The Prisma Burst Laser is the default weapon for the Prisma Shade Sentinel and is a special Prisma version of the three-round burst-fire DESentinelBurstLaser.png Burst Laser. This weapon accepts pistol mods.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 1,250.


This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage.





The Prisma Burst Laser is automatically acquired upon claiming the Prisma Shade from the Foundry. Note that this weapon also takes up one Sentinel inventory slot.


  • The Prisma Burst Laser's Fire Rate (1.61/s) is per burst, not per shot. However, its Status Chance (10%) is per shot. Each of the three shots in a burst will roll to proc status.
  • Its reload time of 0.0 seconds means that the Prisma Burst Laser takes no breaks from firing, while the sentinel is not preoccupied. This also means that its magazine size and reload speed modifications are irrelevant. Furthermore, it benefits more from fire rate than other weapons, due to its fire rate not impacting how much time it will spend reloading. This is converse to SentinelBurstLaserPrime.png Prime Laser Rifle, which spends its entire magazine in a third of a second.
  • Despite having an accuracy of 100, Diriga's Mod TT 20px.png Calculated Shot makes shots fire at an extreme spread: it is ill-advised to equip Diriga with this weapon.


  • With it's virtually nonexistent downtime, this weapon is excellent to equip with Mod TT 20px.png Energy Generator or Mod TT 20px.png Synth Deconstruct, allowing the Companion to get as many assists as possible.


  • Shortly after the Prisma Shade was available, this weapon could be purchased separately from Baro Ki'Teer, without having to purchase the Prisma Shade at all. This was quickly rectified.
