Personal History

Sundance was orphaned while still an infant when Paris was devastated by a nuclear attack. As the city underwent mass evacuation, Sundance was moved to a large children's home in Lyon. Growing up was a traumatic period for them not only dealing with issues of identity but also navigating the shifting power struggles between the other children.

As they reached their late teens, Sundance fell in with the local Le Milieu after a confrontation with a nightclub bouncer showcased their abilities as a fighter. The criminal family took Sundance into their care, teaching them to provide security for the organization's smuggling ops. For the first time in their life, Sundance found something they were good at and they excelled at their job.

During the transportation of a cargo container from Tunisia, the ship encountered a violent storm and was forced to dock before reaching its destination. Upon assessing the ship's damage, Sundance discovered the vessel was harboring several dozen terrified migrants in the process of being trafficked. It was a line Sundance wasn't prepared to cross: they had to act. After subduing their fellow gang members and releasing the prisoners, Sundance fled knowing full well a contract would be put on their life.

They hid by joining the Armée de Terre where their talents in combat were immediately recognized. On the battlefield, it became obvious their prowess and fearless attitude far exceeded other soldiers'. They were assigned to the Airborne division and relished the exhilaration of jumping from aircraft and freefalling hundreds of meters into battle.

As fires raged across the Baltic region, causing instability across Europe, France experienced food shortages and civil unrest. When the government recalled all military personnel to help contain the national conflict, Sundance feared reprisals and vanished once again, this time into the ranks of the Non-Patriated. The movement was always in need of soldiers. Lucky for them Sundance never turns down a fight.

Key Dates

Specialty

"Detonates into a smaller cluster of explosives, dealing significant damage to infantry."

— In-game description

Sundance is equpped with the Scatter Grenade as their specialty. Deploys explosive sub-munitions for increased damage. The main charge is time-fuzed, and so may explode in mid-air. The submunitions spread further apart the higher up they begin.

Sundance can carry a single grenade that will regenerate roughly every 15 seconds. Separate kill credits are awarded for Scatter's main charge and sub-munitions.

Trait

"Equips CW-2A Wingsuit instead of Parafoil."

— In-game description

Sundance's trait is Wingsuit, replacing the Parachute available to other players with a CW-2A wingsuit. This allows the player a limited period of flight, gaining the ability to cover a lot of distance.

Sundance uses the wingsuit exclusively in place of the parachute, and so may have difficulty in situations where the player may wish to simply descend. Conversely, Sundance can begin gliding from lower heights, above where other players would suffer fall damage, but below where they can activate their own parachutes. Sundance will also begin gliding immediately when exiting an air vehicle. The player can break out of gliding by pressing Crouch to use weapons or gadgets in mid-air, or to regain downward velocity when stalled, and can just as quickly resume gliding by pressing Jump.

One will need to take great care, as colliding into the ground at extreme speeds will deal upwards of 50 damage, and collisions with standing objects can lower control dramatically mid flight. Except when near a tornado, the player generally cannot gain altitude without sacrificing speed.

Trivia

  • Though appearing prominently in the reveal trailer, Sundance was not profiled as one of the four initial specialists on the Battlefield website. Rosier was later revealed with four other specialists in between the Open Beta and launch.
  • Sundance is the first character in the series to be classified as non-binary.[2]
  • Sundance originally has EMP Field Grenade as one of their specialty. This was later removed in Update 1 (Season 1).
    • Sundance also lost their Anti-Armor Grenade in Update 5 (Season 5).
      • Anti-Armor grenades will head directly towards a target vehicle, regardless of line of sight. This may cause them to collide against unintended surfaces. The target vehicle will continue receiving a warning until the grenade is destroyed.
  • Before Update 3.2 (Season 3), Sundance will use parachute when they deploy on EBLC-Ram's Insertion Beacon.
