Battlefield 1 Support Class Tips and Strategies

As mentioned earlier, you basically need to provide your teammates with cover fire and ammunition – staying close to your teammates is very important. The idea is to stay behind cover with a Tripwire to watch your back and providing suppression fire.

Support Class weapons have decent range and damage, but suffer from accuracy. Due to this, you need to make sure that you do not continue to hold the trigger. Try to fire in short bursts so that you conserve ammo and are more accurate. Moreover, since LMGs in the game has slow rate-of-fire, there is no need to directly jump in against the like of Assault Class and Medic Class.

Try to stay behind cover, but always be active at all times. Moreover, it is a good idea to heavily rely on your Tripwires to keep your six covered. When moving from one objective to the other, try to do so in vehicles, do not move in open areas, and always have your back covered!

In the end, do note that Support Class is definitely recommended if you want to work on your aim and try out the Scout Class. However, with this class, you always need to be on your toes and constantly provide cover fire.
