Hey guys was thinking that the Devs may have missed an opportunity for some cool and unique game-play elements with the squad leader reinforcements.

I was thinking about unique perks for each class if they are a squad leader as of now you can call a supply drop, panzerwagon, rocket and a crocodile tank etc. Was thinking about the following, I have arranged them in cost to call in reinforcements.


Recon Class Squad Leader:

Low: Supply Drop
Medium: Use combo of spotting scope and call in artillery strike
High: Rocket

Assault Class Squad Leader:
Low: Supply Drop
Medium: Tank buster plane: spot tank and have tank buster plane drop bomb
High: Rocket

Support Class Squad Leader:
Low: Supply Drop
Medium: Bomber Strafing run, with machine gun fire on path on ground troops
High: Rocket


Medic Class Squad Leader:
Low: Supply Drop
Medium: Smoke Screen, planes provide a large drop of smoke to cover an advance on an objective
High: Rocket



These aren't final just wanted to see what you guys thought of the idea and see what you guys would come up with if this were to make it into the game!

    I would love to see some sort of revised reinforcements like you have lined out above. But I would make some of them harder to obtain due to their high potential to be game changers if deployed correctly. I like the idea of rewarding/promoting good squad play that BFV has implemented, and would love to see that system of reward evolve in the direction you have detailed. The options you have lined out above would really bring a nice refinement to the game in my opinion.

    Thanks for your comment! I was really hoping this post would bring some good discussion and more ideas, but it doesn't seem to be getting the traction i had hoped!

    Totally agree with your points on being a game changer if point values were not set correctly. I think with the correct balance this would work out really well! I mean, if they balanced the points to use the medium level options you would essentially be limiting your ability to call in a rocket. And the rocket can really sway a game.

    Now you got me salivating over cool reinforcements. And as for that rocket it can be your best friend or worst enemy. Sunday on Arras playing Breakthrough, I hit 18 players with our rocket and talk about devastation!! It was because my squad mate was paying attention and not only reminded me that we had a rocket, but also put a marker on where he thought the rocket should go and I just sent it to his marker. Needless to say we instantly got the objective and moved forward. For full disclosure though, it was a long game and we got a second rocket towards the end of that same match. I launched that bad boy with a **** grin only to miss everyone entirely. This cost us the match I believe as we were down to the last objective as attackers with few reinforments left, and we ultimately lost. So rockets can be the the path to glory or the most embarrassing moment makers in the game. But either way, it brings a fun new element to the game, and I would like to see more things like that.

    A smoke screen option would be good, although I'm sure I saw that was coming in the next patch, possibly an artillery barrage?!?

    Oh I could be full of poop :/

    haha you aren't full of poop! even if you are wrong....

    Cool ideas. As someone said, these are kind of like CoD killstreaks, which were always fun to use. The best part is that they encourage squadplay. Nice work!

    They're not wrong as both an artillery barage and smoke screen are being added next month.

    That is just awesome....will be fun to add some customization to your squad play....smoke screen is going to be so useful in PTFO modes, and i hope the artillery barrage is more like the pigeon strike from BF1. Another cool element they are adding to the game.

    when they add new factions it will be interesting to see if they allow some crazy new squad reinforcements.....

    imagine playing as a Japanese faction and calling in a kamikaze on a specific ground target, and hearing the pilot on the radio

    would also be cool to add some NPC reinforcements such as a flame-trooper.

    Yeah it's a really good thing that they're adding more options and I've got high hopes for the artillery strike being similar to BF1 as well. That kamikaze idea sounds really good to me too :) It could be their version of the V1 perhaps?
