Combat roles in any Battlefield game have always been a crucial part to the series but now in Battlefield V combat roles, DICE have taken it up a notch for each class to make you even more effective on the Battlefield!
Below we have posted some official information Electronic Arts have released that you may find interesting about the Battlefield V Assault Class but we are not yet sure if they will be covering all classes so keep alert for more news.
Note that game content, gameplay mechanics, and other Battlefield V aspects covered in this article may change between now and the launch of the game.
Assault offers a balance of offense and defense in most situations – both anti-infantry and the Class best equipped to leave vehicles in a fiery heap. However, it’s difficult for the Assault Class to hard-counter sniper fire, so be careful not to get caught out in the open.
Weapons and Gadgets
Assault comes equipped with weapons that have effective hip-fire and respectable range. Their gadgets can weaken or destroy some vehicles, topple Fortifications, and wipe out a nest of enemies with one well-placed sticky dynamite or grenade.
Weapons and gadgets are set per Class and more can be unlocked just by playing. Weapons can be customized as part of your Company.
Primary Weapon Categories
Rifle Grenade Launcher
Each Class gets two Combat Roles at launch with one equipped as a default, and the other unlocked by playing. More will release as part of Tides of War, giving players enough time to master each before providing them with additional options to choose from.
Light Infantry (Default)
Light Infantry Traits
Scavenger: Find more ammo on defeated enemies and fallen comrades.
Battle Hardened: Regenerate a higher amount of Health than other Combat Roles.
Tank Buster (Unlockable)
Keep playing the Assault Class to unlock the Tank Buster. When the enemy team starts deploying tanks mid-match, spawn as the Tank Buster to soften their steel shell and automatically spot them to everyone on your team, so they can help put the tank out of its misery.
Also, if it’s you that destroys a spotted tank, you’ll reap extra Requisition Points that let your squad call in Reinforcements, like tanks and V-1 rockets, at a quicker pace.
Tank Buster Traits
Tank Painter: Vehicles that you damage become spotted.
Tank Scrapper: Vehicles that you destroy yield additional Requisition.
