A continuation of the classic revolver, it has a generous one-hit kill headshot range. It can mount a 4X scope and can fire armor piercing rounds.
While reloading the weapon, unfired rounds fall out of the cylinder and are saved for later; spent rounds are ejected via push rod, and a speedloader is used to insert fresh cartridges. Because of this, empty reloads are actually faster than tactical reloads, contrary to most other weapons in the game.
The M44's hammer is visible cocked upon first drawing the weapon and after each shot. Like the bolt-action sniper rifles and pump shotguns, this animation cannot be canceled by swapping weapons. Upon firing the last shot with no reserve ammo, the hammer will remain down until more ammo is obtained.
