Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • Aim for the head as crit-based weapons benefit extra from headshots due to a bonus multiplier.
  • Use Point Strike to take advantage of Paris Prime's extremely high base critical chance.
    • A level 4 Point Strike is sufficient enough to boost the Paris Prime's critical chance to 100%, making every shot a critical hit.
    • A maxed Point Strike will give 112.5% critical chance, so a 12.5% chance for red crits.
  • Staying in cover while charging will help to reduce damage taken.
  • Bows are most useful if you can kill the target in one shot., thus it is recommended to have an Orokin Catalyst to super charge the bow.
  • Lead targets both horizontally and vertically at greater distances in order to compensate for projectile travel time.
  • Maintaining a charge at all times can make engaging a group of enemies easier.
    • Charging can be cancelled without releasing the arrow using the reload button (Press the reload button while holding fire).
    • All "charge weapons" (except Angstrum and Opticor) are capable of holding their charge during a sprint.
    • As long as the user starts charging a shot, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting.
    • Using elevators and opening co-op doors does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will.
    • Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.
  • A rank 1 Arrow Mutation is usually more than enough to keep ammo topped off.
  • Use Speed Trigger to increase responsiveness when you get used to charged shots with bows. It is more effective than Fast Hands in terms of increasing DPS.
  • Enemies killed by Bows will be rag-dolled with the corpse acting as a projectile doing the same damage as the weapon. This can be used to kill multiple enemies with one shot.

NotesEdit

  • Enemies will notice missed arrows but hit arrows are silent.
  • Can't be drawn while using a zipline, wall running, or sliding down a wall.
  • If drawn and you initiate a wall run you can still fire while on the wall, but not draw the string back. (possible bug?)
  • Arrows have a large amount of momentum, allowing players to pin enemies to walls. However, a dead body will not lose its momentum if it hits a closed door, so the body will fly through it as soon as the door opens.

BugsEdit

  • Using Angstrum with Paris causes them to share their ammo pools, with the max ammo defined by the Angstrum's max ammo.

TriviaEdit

  • The Paris Prime uses the same quiver as the Paris, just altered with golden accents.
  • Currently, the only other Prime weapon that doesn't require Orokin Cells is the Fang Prime.
