Honest question re: spectators

I'm with 4 lads in a party, but also the last one of us alive
Circle is small and know for a fact it is 1v2 BUT I have 4 spectators
Is this mysterious spectator the 3rd man of the squad I'm up against?
(therefore can see exactly where I am and - ergo, ipso facto - telling his squad where I am)

    I could be wrong here but if someone in a squad kills you then you can tab through the members and watch them. You might have had someone hang around and watch.

    They do that alot, and that is why the should put the spectator onto the teammates. on onto the enemy players, because many people die at the beginning just to help their team out killing other people.

    Thing is, inevitably I lost, then the squad screen showed 3 players - so I'm pretty sure my position was given away

    That's what I was meaning - someone in another squad was relaying information after being killed. Basically I think your suspicions were correct.

    That sucks! I mean, it has to be a design flaw, right?

    It does seem open to abuse. I was fiddling about with the spectator aspect in another thread about people doing this kind of thing in solo, so it does seem that people are doing this: https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/184613/possible-cheating-method-in-firestorm#latest
