The .44 Magnum is a revolver featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. In the campaign it is used by General Shepherd, but is not available for the player except in the mission Museum. .44 Magnum is actually a type of ammunition and not a weapon, but the gun is modelled of an Anaconda.

In multiplayer it does similar damage to the Desert Eagle but has a smaller number of rounds per reload (as a revolver, it does not use magazines and therefore cannot use Extended Mags). Regardless of whether Stopping Power is used, the gun always kill in three hits or less - Stopping Power increases the range at which a two hit kill is possible.

Compared to the Desert Eagle, the .44 Magnum is usually favoured for its higher damage and lower recoil - although when used Akimbo, the Desert Eagles are marginally better because the recoil patterns are then the same and the increase in firepower negates the slightly lower damage.

The .44 Magnum is a popular choice for using with the Tactical Knife and the perks Marathon, Lightweight and Commando. It can only accept three attachments:
