An artifact of exquisite beauty. A weapon of deadly purpose.

The Tigris Prime is the primed variant of the DETigris Tigris shotgun. Featuring the second highest base damage of any non-Archwing weapon, it is balanced out by its low magazine size and damage falloff.

Tigris Prime was added along with Nekros PrimeIcon272 Nekros Prime and PrimeGalatine342 Galatine Prime in Hotfix: The Silver Grove 3.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Because of the mechanics of shotgun status chance, reaching 100% status chance results in many more status effects than 90% or even 99% would.
  • Due to the weapon's low magazine size and tight spread, consider using Mod TT 20pxSeeking Force and/or Mod TT 20pxSeeking Fury in order to deal with large groups more effectively.
  • Mod TT 20pxChilling 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 Mod TT 20pxAmmo Stock with a rank 1 Mod TT 20pxBurdened 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.

  • On June 5th, 2018, it was announced that Tigris Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on June 19th, 2018. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
