The max-velocity saw-launcher perfected. Features a larger magazine, faster fire rate, and a radial, slashing ricochet.

The Panthera Prime is the primed variant of the TennoMiter.png Panthera, sporting increased critical chance, status chance, fire rate, and magazine size, at some expense to accuracy, reload speed, and max ammo capacity. The primary fire also gains the ability to shoot explosive sawblades, while still being able to ricochet off surfaces. It was released alongside InarosPrimeIcon272.png Inaros Prime and KarystPrime.png Karyst Prime.
