Cartridge versus Magazine[edit]

The fact that the gun uses a single cylindrical cartridge is reminiscent of the Ronon Dex's Particle Magnum pistol used in Stargate Atlantis, which also uses a single cylindrical cartridge. The only difference is that the Particle magnum fires energy bolts, the Duke MK.44 fires projectiles.

Just so you know, the magazine is what the cartridge or cartridges goes into. That's why I felt this is a valid trivia. I thought it interesting to note how similar it was to another weapon I knew of, that every Stargate fan knew of. So, please, keep it where it is. It is worth noting. --Xamikaze330 (talk) 10:12, 20 July 2013 (EDT)Xamikaze330

I looked at the Particle Magnum, and it looks only very vaguely like the Duke MK.44, mainly because they both have a revolving magazine. Aside from that, I don't see any similarities. For instance, the magazine of the Particle Magnum is sleek and smooth, while the magazine of the Duke is not. PerseusSpartacus (talk) 15:25, 14 September 2013 (EDT)

Y'know, I've also seen "revolvers" that have removable magazines in place of cylinders in other stories as well. Namely the Majestic in Crysis 2. If we can find two or three examples of this we probably can write off that trivia as being not unique enough to be notable. Always use the DMR.

I beg to differ. I did a little research, and what I found was just this: The Majestic Revolver has six separate chambers for six separate cartridges, and thus is in no way similar to the Particle Magnum or the Duke MK.44. Both the Duke MK.44 and the Particle Magnum uses one single cylindrical cartridge, and therefore are both unique. I say this bit of trivia should be re-inserted into the article. --Xamikaze330 (talk) 17:32, 3 March 2014 (EST)Xamikaze330

Finally canon weapon in Forsaken![edit]

According to Destiny Tracker Database, the Duke MK. 44 is finally available to use in-game. No idea how to add this though. I saw a post on the Facebook group page for Bungie's Destiny 2: The Community, and I noticed that a previously-cut weapon has been made canon and officially available. Anyway, wanted to share this new information, which unfortunately is limited, as I myself do not have it and therefore have no idea how to obtain. But there ya go! --Shazamikaze (talk) 15:37, 6 September 2018 (EDT)Shazamikaze
