Apex Legends Factory Issue C.A.R Skin
March 3, 2022: Updated to include new information on weapon skins.


Weapons are a key part of Apex Legends. After all, how else are you going to eliminate other squads so that you can become the champion? Over the lifespan of the game, many new weapons have been introduced. This means that you now have plenty of options when it comes to finding or buying a weapon.

The weapons themselves are separated into several different categories. There are Sniper and Marksman Rifles for those of you who prefer engaging in ranged battles. Then there are the Pistols and SMGs for those of you who enjoy the thrill of close-quarters combat. There's one SMG in particular that has had a big impact on the game.

C.A.R. Review

The C.A.R is a very handy gun to have in both Battle Royale mode and Arenas mode. The high rate of fire makes it perfect for those frantic, close-combat battles. Also, the ability to use both light and heavy ammo makes it much easier to find ammunition on the battlefield. The only downside that we could find is that the recoil is quite high, but no more so than any of the other SMGs that you will find in Apex. It doesn't take an awful lot of time to adjust to the C.A.R, but it can be a bit troublesome if you're not used to it.

The C.A.R SMG has definitely made its mark as one of the best SMGs in Apex Legends. If you want to pair the SMG with a powerful ranged weapon, check out the Sentinel Sniper Rifle. It's a powerful Sniper that is dangerous without any attachments, but lethal with the right ones. Also, if you're lucky enough, you may even find a Kraber .50-Cal sniper in a care package drop.
