Sample Builds

Given its large base damage and its unique firing mechanic the Tigris Prime is capable of dealing a large amount of damage with one or two shots.

It may need to be frequently reloaded as it only has 2 shots in its barrel but it can kill most enemies be it a single enemy or a group of them with one hit.

Below are a few sample builds:

Critical Damage Build


Our Tigris Prime Critical Build mods consist of Primed Point Blank/Point Blank for overall damage and 2 elemental damage mods for an elemental combination.

Adding Primed Ravage and Blunderbuss increase its critical stats for higher damage.

This build also includes multishot by adding Hell’s Chamber and Vigilante Armaments.

Seeking Fury has also been added to the build for a greater punch through to have the bullets penetrate multiple enemies.

The focus of this build is to deal large amounts of critical damage bases on adding up a higher critical chance and boosting the critical multiplier.


Status Build


Keeping majority of the previous build we replace some mods with the 4 elemental damage and status mods to increase the status chance of the Tigris Prime.

This allows causes multiple status effects and also does a great deal of damage.

Status effects can occur and since there is a decent amount of punch through, multiple enemies may be hit and each can proc a status effect.


Hyrid Build


Combining the two previous builds we go for a critical damage and status effect build which has a great chance to deal both.

Critical hits may occur dealing great amounts of damage and with the high status chance, different status effects may occur leading to even more damage.

This build focuses on dealing as much damage as possible from different sources of damage, concentrating on consistently damaging the enemies.


These are not the only builds available for the Tigris Prime, but they are pretty useful in many situations.

There are tons of ways to mod this weapon and it all can vary depending on the user and their choice of mods.


With its initial base damage, the Tigris Prime packs a punch.

Not only is the damage insanely high, but it elemental damage scales great with it which allows it to do great amounts of physical and elemental damage.

It may have a drawback of only 2 shots per reload but when properly modded a single shot should be good enough to take out an enemy or even a group of enemies.

This weapon has great potential in taking out almost any enemy, especially when modded well for the occasion.
