BF3 classes

Battlefield 3 will feature 4 classes (or kits), much like previous Battlefield games. The classes are varied and each can serve two or more purposes, for example, the assault class can be team oriented with a med kit and defibrillator, or more offensive with a grenade launcher. All classes have dedicated weapons which can be only used by that class, while there is also a wide selection of weapons available to all classes, weapons like SMGs.

Assault

Battlefield 3 AssaultThe Assault class carries a primary weapon consisting of an assault rifle — like the M16 and AK-74 — and is now merged with the medic class — the Assault class can now heal and revive teammates. It can also function as a more offensive class with ability to swap out the revive kit for a grenade launcher.

The confirmed weapons for the Assault class so far are:

  • M16A4 assault rifle for USMC, AK-74M for Russian side.
  • M9 sidearm for USMC, MP-443 for Russian.
  • Grenade launcher or defibrillator kit.

Support

Battlefield 3 SupportThe Support class returns to its role it had in Battlefield 2, with its main purpose to provide heavy fire from a Light Machine Gun (like an M249 SAW), and resupply teammates with ammunition. In Battlefield 3, the Support class is broadened with the ability top use lighter weapons and assault rifles like the M4, as well as C4 explosives.
The confirmed weapons of the Support class so far are:

  • M249 SAW for USMC, RPK for Russian side.
  • M9 sidearm for USMC, MP-443 for Russian.
  • The ability to use lighter weapons with attachments like the M27.
  • Ammo pack to resupply teammates.
  • Ability to mount LMGs on surfaces for greater accuracy.

Engineer

Battlefield 3 EngineerThe Engineer class in Battlefield 3 is very similar to the class in Bad Company 2: its primary role is to engage tanks and armored vehicles with an array of rocket launchers such as the RPG-7 and the SMAW, or use anti tank mines. The primary weapon is a carbine rifle, with a variety of unlocks available, ranging from shotguns to sub machine guns.

  • Main heavy weapon includes the SMAW for USMC and RPG-7 for Russian side
  • Primary weapon is a carbine (like an M4 or AK-74U).
  • Rocket launchers can be swapped with anti tank mines.
  • Repair tool for repairing friendly vehicles.
  • M9 sidearm for USMC, MP-443 for Russian.

Recon

Battlefield 3 ReconThe Recon class carries a sniper rifle for long range engagement, but for Battlefield 3, the Recon class has a more active role as well. The Recon also has the ability to use a laser designator to mark targets.

Recon weapons:

  • Semi automatic sniper rifle, MK11 for USMC, SVD for Russian side.
  • Will have a wide variety of team-play oriented gadgets.
  • M9 sidearm for USMC, MP-443 for Russian.
  • Can set mobile squad spawn point and mobile motion sensor

          I disagree, four classes are needed. The Engineer needs to stay as is.

          The way you just described support, Elitemane, would never work from any standpoint in relation to balance. Having to choose between three unique abilities is too much for one class.

          Support class being able to offer up ammo makes the most sense. Those guys will going through ammo really quickly, so they should be able to support themselves with ammo when they need it.

          Besides, Assault gets the heal ability, which I like personally. This will mean that more teammates will be revived as Assault will most likely be the most played class in the game.

          I disagree with you on colors as well. people running around with different colors could be confusing, since this game relies so much on team work. I am for uniformity amongst teams.

          I’m an Engineer.. My squad’s tank/heli have been saved countless times by my repairing it, and I always lend a hand from the outside when there’s a tank vs. tank battle! The only thing I think should change is that the assult be carbines and the Engineers have mainly Assault rifles. If you don’t want Engineers, go play Call of Duty cause they don’t even have the coding ability to create vehicles. They just make some bad graphics, use the same engine, higher some story writers for 2 million dollars and TADA! You have your dream game.

      They need to make the specialist class and give him the sub-machine guns and C4. It doesnt make any since to give c4 to the sniper, Snipers are usually to far away from anything to use it. Remember bad company 1 that class set up was perfect. or do it like it was in bf2142 give the recon class a secondary job and give him the submachine gun. Please fix this. I know alot of people who refused to play bad comany 2 simply because of the class set up

        BF 2142 has a good class setup. And c4 should stay with RECON. Yes, u have to read the class name again: is not sniper, is RECON. And that class will have weapons for close combat. a recon, in this case could be in front of all other team players and not in the back. just stay hidden, lay some c4 traps, let the enemy pass, release c4 and trap them. works perfect in urban areas with close quarters.
        4 classes are the optimal setup. and the setup for BF3 will be the best.

        That is the beauty of BF2. It is based on the squad and teamplay of the diferent class of it’s 6 members! Each squad in order to reach the objective should have a medic for revives, a support for cover and ammo, an anti-tank, a special forces for using C4 on vehicles bridges UAVs etc, and the rest assault or snipers. The communication with the commander for orders, UAV, supplies, and vehicles dropping and of course Artillery support made this game the best ever. I pray for a BF2.1 where the game play remains the same and only the graphics are advanced….

