The cavalry class is one of the new and most special classes that Battlefield 1 introduced. When starting the game you will be spawned on a horse (obviously). This is also one of the most difficult classes to play due to the fact that your main weapon is a saber sword. You do have a rifle as a secondary weapon but it is difficult to handle because the hors is not that stable. So you will be most successful using your saber sword but keep in mind that you are right handed. So the best way to cut down your enemy is getting them on your right side. Besides all this, the class is particular handy to drop ammo and medic kits in order to help you fellow teammates.
