Encased in plates refined from pure Prisma crystals, this rare element gives this assault rifle a radiant luster.

The Prisma Grakata is the Prisma variant of the GrakataGrineerAssaultRifle.png Grakata assault rifle, featuring enhanced fire rate, reload speed, critical damage, magazine, and ammo reserves.


This weapon deals primarily Impact DamageDmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage by a small margin.



  • Third lowest base damage of all fully automatic rifles, after SomaU10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma/Soma PrimePrimeSoma.png Soma Prime, and normal GrakataGrineerAssaultRifle.png Grakata; very reliant on its high critical damage potential.
    • Ill-suited against Object-based health as it nullifies any critical hits.
  • High recoil makes it difficult to shoot down enemies beyond medium range.
  • High fire rate and recoil hinders the weapon's high accuracy.
  • Low reload speed.
  • Inefficient ammo economy.



The Prisma Grakata is potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png 100,000 and PrimeBucks.png 610. 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 when unranked and without Forma or Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 11.


  • Due to a high rate of fire and a high critical chance, Critical Delay12?cb=20190608095452 Critical Delay can be used with the Prisma Grakata to lower the firerate (effectively making the weapon easier to handle and reduces ammo cost) and increase the critical chance at the cost of slightly lower overall DPS.
  • Compared to other rifles with high rates of fire, the Prisma Grakata has a high chance to cause status effects, which goes well with builds designed to weaken, confuse, or stun enemies.


  • This weapon appeared in the Codex with Update 16.4 (2015-04-23), but was later removed from visibility in Hotfix 16.4.3 (2015-04-24). It reappeared in the Codex in Update 16.7 (2015-06-04).
  • Like other Prisma guns, the Prisma Grakata has a change to its firing sound when compared to the normal variant.
  • The Prisma Grakata used to have the same reload animation as the IgnisGrineerFlameThrower.png Ignis up until Update 18.5 (2016-03-04).
