The Panthera Prime is the primed variant of the 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 Inaros Prime and Karyst Prime.
