The Killer7 is a semi-automatic Magnum featured in Resident Evil 4. It is second most powerful magnum in the game besides the Handcannon.

GameplayEdit

This weapon can be purchased in the maingame for 77,700₧ from the Merchant. It is available after you meet the merchant at The Island for the first time during Chapter 5-1. The Killer7 takes up 8 spaces (4x2) in the inventory and uses the scarce Magnum Ammo.

The Killer7's default firepower is 25.0, which gives players an already powerful weapon that requires fewer upgrades.

The gun's main attribute is it's good aiming stability; enabling players to target faster, and makes long range shooting much easier.

A fully upgraded Killer7 has a firepower of 35.0, a reload speed of 0.93, and a capacity of 14 rounds. It is one of the few weapons in Resident Evil 4 without an exclusive upgrade.

This gun is a cheaper alternative to having a powerful magnum rather than using 455,000 pesetas to fully upgrade the Broken Butterfly, which has a base firepower of 13.0 but can also be acquired for free.

The main differences between the two magnums is that the Broken Butterfly is acquired earlier and offers sheer firepower at 50.0 with the exclusive upgrade; while the Killer7 has a faster reload, a bigger capacity, and better aiming stability.

The Killer7 appears in the Mercenaries minigame in Albert Wesker's load-out. It has a Firepower of 30.0, a Reload Speed of 1.53 and a Capacity of 10.

CommentsEdit

  • Examine Description:

"A very stable yet powerful .45 magnum."

StrategyEdit

The Killer7 is an excellent weapon for taking on the tougher enemies and mini-bosses as the ammunition becomes more common towards the end of the game.

In the Mercenaries, Wesker with the Killer7 can easily dispatch bosses like Giant Chainsaw Man, the Chainsaw Sister, and the Garradors.

Further NotesEdit

  • The name "Killer7" is a reference to the then-upcoming cult-classic of the same name, which Shinji Mikami produced. The character Kaede Smith has an AMT Hardballer that looks similar to the Killer7 magnum.
  • Also note that the "Killer7" engraving on the magnum's slide is exactly the same as the Killer7 game's logo.
  • The Magnum held by Wesker in the Mercenaries game menu has a different finish than the in-game model, and also has tan-colored grips.
