Combat Tips[]

The main draw to this weapon is its high damage, high penetration power, and it is a weapon commonly seen on Zombie Modes - its role suits both offensive and defensive use. When using it offensively especially in non-zombie modes, it does help to pay attention to the ammo count. It only has one spare magazine, so make sure the shots count.

In zombie modes, the common tactic to use this weapon is to stun with a few shots (crouching gives better control of its recoil) and then strike with the alt-fire. Care must be taken when using it against light zombies and Sting Fingers with the drill's knockback, it is best to have them backed into a corner then follow it with a killing blow. If not, it is best used as a chokepoint defending weapon.

For the record, the maximum range of its B-mode is 4 meters - on par with Sting Finger's tentacles skill. Keep in mind that latency will affect the Magnum Drill's secondary fire mode and causing you to take a few seconds more to land a hit, so time your swings properly.

It's important to note that a headshot with the alt-fire can deal up to 10,000+ HP damage against zombies with depleted armor, and using Deadly Shot with it can score quite the damage against a horde, best used as a desperation attack. Its drilling mode can damage targets through solid objects too.

For its use in Zombie Scenario, the drill can deal up to 1000 ~ 7000 damage per shot towards zombies, particularly against bosses. The alt-fire deals up to 20,000 ~ 70,000 damage with each swing, making short work of large Juggernauts. Be mindful of using it against Venom Guard, especially in Hard stages.
