Pyrana Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables and do not drop during gameplay at this time. Vaulted Void Relics already contained in player inventories are not affected and can still be either opened or traded between players.

Three kills in rapid succession to summon a second ethereal Pyrana for twice the deadly punch.

Pyrana Prime is the Primed variant of Pyrana.png Pyrana, sporting higher critical stats, longer range before damage falloff occurs, increased magazine size, and faster reload, at the expense of damage and slower fire rate. To compensate for these losses, when the weapon kills thrice in quick succession, a second ethereal Pyrana appears for a short time, transforming the weapon into an akimbo with doubled ammunition and firing speed. It was released alongside Limbo PrimeIcon272.png Limbo Prime and DestrezaPrime.png Destreza Prime.

Characteristics[]

  • This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
  • 3 kills each within 2 seconds of the previous kill summons a second Pyrana Prime for 6 seconds, doubling its magazine size and increasing its fire rate by 40%.
  • Innate two Madurai Pol.svg polarities.

Advantages:

  • Innate multishot of 10 pellets.
  • Efficient ammo economy.
  • Normal Attack
    • Second highest average number of crits per shot behind KuvaBrakk.png Kuva Brakk
    • Third highest multishot behind Pyrana.png Pyrana
    • High crit chance
    • Above average crit multiplier

Disadvantages:

  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 25% from 18m to 36m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Low overall status chance.
  • Low accuracy.
  • High recoil, especially on full auto and with the second Pyrana Prime.
  • Shots go to the right and up. Horizontally it hits the rightmost side of the reticle at 3m, worsening at longer distances.
  • Normal Attack
    • Below average magazine
    • Low damage
    • Below average effective fire rate
    • Very low average number of procs per shot
    • Very low status chance

Notes[]

  • Killing 3 enemies in quick succession while having 2 Pyranas will not refresh the duration of the ethereal Pyrana.
  • Upon activating the ethereal Pyrana, the number of rounds in its modded magazine size are added to the magazine (e.g. if modded magazine size is 14, 14 rounds are added when ethereal Pyrana is conjured). When the ethereal Pyrana disappears, the magazine is reduced to the modded magazine size (e.g. if the modded magazine size is 14, any number of rounds in the current magazine will be reduced to 14, unless the number of rounds is below 14 as it will remain the same).
  • The fire rate bonus is multiplicative to the modded fire rate.
  • The Pyrana Prime generates a large amount of recoil, which is even more noticeable when dual-wielding with the ethereal Pyrana.
  • Pyrana Prime's passive still applies while carrying an object, such as a Mobile Defense datamass.
  • If you holster Pyrana Prime while the ethereal Pyrana is active its timer will pause, allowing you to save the buff for later and make more strategic use of it.

Patch History[]

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.

  • (Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 1.2% to 3.6%.
