Notes[]

  • The weapon's firing sounds increases in pitch when 15 or fewer rounds are remaining in the magazine, indicating that the weapon's magazine is almost empty.
  • The weapon has minimal zoom when aiming, helpful for mods that add bonuses while aiming like Mod TT 20px.png Argon Scope.

Tips[]

  • The Baza's high accuracy allows it to land headshots consistently compared to other automatic weapons, which along with its good critical hit chance makes it ideal for builds using Mod TT 20px.png Argon Scope.
  • Its lower status chance compared to some other automatic rifles can be alleviated with the Mod TT 20px.png Hunter Munitions mod, allowing the weapon to spread DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash procs rapidly to enemies, which helps the weapon a lot versus heavy armor.
  • Its silenced nature makes it synergize well with IvaraIcon272.png Ivara, as firing the weapon will not interrupt her Prowl130xDark.png Prowl ability.
  • Since the Baza has very high accuracy, it can use Heavy Caliber with almost no drawback and increasing the weapon's overall damage output.


Trivia[]

  • The Baza are a genus of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family.
  • Physically, the weapon bears a strong resemblance to the real-life PP-19 Bizon SMG, due to Baza's underbarrel, horizontal magazine, and its overall appearance.
    • The name Baza may be derived from the PP-19's nickname, Bizon.
  • The name Baza (shortening of "Barry") is strongly believe to be derived from a conversation had at PAX Aus between DE staff and fans, where "Australian Names" were discussed. It was claimed that "Baza" may be the "most Australian name". There was also discussion about many great names from native flora and fauna (released with the Cassowar.png Cassowar).
  • Tied with U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma/PrimeSoma.png Soma Prime, TnoPrmryXbow.png Attica, and BazaPrime.png Baza Prime for the highest critical multiplier of all fully automatic rifles.
  • Second fastest reload speed of all fully automatic rifles, behind BazaPrime.png Baza Prime.
  • Tied with BazaPrime.png Baza Prime for the third fastest fire rate of all fully automatic rifles, behind GrineerAssaultRifle.png Grakata and PrismaGrakata.png Prisma Grakata.
  • Tied with BazaPrime.png Baza Prime for the fourth lowest base damage of all fully automatic rifles, after PrismaGrakata.png Prisma Grakata, U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma/PrimeSoma.png Soma Prime, and GrineerAssaultRifle.png Grakata; very reliant on its high critical damage potential.
