Posted in far cry 5

The Magnopulser is one of the few secret weapons in Far Cry 5 but unlike other special weapons it really is pure science fiction. In this guide you'll learn exactly how to unlock this alien-like weapon and enjoy some anti-gravity fun!

Looking back at Far Cry 4, there were a handful of highly sought after weapons too, including the flamethrower, elephant gun, and a great list of overpowered Signature weapons. At its core, Far Cry 5 also contains an extensive range of weapons, including everything from throwing knives and slingshots to the hunter bow and heavy rocket launchers, There are even stationary mortars you can use and many throwables like C4, molotov cocktails, grenades and smoke grenades.

One particular class of weaponry, known as Specials, contains a small but highly sought after arsenal. Special weapons in Far Cry 5 include the Compound Bow, Flamethrower, Recurve Bow, Slingshot and Magnopulser.

What Does the Magnopulser Do

Of all of the Special weapons there's one which really rules them all! Known as the Magnopulser, this sci-fi weapon alters gravity, allowing you to fling enemies out of the way with a powerful gravitational force. Think of the Fallout universe and you'll be much closer to the reality of this weapon.

With a solid black coating and a circular appearance, the Magnopulser isn't particularly large nor does it appear to be heavy. It shines with a bright yellow glow when charged, before unleashing it's powerful blast directly in front of the player.

If any of you have played Treyarch's Call of Duty zombies mode you'll be familiar with the Thunder Gun. This weapon was capable of flinging groups of zombies out of the way with a powerful air blast. The Magnopulser behaves in a very similar manner, pushing enemies a short distance and even tossing them off open top vehicles.
