A classic Orokin weapon, Braton Prime features modified damage levels and a larger magazine over the standard model.
The Braton Prime is an ancient Orokin assault rifle that serves as an upgrade of the Braton. It features higher base damage and magazine capacity compared to the standard Braton, at the cost of lower ammo reserves. The Braton Prime sports a higher ratio of Slash damage than the basic Braton, though its Impact damage is comparatively lower. Overall, the Braton Prime is a formidable weapon, and is considered to be a reasonable upgrade from the basic Braton.
The Braton Prime has the unique capability of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Braton Prime the prime candidate for a DesecratingNekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.
When used extensively or playing solo, the Braton Prime's ammunition can run out quickly. Consider switching to your secondary, utilizing melee combat, or using the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod.
When fighting at long range, consider firing the Braton Prime in short bursts, or charge the enemy to gain ground. The ammo saved from avoiding long range fighting can compensate for damage sustained in melee/short ranged combat.
