Characteristics

Advantages:

  • Hits up to 5 targets with attacks.
  • Relatively high attack speed. Faster normal attack than Orthos.
  • Long range attacks with a wide radius, even wider than the regular Orthos.
  • Slide attacks deals 100 damage and full AoE.
  • Large jump attack AoE that knocks down enemies.

Disadvantages:

  • Requires ten Orokin Cells to craft.
  • Can only be obtained from the Void and is therefore difficult to acquire.
  • When swinging you will be reduced to a walking pace, starting on the third combo animation.
  • Normal attacks have awkwardly placed swing hitboxes which vary with each swing animation, making it more difficult to hit enemies.
  • Doesn't have momentum (stagger resistance) like other heavy weapons.

Notes

  • The Orthos Prime's Ability polarity for its Stance slot makes it ideal for slotting in Shimmering Blight immediately. While the Orthos Prime can also use Bleeding Willow, its Bar polarity will reduce the number of its bonus mod capacity, unless changed using Forma.

Trivia

  • This weapon used to have the same stats as normal Orthos. It was buffed in Update 9.5.2.
  • Note that the end-blades are not mirrors of each other and seem to have shapes that could fit together
  • Rubidium is an alkali metal element that is very soft, ductile and silvery-white in color.
    • Rubidium does not appear to be a very useful material for blades, as it is not hard enough to scratch other materials with its Brinell hardness of only 0.216MPa compared to Iron's rating of 490MPa. Being ductile, it is also easily bent, so it is unlikely to keep its shape when striking another object.
    • Furthermore, Rubidium, as an alkali metal, explodes when coming it comes into contact with water. It has also been known to spontaneously combust in air.
    • Despite the Orthos Prime's description, Rubidium is heavier than Iron, by ~53%.
