One of the finest examples of Tenno craftsmanship, the Boar Prime offers a higher rate of fire and clip size with a slight decrease in per-shot damage.

The Boar Prime is the Prime version of the Boar.png Boar, featuring higher damage and fire rate, but retains its ineffectiveness in mid-long engagements.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Impact b.svg Impact damage.



  • Low Puncture b.svg Puncture damage and Slash b.svg Slash damage – less effective against health.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 30% from 18m to 25m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Very slow reload speed.
  • Ammo inefficient.
  • Strong recoil, although manageable. 


  • Boar Prime, compared to Boar:
    • Lower base damage (72.0 vs. 88.0)
      • Lower Impact b.svg Impact damage (46.8 vs. 48.4)
      • Lower Puncture b.svg Puncture damage (10.8 vs. 13.2)
      • Lower Slash b.svg Slash damage (14.4 vs. 26.4)
    • Higher fire rate (4.67 rounds/sec vs. 4.17 rounds/sec)
    • Longer range before damage falloff starts (18m vs. 15m)
    • Larger max damage reduction due to falloff (70% vs. 50%)
    • Slower reload speed (2.75 s vs. 2.7 s)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (11 vs. 2)

Weapon Loadouts[edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The original counterpart, the Boar.png Boar, was removed from the market in Update 10.4, making the Boar Prime the first prime weapon to phase out its predecessor.
    • The Boar was added back into circulation in Update 17.7, several updates after the Boar Prime was removed from Void drop tables.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 5.85 Impact b.svg Impact1.35 Puncture b.svg Puncture and 1.8 Slash b.svg Slash.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It was released in Update 10.0, along with the Mag PrimeIcon272.png Mag Prime and SwordPrime.png Dakra Prime.
  • Its central drum section rotates when firing (not that obvious as it is quite fast) and reloading, making it a non-static model.
  • The Boar Prime, along with the Dakra Prime, is specifically mentioned as being a Tenno creation, unlike other Prime items said to be created by the Orokin.
  • Boar Prime's description incorrectly states it increases magazine size and fire rate at the cost of damage in comparison to regular Boar. It does have increased fire rate, but the magazine size is the same and Boar Prime deals a total of 8 damage more than Boar does.

Media[edit | edit source]

Vaultings[edit | edit source]

  • On June 29, 2015, it was announced that the Boar Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on July 7, 2015. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons would remain as is.
