Nothing gets meta heads and battle royale fanatics excited like a new gun, and Apex Legends season 11 has brought a shiny new SMG to the table to get everyone’s mouths watering. The C.A.R SMG joins popular close range powerhouses like the R-99 and Prowler, but can it stand up next to these classics?
