Battlefield 1 Support Class Guide
While playing Support Class, you basically need to provide your teammates with ammo, provide cover fire, and crowd-control with a ton of gadgets at your disposal. The class enjoys a ton of Lightmachine Guns which are useful for suppressing enemies down.
The class is essentially something between Scout Class and Assault Class – players who are struggling with either of these classes should definitely try out the Support Class.
In our Battlefield 1 Support Guide, we have covered everything you need to understand about playing Support Class in BF1.
Weapons and Gadgets
When it comes to Weapons and Gadgets, Battlefield 1 Support Class is a like a mix of Scout Class and Assault Class from BF4. Most of the time you will find them using light-machine guns. These weapons are best at mid-range combat to try to engage enemies at long range.
LMGs come with a large amount of ammo capacity and are very effective in suppressing the enemy and cover fire. Keep in mind that if you are looking for bloodshed, support class is not for you. In that case, you should go with Assualt and Sniper if you are good with that.

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!
If you spot a few enemies inside a building, the gas bomb can prove to be highly effective to flush them out.
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.
