Squad | 25% Off | Team-based tactical shooter

Steam Store link

For those that don't know what Squad is, it's a TvT tactical shooter made by the team that made the hugely popular Project Reality mod for BF2. Squad is like a combination of the original Battlefield games and Arma - requiring alot of teamwork and communication to succeed.

It's currently on sale for 25% off (summer sale). I would pick it up. Awesome game. Many of us here have it (including me).

Note: The game is still in early-access, but it's been very fun to play so far, and vehicles are coming in late July (which look awesome).


P.S
I made this thread separate to the Squad thread as this is the first time Squad has gone on sale.

It's worth mentioning that the game is still in early access and will be for quite some time.

Good point MeFirst. Added note.

and yet just from the video's it looks an utter blast!

Any man that can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

If you buy it, give it a couple of weeks before you play. The sale will draw the CoD kiddies and Battlefield friends out, who frankly ruin the game

How easy is it to access servers ?

Some reports suggest that new players are frequently kicked by "Vets"

Others have stated that some servers are locked making it difficult to actually get a game.

How have you lads found it?

I have never seen anyone getting kicked from the server. What happens (and it's something that I have done in the past) is that you kick people out of your squad. Especially "Vets" of Project Reality will frequently kick people out of their squad who decide they want to go lone wolf and not stay close to the rest of their squad.

Purchased this in the sale today if anyone fancies a game at some point soon? (As Dave said though, might give it a couple of weeks)

Get a 3CB section going!

Got a copy also, so if anyone is putting a group together and sees me about on TS, feel free to throw a poke my way.
