With the public beta of Battlefield 2042 in the rear view, Dice published a new blog post that revealed the remaining five of the 10 experts available at the time of publication. The developer also discussed player feedback for the beta version and outlined specific criticisms it plans to address.
Everyone after 2042 knows that experts are new members of the series, with specific characteristics and fully customizable. The trailer below shows the last batch of characters (at least at the time of release). Navin Rao is a hacker who can turn the enemy’s equipment towards them and expose the enemy by killing the hacked target. Santiago “Dozer” Espinoza is a tank that can withstand explosion damage better and carries a fairly large ballistic shield. Emma “Sundance” Rosier wears a wing suit and a grenade magazine, such as EMP and anti-armor variants. Ji-Soo Paik has a scanner that can spot enemies in the bunker and can immediately spot anyone who hurt her. Finally, Constantine “Angel” Angel is a medic who can quickly resurrect allies (and even restore their armor), and can throw loading boxes full of supplies at teammates.
