The Combat Advanced Round SMG, also called C.A.R. or CAR, is a sub machine gun introduced in Season 11.svg Season 11 that utilizes both Heavy Rounds.svg Heavy Rounds and Light Rounds.svg Light Rounds.

The C.A.R. is compatible with two Extended Mags, Extended Heavy Mag.svg Heavy and Extended Light Mag.svg Light, although only one of them can be equipped at any given time. Regardless, the magazine gets extended even if the ammo type currently in use doesn't match the Extended Mag type.

When a C.A.R. spawns, it is always surrounded by Heavy Rounds.svg Heavy Rounds, its primary ammo type.

Trivia[]

  • Part of the C.A.R. SMG icon appeared in an UI asset showing the weapon's stock in the buy menu for Arenas Icon.svg Arenas, indicating that the weapon might've already had an icon stylized in the Apex style in Season 9.svg Season 9.[1] The icon can be seen in a video showing how to upgrade weapons in Arenas that got posted on the official website.
  • The C.A.R. had a defined recoil pattern way before its release.[2][3]
