Dog In Trailer

As seen early in the trailer, the robot dog was airdropped into the fight that a squad was fleeing away from. The dog proceeds to run into an engagement where soldiers are trading fire. The trailers cuts to a different scene and the robot dog isn’t seen again.

Potential Specialist Tool

EA has yet to officially confirm how players can use the robot attack dogs in Battlefield 2042. The official site for the game confirms that players can choose Specialists who offer unique tools in battle as their character in matches. Potentially, EA may reveal a Specialist who can specifically call down these robot attack dogs and use them in battle.

In other first person shooters, attack dogs are often uncontrollable allies who enter the fight and hunt down any opposing soldier they can fight. Enemies must kill the dog on sight as their bites and lunges immediately kill any enemy it touches. As Battlefield 2042 features a small mounted turret and cameras, it could potentially be for recon with a way to defend itself if need be.
