An artifact of exquisite beauty. A weapon of deadly purpose.

The Tigris Prime is the primed variant of the DETigris.png Tigris shotgun. Featuring the highest base damage of any non-Archwing weapon, it is balanced out by its low magazine size and damage falloff.

Tigris Prime was added along with Nekros PrimeIcon272.png Nekros Prime and PrimeGalatine342.png Galatine Prime in Hotfix: The Silver Grove 3.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 1.8 Impact b.svg Impact, 1.8 Puncture b.svg Puncture and 14.4 Slash b.svg Slash.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Aiming down sights will increase weapon accuracy and decrease shotgun spread, making the Tigris more effective at medium ranges.
