One of the most interesting things about Battlefield 1 is the flexibility of the classes it offers. In total, there are four distinct classes to choose in every battle. Each of these, though, has its own pros and cons (strengths and weaknesses). Nevertheless, all of them have a significant role to play in the game; hence not one is really on a leverage than the other. To help you better understand them, here's a guide to check out. Read on!
The Assault Class
This one here is specifically for players who love face-to-face combat (you know, those close-quarter styles). The Assault Class is also a perfect one when taking down enemy tanks. With its primary weapon (machine guns), it can easily dominate gun fights with no sweat. But take note: it also has a weakness -- it relatively falls behind when it comes to long-range shots. If you know how to sneak in and play close combats, this class here shouldn't be a piece of work.
The Medic Class
The Medic Class in Battlefield 1 can be compared to the support department in any other games. They're the ones who settle just behind the front-lines, giving them enough space to offer support. Their main priority is to keep the team alive and kicking. Medics are into semi-automatic rifles, something that can only work at mid-range shots. Hence if face at short or long range quick fires, this one here can easily be defeated.
Nevertheless, if you're a medic, your team won't necessarily ask you to do more combats. Instead, it's your main priority to heal them and/or keep them healthy. So, as much as possible, focus on offering support. Whenever there's an opportunity, revive a fallen comrade. And lastly, provide health packs to those who badly need it. Remember: don't go there to fight, but instead support.
The Support Class
This Battlefield 1 class makes use of light machine guns, so as to keep the opponents from winning. Players who use this class are assigned to give their teammates a good window to move against their enemies. The good thing though in the new installment, machine guns now are pretty much accurate compared in Battlefield 1. So, unlike the Medics, Supports can also be of a huge help when it comes to attacking and defending. Nevertheless, most of their jobs should circle on giving support -- similar to the Medics. But remember: when playing Support, it's important to have a good line of communication. So, as much as possible, wear a headphone that has a mic on it.
The Scout Class
Think of the Scout class as a sniper genius. They're equipped with sniper rifles, enabling them to take down an opponent at a very long range. But because of such capability, they're fragile in close combats. They don't do well in close-quarter fights; hence distance should be prioritized. This one here is also tasked to keep the front-lines well-covered. Scout class players are there to, well, scout whatever there's to scout. That way, the team will have some sort of vision as to where the closes enemies are.
