- Very high status chance.
- Good ammo efficiency.
- Low Puncture and Slash damage - less effective against armor and health.
- Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 74% from 9m to 18m target distance (distances are affected by projectile flight speed).
- Very low critical chance.
- Before 100% status chance, the listed status chance is the base chance per shot that at least one pellet will proc a status; the actual base status chance per pellet is ~4.97%.
- Low magazine size.
- Wide pellet spread cone makes the weapon ineffective beyond medium range.

- The weapon's spread cone can be shrunk by zooming in.
- It has higher base Impact Damage than the Brakk, making it a good alternative when fighting the Corpus. In total, Bronco Prime deals 280 Impact damage per shot, while the Brakk only deals 90 Impact damage per shot.
- The Bronco Prime's high damage, high spread and high pellet count (with Barrel Diffusion) make it a good crowd thinner and control tool, particularly against the Infested.
- Using Seeker is recommended to upgrade its crowd controlling capability.
- Gunslinger (or Lethal Torrent) and Quickdraw may be valuable due to the low rate of fire and reload speed, to increase the time spent shooting.
- The damage is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet is 40 impact, 5 puncture, and 5 slash.
- The Bronco Prime has a non-static model, the barrel section rotates clockwise when fired and whilst reloading.
- The Bronco Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
