Used together, these Orokin pistols feed off each other, inflicting greater damage with an enhanced chance for inducing elemental effects on targets
The Akbronco Prime is the dual wielding version of the Bronco Prime. Compared to Akbronco, they lower Impact damage to increase Slash damage, while gaining increased firing rate, critical damage, status chance and magazine size compared to the non-prime version. The Akbronco Prime was added into the game in Update 12.4.
The Akbronco Prime is a viable alternative to the Brakk, sharing its wide spread with no damage drop-off. This makes it fare very well against a large group of enemies from a greater distance.
The Brakk has a smaller magazine, faster reload, and a relatively high rate of fire. This makes it better at quickly firing and reloading.
The damage is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values; the actual damage per pellet is 9Impact, 1.5Puncture and 4.5Slash.
The Akbronco Prime deals the same amount of damage compared to its normal counterpart, but it trades out some of its Impact damage for additional Slash damage, making it more effective against low-armored fleshy units and the Infested.
The single Bronco Prime has a magazine size of 4, whereas the Akbronco Prime has 6.
Unlike other single/double weapon variants including the non-prime versions, the Akbronco Prime deals significantly less damage per shot than it's single Bronco Prime variant, while all others deal the same damage as their solo counterpart.
The high status chance, however, allows the Akbronco Prime to compensate for the damage it has to sacrifice.
Like many of the older weapons, during a reload the Akbronco Prime's clip will be reloaded before the reload animation is actually finished; if the reload is almost finished, the animation can be interrupted (by player or by enemy) and the weapon will still be reloaded. The point where the clip is reloaded occurs about 3/4's of the way through the animation.
