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 burst-fire rifle that serves as an upgraded version of the Burston. Compared to its predecessor, 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 Credits64‍7,500.

Advantages:

  • Low recoil.
  • Relatively much higher accuracy due to higher burst speed.
  • Comes with a V polarity.
  • Can use the Burston Prime-exclusive Gilded Truth mod.

Disadvantages:

  • Linearly less efficient. Sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, requiring another burst to be fired.
  • Semi-automatic weapons suffer rate of fire drops when frame rates are non-ideal.

Comparisons:

  • Burston Prime, compared to the Burston:
    • Higher base damage (39.0 vs. 30.0).
      • Higher Impact b Impact damage (11.7 vs. 10.0).
      • Higher Puncture b Puncture damage (11.7 vs. 10.0).
      • Higher Slash b Slash damage (15.6 vs. 10.0).
    • Higher burst rate (10.0 rounds/s vs. 5.0 rounds/s).
    • Higher status chance (15.0% vs. 10.0%).

TipsEdit

  • The Burston Prime has a fast burst, making it decent in long-range combat.
  • This weapon's Status Chance makes it more likely to deal Elemental procs than the usual Burston. Its chance to proc is at least 38.6% for each burst.
  • The Burston has arguably better ammo efficiency than the Soma or Synapse due to its burst-fire nature.
  • This weapon's burst-rate is affected by fire-rate mods, but its fire-rate during bursts is not.
  • It isn't advised to put a Heavy Caliber on the Burston Prime as this weapon benefits more in close to mid range situations with its high accuracy and damage over long range situations where hitting enemies with all bullets becomes more difficult.
  • Modifying the magazine can sometimes be problematic, as you might be reduced to only 1 or 2 rounds in your last shot. A Max Rank Wildfire or a Rank 3 Magazine Warp will give you a magazine of 54, allowing you 18 shots before reloading. This ensures you will always fire 3 rounds in every magazine.

TriviaEdit

  • 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 VoidUpdate 12 has since moved some component drops into the Void.
