TipsEdit

  • The Vasto Prime has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash b Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Vasto Prime a prime candidate for a Desecrating Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.

TriviaEdit

  • The Vasto Prime was one of the first Prime items which had colorable gold parts. This trait is shared with the Soma Prime, Nova Prime and the Pyra Prime Syndana.
    • Since Update 15.13, several other Prime items have since had this trait implemented.
  • With the introduction of Damage 2.0, the original Vasto along with Akvasto became able to cut enemies due to its overwhelming slash damage. The Vasto Prime inherited this trait.
  • The Vasto Prime also bears a striking visual resemblance to the Enouy Revolver.
