"All right, lets do this!"

— Dozer

Santiago "Dozer" Espinoza is a specialist featured in Battlefield 2042.


Born in Mexico, Dozer came to the US as an undocumented immigrant and chose to join the US Army as his pathway to citizenship. Sadly, waves of mass refugee immigration led to the military reversing their position and Santiago's deportation from the country he'd risked his life to defend.

Dozer didn't let this setback blunt his ambitions; he started a family and a successful business as a gunsmith before losing his home in Jalisco to brutal storms. Forced to leave once more, he and his family headed for Puerto Rico, where he uses his experience and strength as an Assault Specialist to aid Non-Patriated causes.[1]


"Use this shield as a battering ram, protection from incoming fire, and for closing the gap on enemies."

Official Battlefield website

Espinoza's specialty is the SOB-8 Ballistic Shield, occupying his Specialty slot.


"Makes this Assault Specialist extra resilient to explosive damage."

Official Battlefield website

Espinoza comes with Blast Resistant as his trait.


  • Though appearing twice in the reveal trailer (performing a takedown on another apparent specialist, and later seen with a PKP-BP), Dozer was not initially featured as one of the four specialists on the Battlefield website, nor in the "Journey of the No-Pats" blog post. He appeared in later trailers and was finally profiled with four other specialists in between the Open Beta and launch.
  • During the game's early access, Dozer's Ballistic Shield was disabled due to an underlying issue affecting gameplay. Despite this, Dozer was still able to be used but without his speciality.
