Vaultings[edit | edit source]
- On February 9th, 2016, it was announced that Boltor Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on February 16, 2016. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
- Boltor Prime along with Ankyros Prime, Boar Prime, Dakra Prime, Mag Prime, and Rhino Prime were unvaulted on June 27, 2017 to August 1, 2017.
- Boltor Prime, along with Ankyros Prime, Hikou Prime, Scindo Prime, Nyx Prime, and Rhino Prime, was once again unvaulted on July 24, 2018 to September 25, 2018. It resurfaced again together with the same line-up from July 16th, 2019 to September 3rd, 2019.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The lack of Slash damage means that the mods Sawtooth Clip and Fanged Fusillade will have no effect on this weapon.
- The innate polarity matches Primed Cryo Rounds.
- Due to its above average status chance, users will often use Rime Rounds instead of Cryo Rounds to make Viral or Magnetic damage, which requires a polarity.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Boltor Prime has a knockback effect on kill that can be used instead of Punch Through so the mod slot can be used for something else.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Boltor Prime is the sixth primed Primary weapon ever released.
- Compared to previous Prime weapons, the Boltor and the Boltor Prime have a much closer resemblance to each other.
- The Boltor Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
