The old, renowned agent from the Battlefield 4 video game is ready to make his comeback and prevent a monstrous disaster in Battlefield 2042. As we have seen in the latest Exodus short movie published by EA, Irish is back as a leader of the multi-factioned No-Pats, and also as a playable specialist. Known for his skills, actions, and specialty, he’s one of the favorite characters that are making a comeback to Battlefield 2042.
In a recent thread on the official EA forums, developers have discovered the biography and purpose of Kimble “Irish” Graves, including his class and abilities that will be present in Battlefield 2042. Irish comes in Battlefield 2042 as a leader of one of the No-Pats groups. Irish hates when someone doubts his commandeering skills, unlike his colleagues, he decides to mend his own people. He has a lot of disagreements with Oz, a leader of another No-Pats group, and both of them have completely different perspectives on the current world.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at Kimble “Irish” Graves traits and abilities. An engineer, with a specialty in fortification systems, and a battle-hardened Veteran trait. If you’re eager to jump in details, check the descriptive list of his abilities below:
Battlefield 2042 Kimble “Irish” Graves Traits and Abilities
DCS Deployable cover
You can place the cover on nearly any flat surface, creating a small protective barrier that allows your allies to see out through its bulletproof glass. This barrier can protect you and allies from incoming fire until its health pool is depleted. As Irish, you can place multiple covers on a map.
Need to revive someone? Protect yourself against a sniper attack in the open? Hold the capture point for just a few more precious seconds? Using multiple covers, you can create your own small outposts to help you buy time. Obtaining some medical and ammo crates and teaming up with Boris and his SG-36 Sentry Gun will allow you to build your own castle-like fort.
APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel
The APS-36 is a rocket’s worst nightmare. Once placed into the world on nearly any flat surface, it eliminates incoming explosive projectiles within proximity (grenades, rockets, etc), turning a once deadly weapon into a puff of smoke.
Placing the APS-36 next to a vehicle will give it automatic protection from incoming missiles while placing it behind cover can force the enemy to reposition in their attack. But beware: an EMP or savvy hack attack can put the system out of action.
Irish’s Veteran trait allows him to dig in and stay alive. He will always spawn with a small amount of body armor that can be replenished whenever he collects dropped ammo packs from defeated foes.
Unlike the last couple of Battlefield series, Battlefield 2042 seems to have leaned onto the lore foundation quite firmly, aside from all the exciting news and features that are arriving in Battlefield 2042.
