Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS

Summary

The Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS was added to the game during the Lunar New Year 2016 Update. The Camaro SS is available for 6,250 tokens.

The Camaro SS is a high-end Class A Sports Car.

Tuning

The Camaro SS is one of the most flexible cars for Multiplayer in the entire game, being capable of competing at a variety of ranks (though it does have an optimal rank zone). The Camaro SS has a very low starting rank, a high ending rank, and a very high raw top speed stat. With an upgrade rank weighting of just 45% for raw top speed, the Camaro SS can become faster than the Hommage until ranks past 1500.

The Camaro SS can be used from ranks 1250 to 1300, where it will have a small chance of defeating cars like the Cobra and BMW M2. The Camaro SS can also be used from ranks 1500 to 1800, where it will have a small chance of defeating cars like the Hommage, Vulcan and MP4-25. However, it is most optimal from ranks 1300 to 1500, where it generally faces competition from MP4/8s, Sagaris', Holdens, and Estoques. At those ranks, the Camaro SS also faces some minor competition from the Cobra and BMW M2, which are optimal below rank 1300, and from the Hommage and Vulcan, which are optimal above rank 1500.

Performance

Despite possessing nearly unrivalled speed at low ranks (only worse than the SLK SE) and an excellent nitro efficiency of 7/10/15, the Camaro SS doesn't give guaranteed victories in Multiplayer. This is because the Camaro SS has many massive downsides, including what is arguably the worst acceleration in the game, as well as bad handling and drifting.

Even though the Camaro SS can actually defeat most cars on most maps apart from Dubai and Sector 8, including short maps like London with 2-3 laps, the Camaro SS can easily be "sabotaged" by faster-accelerating cars, such as the MP4/8 or Sagaris. A knockdown at the start of the race could easily result in a loss for the Camaro SS, especially on a short track.

Additionally, the Camaro SS' horrendous drifting and handling (with acceleration still being an issue) can affect the Camaro SS' performance throughout the rest of the race. For example, the hairpin turns on Azure Coast can easily slow the Camaro SS down.

Strategy

The Camaro SS is best suited for very long tracks or simple tracks with many laps.

In order to accelerate as quickly as possible, use of level-3 nitro is recommended; Extra Tanks can help with this. In order to avoid being knocked down at the start, activating the brakes at the beginning of the race can help, somewhat. Also, swerving out of the way can help.

Perks

The Camaro SS, despite being a very rewarding car in Multiplayer if used correctly, is generally not the best car for Multiplayer. Because of a recent glitch where the Camaro SS was on sale for Credits for a few days, many people now own the Camaro SS. It is now much more common for poor matchmaking to occur between Camaro SS drivers at different ranks (eg. a 1390 Camaro SS being matched against a 1450 Camaro SS).

In fact, the Camaro SS causes problems in Multiplayer for both itself and virtually every other car, between ranks 1300-1500. At rank 1500, the Camaro SS usually loses (by a small margin) to cars like the Hommage and Vulcan. However, rank 1450-1500 Camaro SS' usually receive better matchmaking than rank 1334-1390 Camaro SS'; even with poor matchmaking, the 1450-1500 Camaro SS' can more easily cope, due to having a fully-upgraded raw top speed stat. Because of this, lower-ranked Camaro SS' often face defeat to higher-ranked Camaro SS', which often face defeat to more overpowered cars at even higher ranks. This occurs over a 200-rank bracket in Multiplayer.

In addition to the Camaro SS being very problematic for itself, it is problematic for other cars. The existence of the Camaro SS makes Multiplayer much more difficult for the MP4/8, Sagaris, Holden, and Estoque. Furthermore, the Camaro SS' high speed, even at rank 1334, forces the Cobra and BMW M2 to remain under rank 1300.

Overall, regarding Usability, the Camaro SS has been ranked equally to the Cobra and BMW M2, but those two cars are generally much easier to use and are more reliable, with better matchmaking as well.
