Characteristics

This weapon deals primarily Puncture damage.

Advantages:

  • Deals mostly damage, making this weapon very effective against Grineer without any elemental mods.
  • Has much higher damage than the standard Latron.
  • High critical hit chance and damage.
  • Has V and Bar polarity slot.
  • Very ammo efficient.
  • High accuracy.
  • Tied for second-highest status chance of all primary weapons.

Disadvantages:

  • Like the normal version it features a slow base rate of fire.
  • Semi-Auto fire trigger.
  • Can only be obtained from the Void.
  • Reduced effectiveness at close range with groups of enemies unless Punch Through mod is used.
  • Moderate recoil can prevent consistent strikes to weak points, forcing slower fire for better accuracy.
  • Like all semi auto weapons, a lower frame rate leads to a lower fire rate.
  • Requires 10 Orokin Cells to craft.

Notes

  • Latron Prime used to have an approximate damage of 45, prior to Update 12.

Trivia

  • 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).
