The release of Battlefield™ 1 Turning Tides will, of course, include new maps, weapons, and vehicles – but there is even more to be excited about. New Service Assignments and Specializations will also be introduced when the update arrives on December 11. Following the head start for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners, these will be available for all players. In case you missed it, learn all about the Battlefield 1 Turning Tides release.
As you might know, Service Assignments are in-game Battlefield 1 challenges that you can tackle to earn Specializations. The latter are loadout options – either generic or class-specific – that give you more tactical options on the battlefield. We’ve covered both features in earlier articles, if you want to brush up on the basics:
8 New Service Assignments Including Pilot and Tanker Challenges
We’re adding 8 Service Assignments to Battlefield 1 in December, and we’ve worked towards several goals when designing them. The main intent is that the assignments are constructed with specific Classes in mind. A player using a Class for its intended purpose should be able to make good progress on the Service Assignments. Also, Pilot and Tanker fans will be pleased to see their favorite classes getting unique challenges.
We also wanted to make sure that many of the Service Assignments can be progressed simultaneously. While you attempt a more difficult challenge, you can still be making progress on the others.
Here’s a full breakdown of the Service Assignments and their rewards. Note that any 5 out of the 6 tasks of each assignment need to be completed to unlock the reward.
THE FRIENDLY SKIES (Basic)
Reward: Cloud Cover Specialization
THE FRIENDLY SKIES (Veteran)
Reward: Safe Bail Specialization
Requirement: Completion of The Friendly Skies (Basic)
TANKS FOR THE MEMORIES (Basic)
Reward: Critical Cover Specialization
TANKS FOR THE MEMORIES (Veteran)
Reward: Convoy Specialization
Requirement: Completion of Tanks for the Memories (Basic)
The Service Assignments for infantry and the 4 main Classes of Battlefield 1 are focused on what makes each Class unique. The explosive arsenal of the Assault, the Medic’s healing abilities, the vehicular aspects of the Support, and using the Scout class a distant threat – this is all taken into account.
Reward: Pilferer Specialization
Reward: Reciprocity Specialization
Reward: Perseverance Specialization
Reward: Ripple Specialization
8 new Specializations – Approach the Battle in Original Ways
Thanks to the unique perks of the eight added Specializations, you and your teammates can gain an important edge over the competition. As with the Service Assignments, notice how these Specializations are closely tied to the Battlefield 1 Classes, including the Tanker and Pilot.
Below you’ll find a full list of how these Specializations work – and why we’ve added them.
Note that on top of these vehicle-specific Specializations, the Pilot and Tanker classes will get the 3 default Specializations already existing in Battlefield 1 (Flak, Cover, Quick Regen.) If unlocked, the Specializations Quick Unspot, Hasty Retreat, and Inconspicuous will also be available for Pilots and Tankers.
So, what about the Cavalry class? Though we have no news on whether we will implement Service Assignments and Specializations for those seeking new challenges on horseback, we are looking into it.
Thanks for reading. Remember that we’re taking all your feedback into consideration and will keep tweaking the Service Assignments and Specializations to make Battlefield 1 an even more fun and challenging experience.
