Soma Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables at this time and are no longer farmable. Vaulted Void Relics in player inventories are not affected and can still be opened.

Known for taking down whole squads with its single massive magazine, few weapons were as feared as the Prime Soma.

The Soma Prime is the Primed variant of the SomaU10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma assault rifle, featuring a greater magazine size, greater ammo reserves, faster spool-up, and a slight increase to status chance. It was released alongside Nova/PrimeNova PrimeIcon272.png Nova Prime and Vasto PrimePrimeVasto.png Vasto Prime.

Characteristics[]

This weapon deals primarily Slash DamageDmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Tied with normal SomaU10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma for the second lowest damage of all fully automatic rifles, after GrakataGrineerAssaultRifle.png Grakata; very reliant on its high critical damage potential.
    • Ill-suited against Object-based health as it nullifies any critical hits.
  • Low Impact DamageDmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage – less effective against shields.
  • High fire rate generates high recoil, hindering accuracy.
  • Low reload speed.
  • Sub-optimal ammo efficiency.

    • Higher base status chance (10% vs. 7%)

    • Larger magazine (200 round(s) vs. 100 round(s))
    • Larger max ammo capacity (800 round(s) vs. 540 round(s))
    • Faster spool-up (4 round(s) vs. 8 round(s))
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (7 vs. 6)

Trivia[]

  • The Soma Prime was one of the first prime items which had colorable gold parts. This trait was shared with the Vasto PrimePrimeVasto.png Vasto Prime, Nova/PrimeNova PrimeIcon272.png Nova Prime and the Pyra Prime Syandana.
  • The ring-like formation through which the Warframe holds the weapon with their left hand rotates while firing, making this one of the few primary weapons that have firing animations.
    • Like its non-prime version, the Soma Prime's magazine passes up through its receiver as it fires, with the portion of the magazine consumed indicating the amount of ammo left.
  • The Soma Prime is also the only Primed weapon in the game that keeps its original counterpart's base damage.
