The two elemental damage mods will help in benefiting the weapon when targeting enemies.

2. Headshot Build

Headshot Build

The Headshot Build is quite like the Critical Build, but the Augur pact of the previous build is replaced with Hydraulic Crosshairs, assuring you that there is a critical chance after dealing with a headshot.

The Headshot Build also ensures that there is an increase in the base damage of the Augur Pact. There is also a chance to do higher-tier critical hits from yellow to orange critical damage.

3. Status Build

Status Build

The status build is mainly used to retain the Hornet Strike, Lethal torrent, Barrel Diffusion, etc., replacing four elemental damage and status mods. The status build is also used to increase the overall damage and the multishot and fire rate increase.

The status build has four elemental damage and consists of status mods to build up damage with an increase in status chance.

The Status build can give a higher chance to proc status effects and damage and weaken the enemies over time.

You can also use the four elements in a rearranged order to change the combination of elements.

4. Hybrid Build

Hybrid Build

This Warframe Akbolto Build is a mixture of both the Critical Build and Status Build. The Hybrid Build is made up using Hornet Strike and Augur pact, increasing the effective damage.

The Hybrid Build consists of a Barrel Diffusion and Lethal torrent, which helps multishot and increases the elemental damage. The Prime Pistol Gambit will help increase the critical chance to more than 100%. To make a build hybrid, you will have to add 60% status chance mods of your choice.

If you want to change your build, you must either cut down Lethal Torrent or Magnum Force and try others like Bore and New Return. You can also use Hydraulic Crosshairs for the extra critical chance.

5. The Fire Rate Build

The Fire Rate Build

The Fire Rate Build is quite like the standard version, but instead of using two elemental mods, we will be using Anemic Agility and Gunslinger to obtain a very high very rate.

But this Warframe Akbolto Build is considered weaker than the standard version. To obtain more fire rates, you will have to complete all the assassination targets. It can also be used to destroy the mob by shooting a lot of projectiles into the group.

Final Words

The Akbolto Prime is a very deadly weapon and considered perfect for a secondary gun.

It has the lightest critical chance stats in the game. That is why it is straightforward to obtain 100% critical damage with this weapon.

It ultimately depends upon the user which build he wants to use. The outcome is always to deal damage because of its stats. You can also try to develop and make your build.
