Battlefield 2042 will build upon the previous Assault, Support, Engineer, and Recon classes by introducing the new Specialists who have special abilities along with the rest of the loadout system. So if you are wondering who are these Specialists & what do they do? then here’s Specialists explained in our Guide for Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield 2042 Specialists Explained
The Specialist system, which launched in Battlefield 2042, is a new addition to the Kit system. The four courses of 2042 are used to create specialists. Each Specialist has a different specialty gadget and a different passive Trait. The remainder of the Specialist’s loadout may be customized to your liking.
At the time of the release of BF 2042, 10 Specialists will be accessible, with four more Specialists to be released within the first year as extra material or DLCs. Among the currently revealed specialists are:
|Maria Falck||Support||Syrette Pistol||Combat Surgeon|
|Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky||Engineer||SG-36 Sentry System||Sentry Operator|
|Webster Mackay||Assault||Grappling Hook||Nimble|
|Wikus “Casper” Van Daele||Recon||OV-P Recon Drone||Movement Sensor|
Each Battlefield 2042 Specialist has their own unique Specialty ability & devices, like Boris’ SG-36 Sentry System, Maria’s Syrette Pistol as well as a distinctive passive Trait, like Casper’s passive Movement Sensor. The rest of each Specialist’s kit can be customized to their liking.
Let’s take a closer look at the first four Specialists:
Maria is the Support class specialist in Battlefield 2042, equipped with the Syrette Pistol, which may be used to heal friends while simultaneously doing damage to foes. When reviving downed friendlies, Maria can return them to fight with full health.
Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky
Boris’ SG-36 Sentry System detects and shoots at enemies within a defined region automatically. With his Sentry Operator trait, his SG-36 spots all the enemies when it locks on to them within its range.
Mackay’s Grappling Hook allows him to transverse distances and heights by attaching them to any surface. His Nimble trait allows him to move faster than other players while aiming down sights. This gives him a future advantage in moving fast on the battleground.
Wikus “Casper” Van Daele
Van Daele is the Recon class specialist in Battlefield 2042, whose OV-P Recon Drone surveys the area and uses EMP blasts to disorient attackers while also spotting them to friendly forces. Targets for lock-on weaponry can also be designated using the drone. When Wikus is on the ground or flying the Recon Drone, his Movement Sensor characteristic alerts him to incoming enemies within the scan area.
