Banshee Prime's signature shotgun is an instrument of devastation that fires both focused and broad shots.
The Euphona Prime is 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 Prime and Helios Prime.
This weapon deals primarily Impact on its primary fire and Slash damage on its alt-fire.
Primary fire shoots a long-ranged slug:
Highest base damage of all non-shotgun secondaries.
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.
(Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 3% to 9% (alt-fire).
