40 versus 40
Pitting several conventional and unconventional factions against each other, Squad aims to create authentic combat experiences utilizing a sense of being a part of something greater than yourself. Pick a side and become a member of a nine-man squad with your team to face off against 40 other players in intense, large combat environments. Squad features the US Army, Russian Ground Forces, British Army and Irregular Militia and Insurgents with their own unique arsenals.
Do you hear the sound of rumbling and grinding gears? Do you fear the inevitability of your short life at the end of a T-72 Main Battle Tank barrel? Get your Squad Leader to place down an anti-tank guided missile system and remove that pesky tank from the battlefield. In Squad, we provide numerous methods to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the battlespace. Place down emplacements like HMGs and AT guns, or build up a fortified position with sandbags, HESCOs, and razor wire.
The pinnacle of the Squad experience, communication is a soldier's best tool in effectively engaging the enemy. To help facilitate navigating the complexity of communication on the battlefield, we provide a world-class in-game VoIP system that allows you to talk to other soldiers locally, internally in your squad, between squad leaders, or squad leaders to the Commander. Also, we provide a plethora of other tools that fire team leaders and squad leaders may use to inform their squads and teams, such as map tools and in-world marking tools.
