Vaultings[edit | edit source]
- On June 5, 2018, it was announced that Tigris Prime, alongside Nekros Prime and Galatine Prime, would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on June 19, 2018. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Due to the weapon's low magazine size and tight spread, consider using Seeking Force and/or Seeking Fury in order to deal with large groups more effectively.
- Chilling Reload can also help to speed up the weapon's frequent reloads.
- All Tigris variants can reach 4 shells in the magazine by combining a max rank Ammo Stock with a rank 1 Burdened Magazine.
- Due to rounding, increasing Burdened Magazine to a higher level will never give any more than 4 shells, but it will still increase the reload speed penalty.
- Aiming down sights will increase weapon accuracy and decrease shotgun spread, making the Tigris more effective at medium ranges.
