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.

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

The Vectis Prime is the Prime version of the VectisDEVectis.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 PrimeAsh PrimeIcon272.png Ash Prime and Carrier Prime.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Low Slash DamageDmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – less effective against health.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 400m to 600m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Extremely low magazine size of just two rounds; requires frequent reloading.
  • Tied with KomorexKomorex.png Komorex for the largest shot combo requirement of all sniper rifles.
  • High recoil, which may make it difficult to fire a follow-up shot, especially at higher zoom levels.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.

Notes[]

  • Due to the fact that it has two rounds per magazine instead of the Vectis' single round, Charged Chamber12?cb=20190608095452 Charged Chamber and Primed Chamber12?cb=20190608095452 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 Depleted Reload12?cb=20190608095452 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 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.
