Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Weapon's spread cone can be shrunken by zooming in.
  • Mod TT 20pxQuickdraw or Mod TT 20pxStunning Speed is a must to compensate the slow reload speed of the Akbronco Prime, in order to maintain a decent DPS.
  • Using a maxed Mod TT 20pxSeeker mod is recommended to upgrade its crowd controlling capability.
  • Can reach 100% status, allowing every pellet to proc a status effect, making it an excellent weapon to spread status effects on crowds, like radiation to confuse enemies or corrosive to reduce armor.


  • The damage is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values; the actual damage per pellet is 40 Impact b Impact, 5 Puncture b Puncture and 5 Slash b Slash.
  • Like many of the older weapons, during a reload the Akbronco Prime's clip will be reloaded before the reload animation is actually finished; if the reload is almost finished, the animation can be interrupted (by player or by enemy) and the weapon will still be reloaded. The point where the clip is reloaded occurs about 3/4's of the way through the animation.


  • The Akbronco Prime is the first primed dual secondary.
  • Unlike most segregated akimbo secondaries, the Akbronco Prime can be crafted without an Orokin Cell, and is instead replaced by an Orokin link of some kind.
    • 20 Orokin Cells are needed for crafting 2 Bronco Primes, however.
  • The Akbronco Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
