Battlefield 2042s early access has now begun, but before it was even accessible to some players in certain time zones, DICE had to disable one of the main abilities for a Specialist. Dozer is one of the Assault specialists and his main ability is the SOB-8 Ballistic Shield essentially a massive riot shield that protects him and his teammates. The only problem is that before DICE disabled the shield, it was able to make those using Dozer almost impossible to kill.

Clips have been circulated online of players shooting at Dozer with a full mag from an LMG and not being able to land a hit, and there have also been reports that the shield could deflect tank shells and grenades as well.
