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

The Euphona Prime is Banshee PrimeIcon272 Banshee Prime's signature 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 Banshee Prime and Helios Prime.

  • Currently, Euphona Prime lacks a Signature Weapon bonus with Banshee PrimeIcon272 Banshee Prime.
  • The Euphona Prime has two different firing modes with different characteristics:
    • Normal shots fire a projectile that primarily deals Impact b Impact damage with high critical stats.
    • Using Alternate Fire will shoot a spread of hitscan pellets akin to a shotgun, which focus on Slash b 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.


  • Euphona Prime is the fourth standalone Prime piece of equipment, after ReaperPrime Reaper Prime, SwordPrime 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.


  • 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.

Patch HistoryEdit

Update 27.2
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.

  • (Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 3% to 9% (alt-fire).
