Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Weapon's spread cone can be shrunk 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.


  • The Bronco Prime's high damage, high spread, high pellet count (with Barrel Diffusion) and lack of damage falloff make it a good crowd thinner and control tool, particularly against the Infested.
    • Using Seeker is recommended to upgrade its crowd controlling capability.
  • 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 said, it is not recommended to attempt to kill enemies farther than medium ranges.
  • Gunslinger (or Lethal Torrent) and Quickdraw may be valuable due to the low rate of fire and reload speed, to increase the time spent shooting.
  • 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.


  • The Bronco Prime has a non-static model, the barrel section rotates clockwise when fired and whilst reloading.
  • The Bronco Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
