Battlefield 2042 Unveils Its Final Five Specialists

Dice has shown off the final five Specialists players can pick in Battlefield 2042.

These Specialists range from hackers to heavily-armoured soldiers, and each has their own set of unique abilities for you to use in combat.

Specialists are a new addition to the Battlefield series. Dice says they are “inspired by Battlefield’s traditional Classes”, and they each have a “unique Speciality and Trait that defines their playstyle, with the rest of the loadout being fully customizable”.

You can see each Specialist in action in the video below.

Who Are The New Specialists?

First up we have the Recon class Navin Rao, who can hack into objects and equipment and reveal enemies after killing a hacked target.

Up next, Santiago “Dozer” Espinosa is an Assault Specialist with a ballistic shield. He takes less damage and recovers faster from explosive damage. And the third specialist is Emma “Sundance” Rosier. She comes equipped with a wingsuit and smart explosives like EMP and scatter grenades.

Ji-soo Paik is another Recon Specialist, and she automatically spots enemies who damage her. She can also deploy a scanner to see enemies behind cover. Lastly, Constantin “Angel” Anghel is a Support Specialist who can revive allies rapidly and restore armour. He has a loadout crate packed full of ammo, armour and new loadouts for him and his allies.

In other news, Big Map, which lets players see an overview of the entire map, has been confirmed to return in the full release of the game. Other details have been shared, including updates on communication, HUD elements and squad composition, and you can see them all in a new blog post by the Battlefield team.
