Like many of the other Battlefield titles, Hardline allows players to equip different gadgets such as grenades, first aid kits, and grappling hooks. Each time you go into battle you’ll be able to choose two gadgets to bring with so, making it incredibly important to make sure you’ve got the right tools for the job.

Gadgets can be placed into one of two groups, universal and class specific. Any class can use the universal gadgets, while class specific gadgets can only be used by their respective class.

Universal Gadgets

These gadgets can be equipped by any class:

  • Grapping Hook – Creates a climbing rope up to the location at which it was fired.
  • Gas Mask – Blocks the effects of the gas grenade and some other environmental effects.
  • Stunt Driver – Gives any vehicle you drive a nitrous boost. Has the added bonus of making your vehicles more resistant to collisions.
  • Zip Line – Connects two points with the zip line wire. You can then use the zip line to rapidly travel between the two points.
  • Gas Grenade – A gas-emitting grenade that causes blurred vision and a high susceptibility to damage.
  • M18 Smoke – Upon detonation deploys a thick cloud of smoke in the target area. Perfect for covering troop movements or obscuring snipers.
  • M67 Frag Grenade – Standard issue frag grenade. Does blast damage in a medium area around the initial detonation.
  • M84 Flashbang – Blinds and disorients any players within the blast range using a bright flash and very loud bang.
  • Molotov Cocktail – After impact, explodes spreading flames everywhere that persist for a short period of time. Any enemies caught within the flames take damage.
  • T62 CEW – Uses a high-powered shock to temporarily disable enemies.

Mechanic Gadgets

  • Satellite Phone – Places a new spawn location for you and your squad.
  • Repair Tool – A magical torch that repairs friendly vehicles and damages enemy ones.

Operator Gadgets

  • Survivalist – Allows you to revive yourself if you’re downed by car strikes or explosions. Deaths from bullets and other any other source will not give you the option to revive.
  • Defibrillator (Cops Only) – Can be used to revive a downed teammate. The longer you charge the defib, the more health they will come back with.
  • Revive (Criminal Only) – Just like the Defib only it’s a terrifying adrenaline needle. Charging up the ability brings the criminal back with more health.
