TriviaEdit

  • The Latron Prime was added into the game in Update 8.0, becoming one of the first prime weapons to be available to non-founders.

Latron Prime was again available from December 6 2016 to January 3 2017 as part of the Fire and Ice Prime Vault.
  • The Latron Prime and Reaper Prime were available after Update 8, although DE had previously mentioned not releasing the weapons. 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 animation shows the Warframe pulling a lever (golden bar forward of the trigger) to open the chamber of the rifle before it is closed again as the weapon is reloaded.
  • The Latron Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
