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