What is an APC in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?

So, maybe you’ve been cracking into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s spectacular Ground War mode (okay, we’re honestly big fans of all the modes and we’ve got primers on them right here) and you’ve been noticing that your squadmates have been gunning around in nifty little vehicles. Well, nifty, deadly – tomato, tomato. There are a number of vehicles available to those cracking into Ground War, amongst those include APCs, also known as Armored Personnel Carriers. These allow you to actually have your teammates spawn with you (they can spawn in the carrier), and it will also have a grenade cannon to make sure that no one’s immediately picked off when they show up.

If you’re smart about using your APC, you can actually ensure that the soldiers spawning individually in said APC end up as respawn points for their whole squads. You could effectively transport way more people than one could actually fit into an APC, which we reckon is pretty damn cool. However, outside of that grenade launcher, you don’t have opportunities for someone to hop up and provide covering fire while you’re driving around, which means that your APC could easily become a sitting duck if you’re sans back up and trying to scout out a place that’s in enemy territory.

Now that you know what an APC is in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, that should make it a little easier for you to pull your weight when it comes to Ground War. Hell, it’s arguably one of the more high-stakes multiplayer modes; just think about all the people counting on you. Being able to use one effectively could mean all the difference for your squadmates, so make sure that you’ve read up. Need a hand with anything else relating to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?
