Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • It is not recommended for use against Infested enemies (especially at high levels) due to the majority of the damage being Puncture b Puncture damage.
    • Due to light infested units being granted armor by Swarm-Mutalist MOA, Fang Prime can still end up being more effective versus those units than slash-based daggers.
  • When farming Void Relics for the handles, keep in mind that a Fang Prime Handle is required to advance in the Red Veil Syndicate.

NotesEdit

  • All melee attacks beside normal attacks (jump, slide, wall, slam and finisher attacks) have a 10% proc chance.
  • Unlike many other prime weapons, Fang Prime does not require Orokin Cells to build.

    • Try coptering with a Scoliac on max Fury and Berserker, and equipping the Coiling Viper stance on it. It's simply insane.
    • Same goes for coptering with an amphis, except more.
