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 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.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact or Slash b Slash damage depending on the firing type.

Advantages:

  • High damage.
    • Primary fire has high Impact b Impact damage – effective against shields.
    • Alt-fire has high Slash b Slash damage – effective against health.
    • Alt-fire has the highest base damage of all shotgun-type secondaries.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Alt-fire fires a very short range shotgun blast.
    • Alt-fire can be used even while rolling.
  • Comes with three Madurai Pol polarity slots.

Disadvantages:

  • Primary fire has low Slash b Slash and Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against health.
  • Alt-fire has low Puncture b Puncture and Impact b Impact damage – less effective against health and shields.
  • Alt-fire has linear damage falloff from 100% to ~1% from 6m to 12m target distance (distances are affected by projectile flight speed).
  • Low fire rate.
  • Low reload speed.
  • Low magazine size.
  • Low maximum ammo capacity.
  • Primary fire bullet has travel time with heavy arcing.
  • Hip-fire is very inaccurate, roughly double the hip-fire accuracy of sniper rifles.
  • Alt-fire has a very large spread.

NotesEdit

  • The Euphona Prime has two different firing modes with different characteristics:
    • Normal shots fire a projectile that primarily deals Impact b Impact damage.
    • Using Alternate Fire will shoot a spread of hitscan pellets akin to a shotgun, which focus on Slash b Slash damage.
  • Its primary fire has bullet drop, and slightly spreads at long distances.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 11.5 Impact b Impact, 4.6 Puncture b Puncture, and 17.25 Slash b Slash.

TriviaEdit
