Battlefield 4 squads
Battlefield 4 squads are small units of players on the battlefield. Squads in Battlefield 4 feature five soldiers — one squad leader and 4 squad members. Any player can join a squad and enjoy the benefits, which include increased teamwork, ability to spawn next any other squad member, and bonus points when completing tasks.
Battlefield 4 squads are led by the squad leader, who can give orders to the other members. When the other members execute an order, e.g. defend an objective, the squad leader gets additional bonus points.
Battlefield 4 squads features
Playing in Battlefield 4 squads carries many benefits. For one, you get access to any squad specializations that other players might have, and secondly, you can spawn next to any squad member anywhere on the map. If you don’t like the squad you’re in, you can always change to another one, provided there is room left.
Battlefield 4 squads have their own special in-game chat section, where they can quickly write each other messages with orders, info, etc. using Battlelog, players can also form and join Platoons, which bring additional clan-like features to the game.
Battlefield 4 squad leader
The Battlefield 4 squad leader is the player who originally creates the squad. If the squad leader resigns or changes squads during the game, the second player who joined the squad will become the leader. Only the squad leader can give out orders to members, and when those orders are carried through, the leader gets bonus points. The squad leader can get orders from the Battlefield 4 commander.
Battlefield 4 squad members
Squad members get the same benefits as the squad leader, albeit they cannot call in orders. Squad members are not punished for not following orders of the squad leader, but they are rewarded with bonus points if they do complete the task, such as capturing a flag.
It’s always a good idea to have a balanced set of classes in a Battlefield 4 squad. There should be at least one Assault class who can heal and revive fallen teammates, and one support class, who can resupply teammates. For tight infantry maps, it’s a good idea to have 2 assault and 2 support classes, while big, opens maps favor engineers and recons.
Since players can respawn next to any squad member who’s alive, it’s a good idea not to spawn immediately. First, make sure that your squad mate is in a safe place where you can respawn and not get killed instantly.
Battlefield 4 squads have their own unlocks and specializations, which can be unlocked and used by all squad members. For example a squad grenade unlock means that everyone in the squad gets an extra grenade. However, unlocks don’t stack. The better a squad performs in the match, the more field upgrades they get access to. Field upgrades include faster spring, more ammo, etc.
