Weapon Loadouts Edit
The Lato Prime with non-Prime colors as a log-in rewards icon.
The Lato Prime has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to -focused melee weapons. This makes the Lato Prime a prime candidate for a Slash Desecrating Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.
This weapon has its own unique audio when fired.
As of , all parts of this weapon can be customized.
Update 10.2 At rare times, a Lato Prime with the normal Lato default colors and without gold trim could be seen as the image for the Secondary Weapons Item XP prize on the daily Login Rewards, replacing the usual image for the reward.
The Lato Prime bears a resemblance to the real life Derringer pocket pistol.
Against their agreement with Digital Extremes, Perfect World re-released the Lato Prime as part of a Halloween promotion for the Chinese build. Between October 28th and October 31st, 2016, anyone who purchased the 4,250 Platinum bundle also received the Lato Prime,  Dullahan Mask, Lacera, Constitution, and Primed Target Cracker. The promotion was modified in the 29th to give the Reaper Prime instead.
