I’ve been putting a little bit of time in with Battlefield 3, and I’ve had some thoughts about what my ideal 4 man squad would be. I’ve actually got a couple of different squads depending on how the opposition is playing.
I also tend to play only objective based game modes (rush & conquest) not TDM, so that has an impact on the setup. It should also go without saying that the squad should be actively communicating on Mics and playing the objectives and their roles (dishing out medi-packs, throwing down ammo, etc).Opposition is pwning with Helis / Jets
2 Engineers (with SAM), 1 Support & 1 Assault — Engineers should concentrate on bringing down the air-support working as a pair. Both lock-on to same plane, Engineer 1 fires, target will likely fire flares, Engineer 2 waits for flares and then fires before the pilot can re-deploy counter-measures. Support keeps the engineers stocked up with rockets and looks out for ground-troops. Assault should hang back ready to revive if necessary.Opposition is using tanks
1 Engineer, 1 Support, 1 Assault & a Recon (with SOFLAM) — Recon needs to be marking vehicles for engineer. Support and Assault the same as before.
