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 will remain as is.

Disadvantages:

  • 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.
  • Its most effective damage range is around 5m to 8m due to the strong recoil and wide spread.

NotesEdit

  • It is possible to reach 100% status chance with the Boar Prime.
  • The original counterpart, the Boar, has been removed from the market in Update 10.4, making the Boar Prime the first prime weapon to phase out its predecessor.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 8.45 Impact b Impact1.95 Puncture b Puncture, and 2.60 Slash b Slash.
  • Along with various other shotguns, the Boar Prime's stats were increased with Update 17.

TipsEdit

  • Using the Shotgun Scavenger aura, Team Ammo Restore, and/or the Shotgun Ammo Mutation mod is highly recommended due to the weapon's high fire rate. It tends to chew through ammo quickly, especially when modded.
  • Despite good innate crit chance and damage values, the weak effect of critical shotgun mods will make elemental mods scale better.

TriviaEdit

  • It was released in Update 10, along with the Mag Prime and Dakra Prime.
  • Its central drum section rotates when firing (not that obvious as it is quite fast) and reloading, making it a non-static model.
  • The Boar Prime, along with the Dakra Prime, is specifically mentioned as being a Tenno creation, unlike other Prime items said to be created by the Orokin.
