Squad number

I stumbled across my squad button when i was 4 hours into the game, then i've been preaching the word in server. "SQUAD UP YOU TARDS (its the home key!)"

64 players:
- A three man squad seems a good number to take out the artillery/radar. 2 on spec ops, the driver a medic. The medic can pickup/ drop off or provide covering fire.

What squads have you been in, and whats a good number?

3 is good for spec ops as it makes your squad transportable in a buggy. I would consifer 2 Spec ops and a support kit as you can refill on c4 then.

5 people is nice for beach assaults. Can fit in a LAV or spread between a tank and a LAV. 2 Assaualt, 1 spec ops 1 medic, 1 support.

The spec ops as the squad leader, or it doesnt matter?

Can the medic heal himself? If not, the SL should be Support or something.

As a medic you throw weapon number 5 on the ground. then hit the use key "E" to soak it up.

Also its important to swap kits if your mate is a medic, then you can revive him This is especially true if you have a medic squad leader.

SL = medic, because even if he dies you just swap out kits and revive him...

Or... just pull out the repair and hold it and it will repair you and those around you....

Yeah same for ammo pack for support class. Just hold it out and refill everyone around.

Also medic\engineer\support refill all around them while in a vehicle.

Having 2x nearby tanks with a support class and engineer in each constantly repairing and rearming each other kicks ass :D.

True but i think its slower?

One thing i have noticed is that squads that group too closely together are an easy target from airstrikes and vehicles. Two examples popped up tonight. One airstrike took out our 5 man squad and my jeep took out 3/4 of a squad then jumped out to finish it off.

People need to learn to spread out a little more.

Oh and Mentasm is a rocking squad leader!
