Banshee Prime's signature shotgun is an instrument of devastation that fires both focused and broad shots.

The Euphona Prime is a Prime shotgun type sidearm and the signature weapon of Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime, capable of two different firing modes. The primary fire shoots a slug for longer range engagements while the Alternate Fire shoots wider spread shots for close range fights. The weapon deals extreme damage per shot, kept in check by its low magazine, slow fire rate, and difficulty to use at long distances owing to the primary fire's arcing projectile bullet and the alt-fire's massive damage fall-off.

    • Using Alternate Fire will shoot a spread of hitscan pellets akin to a shotgun, which focus on Slash b.svg Slash damage.
