-range covered in Warzone 2, we recommended a long-range rifle like the Kastov 762, which is capable of dispatching enemies at a distance.

On the other hand, you could also go for the Cronen Squall, which features a deadly TTK and can switch between full and semi-auto.
