The smart bomb will be a throwable gadget available exclusively with Battlefield 2042, specialist Emma “Sundance” Rosier. According to some reliable information, this throwable item can operate in three modes:


The anti-armor is a self-propelled drone that is lethal against nearby vehicles, including air vehicles.


The EMP causes disruption to enemy electronics.


This option will deploy explosive sub-munitions for increased damage.

Using these grenades will warrant kill credits to the players and furthermore, extra credits are awarded upon using Scatter’s main charge and sub-munitions.


Wingsuit is another feature exclusive to the specialist Emma Rosier, where players can drop from a high altitude onto any battleground and take their enemies by surprise. This is a relatively new feature in Battlefield and will tend to cater to players who play with an aggressive approach.

The usage of wingsuits might turn the maps of Battlefield into an unrealistic battleground with only a few soldiers actually fighting on foot. While most players are excited about the arrival of this new feature, several others are concerned about how it deviates from the original idea of Battlefield’s core gameplay model.
