-The Recon class is ideal for collecting and distributing information about the opposition to the rest of the squad.

-The Engineer can fix tanks, jets, helicopters, and other means of transport which the team uses.

-The Support class makes sure that everybody has plenty of ammunition.

-The Assault takes care of patching together all who experience an unpleasant meeting with the opponents’ weapons.

A Brief Guide to Squads in Battlefield 3 Multiplayer

Battlefield 3 multiplayer guides: Squads

This guide is meant for those who want to improve their team-playing abilities, in order to shine in Battlefield 3 multiplayer.

Saying that squads are important in Battlefield 3 online is an understatement. Teams are the very essence of the Battlefield games, as anyone who played Bad Company 2 as a lone wolf, before ending up in a well-functioning squad, can attest.

A squad that works well together can make life miserable for its opponents. I experienced this myself, not only as a member of such a team, but also while playing against a perfectly coordinated squad, that left me staring at my screen open-mouthed, wondering what had hit me.
Some Facts

Battlefield 3 multiplayer squads consist of up to four players.

Dice has also reintroduced the spawn system from Battlefield 2: each squad has a leader and the others on his or her team can player spawn only on that leader. This is different from Bad Company 2, where players can spawn on any member of their squad.

Updated November 1st: Turns out that everyone can spawn on everyone within a squad, plus the Recon radio beacon (the mobile spawn point).

If you play in Hardcore mode, you will only be able to spawn on the squad leader.
The Benefits of Squads

The chances of Battlefield 3 multiplayer success are greater if you play on a squad compared to playing on your own.

Here are some:

* Spawning: as I wrote earlier, all members on a squad can spawn on each other (only on the Squad leader in hardcore mode). When you do this you will often end up closer to where the action is. The alternative – when you play alone – is to spawn at the base, further away from the fight.
* Tactical spawning: the ability to spawn on a squad member can be used tactically. Players can position themselves behind the enemies or near an objective. Now, squadmates can spawn at this location. This little trick can both surprise opponents and (as an example) make it easier to arm and defend a charge at an M-COM station.
* To be formidable: do you think its okay to walk up to the bullies on your own and ask them to leave you alone? Or would you feel better if you could bring two or three friends? Being part of a pack has its advantages – also in BF3. Four players who attack simultaneously pose a much greater threat than one single player.
* Coordination and orientation: your squadmates’ markers will have a different color on the mini map than the other players. This makes it easy to keep track of where they are any time. Very handy if you ever end up far away from your squad.

Another obvious advantage is the rewards; you will receive greater rewards if you are part of a team.

For example: if you play as an engineer and repair a vehicle that does not belong to your squad, you’ll get 20 points. For repairs to a vehicle belonging to your own team, you get an extra 10 points, totaling 30 points.

there are just three clicks to be a teamplayer ;)
