Aternatively, bring along a good sidearm/melee weapon if in a tight spot with no ammo.
Mods like Ammo Drum can also help with ammo efficiency problems.
This weapon was introduced on January 30, 2013.
An update on February 5th, 2013 nerfed the Boltor to have 12.5 damage per shot. Soon after it was given a slight buff to 18.0 damage per shot, which is still less than the 25 on its initial release.
On April 12, 2013, an update addressed the issue of frame-rate affecting the fire-rate of weapons and several weapons have had their baseline values changed. This update reduced the firing rate value of the Boltor from 11.7 to 8.8.
Originally the weapon shared the same icon and description as Braton, while the blueprint icon and in-game model shared that of Burston. As of a visual update on February 8, 2013, it now has a unique appearance and description.
