Banshee Prime's signature shotgun is an instrument of devastation that fires both focused and broad shots.

The Euphona Prime is a Prime shotgun type sidearm and the signature weapon of Banshee Prime, capable of two different firing modes. The primary fire shoots a slug for longer range engagements while the Alternate Fire shoots wider spread shots for close range fights. The weapon deals extreme damage per shot, kept in check by its low magazine, slow fire rate, and difficulty to use at long distances owing to the primary fire's arcing projectile bullet and the alt-fire's massive damage fall-off.

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact or Slash b Slash damage depending on the firing type.


  • High damage.
    • Primary fire has high Impact b Impact damage – effective against shields.
    • Alt-fire has high Slash b Slash damage – effective against health.
    • Alt-fire has the highest base damage of all shotgun-type secondaries.
  • Primary fire is tied with Spira Prime, Lato Prime, and Pandero for the second highest critical chance of all secondaries, behind Akbolto Prime.
  • Primary fire has high critical multiplier.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Alt-fire fires a very short range shotgun blast.
    • Alt-fire can be used even while rolling.
  • Alt-fire has very high status chance.
  • Comes with three innate Madurai Pol polarity slots.


  • Primary fire has low Slash b Slash and Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against health and armor.
  • Alt-fire has low Puncture b Puncture and Impact b Impact damage – less effective against armor and shields.
  • Slow rate of fire.
  • Slow reload speed.
  • Low magazine size.
  • Low maximum ammo capacity.
  • Bullet has travel time, making it difficult to land accurate shots at long distances.
  • Bullet travels in an arc, making it difficult for use at long range.
  • Hip-fire is very inaccurate, roughly double the hip-fire accuracy of sniper rifles.
  • Primary fire has extremely low status chance.
  • Alt-fire has extremely low critical chance.
  • Alt-fire has linear damage falloff from 100% to ~1% from 6m to 12m target distance (distances are affected Projectile Speed).
  • Alt-fire has a large, inconsistent spread.
  • Alt-fire shot goes to the right and up. Horizontally it hits rightmost side of the reticle at 3m, worsening at longer distances.


  • The Euphona Prime has two different firing modes with different characteristics:
    • Normal shots fire a projectile that primarily deals Impact b Impact damage, and has 30% base critical chance.
    • Using Alternate Fire will shoot a spread of hitscan pellets akin to a shotgun, which focus on Slash b Slash damage and has 30% base status chance.
  • Its primary fire has bullet drop, and slightly spreads at long distances. It also enforces a ragdoll-like effect if a headshot is performed.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 4.4 Impact b Impact, 17.6 Puncture b Puncture, and 66.0 Slash b Slash (a total of 88).


  • Euphona Prime is the fourth standalone Prime piece of equipment, after Reaper Prime, Dakra Prime, and the Kavasa Prime Collar, and the first standalone Prime Secondary weapon.
  • Euphona is a Greek word that refers to pleasant sounds, typically letters, syllables, or words.


  • Currently Euphona Prime's alternative shot's spread is bugged. It spreads to the upper right of the crosshair instead of around the crosshair as normal shotguns do; the crosshair seems to always be at the lower-left outer edge of the spread.
