5 forma, no primed mods setup. due to kohmak’s unique spool up, the least amount of damage per magazine is 110k (2*80*692) and the maximum 553k (10*80*692), + the innate 1m punch through, make for a viable crowd control weapon. For corpus, switch out the third elemental mod for an expel corpus, and for grineer, move around the second, third and fourth mod around to get viral + radiation
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?
U can replace the Anemic Agiliti with Maim. Use it to сhop your enemies. You can also use viral damage or corrosive.
Zhuge build meant to be a good general purpose build for most content. Elemental combo doesn’t really matter, just use whatever combo you feel comfortable using for each enemy type
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.
