The Evolution of Halo's Magnum in PvP

From Combat Evolved to Halo Infinite PvP, the pistol has changed many times over the years. In this video, we look at the evolution of the iconic Magnum throughout every Halo game in the series.

From Halo: Combat Evolved to Halo Infinite, the Magnum goes through quite the rollercoaster of changes and tweaks. After the Halo Infinite Technical Preview, there is a little more insight on where the newest iteration of the Magnum is heading and how it stands against its predecessors.

Persia also talks about other various factors like the scopeless days of the Magnum in Halo 2 and Halo 3 courtesy of dual-wielding and even how other mechanics in titles such as Halo 4's removal of the descope hindered the Magnum's overall performance.
