Battlefield 2042 Specialists will be a brand-new way of playing the popular large-scale shooter. Having previously seen your quadrant limited to a weapon set that complimented a specific 'class', the new Battlefield 2042 Specialists will scrap the limitations and instead allow your team to run whichever weapons they like, with the individual operators having control of the abilities.

The individual Specialist characters will be a group of protagonists that excel in different areas, whether that be sniping or a more gung-ho approach, with abilities that will help assist the players' needs. With ten to choose from upon launch, but only five revealed so far, here's a breakdown to the Battlefield 2042 specialist characters.

For the latest news and details on the Battlefield 2042 beta, make sure you check out our guide.

Battlefield 2042 Specialists: Roles

The ten Battlefield 2042 Specialist characters will be split into four roles, with one of your four-man squad having to slot into each position.

Assault, Engineer, Recon, and Support roles will house the specialists, with each of the individuals in their respective roles having abilities that will help assist that specific unit. For instance, a hypothetical Support Specialists may have a quicker revive time, or be able to drop an armour boost for his/her team.

As the second Engineer, Boris isn't here to defend his fortifications, he's here to make them a castle that fights back. With a taste for an electronic helping hand, Boris will prove quite an asset to any Battlefield 2042 Specialist team.

SG-36 Sentry System – Automatically spots and engages enemy targets detected within a certain area

Trait:

Sentry Operator – Spots the enemy target when the sentry gun locks on to the enemy in question

The last announced Battlefield 2042 Specialist is Falck. A devoted mother searching for her son. She uses her motherhood to look after her squad and make sure the team don't walk around without a hot cup of tea.

Speciality:

S21 Syrette Pistol – Fires a syringe at friendlies to provide healing. The pistol won’t revive friendlies at range, just heal them. If fired at an enemy, the syringe will do damage.