          I think the reasoning behind that is that since BF3 is going to hopefully be a team oriented shooter, smaller squads means that no squad can have what they need all at the one time, preventing camping, stalemates, etc.
          Smaller squads also means everybody has to contribute in order to make it as a team.

    They should just let you choose whatever gun you want and leave the gadgets in their own class AND make it so that you can customize each classes armour and skin so that thier is some sort of individuality. Also when you put in your Clan Tag it should show up as a tab on your uniform :D That would be Awesome!!!

      You are forgetting about the balance issues. Any Class that allows you to heal others AND have an assault weapon and unlimited ammo is unstoppable. Likewise, there is a reason that no FPS lets a Sniper carry a assault-class weapon. The sniper could defend and attack against short, medium and long range targets, making him unstoppable. Imagine an engineer that had unlimited ammo and the antitank weapon?

        i think running and gunning in certain gametypes is actually a way to be a team player. obviously in rush, if you’re defense it doesn’t matter how much you die, just run in, take out as many as you can, and when you die, you go back. on offense, it doesn’t work as well because in that case you just burn out your tickets and end up losing. but there’s also gonna be a lot more CoD players in bf3 than there were in the others, so in conquest, if you’re in one of their bases and you’re being an annoying shit that spawn-camps them, they’ll be trying to kill you instead of capturing objectives.

    5 to 6 would be a good setup: Assault, Support, Sniper/Marksman/Recon, Medic, Engineer, and Spec Ops. alternatively, Assault and support could be combined into one class, so that way the people that want to be frontline soldiers have frontline, medium range weapons. Spec Ops and Snipers should get some suppressed pistols, and only Spec Ops should get suppressed primary weapons (rifles and/or smg’s). Engineer and Medic should get shotguns, carbines, and whatever smg’s there are. Engineer and/or Spec Ops should get anti-tank weapons.

    If they want it reallistic, they should give a look in actual US forces loadouts and squad structure.

    A squad composed of two fireteams, made of:
    Team-leader, Grenadier, Automatic Rifleman and Assistant Gunner, all with medical capabilities (at some degree), all with anti-tank capabilities (in fact, every squad is asked to carry at least two RPGs launchers in duty, some go as far as to ask every soldier to carry, by itself, two RPGs).

    Ok ppl… You are stuck to BF2… You ask for the separation of engineer and anti tank, which I find STUPID. And medics DO have the LMGs in real life, at least most of the time. That’s why they did so in BC. Ok, you are right to say take the ammo from the assault and make a support class, but what gun will it carry? LMGs too? That’s overpowered. Maybe heavy ARs like the AUG, that’s the only thing I can think of. And Spec ops, again a useless class. Better force the C4 on those recons and give them the shotties too. But take the fucking ghillie, if they shotgun! And shotties only available for assault and recon, who needs a renaming, but anyway. You guys ask for a BC2 with a couple of new maps, better graphics and Destruction, eh? That’s not BF3. Get used to changes. And last, yeah, a kind of commander would be welcome, the
    commander-only goodies were too much. Commander should be just a guy telling you where to attavk and stuff, but assets like the UAV should be available to everyone. Though with 32 teamates, yeah, you are right to say we need someone to drive us.

And they do carry the FN Minimi, our version of the m249. A proper medic though does indeed carry but a gun and will also never be attached to an infantry assault grp.

    Ok. I think this idea COULD work… But it would take lots of teamwork. Every Squad has ONE class. So you’d have a team of 6 assault guys… A team of 6 Spec Ops guys… Then have your SQUAD leader talk to other tiers (sniper,Lmg,etc) to see what’s going on from their point of view… If you have one sniper one assault one Lmg and one smg guy… You think the sniper will be able to communicate well with the guy who’s behind enemy lines?

        Cod isn’t a child game, its just an arcade shooter, neither battlefield is perfect (flame war in 3,2,1..) they are both arcade shooters and stop arguing about it, you just go arround shooting everyone and get shot by everyone, there is no good communication in the game as the squad leader doesen’t give a fuck about their teammates, he just keep sprinting to nowhere, the support class never actually lays on the ground spraying bullets and the recon hasnt got a spotter or spotts anything for you
        seriously iv been waiting like 10 minutes for a vehicle picking me up, they know i need transport but they just keep forward, everytime i try to command “my squad” they say: “dude shut the fuck up and let us play”
        i know is a videogame but everyone says it’s tactical, and pwns cod and shit but, dude ArmA 2 or Opperation Flashpoint ArmA 2: Project reality, pwns this game so badly, you need a mic in order to play, you got 1 life, if you get shot on the leg you will lay on the ground asking for a corpman.
        this game is so overrated, just because it got big maps and vehicles they think its “tactical”

Every time I play, Assaults are laying down medic kits, Supports put their ammo down, Recons spot enemy soldiers and use Spawn Beacons, and Engineers are blowing things to pieces- All as it should be. And the reason no one gives you a ride or lets you command is probably because you’re playing on Consoles- No one gives a shit on consoles, because console players aren’t used to taking commands from someone they barely know.
