Apex Legends pro player Philip ‘Imperialhal’ Dosen thinks the CAR SMG is often looked down upon by the community despite being a “crazy” weapon.
Released back in Season 11 of Apex Legends, CAR seems to have hit the mark with the majority of players preferring the other SMGs in the arsenal.
Well, that was until Volt was placed in a care package in Defiance. Now, it seems that the community is starting to use this weapon more and realize that CAR has a place in the meta.
After being asked about the weapon, Apex pro ImperialHal repeated this with currentthinks the CAR is a “crazy” gun but since it’s not used by streamers and pros, players erroneously believe it’s a bad weapon.
ImperialHal thinks CAR is underrated
After being asked about the CAR SMG during the February 21 stream, Hal took the time to share his opinion on the weapon and its place in the meta.
While he doesn’t think it’s the most powerful gun in the game, Hal insists CAR’s low popularity stems from the fact that streamers and pros don’t use it often.
According to him, CAR is “crazy” but players will write it as bad because they don’t see their favorite creators tearing up Ratings with guns.
Not only that, it has never been considered the top weapon in the meta since its release, so it will always be the second choice gun over other picks.
So instead of picking up the R99 or the Prowler, it might be time for the CAR SMG again.
While its high rate of fire is unforgivable at times, the gun can deal massive amounts of damage at close range if you’re willing to learn its recoil pattern.
It may not be at the top of the tier list, but CAR definitely has its place in the meta, and now that Volt has been included in the Care Pack, it may finally start to get more attention.
