The GS Magna is one of the new weapons that was added to MW2 and Warzone 2 as part of the Season 3 Reloaded update.

The GS Magna is a pistol that boasts a ton of power and is sure to deal devastating blows to the enemy operators. This pistol is a fully automatic Desert Eagle with a high fire rate that is capable of immense damage but it does pack high recoil.

It is certainly worth adding to your arsenal and you will need to know how to unlock this new pistol.

All Methods to Unlock GS Magna

To unlock the GS Magna in MW2 & Warzone 2:

  • Get 30 headshot kills with the .50 GS
  • Buy it as part of a Store Bundle at a later date
  • Extract it from DMZ

The headshot method is the best way to complete this objective as it is free. We recommend loading into a small sized map, like Shipment or Shoothouse, as there will be more chances for gunfights.

Alternatively, if you do not own MW2, we suggest trying to complete this challenge in Plunder. This mode is a respawn game mode meaning you will have more chances to get headshot kills.

Although, the developers have just confirmed that Plunder will not always be part of the playlists. Make sure you take advantage when this mode is available in Warzone 2.

However, if you do not want to complete any challenges, this weapon will be available from a COD bundle at a later time.

Best Ways to Get Headshots With .50 GS

To increase your chances of getting headshots, you can use an optic. Sights such as the Red Dot will improve your accuracy, making aiming for the head that much easier.

We also suggest adding any attachments that can increase the fire rate. This will enhance your ability to secure each kill.

The Magna is not the only new automatic pistol in MW2 & Warzone 2, check out how to unlock the FTAC Siege. This pistol is capable of keeping up with the primary SMGs.
