Over the years, Call of Duty’s class systems have evolved and changed with each new release. We’ve had pick-ten, create a class, and even rigs before now. Call of Duty: WWII Divisions are the latest incarnation of these customisation systems, allowing you to kit out your soldier, building them into a class that suits your playstyle.
There are five different archetypes for Divisions: the Infantry Division, the Airborne Division, the Armoured Division, the Mountain Division, and the Expeditionary Division. Each has a selection of specialist weaponry, and there are also three different skills types with which you can further customise them with: Division Skills are active abilities you can use in battle; Division Training are passive perks that will shape your role; and Basic Training gives you a list of selectable perks to further define your place on the battlefield.
Here is a bit more on the three Divisions and their different roles.
A good all-rounder, the Infantry Division is made up of assault specialists. Using weapons like to semi-auto M1 Garand, or the deadly full-auto BAR, this class is effective at any range. If they need to close the distance, the Infantry Division are equipped with a deadly bayonet charge. This class also comes with full control over weapon attachments for bot primary and secondary weapons. For a look at the guns, check out our list of Call of Duty: WWII weapons.
The Airborne Division is made up of flanking specialists. Equipped with SMGs, these nippy fighters are great for getting behind enemy lines and peppering them in the back. Kitted out with the ability to equip a suppressor, they won’t even see you coming. Their training also allows them to run faster and for longer, meaning you will be able to throw off any pursuers that see you running to their flank.
Kitted out with LMGs and rocket launchers, these are the best for taking down scorestreaks and laying down sustained fire. If you are up against a team of enemies dug in, the Armoured Division will be there to keep their heads down with a relentless barrage.
The Mountain Division are Call of Duty: WWII’s sniper class. Slow and methodical, these are best at range. If you decide to take on the role of a Mountain Division specialist, you will need to make every shot count. Miss and you will give away your position, giving the enemy time to react as you load another shot. They make up for this by taking out enemies cleanly and with as few shots as possible.
If sniping isn’t your thing, the Expeditionary Division are your close-quarters specialists. Equipped with shotguns and explosive protection, these are at their best down in the trenches, taking corners and downing enemies in a loud, messy display.
