Specializations is featured in Battlefield 3. Specializations upgrade the abilities of the infantry player. The player can choose one specialization in their loadout.

Squad-level versions of specializations available after earning individual versions, applying the benefits to the entire squad. On the HUD squad display, an icon shows which squad specialization a player has chosen, if they are using one. It is possible for each player to choose a different squad specialization for a total of four different effects. Otherwise, specializations do not stack.
