    Carro is a defensive item, you don't use it to deal damage or get kills, most use it against speeders.

    Like if a speeder is harassing you, you hit them with a carronade then you a heavy hitting weapon to make them leave

    "Slow by 70% for 4 seconds" Slow turret rotation, etc.

    It's a defensive option for shooter because they have about a million red slots and can spare one for carronade. Effectiveness is highly dependent on infamy level. If you're below 3000 and see 5 shooter teams spamming Mortars, it's probably not a good choice.
    After 3000 though, there are a lot of speeders and most of them run the same strategy. Flare, stun , explosive cannon then run. Repeat.

    The run part is where carronade comes in and slow down perks stops them from running away. You hit them with carronade straight after the stun wears off then unload your other weapons on them.

    Carronade is mostly like a shotgun in this game. It’s good when we are talking about close range weapon. That’s why people here are saying that it’s good against speeders.. most of them get really close to you to do some damage, famous “hit and run” thing. If crew is updated correctly, you can also add more projectiles to the shot, causing more damage. For shooters, and defenders, it can be a defensive weapon against them. For speeders and enfos, can be the mainly aggressive weapon.

    I don’t recall any “combo” with carronade. But if you want to get good with it, try the epic damage perks and crew stuff like “turrent slower”, more projectiles and range.

    I run it on my defender and it helps me stop people from abusing my lack of speed. Doesn't totally prevent it but it helps. Damage and cooldown is pretty good.

    Also imo there is one CC that you can get without a yellow slot... therefore you should probably get it if you can...
