The Hystrix Prime is one of Khora Prime’s signature weapons. The weapon has a high critical chance and a good critical damage multiplier combined with a solid rate of fire. The unique aspect of the weapon is that it can apply Toxin, Heat, Electrical, or Cold damage, depending on what the player wants. They can switch between the damage types using the alternate fire.
In this guide, we will show you how to get your hands on the Hystrix Prime Relics and the best places to farm for them throughout the game.
Hystrix Prime Relics
The important thing about farming for Hystrix Prime Relics is knowing what relics you need. The following Relics contain the various components you need to build the weapon and the rarity of the component.
- Blueprint – Axi K9 – Uncommon
- Barrel – Neo G4 – Common
- Receiver – Meso H3 – Rare
Hystrix Prime Relic Farming
You can earn various Relic types by doing different activities. These are some of the best activities, in my opinion, to earn each type of Relic.
- Lith – Hepit in the Void. A quick Capture practically guarantees a Lith Relic upon completion. You spend a short amount of time in this mission.
- Meso – Io on Jupiter. A Defense mission, the A rotation has a very high chance of dropping a Meso Relic. Do ten waves, then leave and repeat for Meso farming.
- Neo – Xini on Eris. An interception mission. The A rotation is a guaranteed Neo Relic.
- Axi – Xini on Eris. The B and C rotations on this Interception will drop an Axi Relic. This area allows you to farm Neo and Axi relics at the same time.
Once you have them all collected, take your Relics into Void Fissure missions through the main Navigation screen to open them. It shouldn’t take you long to track down all the Relics you need to get Hystrix Prime. Don’t forget to go to the recruiting tab in the chat and find groups that are trying to open the Relics to find the same pieces you are, as it will dramatically cut down on your farming time when opening them. This is especially useful when trying to unlock the rarer components, as everyone in the group can run the same Relic infused to the best level.
