About this creation
Bungie's 1994 game Marathon was one of the finest early FPS games of the 90s, and an interesting and engaging story. Presented here is the .44 Magnum Mega Class, the game's pistol.


The .44 MMC is shaped like the revolver it's named after, but with a great brown thing hanging under the barrel, and a magazine feed system. Without a slide or any visiable means of ejecting shells, I have no idea how this gun is meant to work. Thankfully, Robert McLees joined Bungie by the time they were making Halo, so those guns make some sense.


The gun is reasonably comfortable to hold, and has much better balance than I expected, for all that front-end bulk. In game, your character holds it one-handed, and eventually wields two at once, firing accurately while moving at a full sprint. The perks of being a Battleroid, I suppose...


The scope is off-set like that in game, and the second pistol you find has the scope off-set in the opposite direction.


I actually prefer the gun without the scope. It gives the gun a more streamlined look, and the result is a beefier and more rugged looking handgun. I thought the brown might turn out to be a mistake (shots in game are hard to use for reference - the body of the gun is black but it has brown patterns like this), but it suits the grungy, industrial look of the levels in Marathon .


I have no idea why it looks like a revolver but feeds from a magazine. Still, it at least gives the weapon a distinctive look that its Marathon 2 successor lacked.

4th Wall:
I don't expect many people to know this one, but here's hoping it garners some interest.

Marathon is a fantastic game! Glad you like the MMC. Go play the game, they're all still free, and Aleph One recently got some nice quality of life updates.

Thanks! It's pretty fun to play with - comfortable to hold and sturdy enough to wave around. I might look at making instructions at some point

Quoting Duck Paté Looks really cool! Never heard of the game though
Not surprised. But for Marathon, there would be no Halo, no Destiny, and probably no console online multiplayer. The games are all available for free (legal) download, and will run on basically anything. If you're into retro games, they're worth a try.
