Battlefield 2042 Specialist Details and Capabilities

0

Battlefield 2042 will take the long-running franchise to a new scale, and for gamers, that means having access to characters with their own abilities. Appointed Specialists, each has its own passive and active ability, as well as a certain combat role towards which it is oriented. It’s a way that players can approach the battlefield in a different way, without two specialists looking alike.

That being said, Gaming Specialists can be divided into groups. Each has abilities that push players toward a certain archetypal Battlefield playstyle, whether it’s Assault, Engineer, Support, or Reconnaissance. With the fluidity of the game for loadings, this is how players will further specialize their classes.

At launch, Battlefield 2042 will have 10 Specialists, although more will be added to the game after launch. A full list of gaming specialists is available below. Battlefield 2042 launches November 19 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S.
