The fact that Battlefield 2042 will use specific characters named specialists instead of more anonymous classes has not directly become the most acclaimed feature of the game. In the beta test , we got to test four of them, and via a video, Dice has now shown five more.
First out is Navin Rao, who is of the recon class. He can hack both objects in the environment as well as players, and if he kills a hacked player, the trojan network kicks in and shows all enemies nearby. Then we have Santiago “Dozer” Espinoza, and just as the name suggests, he is a heavy assault guy who can use a portable ballistic shield and also take less damage from explosions.
Next in line is Emma “Sundance” Rosier, also of assault class. Her specialty is a set of smart explosive charges that, for example, can search for targets on their own. She also gets a wingsuit that allows her to glide long distances. Then we have Ji-soo Paik, who is recon class. Her passive ability is that she automatically “spots” enemies that do damage to her, while her active ability allows her to see the silhouette of enemies behind objects.
Last out is Constantin “Angel” Anghel, who is a support class. He can quickly revive other players and restore their armor, as well as summon an ammo and equipment box.
Battlefield 2042 will be released on November 19 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Playstation 4/5.
