The Magnet Gun is a weapon in Red Faction: Armageddon. This weapon was originally intended for salvage and mining. It uses magnets to rip apart structures, throw enemies, and collect salvage. The Mining Exo has a built-in magnet gun.

The weapon works in two stages. The magnet is fired first, and then the anchor. Whatever the magnet is attached to will be pulled towards the anchor.

The magnet gun was developed by Darius Mason.


  • This Gun is one of the two weapons seen with Darius in cut-scenes, the other being the Red Faction Assault Rifle.
  • In earlier previews of the game, reviewers praised the Magnet Gun. But after the game had released they didn't like it.
