Prowler Review - Is It Good?

The Prowler is an SMG, but when you factor in the Selectfire Receiver hop-up, it essentially becomes a powerful assault rifle that deals enough damage to kill a Legend in three pulls of the trigger when wearing full armour.

When using the Prowler, character movement remains fairly fast, too – but if you’re firing in bursts you’ll need to be mindful that you only get four bursts without an extended mag.
