Battlefield 2042 has changed the franchise forever by removing classes and replacing them with specialists. Here’s how to complete every skin challenge for all 10 specialists. 

EA DICE has dropped players into their latest addition to the Battlefield franchise, with 10 new specialists to experiment with. With unique traits offering Assault, Recon, and Support roles in your squad – there is a Specialist for every playstyle in the game. It isn’t just learning their traits, either, as each Specialist has their own set of challenges to complete, in return for exclusive skins and XP bonuses.

We’ve put together every specialist challenge you can complete within Battlefield 2042 for all of the ten specialists so far – and we’ll add to the list as we get more post-launch additions to the roster.
