The Lex Prime is a powerful, accurate pistol that has a low fire rate and clip size. Very efficient at long range.

Lex Prime is the Primed version of the Lex. It is effectively a straight upgrade to the Lex, balanced out by its resource requirements and rare components.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.

Advantages:

  • Very high base damage.
  • High Puncture b Puncture damage makes it very effective against the Grineer.
  • Very accurate.
  • Very good ammunition efficiency.
  • Good critical chance and damage.
  • High status chance.
  • Has a V polarity, useful for mods like Hornet Strike, Lethal Torrent, etc.
  • Compared to the Lex:
    • Higher overall damage (85.0 vs. 69.0)
    • Higher fire rate (2.1 rounds/s vs. 1.1 rounds/s)
    • Higher crit chance (20.0% vs. 15.0%)
    • Higher status chance (20.0% vs. 10.0%)
    • Larger magazine (8 vs. 6)

Disadvantages:

  • Slow rate of fire.
  • High recoil if fired quickly.
  • Slow reload speed.
  • Has low Slash b Slash and Impact b Impact damage.

NotesEdit

  • For some the Lex Prime's larger magazine adequately addresses one of the Lex's shortcomings.

TipsEdit

  • Take advantage of your slower firing rate to plan your shots. Both the Lex and Lex Prime are optimal long-range pistols.
  • Build upon the strengths of the Lex Prime (damage, critical chance, status chance) and learn to compensate for some of its weaknesses (fire rate, recoil, reload speed, magazine size) without mods.
    • Modding for all of the weaknesses could reduce the potential of building on the Lex Prime's strengths.
  • Alternatively, with maxed out rate-of-fire mods and maxed out reload mods, the Lex Prime can work as a close quarters pistol. However, beware of the high recoil when shooting it fast.
  • As with the standard Lex, Steady Hands can be used to counteract this weapon's high recoil.
    • The effects of the recoil are eliminated by pacing one's shots.
    • Steady Hands however is still very useful to quickly place follow up shots onto the target which will be necessary in high level where even fully modded, the enemy is capable of surviving at least a single hit from Lex/Lex Prime to the head, this is especially crucial if the weapon is not modded for close combat.
  • The Lex Prime pairs well with close quarter or otherwise less accurate primary weapons, to cover ranged enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • A large amount of the weapon is animated, complete with an exchanged magazine and blow-back slide. This makes the Lex Prime one of the few pistols with firing animations for a conventional weapon.
  • The Lex Prime seems to resemble a Glock styled handgun, sharing the theme of 'realistic weaponry' with it's unprimed counterpart.
  • It is the icon for selecting the secondary weapons in the Foundry.
