Cernos Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables at this time and are no longer farmable. Vaulted Void Relics in player inventories are not affected and can still be opened.

A noble bow to hunt hellish beasts.

The Cernos Prime is the Prime variant of the DECernos.png Cernos. Aside from increased damage, the Cernos Prime is unique in that it fires three arrows per shot in a horizontal spread, and has an Alternate Fire mode that shoots vertically, and deals bonus damage on headshots.

  • Highest base damage of all bows.
  • Shoots 3 arrows.
  • Has a high headshot multiplier.
  • Charged shots have innate 1 meter punch through.
  • Pinpoint accuracy when aiming (RMB ).
  • Silent.

  • Has two Madurai Pol.svg slots.


  • Low DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – less effective against health.
  • Damage is split between each of its three arrows, requiring simultaneous hits to maximize damage, exacerbated by the large spread.
  • Arrows have travel time with slight arcing.



  • The Cernos Prime's shots fire multiple arrows in a fanning spread.
  • Alternate Fire toggles a Horizontal Spread or Vertical Spread fire.


  • The horizontal arrow spread is effective against groups of enemies, while the vertical spread is effective against a single target.
