Specializations, Rank Increase & More

On top of new Operations and Supply Drop, the Russian DLC brings new Medals, 30 new Codex Entries, Dog Tags, Service Stars, and a refined progression system that includes new assignments and specializations. 

Specializations (which can be adjusted on the load out screen) include Flak, Stimulant Syringe, Pin Down, and Perimeter Alarm. Each class has 9 (7 generic, 2 kit specific) specializations. 

Here's the current list. We could see more added later:

Generic:

- Flak: Incoming damager from explosions is reduced by 15%

- Cover: Incoming suppression is reduced by 25%

- Quick Regen: Decrease time before Out of Combat Heal by 20%

- Quick Unspot: Decrease length of time you are Spotted by 2 seconds

- Bayonet Training: Bayonet charge lasts 1 second longer and recovers 1 second quicker

- Hasty Retreat: Increase your maximum sprint speed by 10% whilst you are Suppressed

- Camouflage: When moving slowly or stationary you are invisible to Spot Flares

Assault:

- Juggernaut: Your Gas Mask also reduces explosive damage by 15% (does stack)

- Controlled Demolition: TNT is now detonated sequentially

Medic:

- Stimulant Syringe: Reviving an ally give you both a 20% sprint speed for 8 seconds (Does not stack)

- Concealed Rescue: Downed Squad Mates within 20m drop smoke to cover their revival (40s cooldown)

Support:

- Unbreakable: Incoming suppression is reduced by 75% when your Bipod is deployed

- Pin Down: The Duration an enemy remains spotted is extended via Suppression

Scout:

- Scapegoat: A decoy is automatically deployed when struck below 35 health by a distant enemy (30s cooldown)

- Perimeter Alarm: When your Trip Mine is triggered enemies within 15m are marked on the mini-map

The In the Name of the Tsar update also bumps the rank cap 120 and adds HDR10 support for those with a compatible television.

    I’m assuming a couple of the weapons will be something along the lines of the Fedorov Avtomat 1915 “AR”, for Medics, and the Mosin 1895 Revolver Sidearm. We’ve already received the Chauchat LMG, and the 1895 Lever Action. My last major thought will be a Mosin Nagant, somewhere from during or before the war.

      Who cares about the weapons. Look under support guns. Only two do different damages. Why even have them.

    The DLC’s are so late and spread out because Battlefield aren’t releasing a game this year.
