Fires Orokin designed bolts that are faster and sharper.

The Boltor Prime is the Prime variant of the Boltor.png Boltor rifle, featuring higher damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, status chance, accuracy, fire rate, and slightly faster reload speed.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage.
  • Bolts fired stick to their target, and will fling bodies on kill.
    • The body will damage targets in its path.
    • Corpses can be pinned to terrain.

Advantages over other auto-trigger rifle-type primary weapons:

  • Flung bodies help in dealing with crowds.
  • Low recoil.
  • Third highest damage per shot behind GrnGorgSniperRifle.png Buzlok.
  • Highest status chance.
  • Large magazine.

Disadvantages over other auto-trigger rifle-type primary weapons:

  • Projectiles have travel time with slight arcing.

  • 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.png Shred or Mod TT 20px.png Metal Auger quite effective when fired against lines of enemies as it both punches through them and knocks any killed enemies back into the line.


  • Boltor Prime was released alongside Rhino PrimeIcon272.png Rhino Prime and AnkyrosPrime.png Ankyros Prime.
  • 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 (2015-02-05).
