The Deagle .50 is a .50 caliber variant of the Deagle .44 Pistol. It was classified as a Revolver and was exclusive to the Phantom Forces Community Testing Environment (CTE). It was unlocked by default.
The Desert Eagle, with its long-standing history of being a powerful pistol, just didn't seem to be powerful enough - so with the Mark VII revision of the pistol, the Deagle was offered with the wrist-shattering .50 Action Express round. This pistol chambers the largest single centerfire handgun round for a magazine fed pistol. Since .50 AE shares a rim diameter with .44 Magnum, all that is needed to convert any Deagle shooting a .44 Magnum round is a barrel and a magazine replacement.
The latest Desert Eagle. the Mark XIX, still offers a .50 AE option out of the factory.
The Deagle 50 plays almost exactly like a standard Deagle, except far more punishing if the shooter misses. It's equally punishing to anyone on the receiving end, easily capable of headshots at range.
Usage & Tactics
The Deagle is capable of instantly killing anyone within close quarters or at range, so long as it's aimed for the head. Just remember that if a shot misses, there's very little chance that ammunition is going to be available to pad out the mistake.
The user should use it like a pocket sniper rifle.
Pro & Cons
- 1SK in the head at CQC.
- High damage.
- High recoil - especially when spammed.
- Low ammunition reserve for a semi-auto pistol.
- Lower magazine size for a pistol.
- The Deagle .50 is gas operated, more akin to modern rifles than pistols.
- The Deagle .50 uses the .50 Action Express round, one of the strongest pistol calibres in the world.
- The Deagle .50 is incorrectly classified as a revolver in the CTE.
- This was also the case for the Deagle .44.
- This appeared to be a move towards making the Revolver category a "Magnum" category, based on the calibers of all pistols within the category.
