This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.



  • Tied with BazaPrime Baza Prime for the fourth lowest base damage of all rifles, after PrismaGrakata Prisma Grakata, U10DesignCouncilTennoAR Soma/PrimeSoma Soma Prime, and GrineerAssaultRifle Grakata; very reliant on its good critical damage potential.
  • Low status chance.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 22m to 34m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Poor ammo economy.
  • Fairly low magazine size in contrast to its high fire rate.
  • Low zoom when aiming can make ranged shooting more difficult.


  • Baza, compared to Baza Prime:
    • Lower critical chance (26% vs. 28%)
    • Lower status chance (10% vs. 14%)
    • Shorter range before damage falloff starts (22m vs. 30m)
    • Shorter range before damage falloff ends (34m vs. 60m)
    • Smaller magazine (40 rounds vs. 60 rounds)
    • Slower reload speed (1.4 s vs. 1.1 s)
    • Lower Mastery Rank required (7 vs. 10)
    • Higher disposition (1.05 vs. 0.95)

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • 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 20pxArgon Scope.


  • 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 20pxArgon Scope.
  • Its lower status chance compared to some other automatic rifles can be alleviated with the Mod TT 20pxHunter Munitions mod, allowing the weapon to spread Slash b Slash procs rapidly to enemies, which helps the weapon a lot versus heavy armor.
  • Its silenced nature makes it synergize well with IvaraIcon272 Ivara, as firing the weapon will not interrupt her Prowl130xDark 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.


  • 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 (release with the Cassowar).
