See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • It's advised to always aim for the head.
  • A rank 1 Arrow Mutation is more than enough to keep the 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.
  • This bow has an 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).
  • Speed Trigger should be used to increase responsiveness when the player gets 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. Practicing shooting at distant moving targets is good to learn how far to lead shots.
  • The Reload button (Default R) cancels drawing an arrow and avoids unnecessary wasting of ammunition.
  • Sliding when the player is about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful to keep the 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 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.


  • The Paris Prime uses the same quiver as the Paris.
  • Unlike the Paris, which has the appearance of a compound bow, the Paris Prime seems to emulate the shape of a decurve 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.
