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

The Tigris Prime is the primed variant of the DETigris 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 Nekros Prime and PrimeGalatine342 Galatine Prime in Hotfix: The Silver Grove 3.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


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


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