Civilian Cars are the only functioning cars that were used by the civilians on the Lingshan Islands.
Civilian cars are pick-up trucks that have a variety of colors including black, blue, green, grey, red, silver, teal, and even a police variation.
Civilian cars are an abundant source of transportation and can be used if there is no other type of transportation available. The fact that it has no distinctive coloring of any faction makes it easier to infiltrate areas behind enemy lines.
The civilian car is the weakest out of all the vehicles and be destroyed easily with bursts of gunfire and/or ramming it into an object. The car also has no offensive weaponry.
In singleplayer, these vehicles are seen in various civilian villages under occupation by the KPA, though the KPA forces drive LTVs and never use the Civilian Cars. The cars are considerably weaker, carriying no armament and less useful than LTVs, which are also common. The civilian cars can reach normal speeds of around 40 mph (64 km/h) and, strangely, have a booster allowing them speeds into the mid-60's.
In multiplayer, they appear as free vehicles, and are popular due to being free and easy to find. They are suitable for quickly deploying troops behind friendly line as they are fast and easy to find. They may also be used to infiltrate enemy line as they do not have distinctive color of either factions.
|C4||Placing C4 on a civilian car will destroy it immediately. Cloaking and waiting for the car to come near and lay the C4 on the car will also work. However, you may wish to save them for more dangerous vehicles.|
|Grenades||A well placed Frag grenade or Rifle Grenade will destroy a car instantly.|
|Gunfire||The car has very little protection and gunfire will destroy it fairly quickly. Gunfire could also blow out the tires and kill the occupants.|
|Mines||Using mines is straightforward so long as the car's path is known. However, you may wish to save them for more dangerous vehicles.|
|Missiles||Any type of missile will destroy a car. However, you may wish to save missiles for more dangerous vehicles.|
|MOAR||Like most vehicles, the MOAR will instantly freeze the car, which allows any damage to shatter it.|
|Tank cannons||A single hit will destroy the car, but it may be an overkill. So, you may use the other weapons like tank mounted machineguns instead.|
|Punches||Strength punches can flip the car or blow out tires, but too many punches will cause the car to explode and likely kill you.|
- Pickup civilian cars strongly resemble the Chevrolet S-10. The wrecked and undrivable hatchbacks are mostly based on the Volkswagen Golf Mk2.
