Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Prowler is based on two "personal defense weapons" (PDWs) from real life: the FN P90 and the Magpul PDR-C. It also a homage to Seburo, Masamune Shirow's fictional arms manufacturer from Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed.
  • The Prowler also bears a striking similarity to the MA5 series of assault rifles form the Halo universe; the triangular ammo counter and bull-pup frame are the most noticeable aspects that both weapons share. More so, the maximum magazine size of the Prowler when fitted with a Level 3 Extended Heavy Mag comes close to that of the current iteration of the MA5 series from Halo 5: Guardians; at 35 rounds and 36 rounds, respectively.
