Update 6.0 - Infantry Combat Overhaul!
This is Squad's most substantial update to its gameplay yet: a complete overhaul of infantry combat, implemented to create the most fun, immersive, and authentic infantry combat experience possible. The Infantry Combat Overhaul is intended to put a greater emphasis on Squad's core tenets of teamwork and tactics! Work with your squad to overwhelm the enemy and seize victory from the hands of defeat!
Squad's revamped Suppression effect!
Lay down fire with the all-new suppression effect that is aimed to help on both attack and defense in any firefight. Use it to cover your squadmates effectively by obscuring the enemy's view and decreasing their ability to aim with suppressive fire. More powerful weaponry causes a more intense and longer-lasting effect, too.
Realistic Picture-in-Picture scopes!
The Infantry Combat Overhaul introduces more realistic sights through Squad's brand-new Picture-in-Picture scopes. Now when aiming down the scope of your favourite gun, you'll see a more true-to-life vision of your target as if looking through a real sniper scope.

50 versus 50
Squad creates authentic combat experiences while pitting conventional and unconventional factions against each other. As part of a 50 person team, join a nine-person squad to face off against an opposing 50 player team in intense combat across large real-world environments. Squad features the US Army, marine forces, Russian ground forces, British Army, Canadian Armed Forces, Australian Army, the Middle Eastern Alliance, Irregular Militia, and Insurgents, each with their own unique arsenals.
Adapt to the ever-changing needs of the battlefield by building fortifications and emplacements to give your squad and team the edge. Whether it’s placing HMGs and AT gun emplacements or fortifying a position with sandbags, HESCOs, and razor wire, the battlefield is yours to change, if you have the materials to do so.
Communication is a soldier's best tool in effectively engaging the enemy. To help facilitate navigating the complexity of communication on the battlefield, Squad provides a world-class in-game VoIP system that allows players to talk to other soldiers locally, in-squad, between squad leaders, or squad leaders to the team Commander. Map tools and in-world markers aid fire team leads and squad leaders to inform their squads and teams of engagement tactics.
