Vectis 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.

Once thought destroyed, the newly uncovered Vectis Prime revives Tenno martial traditions.

The Vectis Prime is the Prime version of the Vectis.png Vectis sniper rifle, featuring higher base damage, fire rate, and zoom, and a doubled magazine, but with a higher combo count requirement. It was released alongside Ash PrimeIcon272.png Ash Prime and Carrier Prime.

Characteristics[]

  • This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage.

Vaultings[]

  • On May 24th, 2017, it was announced that Vectis Prime, alongside Ash PrimeIcon272.png Ash Prime and Carrier Prime, would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on May 30th, 2017. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
  • On October 12th 2017, Vectis Prime was obtainable as a Twitch Drop reward with The Great Eidolon Hunt event.
  • On October 16th, 2018, Vectis Prime, FangPrime.png Fang Prime and an exclusive Sugatra were released as Twitch Prime benefits.
  • On November 19, 2019, Vectis Prime was unvaulted as part of the Ash & Vauban Prime Vault; it re-entered the Prime Vault February 11, 2020.

Notes[]

  • Due to the fact that it has two rounds per magazine instead of the Vectis' single round, Mod TT 20px.png Charged Chamber and Mod TT 20px.png Primed Chamber are less effective without the use of manual reloading.
    • Manual reloading also cannot be optimally performed due to the recoil animation after the first shot, which prevents the performance of an immediate reload. This can be circumvented by using the Mod TT 20px.png Depleted Reload mod, which reduces the magazine size of the Vectis Prime to 1, and increases reload speed (note, this alone will not affect reload delay, only the actual animation after the delay). However, this will slightly drop the weapon's DPS, due to the reload delay; a cursed riven, without fire rate or reload, will, in isolation, decrease it more strongly.
  • The Vectis Prime's forced Stagger counts as a status proc for Mod TT 20px.png Galvanized Aptitude.
  • The Vectis Prime has superior zoom capabilities to the Vectis, having a 6x maximum magnification compared to the Vectis' 4.5, while still maintaining a 3.5x minimum zoom for mid-range shooting.
  • The Vectis Prime has the largest shot combo requirement of the sniper rifles, needing 5 shots to initiate the 1.5x damage multiplier.

Trivia[]

  • Vectis is Latin for "Bar" or "Pole", referring to a locking bar (or bolt), a leveraging bar such as a Crowbar, or possibly referring to a carrying pole. Or that it's supposed to be a bolt action rifle
  • The Vectis Prime has a bipod, as opposed to the monopod on the normal Vectis. This might suggest that this rifle would be more precise and have less recoil because of the extra support from the bipod. It is purely cosmetic, however.
