Vectis Prime has better base damage, fire rate and zoom than the standard Vectis. It also features double the magazine size. While outstripped by the Lanka for single-shot damage against Eidolons, and the Rubico Prime for consistent DPS, the Vectis Prime is still a powerful Sniper Rifle that has a place in the arsenal of most Tenno.
The Vectis Prime has a critical chance and status chance of thirty percent, but for these high impact weapons, it is always worth building critical chance and critical damage.
Vectis Prime Relics

Vectis Prime Relic Farming
These Prime Relics are earned differently to most Primes in the game. You can get them from completing missions in the Void, The Plains of Eidolon, or Orb Vallis.
For the Void mission, just load into the missions as usual through your Navigation screen. When you complete a rotation, you will have the chance to receive one of the unvaulted Relics as a reward.
For The Plains of Eidolon, visit Konzu to see the available missions, and pay close attention to the Relics they can drop, as these will rotate. For Orb Vallis, visit Fortuna and speak with Eudico. Once again, she will have a list of Bounties available, and you can earn the Relics as rewards from finishing steps in the Bounties.
You will need to grind the Bounties until you have Relics for all the parts that you need, then unlock them by running Void Fissures. Once you have all the pieces, you can build your new Prime in the Foundry.
There you go Tenno, now should have no problem farming those Vectis Prime Relics. Best of luck.
