What are Fireteams & Squads

FIRETEAM

A fireteam is a group of up to 8 players from the same side and working as a team. They are the equivalent of player guilds. They can also contain AI controlled Androids.

The person creating the fireteam becomes the leader and with the ability to setup map waypoints with specific orders for each member or the entire fireteam.

Groups that want to create larger fireteams can do so by creating several 8 player fireteams and giving them different named designations. e.g. Fireteam Alpha, Fireteam Bravo, Fireteam Charlie etc.

Also, only the leader of a fireteam will be able to build bases once that feature is implemented in a future update.

The following CTC are required to create a fireteam.

  • Advanced Programming Spec III
  • Advanced Tactical Specialist
  • Tactical Insertion Protocol

There is no CTC requirement to join a fireteam. You need 1000 GALCRED to create a fireteam, and at least 500 CEP to join a fireteam.

SQUAD

A squad is a team of up to 4 players from the same side and working as a team. They can only contain human players.

The person creating the squad becomes the leader.

Squad leaders cannot set waypoints or give orders to the team.
