Imbued with the finest Prisma crystal, this refined Angstrum features boosted charge and reload speeds.

The Prisma Angstrum is the Prisma variant of the Corpus-built rocket pistol Angstrum, featuring slightly higher critical chance and critical damage multiplier, and faster charge-up and reload speed.

AcquisitionEdit

The Prisma Angstrum is potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64210,000 and PrimeBucks475. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The weapon can be traded, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 8.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Blast b Blast damage.

Advantages:

  • Tied with normal Angstrum for highest base damage of all secondaries.
  • Good critical chance.
  • Above average critical multiplier.
  • Very high status chance.
  • High accuracy.
  • Shoots rockets that explode in a 3-meter radius.
  • Can be charged to unload more of the weapon's magazine and fire extra projectiles.
    • Very fast charge speed.
    • Can be fired with a partial charge to fire only part of its magazine.
  • Has a Vazarin Pol polarity.

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Blast b Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor.
  • Projectiles have travel time, slow speed, and are small, making long range shots difficult.
  • Charged barrage spreads rockets out, reducing the effective range considerably.
    • Multishot will cause partially-charged shots to spread out further, eliminating its long range potential.
  • Explosions inflicts self-damage.
    • Rockets can explode on hitting teammates or allied NPCs.
  • Very high recoil.
  • The weapon fires as soon as it has reached a full charge, which can lead to premature firing.
  • Extremely ammo inefficient.
    • Extremely low magazine size of 3 rounds; requires frequent reloading.
      • Fully charged shot consumes the entire magazine, even when magazine mods are used.
    • Very low ammo capacity of 18 rounds.
  • Rockets have a short delay after firing before being able to fire again.
  • Enemies can destroy the rockets with gunfire or area of effect explosions.

Comparisons:

NotesEdit

  • The UI damage value of 1350 refers to the total impact and explosion damage from all three rockets.
  • The UI status chance value of 59.5% refers to the status chance from all three rockets. The actual status chance per rocket is 26%.
  • The Prisma Angstrum's extremely fast charge rate before firing a full rocket swarm can allow players to eschew fire rate mods that would otherwise be needed on the normal variant, allowing for better damage-based builds.
  • Doppelgangers created by Mirage's Hall of Mirrors do not inflict self damage with their rockets.
  • When built for magazine capacity and multishot the Angstrum's fully charged shot will fire 12 rockets, with an 80% chance to fire 18.
    • Synergizing with Hall of Mirrors, the Angstrum can fire a maximum of 54 rockets in a single charge, with lowered accuracy the area of effect becomes very large.
  • There is a slight yet noticeable delay between the Angstrum completing its charge and the rockets exiting the barrel.

TriviaEdit

  • The Prisma Angstrum is the first Prisma secondary ever released.
