The rapid-fire classic is the Orokin-engineered definition of silent, pinpoint lethality.

Baza Prime is the primed variant of the Baza.png 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 PrimeIcon272.png Ivara Prime and AksomatiPrime.png Aksomati Prime.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage.



  • Tied with Baza.png Baza 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.
    • Low DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – less effective against health.
    • Ill-suited against Object-based health as it nullifies any critical hits.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 30m to 60m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Poor ammo economy.
  • Low zoom when aiming can make ranged shooting more difficult.


  • Baza Prime, compared to Baza:
    • Higher critical chance (28% vs. 26%)
    • Higher status chance (14% vs. 10%)
    • Longer range before damage falloff starts (30m vs. 22m)
    • Longer range before damage falloff ends (60m vs. 34m)
    • Larger magazine (60 rounds vs. 40 rounds)
    • Larger max ammo capacity (840 rounds vs. 800 rounds)
    • Faster reload speed (1.1 s vs. 1.4 s)
    • Different polarities (VV vs. V)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (10 vs. 7)
    • Lower disposition (0.95 vs. 1.05)

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
