The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 3. The kit is more akin to the Battlefield 2 kit, as it is equipped with Ammunition Boxes, used to replenish ammunition for teammates. With the introduction of the Suppression system, the Support class takes on an additional role of being a key presence by effectively shaping the battlefield by diverting and dispatching opposing forces.
This allows the player to cover an area by fire whilst maintaining accuracy. In conjunction with gadgets such as the M18A1 Claymore and M224 Mortar, the Support class is able to adapt to urban and open combat. Support players are also able take on an anti-armor role with C4, a feature absent from previous Battlefield titles.

The Support kit is featured in Battlefield 4, functioning identically to its Battlefield 3 counterpart. However, the Support class can now be used as a more versatile role, as it has accesss to its characteristic Light Machine Guns, along with Shotguns, Carbines, and Deesignated Marksman Rifles, alllowing it to fill a number of different roles such as close quarters assault and sniping. The kit also has gained several different gadgets and can now utilize a new grenade launcher, the XM25, allowing neutarlization of targets behind cover.
It is also worthwhile to note that the XM25 also has Smoke and Dart configurations, much like the M320. The Support still retains use of both C4, Claymores and the redesigned M224 Mortar, allowing it to be remotely operated, and its signature Ammo Boxes. The class also has access to the new Ammo Packs, which are similar to Ammo Boxs, but instead only supply two magazines of ammo (for both primary and secondary) per use, but two can be thrown down at once and can be tossed signifigantly further than Ammo Boxes.
The MP-APS is also a new gadget taking the form of a countermeasure allowing for 180 degree defense of an area from grenades and rockets. It can be rotated via a control device instead of having to manually reposition it, much like the mortar.
A persistent bug may occur whereas the player cannot spawn as Support. If attempted, the game will crash upon spawn. Prolonged inactivity from the class seems to solve this bug.

- Even when the US support is using a weapon that doesn't load using a bullet belt he will still have a belt wrapped around his neck.
- The US Support appears to wear a USMC Lightweight Helmet.
- The Russian Support wears a blue telnyashka (Russian: тельняшка) signifying him being VDV or GRU Spetsnaz.
- The Russian support carries a Cold Steel Shovel that some Spetsnaz use as a CQ and throwing weapon.
- The Russian support wears a Rys-T Titanium bulletproof helmet worn by Russian special operation teams like the MVDs, SOBR, and OMON police units.
- Even though the Russian Support wears short sleeves and full finger gloves, from a first-person perspective, it looks rather more like long sleeves and fingerless gloves. The same goes for the Assault class in the USMC side except the other way around.
- The class poster before the alpha shows the medic cross for the support and the bullet for assault, referencing the classes' roles in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
- In the Battlefield 3 expansion Aftermath, the US support class is one of the two classes that wears sunglasses (The other being the Recon class). However this as no effect on gameplay, as the sun glare still exists if playing as the Support Class.

- The US support resembles Montes from singleplayer.
