The Magstorm is an electromagnetic railgun that was first seen during the Starfield Direct showcase of June 2023. Unlike the Magpulse or Magshot, the Magstorm appears to do very little damage with only 9 points per shot. However, its name and low damage implies that this is a full-automatic weapon, making it far deadlier than first meets the eye.

Fire rate: 400

The MagStorm has a baseline fire rate of 400, though the speed at which you reload will ultimately determine how close you can get to this rate of fire. Accuracy determines the spread of your gun, with lower accuracy weapons having more spread than others. Some ammunition and magazine weapon mods can drastically alter the rate of fire, accuracy and effective range of any weapon, so it’s worth experimenting with the MagStorm weapon mods to make the Heavy weapon better fit your playstyle.

Without modification, MagStorm comes with 2 mod slots.
