Nikana Prime – Melee Only Build with Flex Slo

The Nikana Prime is one of those weapons which really benefits from the Blood Rush / Body Count combo. This build is meant to take advantage of this combo to encroach on red-crit territory through a massive melee combo.

North Wind is the flex mod. It’s an all-around solid choice, along with Molten Impact and the choice depends on whether you’d like to do more damage to alloy armor and have a slow proc, or have another chance at a damaging proc (fire) and do more damage to the cloned flesh.
Buzz Kill is highly recommended against infested and for 4x CP groups. Remember, slash is king.
Organ Shatter is another great choice and will really shine once you begin to preform red-crits. If you’re likely to reset your counter like in Defense, I would not recommend Organ shatter. Bring it for Survival or maybe Excavation.
The last mod I’ll mention for that slot is Primed Reach if you like it.

Life Strike’s rank is personal preference but I find it to be an extremely valuable mod and I use it on all my melee weapons.

***
If you know you will only be using North Wind instead of any other flex mod, this build will require 0 forma. Simple place North Wind in the Vazarin (D) slot.
The same applies for Viral damage type builds.

Staticor Staticor – Max Burst DPS 41k. Sustained 32k. Non-Charged

This build is to see what’s the max burst dps the Staticor can reach, you will need Primed Heated Charge and Primed Pistol Gambit in order to get this burst dps. You can actually reach 56k burst dps by replacing Convulsion with Bore but i think Radiation is much better than Heat alone.

The Staticor has a very high critical chance and a good critical damage so make sure to use (Primed) Pistol Gambit and Target Cracker, the drawback of needing these two mods is that you won’t have so much elemental damage possibilites.

Spira Prime – Crit and Elemental Build

This is the build that I use which has all of the essential mods. Corrosive damage is made to enhance damage against armored foes during uncoordinated public matches. The Primed Heated Charge is used due to its MASSIVE damage bonus and the rest of the mods are self explanatory. Don’t be fooled by the builds which tote doing higher damage per second. Damage per second at the cost of damage per shot leads to a sharp decline in ammo economy. What good is “80K DPS BOLOR PRIME BEST DPS” when you run out of bullets in 2 seonds?
