The MK1-Paris is the standard issue bow for all Tenno.
The MK1-Paris is one of two starting Primary weapons available to new Tenno, which can be picked up during the Vor's Prize tutorial prologue. This weapon is best for new players who desire a stealthy approach to ranged attacks.
See the user build section for builds using this weapon.
The MK-1 Paris is a slightly weaker version of the standard Paris, with less overall damage. It handles identically otherwise. However its charge time is half that of Paris and it has a very minuscule 0.1 second faster reload.
Enemies will notice missed arrows but hit arrows are silent.
Can be drawn while using a zipline, but not wall running, or sliding down a wall.
If your Paris is drawn, and you initiate a wall run, you can still fire while on the wall, but not draw the string back. (possible bug?)
Always aim for the head.
Stay in cover to charge.
Charging can be cancelled without releasing the arrow using the reload button (Press reload button while holding the left mouse).
All "charge weapons" (except Angstrum) are now capable of holding their charge during a sprint, and as long as the user starts the charge, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting. This allows for more mobility to the user such as charging their weapon in cover, then run into the room and to unleash their first shot at first sight at the enemy immediately.
Using elevators and opening co-op doors also does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will.
Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.
The Paris is the only bow that does not have a tension spring, as the arrow is held in place and launched by magnetic induction rather than physical force.
As of Update 7.8, Headshots will not be counted at the end of missions, when using the Paris.
After charging an arrow and firing it while zooming, the next arrow you fire will not be drawn from the quiver, and instead the Paris and your hand will jerk very slightly. The next shot will show the reloading animation correctly.
On Xbox One, entering a mission by dropping from the liset shows the arrow stuck to the Tenno's hand. The same can sometimes be said when extracting.
