Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Use Mod TT 20px.png Point Strike to take advantage of Paris Prime's extremely high base critical chance.
    • A level 4 Mod TT 20px.png Point Strike is also sufficient to boost each shot's critical chance past 100%, making every shot a critical hit.
    • A maxed Point Strike will, with every charged shot, give a 12.5% chance for orange crits.
  • Lead targets both horizontally and vertically at greater distances in order to compensate for projectile travel time.
  • Maintaining a charge at all times can make engaging a group of enemies easier.
    • Charging can be cancelled without releasing the arrow by using the reload button (Press the reload button while holding fire).
      • Doing a melee attack will release the arrow, however.
    • All "charge weapons" (except CorpusHandRocket.png Angstrum and CrpBFG.png Opticor) are capable of holding their charge during a sprint.
    • As long as the user starts charging a shot, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting.
    • Using elevators and opening co-op doors does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will.
    • Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.
  • Use Mod TT 20px.png Speed Trigger to increase responsiveness when you get used to charged shots with bows. It is more effective than Mod TT 20px.png Fast Hands in terms of increasing DPS.
