Emma “Sundance” Rosier is one of the playable experts of Battlefield 2042. 

She is non-binary, which makes them the first character in EA’s long-running series to identify as such. 

Sundance’s biography uses gender-neutral pronouns (they/them) on the shooter’s official website. This led a fan to ask on Twitter if they identified to be a non-binary character. 

Adam Freeman, EA’s chief community manager, confirmed in his response: “Yes. Sundance is non-binary.”

Smart Explosives

Sundance is amongst 10 specialists in the game. And you can choose to play within the large maps of the game. 

Their equipment includes a wing suit that allows you to slide across large tracts of land to approach targets and firefights. 

They can also throw Smart Explosives. Once thrown, it will spray on enemy vehicles to cause considerable damage. 

Sundance is not available in the most recent beta, so their unique toolkit may appease those who were previously dissatisfied with the degree of differentiation between the various characters.

The character is also black, fans praise their hair, a seemingly small detail that many games have not done well.

Since Battlefield 2042 lacks a traditional battle mode, Sundance’s gender identity and the fact that they are also black are unlikely to have a significant impact on the game and its combat skills.
