There’s a couple reasons the Prowler reigned supreme in Split 2. One reason is that this is a weapon that rewards consistent fire, something pro players are pretty good at to say the least. Secondly, it’s fantastic for short range fights so it’s an invaluable weapon for those crazy packed end zones ALGS is famous for.

On top of great aim fraggers in ALGS typically use a controller, which means they also can benefit from a slight helping hand from aim assist.

The final reason for the Prowler's popularity is that the R-99 is in the crafter, meaning it’s a bit harder and more time consuming to use, making the Prowler a better option. In fact, the R-99 remaining in the top five is a testament to its popularity and viability.
