While we discussed Respawns plans for new Apex Legends content, Titanfall 2 fans hope that CAR SMG will return has been shattered, but devs also hinted at good news about weapons coming in future seasons.
Obviously, Apex Legends has many ties to the Titanfall universe. With two previous games set on the same shared timeline, there is plenty of source material for your team to draw from.
One thing that both games share is the arsenal of weapons available to players. Many new spins on fan-favorite weapons from Titanfall 1 and 2 – such as the R301 assault rifle, Mastiff shotgun and Devotion LMG – have all entered Respawn̵
In a discussion with fans on Twitter, one of the main designers at Apex Legends broke some hearts when he confirmed that the classic CAR SMG from Titanfall 2 would not come to Apex (despite previous rumors that it would look back). But, also suggested what their team has planned for future weapons.
February 18 the dev tweeted “You know it’s a good sign when the play test is over, and you wish it was not. We have some wonderful things to cook. ”
One player asked, “Is there any chance that my beloved CAR SMG will be coming to the Apex Games soon?” Unfortunately for the special tab, the team at Respawn has no plans to add the popular Titanfall 2 weapon to Apex at any time.
“Nothing planned in the near future,” Klein replied, but also shared that “There are probably some BIL fans here at Respawn.” Keeping it cryptic, Respawn clearly does not preclude anything.
Haha sorry nothing planned in the near future. There are probably some BIL fans here at Respawn as well. I think you will like what the weapons team is doing. Some really cool stuff.

While the developers have shattered some hopes that the powerful Titanfall SMG will appear in Apex, he teased fans with a hint of what Respawn has planned for new weapons in the future: “I think you will like what the weapons team makes. Some really cool stuff. ”
In season 8, Respawn introduced 30-30 Repeater, one of several weapons that is not a transfer from Titanfall. With other weapons such as Sentinel and Havoc designed specifically for Apex, Respawn has shown that they can make fun weapons without drawing on the legacy of Titanfall.
Obviously, Respawn has perfected its craft of creating unique and interesting weapons in the Apex world, but there are still many weapons from Titanfall 1 and 2 that may look back at some point in the future – including CAR SMG.
