Battlefield 2042 Complete Specialists List Available at Launch – Overview & Abilities

Battlefield 2042 Update 1.05

While we already wrote about the first four Specialists in Battlefield 2042 that were playable in the beta, EA has now released the complete list of Battlefield 2042 Specialists that will be available at launch come November 19! We have gameplay of the six remaining ones, as well as their abilities, backstory and more.

Battlefield 2042 Complete Specialists Lists – Abilities and Overview:


Class: Recon

Place of Birth: India

Specialty: Cyber Warfare Suit – Scramble enemy vehicle systems, disable Rangers, or trigger base defences from a distance.

Trait: Trojan Network – Hack into enemy systems for valuable intel.

Story: The most technical-minded of the No-Pat Task Force, Rao studied electronics and engineering in his youth while suffering from a debilitating illness. Once recovered, he was determined to utilize his skills to support his country by joining the Indian Armed Forces and later the Navy Marine Commando Unit (MARCOS). While assigned to secure Non-Patriated refugees, he was a part of a disastrous mission resulting in heavy casualties. After his discharge, he reached out to his No-Pat contacts and decided to put his talents as a Recon soldier to use in their cause.

Joining the Task Force gave him a way to protect those who needed it the most and perhaps, make amends for his part in the failed mission.


Class: Assault

Place of Birth: Mexico

Specialty: SOB-8 Ballistic Shield – Use this shield as a battering ram, protection from incoming fire, and for closing the gap on enemies.

Trait: Blast Resistant – Makes this Assault Specialist extra resilient to explosive damage.

Story: Born in Mexico, Dozer came to the US as an undocumented immigrant and chose to join the US Army as his pathway to citizenship. Sadly, waves of mass refugee immigration led to the military reversing their position and Santiago’s deportation from the country he’d risked his life to defend.

Dozer didn’t let this setback blunt his ambitions; he started a family and a successful business as a gunsmith before losing his home in Jalisco to brutal storms. Forced to leave once more, he and his family headed for Puerto Rico, where he uses his experience and strength as an Assault Specialist to aid Non-Patriated causes.


Class: Assault

Place of Birth: France

Specialty: Smart Explosives – Sundance has the explosives and experience to make life very difficult for teh enemy. From the scatter grenades to micro-drones, if something needs to go “boom,” they’re the one to call.

Trait: Wingsuit Operator – When needed, Sundance will deploy a wingsuit instead of a chute.

Story: Sundance definitely likes to live on the edge. They’re a skilled and fearless adversary that’s had two very different lives – one as a model soldier in the Armée de Terre, and an earlier and much darker existence as a trusted associate in a major Parisian crime syndicate. The latter, sadly, came back to haunt them and ended their military career pre-maturely.

This Assault Specialist is doing their best to keep a low profile among the Non-Patriated, while still using their unique talents to aid the cause whenever they can.


Class: Support

Place of Birth: Romania

Specialty: Loadout Crate – As a supply expert, he keeps his squad provided with armor and ammo and can also call in a beacon that allows for the swapping of loadouts.

Story: Growing up the son of a mechanic, Constantin has always had a love for taking things apart, building, and rebuilding them. This skill made him an incredible asset to the Romanian navy, where he served until the loss of his ship left him stranded and desperate. Cobbling together a distress beacon, he caught the attention of a No-Pat vessel and was rescued.

This Support Specialist offers more than just his incredible technical skills and positive attitude – he’s become something of a guardian angel to his No-Pat comrades, and a very valuable and well-liked ally.


Class: Recon

Place of Birth: South Korea

Specialty: EMG-X Scanner – Make enemies visible, even through walls.

Trait: Threat Perception – When taking damage, Paik can triangulate on the shooter and return fire.

Story: Athletic and fiercely competitive, Paik followed in her grandfather’s footsteps and joined the military where she was quickly recruited by a Republic of Korea Special Operations Forces unit specializing in covert infiltration.

Separated from her unit after a vicious attack by an unidentified militia group in New Guinea, she found refuge on a No-Pat ship. She’s since joined the Task Force as a deep cover Recon agent, probing the secrets of Daesong’s corporate headquarters.

Here’s the info on the first four Specialists revealed earlier, in case you want to see how their abilities stack up against the ones revealed today.

This Russian-born Engineer is a very experienced weapons expert on the Task Force, particularly when it comes to defensive tactics, although his true attachment to the team is suspect. Nevertheless, Boris is trusted to get the job done, albeit with maximum collateral damage.

Irish excels at fortifying positions on the battlefield, and creating small outposts with which others can use as a rallying point to make an attack.

There you have it! Don’t forget, more Specialists will be added for free as part of the game’s live service component.
