All known class specialists in Battlefield 2042 and what they can do

With Battlefield 2042 , the series reworks long-established features such as the classes or the traditional conquest mode and refreshes the mechanics. We show you how the new class system works and which specialists there will be.

With Battlefield 2042, the series goes into the future. Not only in the setting - the mechanics are also being scrutinized and should appeal to a new generation of players. In the case of the classes, this means: more freedom, more special skills.

A total of 10 specialists should be available at the start who equip your team with special skills and determine the class of a player. We explains the new class system to you and shows you the special features of the individual specialists. So far, 5 specialists are known - as soon as there is new information about the other release specialists, we will expand the article accordingly.

Battlfield 2042: Classes Explained

How does the class system work in Battlefield 2042? Basically, there is still the well-known class division in Battlefield 2042:

  • Assault soldier - Mobile soldier for the front
  • Utilities - support unit, also paramedics
  • Pioneer - responsible for the gross equipment
  • Scouts - Scout out or disrupt enemies
  • In contrast to earlier Battlefield offshoots, there are significantly fewer restrictions on the selection of your weapons.

    Unlike in Battlefield 5, as a scout you can also use weapons with a shorter range and an assault soldier has access to the long range caliber that was previously only allowed to be used by a scout. This generally makes the classes more variable and your enemies can no longer see at a glance which combat range you specialize in.

    The class is determined by your specialist. These are specialized soldiers who should support your play style with their skills. Every specialist has an active and a passive ability, which we will introduce to you in this article. Most of the specialists in the story are so-called “non-patriates” - stateless fighters whose home nation has disbanded.

    You have a free choice in the team and can also use the same specialists as your comrades - this also applies to the enemies. The situation is "Hazard Zone" mode different in the - here you can only take one specialist with you per class.
