Specialty in Hattrick is an extra attribute present in about half of all players. One player can possess no more than one specialty. With the exception of Rare Specialties, the 5 Main Specialties available may impact on a match generating special events, resulting occasionally in a scoring chance and randomly in performances alteration due to weather. Every main specialty has a good and a bad side.

The same specialty is connected to different events: for example, Quick specialty can result in a quick-passing and a quick-scoring event in the same match. Some of the events that lead to a scoring chance are influenced by opposition players, sometimes leading to "game-planning", as in using a technical player against a head defender, or matching a quick defender against a quick forward.

The tactic Play creatively increases the odds of special events in a match, so players with specialty are needed.

Main Specialties

Head Head
Players with Head specialty can feature in special events during a match increasing scoring opportunities from corners and from a cross by a winger.
Each player adds about 7% average chance for a header event (the higher the number of head specialists in your team, the better your chances to score).
Each player reduces about 5% average chance for opponent a header event (the lower the number of head specialists among your opponent's, the better your chances to score).
Head is considered very effective in the game, but players with Head specialty have somewhat inferior footwork skills, which can be taken advantage of by an opponent with Technical specialty.
Powerful Powerful
Player's Defending, Playmaking and Scoring will work better in bad weather and worse in good weather.
Powerful Defenders skill counts double on the tactic level of Pressing.
Powerful players will have an advantage when performing Man Marking.
Quick Quick
Any Quick Winger, Inner Midfielder or Forward can start a quick rush to score with a possible pass in their mind. If the exact opposite player is also quick, then he has 100% chance to stop the attack. Otherwise, nearby quick players might stop it instead, but they have a much smaller chance.
Winger, Inner Midfielder and Forward will give a small boost on the Counter Attacks tactic (goes from 0 up to 2.8 tactic levels and this range is reduced by opponent Quick Wing Backs, Inner Midfielders and Defenders).
Unpredictable Unpredictable
Any Unpredictable player (except keepers) may read their opponents, dribble and create chances by sheer unpredictability of their passes.
Unpredictable Wing backs, defenders and inner midfielders can have a bad day and make a fatal mistake; the opponent can take advantage of this.
When Man Marking, an Unpredictable player will be harder to man mark than others, since you cannot predict him.
Unpredictable boosts Play Creatively tactic (experience and passing will be important).
Spec1Technic.png Technical
He performs better in good weather and worse in bad weather.
Any Technical Winger, Inner Midfielder and Forward can take advantage of it if the player on the exact opposite position is have Head.
During man marking, if your target is a technical player, then there might be a chance to have a bigger effect than any other player.

Rare Specialties

Some rare specialties also exist, in addition to the well-known five. Players with rare specialties are harder to find. Regainer was the first new rare specialty to appear.

Regainer Resilient or Regainer
helps the player heal injuries faster than others. If they get injured, their injuries will be less severe than they would otherwise have been, and they heal faster. They will also have their skill-drop kick in at a slightly higher age than other players.
Support Support
When support players will try to help teammates that are close by on the field, they can randomly increase (or rarely decrease) central sectors rate (this makes the teammates perform better if successful, but if not successful it can cause a drop in organization).
