Perhaps the most important change is the addition of the Squad System. Squad Leaders act as a mobile spawn point for up to five other squad members, so if one can penetrate deep behind enemy lines, they become the biggest threat to capturing Check Points. Working together as a squad pays off big time: you and your squad-mates will complement each other in unending ways that make this the most heavily armed game of rock/paper/scissors ever. For example, if your squad gets wiped out by an enemy armor unit, respawn on your Squad Leader as an Anti-Tank team. Sweet revenge is built right into Battlefield 2.
