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.png Boar, featuring higher damage, critical chance, critical damage, status chance, and fire rate, but retains its ineffectiveness in mid-long engagements. It was released alongside Mag PrimeIcon272.png Mag Prime and SwordPrime.png Dakra Prime.

Weapon Loadouts[edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The original counterpart, the Boar.png 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]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 27.2

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.

  • (Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 3.75% to 11.25%.

Update 22.12

  • Mastery Rank increased from 2 to 11.

  • Boar Prime returned to the vault.

  • Fixed an issue where having a status chance greater than 100% on the Boar Prime would cause the UI to display “0”.

Hotfix 12.0.2

  • Tweaks to Boar Prime sounds.

Update 11.5

  • You can now search Orokin Derelict Defenses for the Boar Prime Receiver!
