Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • 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 280 Impact damage per shot, while the Brakk only deals 90 Impact damage per shot.

NotesEdit

  • The Bronco Prime's high damage, high spread and high pellet count (with Barrel Diffusion) make it a good crowd thinner and control tool, particularly against the Infested.
    • Using Seeker is recommended to upgrade its crowd controlling capability.
  • 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 40 impact, 5 puncture, and 5 slash.

TriviaEdit

  • 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.
