Once thought lost to the ages, attempts to reengineer the Burston Prime never fully replicated this weapon's power and agility.
The Burston Prime is an ancient OrokinBurston. As the predecessor of the Burston, the Burston Prime features higher damages across the board, and a slightly higher status chance, making it a direct upgrade from the standard Burston. Like the standard Burston, the Burston Prime is signature for its three-round burst mechanic, making it difficult for some Tenno to use, but rewarding if one can learn the patterns.
The pointed end below the barrel of the Burston Prime is used as a guiding tip for aiming. It can be mistaken for a bayonet.
The Burston Prime has noticeably less golden ornamentation than previous Prime weapons.
The Burston Prime may have been designed for actual combat, in contrast to the ornamental nature of other Prime weaponry.
At the time of its release, the Burston Prime was the first Prime weapon whose component drops were exclusive to the Orokin Derelict instead of the Orokin Void. Update 12 has since moved some component drops into the Void.
