Please issue orders by spamming the select button, points for all only helps everyone.

But, but, ... I'm not the bossy type. Then my squad could get mad at me and TK me.

I need to be better about this. Once I'm in a squad I forget to check if I ever become SL. How does that work anyway? Is it whoevers been in the squad longest becomes SL?

I am always spamming the spot button. You can get tons of points by barking orders.

But, but, who actually pays attention to all those commands anyways? =))

I have to say, being SL can be a handful, remembering to issue orders for points and scanning the battlefield for bad guys, really putting multitasking to the test.

How and when exactly are squad leaders picked? I feel like there is only sometimes a leader shown with a star. Anytime I've ended up SL I usually realize it when I'm scanning and spotting op4 in the direction of an objective and notice I'm hollering about "attack this, defend that!" I do randomly see the extra points roll up after getting a kill, I rarely realize I was following orders, but always enjoy extra points!

The person who has been in that squad the longest gets the designation.

It really does help in terms of points but if you have a good tactical feel of how the game is flowing, you can issue some commands that can help the team if the blueberries are aware of whats going on.

Take for instance, you're about to cap a flag on your own and you want "back up", just issue the command to that flag and if someone follows, points all around.

Oh make sure you are not too close to the objective you want to issue the command as the system will not let you initiate a command.

I'm always spamming that spot button, but that means when I SL there are often loads of conflicting orders where I've said go to this objective but then I've spotted an OP4 soldier, and then I spot a chopper, and then there is that tank, etc etc.

What are the physical buttons on the controller to carry out these tasks?

Same as spotting op4, select on PS3 and back button on Xbox.

Spam away. You have to see the size of my left thumb from all of the Gymnastics. You can get a good number of points if you have a decent squad who sticks together.

Still not sure who gets selected as squad leader; I'm getting picked when I spawn in late and stuff.
