What Is the CAR SMG in Apex Legends?

The CAR SMG is finally coming to Apex Legends, after months of teasing and speculation. The Titanfall crossover weapon makes its debut in Respawn's battle royale during Apex Legends Season 11, which launches November 11, just after the Monsters Within wraps up.

The CAR SMG is known in Titanfall for being deadly at close range thanks to its particularly high rate of fire. While the gun's specifics in Apex Legends are still vague, it sounds as if the CAR SMG will function largely the same.

What Is the CAR SMG in Apex Legends?

"A flexible weapon, the C.A.R. SMG is the gun for when you’re ready to make a stand and become the last Legend still standing," Respawn said in describing the weapon.

However it ends up appearing in the game, the CAR SMG will likely be similar to other SMGs, namely, it excels at close range and in tight quarters, but has significantly less utility the further you are from your target.

In other words, it might not be the ideal choice for Apex's new Storm Point map, assuming it releases in Season 11 as rumors suggest.
