The .357 Magnum revolver is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

.357 Magnum revolver expanded

The .357 Magnum revolver is a single action, fixed-cylinder revolver. It's highly reliable and fires a powerful round, though its antiquated designs requires it to be loaded one bullet at a time, through a loading gate located next to the cylinder. However, this also allows the weapon to be fired quickly under duress, as opposed to more modern designs, which require the entire cylinder to be emptied before reloading.

Weapons found in the Mojave are somewhat worn, medium-gray. While the action and barrel are constructed of steel or iron, the grip appears to be carved from an antler. Some two hundred years ago this was likely a fine, highly performing weapon, but years of elemental and human abuse have eroded the pistol, leaving it a weathered, though still serviceable revolver.

The iron sights are set low, making it hard to use the weapon at ranges other than close quarters combat. However, the weapon has incredible reliability, cannot jam, and is an improved holdout weapon (can be taken into weapon-free locations with a Sneak of 50 or more). The abundance of .357 Magnum rounds is also an asset.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png The revolver is affected by a standard bug when reloading may cause the reload animation to be twice as long. Unequipping and reequipping the weapon solves the problem.
  • If the pip-boy is activated during the reload animation, and the revolver is unequipped in the Pip-boy, the courier is launched at a high speed forward. This can be exploited by purchasing exactly one bullet (of a given type) and reloading whenever desired.
    • Note: May sometimes cause a high vertical jump, which may be fatal barring a secondary exploit.
