Specializations are a game mechanic introduced in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The provide players with special benefits and abilities. Three tiers of specializations available: Primary, Secondary, and Vehicle.

All specializations, excluding weapon altering specializations such as a sight or 12 Gauge Slugs, are coupled with the player. This means that if the player acquires a new kit in the field, the specializations the player spawned with will still be active.

Vehicle specializations do not stack if there are multiple people in the same vehicle with different specializations. All active specializations will only apply if the driver/pilot has it equipped.

Specializations also appear in Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, though it lacks the "high-tech" specializations to fit with the time era, these being the Sniper Spotting Scope, the 4X Rifle Scope and the Red Dot Sight.
