Visceral Games Battlefield Hardline is now available and we have an in-depth guide showcasing each and every element of the game, ranging from single to the multiplayer component. We have included guides for each of the classes, gadgets, weapon unlocks, expert level unlockables, couch vehicle, item drops, grenades lists and their statistics along with tips and tricks on how you can unlock achievements and trophies.

Furthermore, using this guide you will be able to earn money faster, level up quickly, unlock gold camos, find more about deluxe editions guns, trigger levolution and destruction, customization options, battlepacks and spray paint a custom emblem.

Class Guide:

Battlefield 4 Hardline provides 4 classes to choose from. They are Operator, Mechanic, Enforcer and Professional. Select the Operator class if you like to play up front. The best way to get started with the Operator class is to purchase an assault rifle which will allow you to shoot the enemies at mid range. You can also pick up the First Aid Pack which can be used to heal your team mate or even better pick up a shotgun to take down enemies up close and personal but remember, the Operator class isn’t meant to take down the enemies in this fashion. Scan the area with  3.4X and 4X scopes to get a handle on the situation and take aim from a distance.

The Enforcer class is best used during the Heist and Rescue modes due to their high defensive capabilities. You can use the ballistic shield to provide cover to your teammates when the enemy is drilling bullets towards your team or you can also drop ammo boxes in random areas to replenish the ammo count of your fellow fighters.

The Professional class is best suited for long range shooting or tactical engagement with the enemy. Use your sniper rifle to take out enemies or use laser trip mines to blow out the bad guys. You can also use the G17 weapon to take down enemies at close range. The Mechanic class, as the name suggests is a tech savvy class which has access to special equipments such as satellites phones and grenade launchers. Using the satellite phone you can destroy enemy vehicles or barricades. And, it won’t be a mechanic if it does not have access to repair tools. Overall, the mechanics class is more of all round class, combining the best elements from every class in the game.

Gadgets Guide:

Battlefield Hardline provides a plethora of gadgets but we highly recommend user laser mines and the camera. Smart placements of laser mines at doors or hallways will take out enemies. The camera will allow you to scan the area and make it easier to make your next move.
