The official MAG-7 Description states:
“The CT-exclusive Mag-7 delivers a devastating amount of damage at close range. Its rapid magazine-style reloads make it a great tactical choice.”
The MAG-7 is a pump-action shotgun featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and is exclusive to the Counter-Terrorists. The counterpart of this weapon is the Terrorist’s Sawed-Off.
The MAG-7 is a South African shotgun manufactured by Techno Arms PTY since 1995. It is unique for having a relatively compact shape for a shotgun and fires a 60mm 12 gauge shell, which is rather difficult to obtain in countries like the United States.

It inflicts very high damage and is very deadly in close range. It is somewhat more accurate than the other shotguns, making it a better choice for combat at mid-close range; at a distance where a Novawould fail to kill on a body shot, the MAG-7 would. This weapon is one of the most used and most popular shotguns in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive due to its combination of cost and effectiveness. However, it has a low rate of fire and cannot be fired while reloading. To make up for that, it has a magazine. Therefore, each shot does not have to be reloaded individually, unlike the other shotguns.
Like other shotguns, it has a 3× kill award ($900) for neutralizing an enemy target and the player can carry 32 shells in reserve.
When held, the player’s movement speed is 225 units per second, meaning a user will suffer moderate speed reduction.
