CODEX Entry: Burston PrimeCodexbw
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 Orokin Burston. 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 Burston Prime can be sold for Credits 32px ‍7,500.
