  1. Veteran Skins

    The skins from the Kickstarter won't be available to anyone else. There's already been some other skins for players who played while an event was active I recall so there's potential for more eventually.
  2. July 2018 Recap

    I can pretty much guarantee that's not the same weight as you carry on tours. Besides, river crossings (what's shown in that video and are covered by most armies) are a different beast to swimming with your kit on.
  3. July 2018 Recap

    Know what else is "shitty and not real"? Being able to swim in your full load out
  4. Loot boxes, skins, pay to win elements that we all absolutely love!
  5. July 2018 Recap

    Helping your team win the round should be enough instead of worrying about points that mean absolutey sod all and topping the score board
  6. July 2018 Recap

    Dedicated trans/amour squads will come into their own here. I just wish more people did it.
  7. Fullscreen Game not responding alt-tab

    Known issue. Just don't alt+tab when loading.

    Just like it says in the video: "test fuel canisters". Just a mock up of how the damage model is able to interact with individual components on vehicles
  9. New Revive ability

    As an ex-combat medic I carried 2x grenade. Never used them in anger and I remember passing one over to a buddy while I was treating a casualty. I would have had no problems lobbing it at someone if I need to though. This may (again) just becoming from a British perspective but the "do not harm" as a medic was pretty BS. In a contact I was just another rifleman putting rounds down at the enemy until I was needed. Yes technically my weapons were for myself and my casualties protection but think about it...would you really just sit there not shooting in a firefight when you could just "protect yourself" and help out. No, no you wouldn't The Hippocratic Oath is pretty outdated these days and isn't legally binding. Thankfully over here we never had to bother with such a silly thing. On the subject of all team mates reviving....as mentioned before in the thread. These days all soldiers are trained how to treat themselves and others to a pretty high standard. Even the "militia" groups back in Afghan had a surprisingly high level of treatment and evac chain.
  10. New Revive ability

    We had a discussion quite a long time ago about what medical kit could be added even if it's just a cosmetic effect. All those ideas and more were thrown into the hat so you never know what's in store down the line.
  11. Giving the l85A2 new iron-sight

    I can personally guarantee that the BAF won't be receiving any cadet gear.
  12. I would be interested to hear if those who are overreacting about "aim punch" (when did that even become a saying?) and supression have ever played anything like RO:DH of any of the Red Orchestra series?

    Oh really?

    Not happening. Squad aims to simulate regular troops and snipers (as you describe) don't really fit that bill.
  15. Official Squad Forum Alert Level

    We're indubitably at OMG now.
