Battlefield 5 Support Class Guide 1

Battlefield 5's multiplayer has always been a class-based system, but with exclusive roles, perks, and weapons tied to each job, which one you pick has never been more important. Here's what to expect from the Support class.

Battlefield 5 Support Class Combat Roles

  • Engineer - Skilled with both a weapon and a spanner in their hands, the Engineer repairs vehicles and builds stationary weapon placements. Perks include the Vehicle Fixer Trait which increases the rate at which you repair vehicles and build fortifications, while the Heavy Weapons Trait boosts the length of time a stationary weapon can be fired before it overheats.
  • Machine Gunner - A soldier that relies on suppressive fire in order to get about the battlefield. Perks include the Bullet Storm Trait which causes more suppression for the enemy and less for yourself when bullets are fired, and the Focused Fire Trait which spots enemies for your team when they're fully suppressed.
