Every Enlisted Role/Class Explained
Each class in Enlisted is limited to using certain weapons, not including those picked up. So even if you’re playing as a Trooper with only bolt-action rifles, you can still grab an automatic weapon off the floor. With that said, there are some unique advantages to each role mentioned below like the Radio Operator calling in artillery strikes. As you continue playing a campaign in Enlisted like the Battle of Normandy, you’ll slowly but surely level up that campaign. This leads to unlocking new squads and roles.
Also, as you level up each squad, you’ll unlock Personnel upgrades for role slots. This means you can sometimes throw an Engineer into a recon squad or even a Radio Operator. By doing so, you can take advantage of more roles without needing a squad dedicated to just one type. There are definitely advantages like running a recon squad into the woods with an Engineer for setting up a Rally Point.
