Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Since it has medium ammo economy, mods like Mod TT 20pxRifle Ammo Mutation or Mod TT 20pxAmmo Drum can be used to gain extra ammo if needed, or alternatively, a Team Ammo Restore can be used. another option would be to use Carrier's Ammo Case.
  • The Boltor Prime has a knockback effect on kill that can be used instead of Punch Through to save an additional mod slot.
    • The knockback works with Punch Through mods, making a Boltor Prime with Mod TT 20pxShred or Mod TT 20pxMetal Auger devastating when fired against lines of enemies as it both punches through them and knocks any killed enemies back into the line.



  • 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.
