Walker obtains the .44 Magnum in the single player campaign at the start of Chapter 11. Walker picks up the .44 Magnum lying next to Riggs, which only has one round in it. The player can optionally use it to kill Riggs. This, and the second .44 that appears directly outside the mall a short distance from Riggs, are the only times that the .44 Magnum is obtainable by the player in the campaign mode.
It is unlocked at level 29.
- The .44 Magnum is called the Python Elite within the game files.
