Boltor Prime is the prime variant of the Boltor rifle. Like its classic version, its bolts' flight time require compensation, making this weapon more difficult to use at longer ranges, and requiring the user to lead targets for effectiveness. Despite this, the Boltor Prime can easily punish close-range targets with its high damage.
February 9th, 2016, it was announced that Boltor Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on February 16, 2016. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
Boltor Prime along with
Ankyros Prime, Boar Prime, Dakra Prime, Mag Prime, and Rhino Prime were unvaulted on June 27th, 2017 to August 1st, 2017.

Weapon Loadouts Edit
Since it has medium ammo economy, mods like Rifle Ammo Mutation or Ammo Drum can be used to gain extra ammo if needed, or alternatively, a Team Ammo Restore can be used.
The Boltor Prime has a knockback effect on kill that can be used instead of Punch Through to save an additional mod slot.
The knockback works with Punch Through mods, making a Boltor Prime with Shred or Metal Auger devastating when fired against lines of enemies as it both punches through them and knocks any killed enemies back into the line.
Up until , Rifle Ammo Mutation did not work for this gun.
Hotfix 12.4.3 The lack of damage means that the mods Slash Sawtooth Clip and Fanged Fusillade will have no effect on this weapon.
The innate polarity matches Primed Cryo Rounds.
A full elemental build can be useful for the Boltor Prime, due to the low critical chance and status chance.
Boltor Prime is the sixth primed Primary weapon ever released.
Compared to previous Prime weapons, the Boltor and the Boltor Prime have a much closer resemblance to each other.
A possible explanation is the manufacturing faction. The Boltor is a Tenno produced weapon, like, for example, the Braton.
