COD: WW2 Divisions guide - all you need to know about COD’s new class system

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions guide

Create-a-Class. Pick Ten. Rigs. There have been many names for the class system in COD multiplayer across its various yearly updates. COD: WW2 Divisions is the latest incarnation and thus carries a shiny new name, but the approach is largely the same: a set of distinct class archetypes that can be moulded with different weapons and perks. Confused? Well you’ve every right to be, frankly, but let our COD: WW2 Divisions guide show you the way towards enlightenment and a marginally less embarrassing K:D in one of the best World War 2 games on PC.

So little time, so many ways to frag things – here are what we think are the best FPS games on PC.

When creating a new soldier in multiplayer, you have a choice of five COD: WW2 divisions. Each is split into several core components: division skills (an active ability that you can use in battle), division training (passive abilities that shape your role on the field), basic training (selectable perks that further define your role), and the selection of weapons your chosen division excels with.

The five COD: WW2 divisions available are:

COD: WW2 Infantry division

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions classes Infantry

The Infantry division is all about well-rounded attacking. Equipped with rifles such as the chunky automatic BAR or the self-loading M1 Garand, Infantry are able to lay down fairly accurate, sustained fire at most ranges. Up close, their core skill allows them to charge down opponents with a fixed bayonet. Infantryman training means this division can apply attachment mods to both primary and secondary weapons, granting increased granular control over their arsenal. This COD: WW2 Division is all about pushing the objective and racking up kills.

Division skill
Bayonet charge

Special training on the use of the bayonet makes Infantry riflemen a threat at all ranges.

Division training
Infantryman III

  • Two extra attachments on primary weapon
  • One attachment on secondary weapon

Exceptional care of their weapons allow these fighters to outgun the rest.

Basic training

  • Immune to shell shock and tactical equipment
  • Sprint for longer distances

Dependable in battle, your squad knows you will make it through the barrage.


  • Reveals enemy equipment
  • Take less explosives damage

A flak jacket and keen perception mean enemy explosives don’t worry you.

Primary weapons

M1 Garand

Secondary weapons

Colt 1911


M18 smoke grenade
Mk. 2 fragmentation grenade

Infantry division Prestige weapon


COD: WW2 Airborne division

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions classes Airborne

Favouring rapid movement and fast-firing submachine guns, the Airborne division is Call of Duty: WW2’s answer to a traditional assault role. They are a little stealthier than your classic run-and-gunners, though, thanks to the optional suppressor provided by their division skill. Combined with their training, which allows them to run faster and for longer, the Airborne COD: WW2 Division is the best class for swift, unseen map traversal.

Division skill

Hides muzzle flash and prevents gunfire from appearing on enemy mini-maps, but reduces range of weapon.

Division training
Pathfinder III

  • Sprint for longer distances
  • Increased sprint speed
  • Climb over obstacles faster

Outlasting the opposition on their territory requires extreme physical conditioning.

Basic training

  • Extra piece of lethal equipment
  • Smoke grenade as tactical equipment

Hide your advances then blast the enemy into submission.


  • Quieter movement
  • Take no fall damage
  • Invisible to enemy recon aircraft while moving

Fall behind enemy lines without alerting hostiles.

Primary weapons

Thompson M1928

Secondary weapons

No. 74 ST sticky bomb

Airborne division Prestige weapon


COD: WW2 Armored division

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions classes Armored

The Armored COD:WW2 division may not come outfitted with a tank, but they are the beefiest option. They’re the class that hauls light machine guns and rocket launchers onto the battlefield, and so are the natural option for those looking to pack a loud, messy punch. Thanks to the bipods provided by their division skill, they can easily set up a solid defensive position and hose down enemies with relentless suppressive fire.

Division skill

Protect territory by mounting your machine gun. Mount on ledges and while prone for less recoil.

Division training
Tanker III

  • Rocket Launcher as secondary weapon
  • Extra piece of equipment
  • Throw equipment faster, farther, and while sprinting

Force the enemy out of their strongholds with explosive might.

Basic training

  • Extra magazines
  • Reload weapons faster

Suppressive fire requires a lot of ammunition, but you’re prepared.


  • Move faster while aiming down sights
  • Extra attachment on primary weapon

Confidence in your weapon means that you never let it leave your eye.

COD: WW2 Mountain division

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions classes Mountain

Say hello to the Mountaineers, COD: WW2’s sniper division. Their scoped bolt-action rifles make them great long-distance riflemen, although every pull of the trigger needs to count due to the slow cycling of rounds. Their division skill makes scoring perfect shots a little easier thanks to aim assist, and they are able to see the names of enemies from farther away thanks to their class specialist training. Of all the COD: WW2 divisions, the Mountaineers will likely be the trickiest to get frags because of the searing pace of COD multiplayer.

Division skill

Block out the surroundings and, in return, acquire aim assist and enemy names.

Division training
Scout III

  • Acquire enemy names from farther away
  • Increased mini-map coverage
  • Hidden to player-controlled Streaks

Scout enemy territory and report critical intel that advances the war effort.

Basic training

  • Kill without revealing enemy death locations
  • No name or reticle colour change when targeted

Keeping the enemy in constant fear, you strike when least expected.


  • Swap weapons faster
  • Throw equipment faster
  • Resupply ammo and equipment from dead enemies

The latest supply shipment may never arrive, but that doesn’t concern you.

Primary weapons

Springfield M1903

Secondary weapons

Colt 1911


Bouncing Betty pressure-activated mine
No. 74 ST sticky bomb

Mountain division Prestige weapon


COD: WW2 Expeditionary division

Call of Duty: WWII Divisions classes Expeditionary

If you like your combat close and personal, the Expeditionary COD: WW2 division is for you. You’ll need to quickly close the distance between you and your target if you want a round from your shotgun to deal the killing blow, but get in range and the Incendiary shells certainly do the business efficiently. Expeditionary training allows their soldiers to carry more ammo and take less damage from explosions, and the right perk will even allow them to re-roll unwanted Care Packages.

Division Skill
Incendiary Shells

Shotgun rounds which spark flames that burn enemies to death.

Division Training
Sapper III

  • Extra magazines
  • Immune to shell shock and tactical equipment
  • Take less explosives damage

Midnight raids of ammo depots have left these soldiers well-equipped to fight.

Basic Training

  • Scorestreaks cost less
  • Re-roll Care Packages

Being a favourite of high command certainly has its benefits.


  • Two attachments on secondary weapon

Few soldiers treasure their side arm like you do.
