Specialists are the playable characters in Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer. Each Specialist is designed with a unique voice and personality, as opposed to the generic multiplayer soldiers in previous games. Each of them has both a unique weapon and a unique ability, but players can only choose one to use during each match. The chosen weapon or ability becomes usable for a short time after the player fills up their power meter; the power meter is filled up automatically over time, but fills up faster through earning score. Players also can only use one Specialist per match; Specialist selection is done before starting a match. There are nine Specialists, eight of which have been confirmed.

The PC beta for Black Ops 3 has brought a lot of leaks the last few days hidden in the files. The latest involves the ninth specialist character. The character appears to have a flamethrower weapon called “Purifier” and new ability called “Heatwave” which burns and stuns enemies.
