Prime Legionaries (Latin: legionarius, pl. legionarii) are the most experienced of the lowest ranked members of Caesar's Legion.


Prime Legionaries are the Legion's primary infantry force. They are most commonly found in Legion-controlled areas such as The Fort, Cottonwood Cove, and Nelson. Prime legionaries are distinguished from Recruit legionaries by the crimson color of their armor, as well as a unique visor that extends over their eyes as part of their covered helmets. Being the primary ground force, most of these warriors are equipped with weapons such as machetes, or throwing spears, they can occasionally spawn with higher-level weapons such as Hunting rifles, cowboy repeaters and 10mm submachine gun's. They are usually found in the eastern Mojave, traveling with a squad of Legionaries that may include higher-level warriors such as a veteran legionary or a Decanus.
