Euphona Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables and do not drop during gameplay at this time. Vaulted Void Relics already contained in player inventories are not affected and can still be either opened or traded between players.

Banshee Prime's signature shotgun is an instrument of devastation that fires both focused and broad shots.

The Euphona Prime is Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime's signature standalone Prime shotgun sidearm, capable of two different firing modes. The primary fire shoots a slug for longer range engagements while the Alternate Fire shoots wider spread shots for close range fights. The weapon deals extreme damage per shot, kept in check by its low magazine, slow fire rate, and difficulty to use at long distances owing to the primary fire's arcing projectile bullet and the alt-fire's massive damage fall-off. It was released alongside Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime and Helios Prime.

Notes[]

  • Currently, Euphona Prime lacks a Signature Weapon bonus with Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime.
  • The Euphona Prime has two different firing modes with different characteristics:
    • Normal shots fire a projectile that primarily deals DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage with high critical stats.
    • Using Alternate Fire will shoot a spread of hitscan pellets akin to a shotgun, which focus on DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage and high status chance.
  • Its primary fire has bullet drop, and slightly spreads at long distances. It also enforces a ragdoll-like effect if a headshot is performed.

Tips[]

  • Projectile Speed mods will reduce the slug projectile drop, increase projectile speed, and increase the effective range of the buckshot secondary fire.

Trivia[]

  • Euphona Prime is the fourth standalone Prime piece of equipment, after ReaperPrime.png Reaper Prime, DakraPrime.png Dakra Prime, and the Kavasa Prime Collar, and the first standalone Prime Secondary weapon.
  • Euphona is a Greek word that refers to pleasant sounds, typically letters, syllables, or words.
  • Euphona Prime is the first Signature Weapon to be primed. However, Euphona Prime was implemented before signature weapon bonuses were added.
  • Euphona Prime is the only signature weapon to not have a common counterpart.
  • As of Update 25, Euphona Prime's default palette has gone from a brown, wood-like finish to a glossy white to be more in line with Orokin aesthetics.

Bugs[]

  • When reloading immediately after an alt-fire shot, the default secondary reload animation will play with no sound.
  • If no other Prime weapons, nor items are equipped, Baro Ki'Teer will treat players equipped with Euphona Prime in his usual mocking tone.

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.
