Being able to switch skins in the prime variation of a weapon would be a nice addition.

cant you do that already? This is an unrelated example im sure but i just made Dethcube prime and have not yet owned the normal version yet my dethcube prime has access to the normal versioned skin lol?

Warframes and companions can use their unprimed skin. Weapons cannot.

thanks, a better response than the last guys lol … tbh though I feel like there isn't much difference between normal weapons and primed versions, other than a polarity or two, does damage change at all? …..ill finish the rest of this comment when someone answers that part lol.

It depends on the weapon. Some have increased damage overall, some change their IPS distribution, some have more ammo, different reload speed, accuracy changes, the obvious changes in crit and status. Some prime weapons bring a "hidden" feature, I think the Pyrana Prime gets double guns when you kill 3 or so enemies within a few seconds.

So yeah, primed versions can differ a lot, even without big damage changes. Latest example being the Baza Prime with greater falloff distance, bigger magazine and I think also faster reload, but only minor crit and status increase. Falloff and magazine stats were the annoying thinks about the normal Baza, so the primed version is very much preferable.

On frames, you're correct, they may have an extra polarity or two, and some buffed defensive/utility stats usually... otherwise, not much difference

Weapons on the other hand are generally dramatically buffed versions, always better than their non-prime counterpart, and in some cases may even feature unique mechanics that their vanilla version doesn't have (such as the Fragor Prime having a higher base combo count)
