An artifact of exquisite beauty. A weapon of deadly purpose.

The Tigris Prime is the primed variant of the Tigris shotgun. Featuring the highest base damage of any non-Archwing weapon, it is balanced out by its low magazine size and damage falloff.

Tigris Prime was added along with Nekros Prime and Galatine Prime in Hotfix: The Silver Grove 3.

On June 5th, 2018, it was announced that Tigris Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on June 19th, 2018. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • Because of the mechanics of shotgun status chance, reaching 100% status chance results in many more status effects than 90% or even 99% would.
  • Due to the weapon's low magazine size and tight spread, consider using Seeking Force and/or Seeking Fury in order to deal with large groups more effectively.
  • Chilling Reload can also help to speed up the weapon's frequent reloads.
  • All Tigris variants can reach 4 shells in the magazine by combining a max rank Ammo Stock with a rank 1 Burdened Magazine.
    • Due to rounding, increasing Burdened Magazine to a higher level will never give any more than 4 shells, but it will still increase the reload speed penalty.
  • Aiming down sights will increase weapon accuracy and decrease shotgun spread, making the Tigris more effective at medium ranges.
