The Support kit is featured in many installments in the Battlefield Series. Its main role is to resupply friendly teammates and provide heavy suppressive fire against enemy targets.

Battlefield 2[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield 2

"Heavy gunner equipped to suppress enemy and resupply team-mates."

— In game description.

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 2. The kit's primary purpose is to resupply teammates with ammunition via his Ammo Bags on the battlefield as well as lay down suppressive fire on hostiles using the kit's light-machine guns. The Support, along with the Assault and Anti-Tank, has body armor equipped, meaning damage multipliers to the torso are decreased against the player, allowing player to survive a few more hits to the torso than those without armor. However, the armor reduces the Support's stamina, making sprinting significant distances and general mobility somewhat of a problem.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat[]

"The support soldier doubles as combat troop and medic. He carries a machine gun, fragmentation grenades, a pistol, and a medical auto injector, and can call in mortar strikes."

— Instruction Manual Description

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Unlike many of the classes in Modern Combat, the Support kit's role is slightly altered from its Battlefield 2 counterpart, now being a mix of the Medic and the former Support class. The class retains its light machine guns from the previous title, but with the removal of Ammo Bags from the game, the class is now the Medic of the team as opposed to the resupplier, being equipped with the Auto Injecter to heal himself and teammates. The class also has access to the Mortar Strike, allowing him to call in a mortar barrage on a specific target.

These additions allow the Support to lend himself well to his name: He can keep his allies in fighting condition by quickly healing them with the Auto Injector, aid in eliminating hostile vehicles or clustered enemies with a Mortar Strike, and his high damaging LMGs can easily pick off straggling enemies at range. Due to their inaccuracy and low rates of fire, the LMGs preform poorly up close, and the Support should avoid close quarters fighting when able, instead deferring these engagements to Special Ops or Assaults and assisting from afar.

Battlefield 2142[]

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 2142. It functions similar to its Battlefield 2 counterpart, featuring LMGs, shotguns, and a pistol that varies by faction.

Beginning with Battlefield 2142, LMGs gain accuracy the longer they are fired, though continuous fire is prevented by overheating. LMGs retain their accuracy bonus when using lower stances, favoring a prepared defender over more aggressive tactics. As an alternative, the Clark 15B is an ideal close-quarters weapon.

Although primarily responsible for keeping teammates stocked via the Ammo Hub, Support also provides essential defensive measures. The A12 Enforcer Sentry Gun and IPS Shield give extra protection in confined areas. The V5 EMP Grenade can temporarily disable vehicles and suppress infantry. The Clark 12-RDX gives Support indirect firepower, and a means of clearing explosives.

Support also provides detection for teammates (normally the role of Scout and Recon in other titles). The DysTek Pulse Meter and IDS-1 reveal nearby enemies. V5 EMP Grenade, along with NetBat Helmet, can reveal cloaked intruders.

Battlefield: Bad Company[]

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield: Bad Company. While it still specializes in suppressive fire, it has been combined with the Medic and Engineer kits, and is the primary healer and vehicle engineer on the battlefield, with ammo being supplied by Ammunition crates present at bases.

Battlefield 3[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield 3

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 3. The kit is more akin to the Battlefield 2 kit, as it is equipped with Ammo Box, used to replenish ammunition for teammates. With the introduction of the Suppression system, the Support class takes on an additional role of being a key presence by effectively shaping the battlefield by diverting and dispatching opposing forces.

Battlefield 4[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield 4

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 4, functioning similarly to its Battlefield 3 counterpart.

The Support class can now be used as a more versatile role, as it has access to its characteristic Light Machine Guns, along with Shotguns, Carbines, and Designated Marksman Rifles, allowing it to fill a number of different roles such as close quarters assault and sniping.

Battlefield 1[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield 1

This item has a Codex entry: Suppressing Fire

The Support class makes an appearance in Battlefield 1.

Much like in previous titles, Support has access to light-machine guns and has a primary role of suppressing enemies and supporting teammates.

The Support class has access to Ammo Pouch and Ammo Crate, with ammo pouches resupplying a fixed amount for individual soldiers on the move, and the ammo crate which replenishes more ammo over time and can supply whole groups at a time.

Battlefield V[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield V

The Support is one of four base classes featured in Battlefield V. Its two Combat Roles are "Engineer" and "Machine Gunner".

The kit can be equipped with either Light or Medium Machine Guns, as well as Shotguns, giving it increased versatility. Players can still choose to assist their squad from afar with suppressing fire, or close the distance and act as pointman with a shotgun.

Battlefield 2042[]

Main article: Support/Battlefield 2042

The Support class is featured in Battlefield 2042. In the main game, Angel and Falck are classified as Support Specialists.

In the Battlefield Portal, the BF3 Support is an available class within the Battlefield 3 Collection. The class features updated models of their BF3 US and RU counterparts and function in a similar manner.
