Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Latron Prime was added into the game in Update 8.0, becoming one of the first prime weapons to be available to non-founders.
  • On March 17, 2015 it was announced that the Latron Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on March 24, 2015. Any pre-existing components or fully-built weapons will remain as is. This weapon was then returned temporarily from December 8 2015 through January 5 2016, either as part of the purchase-able Prime Vault or through drops in the Orokin Void, along with Frost PrimeIcon272.png Frost Prime and ReaperPrime.png Reaper Prime, as well as Misa Syandana Prime, Titan Extractor Prime, and Frost Prime avatars. The latter 3 are only available if you purchase the pack, while the former were available from the Void. Latron Prime was again available from December 6 2016 to January 3 2017 as part of the Fire and Ice Prime Vault.
  • The Latron Prime and Reaper Prime were available after Update 8, although DE had previously mentioned not releasing the weapons. This may be because of the many times U8 had been delayed.[1]
  • Latron Prime is the first primary weapon to be a Prime.
  • As of Update 8.3, the Latron Prime's body and energy color can be colored.
  • The Latron Prime has a distinctive firing sound that might suggest it uses energy or electronics in firing.
  • The Latron rifles could be classified as battle rifles.
  • As of Update 14.5 the Latron Prime has been given a new reload animation.
    • The animation shows the Warframe pulling a lever (golden bar forward of the trigger) to open the chamber of the rifle before it is closed again as the weapon is reloaded.
  • The Latron Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
