Notes[]

Tips[]

  • 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 Shred12?cb=20190608095452 Shred or Metal Auger12?cb=20190608095452 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.

Trivia[]

  • 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 BratonBraton.png Braton.
  • The Boltor Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13 (2015-02-05).
