Battlefield 2042 Class System is Finally Returning to the Series Next Week

Richard Walker

Next week will see Update 3.2 rolling out for Battlefield 2042, heralding the long-awaited return of the series' class system, bringing back the recognisable Assault, Engineer, Recon, and Support classes, as part of Season 3: Escalation.

Each will be customisable with their own Class Equipment, Class Gadgets, and Weapon Proficiencies, with Specialists divided into their own distinct Class category. As well as the return of the Class System for Update 3.2, a rework of the Breakaway map is also planned, alongside exclusive rewards for owners of the Year 1 Pass, or Battlefield 2042 Gold and Ultimate Edition owners.

The M39 EMR, MTAR-21, and PP-2000 will also be added as new Vault Weapons, with new Suppressor, Long-range Scope, and Thermal Scope attachments. The M1A5 and T28 also get the Active Protection System, and Air Vehicles can take advantage of ‘Below Radar’.

  • I see they finally figured out their huge mistake only a year and a half too late.
  • Specialists/operators do not belong in Call of Duty or Battlefield games. They should be generic soldiers with classes, that's it.
  • @Cirative, Indeed, we don't want them trying to change or innovate stuff, we want the same generic things every year.
  • @2 why put generic soldiers when you can push that stupid woke agenda for some twitter token.
  • @Unger That's not innovation, it's copying a fad. That's the opposite of innovation. And generic soldiers sold significantly better with ALL previous Battlefields by comparison. So, you're just flatout wrong.
  • @Cirative, They tried to do something new with their game, given the reaction of fans it failed, but at least they tried something new. But if you're happy to spend money on the same generic soldiers every year, more power to you ;)
