Squad Reinforcement Elite Unit Request

[ Edited ]

Can we please get BF1-style elite units added in as a squad reinforcement? My idea is that after X points, you can call for say, a flamethrower. This new squad reinforcement can be earned through your weekly ToW assignment. Of course, more elites can be earned, too, like a buffed up foot soldier, e.g. US Army Ranger, ghillie suited sniper (sort of like BF1's tank hunter elite), Frogman, etc., each with highly specialized skills. Calling this in could trigger the option for one or more elite unit spawns for your squad, just as there's a separate spawn for the Sturmtiger or Crocodile tanks.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Hello. I think this is a good idea. However, some players may start base camps with "special soldiers".

A special paratrooper/Ranger/Commando would be pretty sweet. Nothing major, but I'd like to see a soldier similar in speed to BF1's Trench Raider or Infiltrator - this would pair nicely with Grand Ops or Breakthrough.

 

Extra armor in the form of Firestorm's metal plates would be neat (they would have to be a "one and done" type of armor though).

@ORANGE-EXPRESS It wasn't too bad in BF1, I think it would only be a minor problem if it were to happen.

Similar to how Battlefront 2 did their special reinforcement? @ISterlingArcher

@EA_Atic I've never played SWBF2 lol, so I wouldn't know how reinforcements are done there. But it should look like the BFV squad reinforcement tank spawns for the elites. On the deploy screen, after the squad leader calls in the elite for say a sniper elite (like BF1's tank hunter), a new symbol appears that you can click on and spawn in as the sniper elite (image example below).

Instead of being based on squad it's based on your performance.  @ISterlingArcher

You gain battle points while playing (Kills, objectives etc) and in the spawn screen you can use them to spend on X item.

@EA_Atic Hmmm I guess that could work, too. It would push for more individual work, as opposed to squad work, especially if there are a lot of new assignments added. 

 

If I'm understanding the SWBF2 model correctly, I think it should be limited to squad leader reinforcements, or we'll hypothetically have an entire team of elites (e.g. 32 sniper elites!).

There can only be limited amount Of X on the map on each side of the battle, aka only X amount hero and only 1 of that hero and depending on the stage of the map.

 

But yeah it 100% removes the squad play that we have in Battlefield, and something that Battlefield is known for.  @ISterlingArcher
