The Trench Raider is an Elite Class featured in Battlefield 1, introduced in the Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass expansion. The Trench Raider's Raider Club can instantly kill an enemy within striking distance without a long killing animation, allowing for fast and brutal gameplay with this Elite Class. Coupled with a faster movement speed and higher durability than most, the Trench Raider also carries a Medical Crate for healing, smoke grenades, as well as a No. 3 Revolver and three frag grenades as backup weapons.
The Trench Raider is equipped with a gas mask and body armor that provides protection against firearms and possibly also melee weapon hits. The level of protection is less than that of the Sentry, but with more head protection than the other elite classes. The Trench Raider is still vulnerable to fire, explosives, and melee takedowns.
The Raider Club is able to kill in one hit without a takedown animation. This makes it possible to have No. 3 Revolver in hand and still chain melee kills together, making the Trench Raider more flexible in long distance engagements.
The Trench Raider makes a very distinct grunting noise whenever he attacks, even when firing the revolver. The Trench Raider also has a permanent speed boost, an ability that makes him faster than regular infantry soldiers.
