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.
    • The knockback works in tandem with Punch Through mods, making a Boltor Prime with Mod TT 20px.pngShred or Mod TT 20px.pngMetal Auger quite effective when fired against lines of enemies as it both punches through them and knocks any killed enemies back into the line.

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.
    • A possible explanation is the manufacturing faction. The Boltor is a Tenno produced weapon, like, for example, the Braton.png Braton.
  • The Boltor Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
