Squad APC

In Squad, there are a couple of APCs that you can take advantage of. The function of an APC is to transport troops. In this Squad APC guide, we are going to go over the pros and cons of each APC that you can use in the game.

APC stands for Armored personnel carrier. This is an armored vehicle that can take some damage but is not as resilient as tanks. It can take small firearm damage and protect your troops. Using APCs to move your allies is much faster than on foot.
