Field Manual

Design Edit

The MB 4WD is a rugged, civilian four-wheel drive, two-door off-road capable SUV.

It has very good handling while driving on rough terrain, and can accelerate rapidly both on and off-road. In addition, its compact size and light weight allows it to be airlifted by aircraft as well; either internally or via slingloading. The MB 4WD itself does not retain any armament, but all passengers are able to fire their own weapons out of it.

Just like its non-SUV counterpart, the MB 4WD is a civilian vehicle and naturally does not possess armour plating. Some variants even have both passenger doors and the roll cage removed, which means that the driver and passengers are equally vulnerable to small arms fire.

The MB 4WD has a seating capacity of up to four passengers. This includes the driver, and up to three passengers who sit on the front-right seat and in the rear.

Variants Edit

  • MB 4WD: Baseline transport-only variant. Is unarmed and can carry up to three passengers at a time.
  • MB 4WD (AT): Armed with a 73 mm recoilless rifle that is mounted onto a pintle fixed to the top of the roll cage. Can only transport two passengers at a time.
  • MB 4WD (LMG): Identical to the AT variant but is armed with a LIM-85 5.56 mm light machine gun instead. Transports the same number of passengers as the AT variant.

Camouflage Edit

  • Black: Pattern-less black paint scheme.
  • Blue: Pattern-less blue paint scheme.
  • Green: Pattern-less black paint scheme.
  • Orange: Pattern-less orange paint scheme.
  • Red: Pattern-less red paint scheme.
  • White: Pattern-less flat white paint scheme.
  • Brown: Pattern-less dark brown paint scheme.
  • Olive: Pattern-less olive green paint scheme.
  • IDAP: Flat white paint scheme with additional livery in the form of IDAP logos and signage. Used exclusively by IDAP aid workers.

Trivia Edit

  • The MB 4WD appears to be based on the real-life "Wrangler" SUV designed by Jeep, a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.
  • Screenshots of the MB 4WD were initially shown via a tweet in early April 2016. Details of this can be read in SITREP #00151.
  • Leftover text strings (String name: str_a3_cfgvehicles_offroad_02_armed_base_f0) indicate that the MB 4WD was supposedly meant to have featured armed variants on Apex's release (like the Offroad). This is further supported by the fact that the MB 4WD's classname was specifically suffixed as being "unarmed".
    • The original armed model no longer exists in the game files, which suggests that this sub-variant was scrapped early in development.
    • The release of the Tanks DLC would eventually see the addition of two armed variants. It's unknown as to whether these new models are the same as their initial pre-release Apex models, however.
