  • 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.
