Here are the details about the MAG 7 on the official website of Free Fire

The MAG-7 Free Fire will be available in both Battle Royale mode and Clash Squad mode. It can be equipped with a Grip and a Stock to make it more stable and accurate.

MAG-7 Free Fire Damage Comparison

Here, we are going to do a damage comparison of the MAG-7 gun in Free Fire vs the M1887, an insanely good shotgun with high range and burst power. We are going to test the damage output of these two weapons in the Training mode on a dummy with a Level 2 helmet and a Level 2 armor in different ranges.

Close Range

In a very close range (1 to 2m), the M1887 completely out damage the MAG-7. The M1887 deals twice more damage than the MAG-7.

The M1887 deal more than 800 damage per second with 2 shots. The 2 shots on the armor cause the dummy to take 180 damage and the armor takes 140 damage. The M1887 will kill a player with 2 shots unless they are really lucky that all the shots hit the armor.

M1887 Free Fire Damage
The M1887 deals 800 damage per second in close range combats, an insane amount of damage

The MAG-7 deals 359 damage per second. After 5 shots, the dummy takes 200 damage and the armor takes 200 damage. We can see that the MAG-7 deal more damage to armor but it doesn't have as much burst power as the M1887.

In the second test, we stand 5 meters away from the dummy. The MAG-7 still manage to get a stable 350 damage per second while the M887 falls off to 600 damage per second. The M1887 still deals more damage per second but it fails to kill the dummy after 2 shots.

At the 5 meters distance, the damage of the M1887 falls off hard and it can't kill the dummy with 2 shots

Meanwhile, the MAG-7 still kills the dummy after 5 shots. Even if it didn't, you still have 3 more shots to finish the job. This makes the MAG-7 a better weapon than the M1887 in mid-range combats.

MAG-7 Free Fire Tips, Tricks, And Strategy

The biggest strength of the MAG-7 gun in Free Fire is that it is more versatile than other shotguns. It has average damage but has a better range and accuracy than other shotguns, especially with attachments. This gives the MAG-7 a better chance against SMGs such as MP40 even if you are a little bit far away.

When fighting against the M1887, it is best to fight it from a safe distance rather than a close distance because the M1887 will totally out damage the MAG-7 in close range. However, at 5 meters or farther, the MAG-7 can totally win with its consistency while it is really hard for the M1887 to kill you in 2 shots.

It will take some time for the MAG-7 to get some skins in the game so it might a little underwhelm to other weapons with skins. However, this is only a matter of time.
