Battlefield 2042

DICE has released some new gameplay for Battlefield 2042’s Specialists via Twitter, detailing the traits and roles for each character in combat. It starts with Webster Mackay, an Assault class Specialist that uses Grappling Hook to flank enemies and reach new heights. He also has the Nimble trait, which provides increased agility while ADSing and ziplining.

Maria Falck is a Support class and is armed with an S21 Syrette Pistol. This heals teammates from afar and can also heal one’s self. Her Combat Surgeon traits allows her to revive fallen teammates to full health. Next is Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky, an Engineer that can use SG-36 Sentry System. This turret spots and automatically fires on enemies while the Sentry Operator trait allows standing near a turret to boost its accuracy.

Wikus “Casper” van Daele is a Recon Specialist suited for sniping and can use the OV-P Recon Drone to reveal enemy positions and disrupts electronics. The Movement Sensor trait detects incoming threats, usually flankers, and allows van Daele to react accordingly.
