Meet The First Four Specialists From Battlefield 2042

Who you choosing?

One of the major changes in Battlefield 2042 sees players take charge of Specialists, a new type of soldier that is inspired by the traditional class system found in Battlefield. Each Specialist has a name, an identity, as well as a unique Trait and Speciality. During our recent hands-off media session, DICE revealed that Battlefield 2042 will launch with 10 Specialists and gave us a look at the first four. What’s interesting about the Specialists is that with no single-player campaign it sounds like they will act as the vehicle for the narrative, with DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson saying that Battlefield 2042’s “evolving tale told through the different soldiers you play and the things you find in the world.” Let’s meet Battlefield 2042’s first four Specialists.
