The five Divisions will come with different traits that will make created characters more effective in specific situations.
This Division specializes in laying down a withering offense to buy their team breathing room. Their bipod-equipped light machinegun shreds lightly armored targets, while their armor protects them from enemy explosives, tactical equipment and flamethrowers. When extra punch is required, the Anti-Tank Grenade sticky bomb is the ideal choice.

Armored III: Immune to Shell Shock and Tactical Equipment. Take less fire damage. Take less explosives damage.
Remaining undetected, this Division excels at covert operations and stealth gameplay. When armed with sniper rifles, the Mountain Division prefers to stay at a distance, waiting patiently for the perfect shot. If detected, smoke grenades and the S-Mine 44 “Bouncing Betty” provide opportunities to escape or retaliate.
Sniper Sharpshooter III: Block out your surroundings and in return acquire aim assist and enemy names while holding breath.
Mountain III: Invisible to enemy Recon Aircraft while moving. Hidden to player-controlled Streaks. Quieter Movement.
This maneuverable Division is usually the first to the fight, parachuting into the thick of the action. Armed with suppressed submachineguns, these frontline fighters excel at taking and holding enemy positions until more heavily armored reinforcements arrive.
SMG Suppressor III: Hides muzzle flash and prevents gunfire from appearing on enemy mini-maps, but reduces range of weapon.
Airborne III: Sprint for longer distances. Climb over obstacles faster. Increased sprint speed.
Armed with a hearty supply of explosives and tactical equipment, the fighters specialize in sabotage, infiltration, and close-quarters combat. Their special Division Skill loads devastating incendiary shells into their shotguns to set fires and terrorize their opponents.
Shotgun Incendiary Shells III: Shotgun shells that spark flames that burn enemies.
Expeditionary III: Select a piece of Tactical and Lethal Equipment. Throw equipment faster, farther & while sprinting. Resupply equipment from killed enemies.
As all-around combat specialists, the Infantry Division emphasizes marksmanship and rarely misses their shots. Special training on the use of the bayonet makes Infantry riflemen a threat at all ranges.
Rifle Bayonet III: Special training on the use of the bayonet makes Infantry riflemen a threat at all ranges.
Infantry III: Additional attachment on Primary Weapon. Extra magazines. Move faster while aiming down sights.
