Notes[edit | edit source]
- The original counterpart, the Boar, was removed from the market in Update 10.4, making the Boar Prime the first prime weapon to phase out its predecessor.
- The Boar was added back into circulation in Update 17.7, several updates after the Boar Prime was removed from Void drop tables.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Using the Shotgun Scavenger aura, Ammo Case, Squad Ammo Restore, and/or the Shotgun Ammo Mutation mod is highly recommended due to the weapon's high fire rate. It tends to use up ammo quickly, especially when equipped with fire rate mods. Also, using Carrier's Ammo Case can assist with retaining and regaining ammo.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It was released in Update 10.0, along with the Mag Prime and Dakra Prime.
- Its central drum section rotates when firing (not that obvious as it is quite fast) and reloading, making it a non-static model.
- The Boar Prime, along with the Dakra Prime, is specifically mentioned as being a Tenno creation, unlike other Prime items said to be created by the Orokin.
- Prior to an unknown update, Boar Prime's codex description incorrectly stated that it gained an increased magazine size and fire rate at the cost of damage in comparison to regular Boar. This was because the codex description was not updated to reflect the major shotgun buffs in Update 17.
