Weapon Loadouts

Main article: Category:Bronco Prime Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.

Tips

  • Weapon's spread cone can be shrunken by zooming in.
  • It has higher base Impact Damage than the Brakk, making it a good alternative when fighting the Corpus. In total, Bronco Prime deals 112 Impact damage per shot, while the Brakk only deals 67.5 Impact damage per shot.

Notes

  • The Bronco Prime can be treated similar to a pocket Hek, with the same damage, magazine size, and similar reload, though the ranges and spread are different.
  • The Bronco Prime's high damage, high spread, high pellet count (with Barrel Diffusion) and lack of damage falloff make it a superior crowd thinner and control tool against the Infested, particularly at long range.
  • Although having a wide bullet spread, a well modded Bronco Prime can effectively be used to eliminate enemies at farther ranges, and on extreme cases kill low level enemies with a few shots from across large maps, due to the fact there is no damage drop off over distances. That still said, it is not recommended to attempt to kill enemies farther than medium ranges.
  • Surprisingly effective at scattering damage over groups of enemies, even at long range due to the fact that Bronco series weapon do not have damage dropoff.
    • Using maxed Seeker is recommended to upgrade its crowd controlling capability, making it the best scatter-damaging sidearm.
  • Gunslinger (or Lethal Torrent) and Quickdraw are a must due to the low fire speed and reload speed, to increase overall DPS of the weapon.
  • The damage is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet is 16 impact, 2 puncture, and 2 slash.

Trivia

  • The Bronco Prime has a non-static model, the barrel section rotates when firing and reloading.

    • DE released Marelok, and Brakk lose DE logic :P
    • Brakk will not only have one more shot in a clip but will also reload in half the time. But of course it now has damage drop-off, so ...
