Weapon LoadoutsEdit

Main article: Category:Paris Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • The MK-1 Paris is a slightly weaker version of the standard Paris Paris, with less overall damage. It handles identically otherwise. However its charge time is half that of Paris and it has a very minuscule 0.1 second faster reload.
  • Enemies will notice missed arrows but arrows that hit are silent.


  • Charging can be cancelled without releasing the arrow using the reload button (Press reload button while holding the left mouse).
  • All "charge weapons" (except CorpusHandRocket Angstrum) are now capable of holding their charge during a sprint, and as long as the user starts the charge, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting. This allows for more mobility to the user such as charging their weapon in cover, then run into the room and to unleash their first shot at first sight at the enemy immediately.
    • Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.


  • The MK-1 Paris was introduced as one of three starter Primary weapons in Update 14, alongside the Braton MK1-Braton and the Strun MK1-Strun.
  • Paris is most likely named for Paris of Troy in Homer's Iliad, who was a skilled archer and the one to have killed Achilles by firing an arrow into his heel.
  • The Paris is the only bow that does not have a tension spring, as the arrow is held in place and launched by magnetic induction rather than physical force.


  • After charging an arrow and firing it while zooming, the next arrow you fire will not be drawn from the quiver, and instead the Paris and your hand will jerk very slightly. The next shot will show the reloading animation correctly.
  • On Xbox One, entering a mission by dropping from the Liset shows the arrow stuck to the Tenno's hand. The same can sometimes be seen when extracting.
    • Both bugs are visual only and do not affect the gameplay.
