  • This weapon was introduced on January 30, 2013.
  • An update on February 5th, 2013 nerfed the Boltor to have 12.5. Soon after it was given a slight buff to 18.0 damage per shot, down from 25 on its initial release.

  • On April 12, 2013, an update addressed the issue of frame-rate affecting the fire-rate of weapons and several weapons have had their baseline values changed. This update reduced the firing rate value of the Boltor from 11.7 to 8.8.
