Loose explosive glass slugs that tear through enemies with Gara's signature shotgun, presented here in its spectacular Prime form.

Astilla Prime is the primed variant of GlassShotgun.png Astilla, acting as a direct upgrade. Astilla Prime was released alongside GaraPrimeIcon.png Gara Prime and VolnusPrime-Arsenal.webp Volnus Prime.

Characteristics[]

This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.

Advantages:

  • High DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash and DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage – effective against health and shields.
  • High critical chance.
  • Very high status chance.

    • Explosion does not need direct line of sight to deal damage and will penetrate walls.
  • Tied with GlassShotgun.png Astilla for the highest accuracy of all shotguns.
  • Innate two Madurai Pol.svg and one Naramon Pol.svg polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Low DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage – less effective against armor.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 30m to 60m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Fewer status counts due to firing a single projectile instead of multiple pellets.
  • Explosion inflicts self-stagger.

Notes[]

  • As a Signature Weapon, Astilla Prime gains a bonus effect with GaraIcon272.png Gara or GaraPrimeIcon.png Gara Prime, gaining an additional 80 reserve ammo, for a total of 200.
  • Similar to its standard counterpart, because of the weapon's firing mechanics, the Astilla Prime can be practically treated as a mid-ranged assault rifle that uses shotgun mods. But due to the explosive effects of its slugs, the gun is deceptively effective at crowd control.
