Specialists in Battlefield 2042 are an upgrade over the traditional class system. They are essentially operators with unique abilities and belong to either of the four classes—Engineer, Assault, Support, and Recon. The Specialist system gives players more flexibility and allows customization of the loadout to the fullest extent.
Does that mean you can use the same gadget with different Specialists? The answer is yes and no. Players can equip two gadgets in their loadout—Primary and Secondary Gadget. Primary Gadgets are unique to the operator, and only they can use them.
For instance, Irish, a Defender class Specialist, carries the DCS Deployable Cover as part of his specialty—Fortification System. On the other hand, Secondary Gadget can be equipped regardless of what Specialist you are using. These include gears such as Ammo Crate, C5 Explosive, Anti-Tank Mine, Insertion Beacon, and more.
Moreover, players can use drones like Ranger with any operator. In conclusion, you can equip a Specialist of choice and pair them with any piece of equipment or weapon apart from the Primary Gadget.
