DICE Reveals New Battlefield 4 Classes

by Prima Games Staff

In a very detailed entry to its Road To Battlefield 4 series, the developers at DICE unveiled the four classes you’ll be able to play as in the first-person shooter. Each one has specific perks and skills, all of which will come in handy as you overtake enemies and complete objectives. The classes include the following:

ENGINEER

The Engineer class has “a lot more variation in anti-vehicle weapons.” Additionally, DICE has “revamped the way we do vehicle disables and guided weapon systems to give the Engineer a broader set of tactics at his disposal.”

The Engineer will have a wide range of weaponry, including high damage weapons like the RPG-7V2 to smart weapons with low damage (MBT LAW). The fan-favorite Wire Guided Engineer Missile from Battlefield 2 also makes a return.

SUPPORT

The Support class received a few more offensive options. He will retain his C4 and Claymores from BF4, but will also see the following improvements:

“The XM25 gives him some nice indirect suppressive fire, a redesigned remote mortar allows him to use indirect fire from a distance, and the ability to equip carbines and DMRs gives him an added versatility in combat roles.”

RECON

The Recon class saw a boost to its mobility and return to the “Spec Ops play style” of Battlefield 2. Players can choose a kit that allows for going behind enemy lines or filling the traditional sniping role.

“Fans of more traditional sniping roles will enjoy our revamped sniping mechanics with rebalanced Sniper Rifles, the ability to zero your sights (set an aiming distance), and additional optics and accessories,” Kertz said. “Finally, the Recon players can still utilize the MAV, T-UGS, and Radio Beacon to help out their team.”

ASSAULT

The Assault class returns with the “frontline run-and-gun kit,” which will also fill the role of combat medic. Assault is now the “go-to kit” with med kits and defibrillators, but also has some additional mobility with the First Aid Pack, which heals a single soldier over time, or the 40mm Flash Bang rounds to help clear rooms.

Battlefield 4 releases on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and later in the year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
