Are you looking for the best GS Magna loadout for Warzone 2.0? Then rest assured, as we’ll show you the perfect loadout with the optimal setup for dominating the terrains of Al Mazrah.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 73 weapons in MW2, also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 8 of them are Handguns. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for Sniper Rifles and Assault Rifles. However, for close-range engagements, SMGs and Hangunds reign supreme. The new GS Magna is an excellent choice from the Handgun class for its versatility and efficiency in close-range gunfights.

If the X13 Auto is suitable for mobility and the Basilisk’s strength is in versatility, this Handgun is built for raw power. This weapon uses the same cartridge and most attachments as the semi-automatic .50 GS, including the ability to go akimbo and pulverize enemies at close-range.

How to unlock the GS Magna in Warzone 2.0

The GS Magna can be unlocked by completing the following challenge in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2.0:

  • Get 30 Headshots with the .50 GS.

However, that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will also be unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players will have to level up their rank with the GS Magna as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up GS Magna, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when the gun is equipped. While the GS Magna will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the GS Magna if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for GS Magna Loadout


  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Semtex

Stim is a widely used tactical capable of providing instant heals, which can be life-saving in clutch situations. On the other hand, semtex is an excellent lethal that can serve as a breaching impact and flush out other players from cover.

Perk Package – Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk -1: Overkill
  • Base Perk -2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

The weapon specialist package is excellent for calm and calculated players. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players a stronger projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, for the bonus perk, players can use Spotter, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.

All the latest GS Magna Buffs and Nerfs

The GS Magna did not receive any buffs or nerfs, as it has been recently added to the game. The current state of the weapon is balanced, according to many players within the CoD community. If the situation arises, the gun might get more tweaks in future updates to make it more balanced.

All the Handguns from Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 are different. They all excel in their fields depending on the build. Furthermore, the exact placement of the weapon in the current meta can be determined in the coming weeks as more players get their hands on the gun.

Other Alternatives to the GS Magna in the Current Meta

Other alternatives to the GS Magna are the FTAC Siege (Handgun), X13 Auto (Handgun), and .50 GS (Handgun). The .50 GS is one of the most powerful handguns in Warzone 2.0’s current meta. As time progresses, more weapons will gain a stronger position in the meta.
