Battery is another one of the nine specialists players can choose from in CoD: Black Ops 3. She is an explosive weaponry expert and dons a rugged heavy-armor set. Her weapon is capable of blowing away opponents with lobbed grenades and her special ability grants players additional health via an extremely durable armor coating.
Battery, who is otherwise known as Erin Baker, grew up in a military family. She has 5 brothers that, upon reaching the required age, all joined the military. As soon as she graduated high school, she did the same. She is a soldier at heart and has proven her mastery of heavy weaponry on the battlefield.
“The only daughter and youngest child of five siblings, Erin Baker always had to fight to get her way. Following in a family tradition of over 100 years of military service, and watching her brothers enter the US Army one-by-one, she finally graduated high school and enrolled herself. Driven to excel by her ongoing rivalry with her brothers, she volunteered for Airborne School, before crushing the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program. Heavily armored, she fearlessly operates ahead of the front lines, nimbly traversing urban environments, as she destroys HVTs with salvoes of advanced high-explosive munitions.”
If players choose to use Battery’s weapon they’ll get access to the War Machine, a launcher that lobs grenades that explode after just a couple of seconds. The range isn’t great on the weapon, but it can get kills both from the blast radius of the ‘nades and from hitting targets directly.
This gun can be used offensively, but is best used to defend capture points in objective-based game modes. Lobbing grenades onto an objective where multiple enemies are grouped, attempting a capture is highly effective and entertaining.
Don’t care for explosives? Well, Battery has another trick up her sleeve that may prove more useful to you. Her unique ability, Kinetic Armor, allows the player to rock a super-strong set of armor. While active, the armor gives your character the ability to absorb quite a bit more damage than normal.
The armor is an excellent choice for players that may lack skill or for those that just want to be able to rush enemy spawns and objectives without worrying about health depleting too quickly. It’s also great to turn on whenever your health reaches critical levels and you need to escape a bad spot.

Battery is one of the most underused classes in Black Ops 3, but it can be quite effective when used intelligently. YouTuber, Unknown Player, shows just how strong this character is with some gameplay using the War Machine special weapon option. Video is below.
