Apex Legends Factory Issue Prowler SMG Skin
March 3, 2022: Updated to include new information on skins.


Apex Legends is a free-to-play online battle royale game. As a duo or a trio, you can dive into the Battle Royale mode to fight it out to be crowned Apex Champion. Alternatively, you can enter the 3vs3 PvP Arena matches where you battle it out to be the last squad standing.

In Battle Royale, you need to scramble through loot bins and care packages to stock up on weapons. In Arenas, you get to purchase your weapons before each round. In either mode, your weapon choice will be very important. Fortunately, there are plenty of different guns that you can choose to use to take down your enemies.

Prowler Review

The Prowler is an SMG, but there's something that feels a little bit strange about using a burst SMG. When you're using the Prowler, your movement isn't impacted as it is with other weapons. This means it's great to use when you're running from area to area.

However, as you’re firing in bursts, you’ll need to be mindful that you only get four bursts without an extended mag. If you're caught in a small area with another squad, then the burst setting could make you an easy target. That being said, if you pair it with another weapon that has a fast fire rate, then the Prowler is still a very good gun.

The Prowler SMG is just one of many SMGs available in Apex Legends. If you want to check out another powerful SMG that has held its title as a fan favourite, take a look at our Alternator Guide. Customising your weapon is one of the things you can do in the game. Take a look at our guide to find out how to change the colour of your crosshairs to make a custom reticle.
