Heatwave Lore?

I’m not deep into the lore of Forerunner history and technology, but when first introduced to the Heatwave, the weapon never struck me as belonging to that faction. The styling and even the how weapon reloads is unlike the Forerunner weapons we encountered in previous titles. So I am wondering, could the Heatwave be a relic of the humans from their “Golden age,” mellinias ago, during their war with the Forerunners? So in a weird way it’s like ancient but high tech at the same time?

Maybe the banished somehow reversed engineered some forerunner scatter shots?

It would be a kool idea, that’s for sure. I’ve always wanted to see the ancient human tech and lore explored in the games.

It’s possible, though, I am in favor for Jiralhanae weapons staying projectile based as I believe it speaks to their character. Anyway, it will be interesting to explore new lore on this new Halo ring.
