This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.


  • High base damage.
  • Good accuracy.
  • Ammo efficient.
  • Good critical chance.
  • High status chance.
  • Has a Madurai Pol polarity.


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


  • 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)


  • Take advantage of your slower firing rate to plan your shots. Both the Lex and Lex Prime are optimal long-range pistols.
  • 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.


  • 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.
  • It is the icon for the Secondary weapons category in the Foundry.
