Each class features a unique ability as well as different gear loadouts and armor levels. Furthermore, there are filenames under Tools and Equipment headers which may allow you to change the standard ability listed in the loadouts.
You can find the loadout mock-ups below.
The Assault class will utilize assault rifles as their primary weapon and carries a larger pool of grenades compared to most other classes. Wearing level two armor with no drawbacks to stamina or speed, Assault looks to be the most adaptable class in Ghost Recon Wildlands' PVP.
Assault also features the Scanner ability which may allow you to scan for opponents or enemy tech within range.
Wildlands' Engineer class allows you to lay out traps for the enemy team. With four mines at your disposal, you can lock down a specific path all on your own. From the loadout image, the Engineer will use a variety of submachine guns and have the Drone ability. You'll likely be able to use the Drone as a tool to gather information on other players' positions and possibly mark them like you can in the campaign.
Scout looks to be the quickest class available in the PVP mode. Because you'll be wearing level one armor, you'll have increased movement and increased stamina. Just like the Engineer, Scouts will use submachine guns, though the Scout's SMGs will be silenced.
As with the Assault class, Scouts will also use the Scanner ability.
Snipers in Ghost Recon Wildlands' PVP modes will do just that, snipe. The class will have no armor value, but will wear a ghillie suit to disguise themselves with the environment. Similarly, the Sniper class features the Jammer ability which will likely counter the use of Drones or Scanners so that they're position is not revealed through enemy tech.
Of course, the Sniper class will have a number of sniper rifles available to them to kill opponents from afar.
The heaviest class of all is the Support class. Wearing the highest level armor of all Wildlands classes, the Support will take the least damage, but will move slower and will not be able to move as far as others.
Support has two mines to use and the Jammer ability, but their overarching purpose will be to suppress opponents with their light machine guns.

In addition to the PVP classes, the weapons included in the coming game mode have also been revealed. The multiplayer game mode will feature many different classes of weapons such as: assault rifles, carbines, bullpups, DMRs, sniper rifles, shotguns, LMGs, SAWs, CMGs, SMGs, and PDRs.
Here are all the weapons found through the Ghost Recon Wildlands PVP datamine:
Assault Rifles, Carbines, and Bullpups
Generally the assault rifles, carbines, and bullpups are likely to be exclusive for the Assault class. However, some of the bullpups such as the VSS Vintorez, SRSA1, and RFB might be available to the Sniper class.
- SCAR H
- VSS Vintorez
- AUG A3
DMRs and Sniper Rifles
Most of the following weapons are assumed to be under the Sniper class, though the Assault class may be able to use some of the designated marksman rifles found in the files.
- Mosin Nagant
- GM6 Lynx
The shotguns found in Ghost Recon Wildlands' PVP are most likely to be utilized by the Engineer or Support classes. Scouts might be able to use them as well, but their kits looks to be a more silent approach.
- M4 Super 90
LMGs and SAWs
As seen in the leaked class overviews, the light machine guns and squad action weapons are exclusive to the Support class.
- Type 95
CMGs, SMGs, and PDRs
The Colt machine guns, submachine guns, and personal defense machine guns can be used by both the Engineer and Scout classes. If they are available as secondary weapons, then we may see them in the hands of all other classes, though it's unlikely.
- VBR PDW
- CZ Scorpion EVO
- Vector 45
- UMP 45
Each of the handguns found in the game's files should be available to all classes in Ghost Recon Wildlands' PVP game mode.
- FN Five Seven
All of the weapons listed above were found in Wildlands' game files, but they may not all be present on the multiplayer game mode's release.
Ghost Recon Wildlands PVP does not yet have a release date.
