Baza Prime is the primed variant of the Baza silenced submachine gun, possessing slightly higher critical chance, status chance, and magazine size, slightly faster reload speed, and longer damage falloff range. The prime's increased magazine and faster reload work to mitigate the normal counterpart's weaknesses of constant downtime from frequent reloading, while the longer damage falloff range gives it much more effective range. Baza Prime was released alongside Ivara Prime and Aksomati Prime.

- 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 Argon Scope.
- Its lower status chance compared to some other automatic rifles can be alleviated with the Hunter Munitions mod, allowing the weapon to spread Slash procs rapidly to enemies, which helps the weapon a lot versus heavy armor.
- Its silenced nature makes it synergize well with Ivara, as firing the weapon will not interrupt her 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.
