Once thought lost to the ages, attempts to reengineer the Burston Prime never fully replicated this weapon's power and agility.

The Burston Prime is the Prime variant and direct upgrade of the Burston.png Burston, sporting higher stats across the board including fire rate, damage, status, and critical potential.

Characteristics[]

This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Third lowest base damage per bullet of all burst-fire rifles, after InfQuantaRifle.png Paracyst and Burston.png Burston/Hind.png Hind/KuvaHind.png Kuva Hind.
  • Below average critical multiplier.
  • Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.
  • Poor ammo efficiency.

Tips[]

  • The Burston Prime has a fast burst, making it decent in long-range combat.
  • The Burston has arguably better ammo efficiency than the U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma or U10InfPrimary.png Synapse due to its burst-fire nature.
  • Fire rate mods (Mod TT 20px.png Speed Trigger, Mod TT 20px.png Shred, Mod TT 20px.png Gilded Truth, etc.) reduce the delay between bursts, but did not increase the fire rate of the actual bullets themselves. As of Hotfix 17.4.3 (2015-09-16), fire rate mods now increase the fire rate of the burst itself.
  • It isn't advised to put a Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber on the Burston Prime as this weapon benefits more in close to mid range situations with its high accuracy and damage over long range situations where hitting enemies with all bullets becomes more difficult.
  • Modifying the magazine can sometimes be problematic, as you might be reduced to only 1 or 2 rounds in your last shot. A Max Rank Mod TT 20px.png Wildfire or a Rank 3 Mod TT 20px.png Magazine Warp will give you a magazine of 54, allowing you 18 bursts before reloading. This ensures you will always fire 3 rounds in every burst.

Trivia[]

  • The Burston Prime has noticeably less golden ornamentation than previous Prime weapons.
  • At the time of its release, the Burston Prime was the first Prime weapon whose component drops were exclusive to the Orokin Derelict instead of the Orokin Void. Update 12 has since moved some component drops into the Void.
  • The Burston Prime is the first Prime primary weapon to receive a Weapon Augments mod.
  • The Burston Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13 (2015-02-05).
  • During a flashback to The Old War in Erra (Quest), an Excalibur PrimeIcon272.png Excalibur Prime is seen wielding the Burston Prime, albeit firing in full-auto mode. This implies that the weapon was more powerful in the past, matching the weapon's Codex entry.
