A golden version of Garuda’s versatile crossbow, as fashioned by the Orokin’s finest weaponsmiths. Alt-fire to let loose a barrage of bolts. All bolts have a chance to cause Bleeding, and Headshots have a chance to increase Reload Speed. When wielded by Garuda the Nagantaka gains a slight Punch Through effect.

Nagantaka Prime is the Primed variant of the Nagantaka.png Nagantaka Crossbow, sporting increased Damage, Critical Chance, burst Fire rate, and Magazine size. It was released alongside GarudaPrimeIcon.png Garuda Prime and CorvasPrime.png Corvas Prime.

  • When used by GarudaIcon272.png Garuda or GarudaPrimeIcon.png Garuda Prime, the Nagantaka Prime gains 1 meter innate Punch Through.
  • Similar to its standard counterpart, the Nagantaka Prime's Alternate Fire will eject all of the remaining ammunition in the magazine in a single burst.
    • If buffed with unlimited ammo such as from the Reactant Buff, the weapon will only fire its magazine amount at a time, with small delays between each trigger pull.
    • Unlike  the Pandero.png Pandero or  Mod TT 20px.png Wild Frenzy, the Nagantaka Prime can still be aimed during the burst, allowing the weapon to still benefit from Acolyte Mods. However, recoil can be a bit of an issue when trying to aim the entire burst at a single target especially if  Mod TT 20px.png Speed Trigger is used, so you may need to equip  Mod TT 20px.png Stabilizer to account for it.
    • Given the much higher damage-per-shot of the Nagantaka Prime compared to other Burst and Auto rifles and its own standard counterpart, while in mid-burst the Nagantaka Prime has a higher total DPS rate than all of them.


  • As with most weapons with the ability to unload an entire magazine in a single burst (such as the KuvaHek.png Kuva Hek or the Pandero.png Pandero), the Nagantaka Prime's alt-fire synergizes well with MagIcon272.png Mag's short-tap Magnetize130xDark.png Magnetize bubble, as the quick torrent of shot can pulverize crowds of enemies caught in the bubble.
