Battlefield 1 Assault Class Guide

Learn how to effectively use an Assault class in this quick guide to Battlefield 1.

Battlefield 1 introduces eight different classes of soldiers, and this quick guide is dedicated to an Assault class. If you like close combat and blowing up enemy tanks and vehicles, then you will be more than happy to play as Assault.

Let’s look into this class’ weapons and gadgets that you can use to dominate multiplayer maps in Battlefield 1.

As usual, the primary weapons of an Assault class are SMGs (sub-machine guns) that do wonders in close combat, but are not too effective for long ranges. So, if you want to benefit from this type of weapon, then stick to the towns and avoid open areas.

Your best spots are trenches, as this is where you can sit and wait for the enemies running by or even tanks rolling over you. Also, this is a great opportunity for using your Anti-Tank Grenades to take them down.

The tanks in Battlefield 1 represent the models used in WWI, which means they are not as heavy as modern tanks and are more agile. This greatly complicates your role as an Assault and you have to work through the towns really fast.

The most effective way to play online is to team up with several other Assault players. In this way you will be able to quickly take down any tank. This is necessary because it will be difficult for you to destroy an entire tank alone, as you will need to throw at least 3-4 grenades for a 100% result.

If you happen to play solo, then consider Anti-Tank Mines for a better strategy of taking the tanks down. Just set them up on high-traffic waypoints and wait for the enemy vehicles to ride over them.

Another alternative is the Rocket Launcher. It takes a bit of time to set up, but if you see the enemies approaching from the distance, then you can take your time and prepare the tripod for a devastating blow.

The last thing to remember is that you also have access to Dynamite that can be used for blowing up various obstacles on your way, so that you don’t have to use your other more valuable types of explosives.
