One of the finest examples of Tenno craftsmanship, the Boar Prime offers a higher Fire Rate, Magazine Capacity and a much higher per-shot damage.

The Boar Prime is the Prime version of the Boar Boar, featuring higher damage, critical chance, critical damage, status chance, and fire rate, but retains its ineffectiveness in mid-long engagements.

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact damage.



  • Low Puncture b Puncture damage and Slash b Slash damage – less effective against armor and health.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 30% from 18m to 25m target distance (distances are affected by projectile flight speed).
  • Before 100% status chance, the listed status chance is the base chance per shot that at least one pellet will proc a status; the actual base status chance per pellet is ~4.36%.
  • Very slow reload speed.
  • Ammo inefficient.
  • Strong recoil, although manageable. 


  • Boar Prime, compared to Boar:
    • Higher base damage (320.0 vs. 176.0)
      • Higher Impact b Impact damage (208.0 vs. 96.8)
      • Higher Puncture b Puncture damage (48.0 vs. 26.4)
      • Higher Slash b Slash damage (64.0 vs. 52.8)
    • Higher critical chance (15% vs. 10%)
    • Higher critical multiplier (2x vs. 1.5x)
    • Higher status chance (30% vs. 20%)
    • Higher fire rate (4.67 rounds/sec vs. 4.17 rounds/sec)
    • Longer range before damage falloff starts (18m vs. 15m)
    • Larger max damage reduction due to falloff (70% vs. 50%)
    • Slower reload speed (2.75 s vs. 2.7 s)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (11 vs. 2)

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • It is possible to reach 100% status chance with the Boar Prime before the use of multishot mods (Which will result in a real 100% status chance per pellet).
  • The original counterpart, the Boar 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.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 13.29 Impact b Impact3.07 Puncture b Puncture and 4.09 Slash b Slash.
  • Along with various other shotguns, the Boar Prime's stats were increased with Update 17.0, however several aspects were nerfed, specifically reload speed, fire rate, and status chance.



  • It was released in Update 10.0, along with the Mag Prime and SwordPrime 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.


  • Boar Prime Colour Customization


  • On June 29, 2015, it was announced that the Boar Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on July 7, 2015. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons would remain as is.
