Engineers in Battlefield 2042 are now a layer of defense, using powerful gadgets to prevent attackers from gaining the upper hand. There are 2 engineers as of launch time: Irishman and Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky. In this article, we will talk about some of Boris Specialist tutorials.
Boris Specialist Overview
- Role: Engineer
- Gadget: SG-36 Sentry Gun: Engages nearby hostiles
- Passive: Sentry Operator: Nearby Sentry Guns are more effective
Boris is an Excellent Professional in all activities. His SG-36 Sentry gun deals a significant amount of damage and marks the target for Boris, making taking down the target a lot easier. If Boris is defending a target or needs more firepower, the Sentry Operator will make any nearby Sentry Guns work much better.
While Boris the Expert isn’t a traditional Engineer from previous Battlefield titles, he’s a phenomenal figure that excels in everything.
Boris is one of the most powerful Special Forces in Battlefield 2042, capable of killing multiple infantrymen at once with his trusty turret. This turret not only deals damage to the enemies, but it can also detect enemies from quite a far distance. Several Boris Specialists can easily work together to lock in defensive targets or destroy infantry. This guide will cover what makes Boris Specialist special, explain how the turret works, and provide some tips on how to use this specialist effectively.
Gadget And Passive
SG-36 Sentry Gun
Boris can deploy the SG-36 Sentry Gun anywhere he wants on the battlefield. This turret will lock the target in its cone of vision, mark them for Boris, and fire if the target is in sight. Sentry Guns can mark targets behind walls, allowing Boris Specialist to mimic Paik’s utility. The effective range of his turret is difficult to measure, but it is quite large, it doesn’t take much time to get used to.
The damage taken from the Sentry Gun is quite low, although this can be improved by using the passive Sentry Operator. Enemies damaged by the Sentry Gun also move more slowly, making it much easier for Expert Boris to cast his ultimate. The Sentry Guns has only one use and the cooldown is quite long, it last until they are destroyed or restored by Boris.
When Boris stands within three meters of a Sentry Gun, that Sentry Gun can detect targets from further away and start firing much earlier. Again, determining this increased range with this passive is difficult to measure, but this increased range should be enough for your turret to hit wall-penetrating targets. The ability to start firing on target earlier also means it’s much more effective at slowing down and finishing the target. Shoot together with the turret to quickly take down the targets.
Tips And Tricks for Boris Specialist
- Boris’ Sentry Gun can detect targets through walls, see who your turret marks for superiority.
- Do not cling to the turret unless you are already in a safe position. Most of enemies assume Boris is near the turret, causing them to deploy explosives.
- Boris and his Sentry Gun become much more effective when combined with Ranger.
- Consider playing alongside Irish to double your defense.
