Magnums (TR1)

Magnums are high caliber pistols, that appear in the Tomb Raider Series. They are a staple of Lara croft's arsenal.

Tomb Raider 1996 Edit

Margnums are like the standard pistols, but better. Much better. You can notice the power just hearing the sound it makes when shooting. They are a great pair of guns that loses only in firepower to the shotgun, but it is faster and you don't have to worry about ammo because it is abundant and you should have a lot of it by the time you reach the Lost Island levels.

Each pistol does 2 damage, double the regular pistols 1 damage. Combined they do 4 damage per shot at the same firing speed as the pistols.

Tomb Raider III Edit

Desert eagle

A single Desert Eagle is available in Tomb Raider III. It is capable of killing, a human enemy in two shots, and armored enemies in three. It has a very slow rate of fire and high recoil.

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation Edit


The Revolver is a very effective weapon, first available in Tomb Raider IV The Last Revelation, making its return in Tomb Raider Chronicles. It is one of the few weapons that can be combined with the Lasersight for manual aiming. The revolver in the games is a generic big-bore revolver with nearly as much firepower and accuracy as the Desert Eagle. Since Lara does not reload in real time, the 6-shot limit is not a problem. Does 21 damage per shot, takes just under twice as long to fire as the Pistols, or half the time it takes to fire the shotgun.

Tomb Raider: Anniversary Edit

Dual 50 Cals

The Magnums return as "Dual 50. Cal Pistols". They function the same as the Magnums from the original game. They are taken taken from Pierre DuPont, before he is killed by the Centaurs, tough they can be acquired in a small cove in Coliseum. After reaching Natla's Mines they can be required in the lava room after using the drill to break through the barricade.
