With an almost suicidal desire to be in the thick of the action, a Soldier looking to specialize in the Assault class is tasked with leading the charge into the very heart of the enemy territory, championing his team’s attempts to capture opposition positions.

No matter how cool and interesting the rest of the Assault classes abilities may be, never forget that it’s your job to keep your team fully supplied with ammunition. Drop ammo boxes behind key points of cover, even if no one’s there. You’ll be surprised by the amount of points you pick up seemingly out of nowhere throughout a game by doing this!

Smoking is bad for you....but not for the Assault class

Often outpacing the rest of his team thanks to a combination of unmatched mobility and body dropping power, the Assault class needs to be at ease with being the first man on the scene, but more importantly he needs to be able to prepare a flag, or staging location, for a full on assault from the rest of his brothers in arms. To this end he has smoke grenades which enable him to blind opposition troops, allowing friendly units to move up and provide backup for the brave lone soldier. Alternatively, he can try a slightly stealthier approach, popping the smoke on himself or the flag, making it nearly impossible for opposition troops to fire at him accurately.


Flare guns and flag capturing

Another key piece of equipment in the Assault Soldier’s bag of tricks is the flare gun which he can use to request reinforcements, indicating to the general that he has reached a point on the map from which he can launch an effective offensive against his unsuspecting prey; or perhaps he believes he can capture a key position from underneath his opposition's nose. When used in conjunction with the smoke grenades, requesting reinforcements can make for some truly epic Battlefield moments.

Picture this... the Assault Soldier has just neutralised an enemy position when he spots two opposition Soldiers bearing down on him. Knowing he has to do something to stay alive and capture the flag, the Assault Soldier pops smoke at his feet and requests reinforcements simultaneously. As the gentle breeze begins to waft the smoke away, it becomes clear that what had previously been a 2v1 situation in favour of the opposition, has now become a 2v5 situation in favour of the Assault Soldier. Clearing up two stragglers on the flag is not a problem for the five teammates and they capture the flag with ease, all thanks to the Assault soldier doing his job and playing the way he was meant to.


The future and what’s in store

With the third tier of training drawing nearer and nearer (I swear Angel), it’s time to take a look at how the Assault class will shape up once he has completed his training. Lets take a brief look at some of the new abilities the third tier of training will unlock for the Assault Soldier.
  • C4 Charges:
    No doubt these will be grabbing the headlines for all of the Assault players out there. C4 is an explosive compound that, when prepared correctly, can be placed at a location and remotely detonated whenever the owner deems it most lethal. With this new addition to his arsenal, the Assault Soldier can set traps for enemy troops. This will be particularly useful when he is behind enemy lines and taking a flag. While he is relatively safe and waiting for it to naturalize, he can plan and set his traps. Once the flag neutralizes and goes white, the enemy will return to capture it. That’s when it’s time to set off the fireworks!

    C4 will also prove useful versus vehicles, with tanks making for particularly juicy targets. The joy of taking out tanks in this intimate and challenging fashion has the inner children in us (ok lets face it, the outer one’s too) giggling with thoughts of the simultaneous shouts of joy and rage that will ensue after such kills!
  • Satellite Surveillance:
    This ability will be both a blessing and a curse to the Assault class. Displaying enemy troops on the mini-map for a brief moment in time, this ability will allow the courageous Assualt Soldier to pick the safest (or most danger ridden) route to his target location. On the flipside of the coin, opposition troops may be able to detect him as he tries to flank around behind enemy lines. This training has the potential to make for more strategically intense play, it will interesting to see how soldiers decide to use it.
  • Grenade Toss Back:
    Ever been about to capture a flag only for that most heart sinking of sights to completely dash your dreams, quickly followed by your brains? Crouched behind cover with only 5 more seconds until you capture the flag, when all of a sudden a grenade lands at your feet, there’s nothing worse. With proper training in grenade toss back, you will be able to throw the grenade back out from behind your cover, saving your life and allowing you to capture the flag!


That’s not all, there’s more on the way, but you’ll have to wait to see what else we’ve got planned! Check back tomorrow when we’ll highlight another class and see what’s in store for them once Tier 3 training finally shows it's face!

Common sense says yes, it'll be silly to release Tier 3 and then not being able to use it because we can't level up and not being able to gain more training points.

Hmm. Check back tomorrow when we'll highlight another class? Logic dictates that the round up will be done by friday, then.
When considered in context with all the other changes around here recently (XP nerf, BF promotions & comps, extra slot adverts), it seems that the devs are keen on piquing the playerbase's interest, ahead of a big reveal.

I wouldn't be surprised if Tier 3 was released next week, although I won't be fool enough to consider this a certainty. It'd be nice, though.
