One of the finest examples of Tenno craftsmanship, the Boar Prime offers a higher rate of fire and clip size with a slight decrease in per-shot damage .
The Boar Prime is an ancient Orokin automatic shotgun that serves as an upgraded version of the Boar. The Boar Prime further improves on the strengths of the Boar, focusing on a high rate of fire, spread, and magazine capacity, on top of improving overall damage. This gives the Boar Prime extremely high damage per second, mitigated only by the short-comings of its predecessor, with its inability to effectively engage targets past short range.
On June 29, 2015, it was announced that the Boar Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on July 7, 2015. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons would remain as is.
High status chance, can reach 100% status per pellet with 4 status+elemental combo mods. (Status should be calculated before multishot is added as the weapon card does not properly take extra pellets into account.)
Wide spread is ideal for fighting large crowds of weak units.
High pellet count.
Good critical chance.
Damage drops off over distance.
Low damage (Second lowest of all shotguns).
Slow reload speed.
Poor ammo economy.
Strong recoil, although manageable.
Wide spread can be ideal for crowds but this in turn lowers effective range, recommending closer combat situations.
