Battlefield 3 will feature four man squads similar to Battlefield Bad Company 2 however some changes have been made to the way spawning works.
In Battlefield 3 squad members will only be able to spawn on the squad leader, however the squad leader can spawn on any of the squad members.
Dice’s Alan Kertz revealed the information on twitter saying that it keeps pace up without tons of spawns.
“@Ahmad1Metallic Squad Leaders can spawn on any squadmate, squad members can only spawn on the Leader. Keeps pace up without tons o spawns.”
