The Magma is a legendary sniper rifle manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Liquid hot. – Always incendiary. Increased splash damage and elemental chance.

Usage & Description

The Magma should be used from long range in typical Sniper Rifle fashion. However, it's worth noting that while the Magma is strong enough on its own to let the fire damage it produces take second priority, if the Magma is fired at tightly packed groups of enemies the fire will spread to other targets in close proximity to the primary target. The Magma's skin sports a charred appearance.


  • The fire cloud inflicts 80% of listed weapon damage, and is affected by skills that boost grenade damage.
  • Occasionally the incendiary DoT glitches, inflicting only one point of damage per DoT tick.


On some bladed variants, the blade takes on a more purple tone compared to other blades on other sniper rifles, referring to obsidian, a sharp glass formed in volcanoes. All variants also have this purple tone in the details of the weapon.
