*ahem*This is true for just about every weapon that is AP/A-Ignore, wait for the damage rework. That said I still fully appreciate the Boar Prime right now, not as much as my Swraith but that's a given. >:3 Then again I still take my Vipers out on t3 defenses.

 

It's a nice weapon and I disagree with your sentiment.

It's not about AP/A-Ignore or not, suck is suck, Accurate, DPS, DPH, Ammo effect all suck---totally at the "rubbish zone"

Even vipers have dps adv.

But the Boar Prime? crap

Boar prime is strong but the critical mods for shotguns sucks hard thats why unlike the soma his stats are REALLY BAD but scales soo good with the rifle critical mods.

Accurate<----it make Boar super suck, more unaccurate than the hand cannon prime if it auto fire more than 3 shots

Huehuehuehuehue.

 

Seriously though, of course the Boar Prime is going to suck. Just like Latron Prime. Just like Braton Prime. If the core weapon isn't viable in the long run, you can bet a significant amount of money on that the Prime version won't be either.

But the Braton prime is sexy.

Why would I want to play a mission with a good weapon when I can use a sexy one.

Braton Prime is actually pretty good.

That is it. So is the Boar Prime (still trying to get the parts, argh!). Just saying that you can't expect the Prime version of a "weak" weapon to be anything but.

True. I was actually very interested in getting the Braton prime, but as I'm moving into harder mission I've sort of gone off it. Plus I've learned that most primes I've researched are only better in little ways. Braton prime having a better base damage and bigger clip compared to the braton. Not really worth it. So yes, you're very correct.

Its a great weapon, just like boar, and stop comparing it to strun w, its like comparing snipertron vandal to paris prime, its the same category but it has so much differences

 

But the Boar isn't only inferior to the Strun Wraith. I made that post in jest. Just about every other Shotgun beats it.

It's a slight upgrade of the original version.

 

It's still very competitive with other shotguns

like Sobek for instance: same trigger, faster reload but with less clip size, less damage but more fire rate and better scaling (crit+crit damage).

And Sobek is very close to the Hek dps wise, so...

 

Don't take the Strun Wraith into account when comparing, it's an aberration of balance anyway.

 

Otherwise, pretty solid shotgun, looks cool, and a good variety of possible builds.

A polarity slot would have been nice though

 

One of the few well balanced Primes, if not the only one.

Paris Prime disagrees. :P

 

But what you said makes some sense. The only prime weapon which can go all the way to late game is probably only the Paris and Orthos. Others are sadly, mostly ornamental.

 

On the subject, I don't think Boar Prime is that bad. Judging from the stats, I think it is comparable and probably be superior over the Sobek. Which is pretty much the best shotgun before Strun Wraith.

I'll just leave this here:

Lets do a numerical comparison.

They're both crit-based guns so I'll be using the following build:

  • Accelerated Blast
  • Blaze
  • Blunderbuss
  • Flechette
  • Hell's Chamber
  • Point Blank
  • Ravage
  • Shotgun Spazz

As you can see they aren't that far off, and the Boar Prime actually has better burst DPS.

Note: if you think it's weak try building it for crit.
