Adorned with void hardened prisma crystal, this Gorgon variant is prized for its beauty and enhanced mechanics.

The Prisma Gorgon is the Prisma variant of the Gorgon.png Gorgon light machine gun, featuring higher fire rate, magazine size and capacity, and accuracy, and faster spool-up and reload, at a slight expense to damage.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The Prisma Gorgon is potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png50,000 and PrimeBucks.png600. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The weapon can be traded, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 11.

Weapon Loadouts[edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While the Prisma Gorgon has the same vertical recoil behavior as the Gorgon.png Gorgon and the WraithGorgon.png Gorgon Wraith, it has significantly reduced horizontal recoil, which combined with its higher accuracy stats makes it overall more accurate at longer ranges.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Like the Gorgon.png Gorgon and the WraithGorgon.png Gorgon Wraith, the Prisma Gorgon has a spool-down period in which it can retain its maximum rate of fire after releasing the trigger. Firing the weapon to maximum rate of fire, releasing the trigger and then firing before the spool-down period finishes allows the weapon to be fired in short bursts.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Prisma Gorgon was leaked as an entry in the player Profile under Equipment before it was formally introduced.
  • Parts of the Prisma Gorgon have animated textures to differentiate it from its previous variants.
    • The Prisma Gorgon also has modified firing sounds similar to a Prime weapon.
  • The Prisma Gorgon's colors can be customized, a trait shared with its variants.
  • The Prisma Gorgon was the first item to have the "Prisma" prefix in its name.
