The ornamental Latron Prime exploits ancient Orokin technology to get a slight damage increase over the standard Latron.

The Latron Prime is an ancient Orokin semi-automatic rifle that serves as an upgrade to the Latron, features higher base damage in the form of more Puncture damage and critical-hit chance. Much like the standard variant, the Latron Prime holds the same strengths, making it an excellent upgrade to the Latron.

The Latron Prime was added into the game in Update 8, becoming one of the first prime weapons to be available to non-founders.

On March 17, 2015 it was announced that the Latron Prime would be retired from the reward tables on March 24, 2015. Removed from rewards on March 24th, 2015. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 7,500.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

Main article: Category:Latron Prime Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • Latron Prime used to have an approximate damage of 45, prior to Update 12.
  • Has a very fractionally higher Impact damage, only apparent when building for maximum damage, showing up as 0.1 more damage.  
  • All blueprints and parts removed from rewards on March 24th, 2015  


  • The Latron Prime and Reaper Prime were available after Update 8, although DE had previously mentioned not releasing the weapons on U8. This may be because of the many times U8 had been delayed. [1]
  • Latron Prime is the first primary weapon to be a Prime.
  • As of Update 8.3, the Latron Prime's body and energy color can be colored.
  • The Latron Prime has a distinctive firing sound that might suggest it uses energy or electronics in firing.
  • The Latron rifles are most likely classifiable as battle rifles, if not designated marksman rifles (DMR).
  • As of Update 14.5 the Latron Prime has been given a new reload animation.
    • The new reload animations suggests that the Latron Prime is a lever action rifle, as the animation shows that you have to pull the lever (golden bar near the trigger) to open the top of the barrel, which appears to be the action of the Latron Prime, before it is closed again as the weapon is reloaded.
    • However, unlike a Lever Action rifle, you do not pull the lever to load a new bullet into the chamber after each shot.
  • The Latron Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13 .
