On September 30, 2010, the MAG 2.0 patch was released that drastically changed the skill system. With the inclusion of an in-game currency and a weapon/gear/attachment/armor purchase system, many skills used in the old skill system became obsolete. The Personal Defense, Electronics, Heavy, Explosives and Support skill trees were dismantled and all the remaining relevant skills were redistributed among the old trees and 5 new ones: Special Ops, Medical, Engineering, Vehicles, and Resistances. All skills cost only 1 skill point each now and no skill bestows equipment.


The skills are unlocked sequentially, with each skill bought unlocking the one(s) connected to it. Every skill has three levels of mastery (e.g. Assault Swap Speed 1, 2, and 3) with each level of mastery enhancing that aspect of combat further, or sometimes even granting additional benefits (e.g. Improved Vehicle Awareness). One skill point is gained per level, to a maximum of 70 skill points throughout a soldier's career.

Each skill is organized by class: Field Support, Commando, Rapid Assault, Direct Action, or Sniper. A soldier's class is determined by the majority of the type of skills that soldier has purchased. In other words, when a soldier invests mainly in one type of skill, the soldier assumes that class.
