Warframe fans have been asking for the Akvasto Prime for a while not but I’m not sure if this is exactly what they wished for. The Akvasto Prime is a minor iteration on the Vasto Prime and I would call it a side-grade at best rather than an upgrade.
The weapon sports the same critical chance, critical multiplier, status chance and exact same damage values and layout so the build will be mostly similar as with the Vasto Prime with one major exception, Recoil. Not only did the magazine size increase to double but it feels like the recoil is doubled as-well making that increased fire rate hardly usable unless we sacrifice a mod slot for Steady Hands which will make the weapon a lot more manageable.
To make a long story short, the Akvasto Prime is a side-grade from the Vasto Prime with a larger magazine, better fire rate but also increased recoil and reload time. Builds will be the same, stat priority will be the same and overall it’s mostly the same weapon. A subjective added benefit would be the cool factor of dual wielding guns, whatever floats your boat.
