This weapon deals primarily Puncture damage.


  • Second highest Critical Chance of all weaponries.
  • Completely Silent weapon.
  • Can hit multiple enemies in a line (caused by flying dead bodies and not the arrow).
  • Arrows arcs much less in comparison with the Paris and the speed is much faster, about equal to the Dread.
  • Charged shots have innate Punch Through.
  • Pinpoint accuracy when aiming RMB.


  • Frequent reloads and charge time renders Paris Prime ill-suited for close-quarters.
  • Uses sniper ammo, the rarest of the ammunition pickups.

Weapon Loadouts

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • Always aim for the head.
  • A rank 1 Arrow Mutation is more than enough to keep your ammo topped off.
  • Bows are very weak at low levels, but have extremely high possible damage in one shot when fully modded. It is recommended to use an Orokin Catalyst to super charge.
  • Utilize its amazing critical hit chance. The Paris Prime boasts an extremely high base critical chance, being at 45%. 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.
  • Charged shots have innate Punch Through, (they will not be blocked by thin cover or shields.
  • Use the Team Ammo Restore instead of the Arrow Mutation mod to gain more mod capacity.
  • Use Speed Trigger to increase responsiveness when you get used to charged aim with a bow. It is also more effective than Fast Hands in terms of increasing DPS.
  • Arrows have travel time and arc. Practice shooting at distant moving targets to learn how far to lead shots.
  • Press Reload (Default R) to cancel drawing an arrow and avoid unnecessary wasting of ammunition.
  • 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.
  • Thunderbolt is great startup for bows, but will lose its efficiency dramatically when a player has high ranked damage mods.
  • Arrows have a huge amount of momentum, allowing you 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.


  • The Paris Prime uses the same quiver as the Paris.
  • Unlike the Paris, which is a compound bow, the Paris Prime seems to be a recurve bow.
  • Currently, the only other Prime weapon that doesn't require Orokin Cells is the Fang Prime.
  • Like any other Prime weapon, you can customize every color except the golden frame.
