The Zhuge Prime is a primed variant of the RepeatingCrossbow Zhuge Tenno automatic crossbow, with higher critical chance, fire rate, magazine size, and altered damage that favors Slash b Slash. To compensate for its decrease in total damage, status chance, and reload speed, the bolts fired by the Zhuge Prime explode shortly after impact, and reloads twice as fast from an empty magazine.
